If rumors surrounding NVIDIA’s future releases were a drinking game, we’d all be sloshed by now. The latest comes from well-known leaker kopite7kimi. It is about a possible NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050. To date, this would be the lowest entry-level card for the GeForce RTX Ampere lineup.

Breaking this down, we have a GA107 GPU with a 90 W TGP and 2,304 CUDA Cores (twice as many as the GTX 1650). No memory specs have been announced, but it is believed to have 4 GB on a 128-bit bus. Let’s take a look at the growing list of rumored cards and specs, compiled from our stories and information from VideoCardz.

GeForce RTX 3080 TiGA-102-1501049620 GB (GDDR6x)320-bit320W

NVIDIA has not made an official statement regarding these yet, but the specs seem plausible. It remains to be seen whether NVIDIA is planning more powerful RTX variants (e.g., SUPER) or something lower, like a GeForce RTX 3040/3030 or GTX.

As a child of the 70’s I was part of the many who became enthralled by the video arcade invasion of the 1980’s. Saving money from various odd jobs I purchased my first computer from a friend of my...

  1. Here’s hoping for a low profile (LP) version so tiny case users have something other than the 1050ti to look at.

    Another option for us Plex, Emby users.

    Yup!
    Also probably a good option for laptops with DLSS and more efficient RTX voice.

    90w… If it was 70w we could use without a PSU/pcie connector ;). My server has dual PSU’s but they plug right into motherboard and don’t have connectors. Without some soldering I’m pretty limited on what I can install in my Plex server.

    I had a 1050Ti in mine for transcoding, MSI version with no power connecter. Went to my wife’s system since apparently AMD can’t make decent drivers for content creation and then found out that they [I]also[/I] don’t support Windows Server with their desktop parts, because why would anyone ever do that. Can’t even install a basic driver.

    Regardless, I’m hoping for a replacement ~70w part with the latest NVENC. That was the only real problem with the half-Turing 1600-series, that only the higher-end parts got the Turing NVENC.
