The RTX 3050 is built on NVIDIA’s Ampere architecture. It marks the first time that ray-tracing has been available on an entry level (50-series) card. Second generation ray tracing cores can be switched on for more realistic light simulation, albeit at a hit to performance. The 3050 features 2560 CUDA cores, a boost clock frequency of 1.78 GHz, 8 GB of the latest GDDR6 memory and NVIDIA’s DLSS. DLSS technology uses the 3050’s tensor cores to scale up resolutions whilst maintaining high frame rates and without losing significant image quality. The 3050 also includes an encoder (NVENC) for sharper images and smoother capture whilst recording/streaming. The MRSP of entry models is $249 USD, however, street prices are closer to $600 USD. Early benchmarks show that the 3050 only headlines around 35% faster than AMD's 6500 XT whilst street prices for the 3050 are 100% higher. Many experienced users simply have no interest in buying AMD cards, regardless of price. AMD’s neanderthal marketing tactics seem to have come back to haunt them. Their brazen domination of social media platforms including youtube and reddit resulted in millions of users purchasing sub standard products. Experienced gamers know all too well that high average fps are worthless when they are accompanied with stutters, random crashes, excessive noise and a limited feature set. [Jan '22 GPUPro]

Recently released 1 December 2019 for consumers, this GPU serves as competitor against AMD's own RX 580 and Nvidia's GTX 1060 6GB, GTX 1650 SUPER and GTX 1660. This GPU comes with 1408 stream processors which is clocked at 1670MHz and can boost up to 1845MHz on stock setting, also comes with 4GB of GDDR6 VRAM with 128 bit bus width. This GPU score 58.1% on GPU benchmark which is on par with AMD RX 580 and Nvidia GTX 1650 SUPER but below AMD RX 590 and Nvidia GTX 1660 and GTX 1660 SUPER. This GPU costs $160 which is same as the pricing of GTX 1650 SUPER but this GPU requires a bigger wattage PSU as this GPU consumes 150W compared to GTX 1650 SUPER which is 100W. [Dec '19 ColdSpy]
