NVIDIA is preparing the launch of an entry-level graphics card based on the Ampere architecture, sometimes later in the year, with possible dates being this or the following quarter. The GeForce RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti are supposed to be the slowest SKUs in the whole Ampere lineup, representing the least expensive choice from the entire generation. However, we are wondering what the cards will look like and what are some design choices NVIDIA will introduce to these SKUs. Lenovo, the maker of the popular various kinds of laptops, has accidentally listed these exact SKUs in the specification section of its Legion gaming laptop.

The GPUs in question are NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti mobile edition SKUs, probably based on the GA107 GPU SKU. Both versions are equipped with 4 GB of GDDR6 memory running on a 128-bit bus. The regular GeForce RTX 3050 SKU is configurable from a TGP of just 60 to 80 Watts. NVIDIA has a Dynamic Boost technology that will pump that by additional 15 Watts and max it out at 95 Watt SKU, which this laptop uses. The maximum boost clock frequency of these cards is 1695 MHz and 1740 MHz, for the RTX 3050 Ti and RTX 3050 GPUs respectively.

Eager to see where these cards land in terms of performance, as they seem to be a more compelling product compared to the previous gen 1650.

I'm guessing these will be the 2060 and 2060 Super of Ampere. They "support" RT, but can't really run it.
I imagine the desktop versions will have 6GB of GDDR6, since the 1660 had 6GB and it wouldn't make sense to pair less VRAM with a more powerful card.

The 3060 mobile version has 6gb, the desktop has 12gb. So maybe 8gb 128-bit memory config?

At notebookcheck you can find the actual clocks at different TGPs RTX 3050 and RTX 3050Ti. Both have TGP in range of 35-80W and only 4GB vram. Performance should be pretty good, but 4GB is too little.

I hope a low profile model is out to replace the gtx 1650lp.

DLSS that is what i would mostly use out of an 2xxx/3xxx card. RT is just a bonus for those with the cash to spare for that hardware.

they'll be on 1080p or 768p laptops, 4GB is fine there

And dont forget what DLSS will do for laptop gamers, THAT will be a game changer

Its very troubling to find that the power consumption is creeping up for a low end part. Considering that desktop version of the GTX 1650 maxes out at 75W and the mobile part maxes out at around 50W, this goes up to 95W (max) for a mobile part don't look too good. While its got more than double the CUDA Cores that will translate to higher performance, but I wonder by how much because the memory bandwidth will likely hold it back. The RT cores will do no good for a card at this range anyway.

Heh, the 3060 has performance similar to 2060 Super. So 3050 will be bellow it. But the MSRP will probably be the same yes, not that any of the cards you can get are at MSRP.
