During the CES 2022 keynote, NVIDIA announced the RTX 3050 budget graphics card for PC. It is the cheapest entry in the RTX 30-series so far. In this article, we will be discussing the specs, features, price, and availability of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 graphics cards in Nepal.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Overview:
As with the other cards in this lineup, RTX 3050 is also built on the Ampere architecture. Thus, it comes equipped with NVIDIA’s second-gen RT cores for ray tracing, and third-gen Tensor cores for DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) upscaling.
RTX 3050 features a total of 2560 CUDA cores with a base clock of 1.55 GHz and a boost clock of 1.78 GHz. It has 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM and a 128-bit wide memory lane, while it also supports Resizable BAR.
NVIDIA claims that the RTX 3050 can handle 60fps gaming at 1080p resolution with ray tracing turned on. The company also compared it with the older GTX 10 (1050, 1050 Ti) and GTX 16-class (1650) graphics cards, where it outclassed them all. However, it is to be noted at the RTX 3050 has DLSS that the other cards don’t—which directly factors in on the higher fps count.
