Alongside Intel's launch of the 11th Gen Core "Tiger Lake-H" desktop processor series, NVIDIA debuted its mid-range GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (mobile) and RTX 3050 (mobile) graphics processors. Both chips are designed with typical 3D power ranging between 35 W and 80 W. Both chips are based on the new 8 nm "GA107" silicon. This "Ampere" chip physically packs 2,560 CUDA cores across 20 streaming multiprocessors, with 80 tensor cores, 20 RT cores, and a 128-bit wide GDDR6 memory interface.

The GeForce RTX 3050 Ti (mobile) appears to be maxing out the GA107 silicon, featuring all 2,560 CUDA cores, 80 tensor cores, 20 RT cores, and 4 GB of GDDR6 memory across the chip's 128-bit wide memory bus. The RTX 3050 is slightly cut down, with 16 out of 20 SM enabled. This works out to 2,048 CUDA cores, 64 tensor cores, and 16 RT cores. The memory remains the same—4 GB GDDR6. Clock speeds will vary wildly depending on the notebook model, but typically, the RTX 3050 Ti can boost up to 1695 MHz, while the RTX 3050 can boost up to 1740 MHz. Both chips take advantage of PCI-Express 4.0 and Resizable BAR. The company didn't reveal memory clocks.

If the RTX 3050 performs acceptable with raytracing, anywhere near the lowest previous mobile turing rtx, fine.
But how is the pricing?

4GB is dismal, though this was likely intentional to prohibit mining.

That's nowhere near enough Video Memory.

I'd say the sweetspot you should be aiming for is a 3070 with 8GB or even a 3060 with 6GB.

If you're buying a laptop to use for basic gaming, you shouldn't need more than a 3070.

If you are, however, buying a "Desktop Replacement" aim for the 3080 8GB.

"NVENC and NVDEC support matrix" is still not updated for 3060, nor for 3050.
Are there any reputable sources stating specs (or at least "Nth Gen") for NVENC/DEC on GA106 and/or GA107?
They may have cut it down like on 1650...

Member when you said the 2080Ti is still a good 1080p card lmao

The line starts at $1,149 for the lowest-end G5.

RTX 3050 Ti has 2,560 CUDA cores, 80 tensor cores, 20 RT cores, and 4 GB of GDDR6 memory across the chip's 128-bit wide memory bus.
GTX 1650 Ti has 1,024 cores, 0 tensor, 0 RT, and 4 GB of GDDR6 with a 128-bit bus.
RTX 2070 has 2,304 cores, 288 tensor, 36 RT, and 8GB GDDR6 with a 256 bit bus. So less cores but double the memory and bandwidth.
RTX 3060 is 3,840 cores, 120 tensor, 30 RT, and 6GB GDDR6 with a 192 bit bus.

The 3050 Ti has 2.5x the cores of the 1650 Ti yet the same memory?
The 3060 barely beats the 2070 in games (at the same power) even though it has 67% more cores. Seems that the memory really gimps it...?
The 3050 Ti is basically 67% of a 3060 across the board... so that should be a decent gauge of its performance. Memory will be holding it back. I guess ~50% faster than the 1650 Ti (even with 2.5x the cores!... and 80W vs 50W) and the 3060 (@115W) is another 50% faster than the 3050 Ti.
