NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050/3050 Ti Laptop GPU Specifications & Performance Leaked

The NVIDIA RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti laptop GPUs are the next-generation mid-range offerings from NVIDIA for the notebook sector and will soon replace the GTX 1650 and GTX 1660 Ti. The new graphics cards will feature an adjustable TDP in the range of 35 watts all the way up to 80 watts which will greatly impact performance and battery life. The RTX 3050 will feature 2,048 CUDA cores and a base clock between 713 MHz, and 1,530 MHz while the boost clock will vary from 1,057 MHz to 1,740 MHz depending on the selected TDP. The RTX 3050 Ti increases the core count to 2,560 with similar base clocks at 735 MHz to 1,463 MHz along with boost clocks in the range of 1,035 MHz to 1,695 MHz. The two cards will both feature 4 GB of GDDR6 memory with a bandwidth of 88 GB/s. We have a good idea of the expected performance of these cards, with leaked synthetic and gaming testing putting the RTX 3050 Ti near the RTX 2060 Max-Q while the base RTX 3050 trades blows with the GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q.

Depends on the game, also 88 GBps bandwidth sounds really low for GDDR6 or is that a typo :wtf:

Probably typo.

188 GBps would make more sense, as that's the actual bandwidth of GDDR6 running at just shy of the typical 12Gbit/s on a 128-bit bus.

with only 4GB, not particularly well, no.

If it had more miners would be all over them. Now all you have to worry about is scalpers.

-As a 4 GB card / 1080p user myself, I would like to down clock that statement and instead say it is just "OK" for 2021, and it certainly won't age well.
Naturally there is a difference between actual used VRAM as well as allocated VRAM and DDR6 will certainly help to push back running into the bottleneck a bit.
Nonetheless, 4 GB are not plenty in general @1080p any more and won't be going forward.

Really nice minus the 4GB of VRAM & the 88Gbps memory bandwidth

These look like a decent upgrade seeing how 1650/1650 Ti were not that much faster than 1050/1050Ti they were replacing.

Close to GTX2060 performance for €300 this year? Naahhhh.

Hopefully a 75w desktop variant without 6-pin connector will arrive soon. But the problem will be availability and real life pricing. Right now the cheapest 1650 non-super start from 280 EUR (and 6700xt from 980 EUR!!!).
About bandwidth it's probably a typo, GTX1650 D6 has 192 GB/s, +50% compared to the DDR5 version.

What is this 2014 ?
GPUs today should have a minimum of 6GB

For reals tho, 4GB would not be sufficient even on todays standards, most games today consumes 5 Gb minimum

Settings to medium and you'll be fine with 4gb. I hardly ever play with the nicest textures anyway, just a waste of processing to me.

3050 Ti has enough power for even max settings in many games in FullHD yet because of insufficient Vram we should lower the settings to medium according to you? Then what's the point in buying this card? You can just buy some used card for a lot less.

If it has enough power for max settings then play in max settings? I was just saying for me and the games I play, I like to set textures to medium. Even in Overwatch that could run on a Switch. That's me. I'll take FPS over super sharp textures.
