Nvidia plans to release a new version of the GeForce RTX 3050 video card with less memory and lower power consumption. The WCCFTech portal reports this with reference to sources.
The stripped-down GeForce RTX 3050 will offer 6 GB of video memory with a frequency of 1470 MHz, while the standard version has 8 GB of memory with a frequency of 1552 MHz. In addition, the bus width of the new video card will be 96 bits, and not 128 bits, like the standard version. The new video card will consume less energy: 70 W versus 115 W for the standard one. This will allow the new product to be used in more compact and quiet systems.
The price of the new video card has not yet been announced, but Wccftech suggests that it will be about $150 (about 14.9 thousand rubles). This will make the new RTX 3050 accessible to many users who want high performance and support for Nvidia’s ray tracing technology.
The new video card should appear on the market in early 2024, and its low cost will allow it to compete with the budget Intel Arc A580 graphics accelerator.
