Palit's GeForce RTX 3050 StormX OC is a highly compact RTX 3050 variant that's only 17 cm long, so it'll fit into a lot of ITX cases. Despite the compact looks, the card still offers a small factory overclock, and achieves very low temperatures with good overclocking potential.

Decent performance (almost an RTX2060 ) @1080p , all the features are enabled, and performance almost identical for those with PCIe 3.0 motherboards , and i've heard that this GPU is not ideal for mining.
As always , the availability (thus price) will be the key factor...
Thank you Wizzard for another superb analysis.

Definitely shares the looks with their own GALAX Pegasus- series: Not that it is bad thing of course.

This cooler is sufficient for a 3050. Now, if the 3050 is available at MRSP tomorrow, it would be the greatest deal in GPUs in a while.

"Palit's card is a highly compact dual-fan, dual-slot design that will fit into a lot of smaller ITX cases."

Thanks for the amazing review ,I just want to refer for this minor error , obviously a single fan.

Power consumption is a bit high for 8nm, about the same as 1660 with 12nm.

Crazy how the cooler performs better than the gigabyte one! wow.

I feel like this would be a neat little card for a low power ITX build, throw in some undervolting becuase why not.

cost savings , though every reviewer said that it doesn't appear to impact its gaming performance at PCIe gen 3.0 platforms .
about 1%-2% deviation in frames...

Are they all under the same parent company ?

Because Plait, PNY, and Gainward cards most of them look the same, almost if they'r being made by one company and distributed them across regions where these sub brands are most well known

Well sort of, Palit is the giant behind them all making manufacturing. But there is a difference: Gainward is wholly owned by Palit since 2005 while PNY is private American company, which Geforce line cards comes from different Taiwanese ODMs(mostly from Palit now-a-days).

To go along with W1zzards review, BudgetBuilds did a review of this same card and had very high praise(except for the price);
