NVIDIA will finally release its GeForce RTX 3050 for budget-oriented gamers next year. This is according to a report by VideoCardz, which has learned that the graphics card will launch in Q2 2022 and leverage the GA106-150 GPU instead of the GA107-350 that was previously rumored. Sources claim that the GeForce RTX 3050 will feature 8 GB of memory and offer performance greater than the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER.

From VideoCardz:

A graphics card which is internally referred to as PG190 SKU 70 will feature GA106-150 GPU. It was indeed rumored to be RTX 3050 Ti, but our source now believes it is actually the non-Ti model. We were also told that it might feature 8GB memory, but we couldn’t verify this claim with other sources […].

As we were told, the GeForce RTX 3050 is to have higher performance than GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER, but still lower than RTX 2060 12GB, which is launching next month. What this means is that the card will not compete with Radeon RX 6600 series, but rather the rumored RX 6500XT which is to launch in the first quarter of 2022. Additionally, we also have Intel Arc A128 (rumored SKU name) coming a bit later.

NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 3050 will presumably be ideal for 1080p gaming, but GeForce fans who are seeking more power can look forward to a handful of additional GeForce RTX 30 Series models in the near future. They include a GeForce RTX 3090 Ti, GeForce RTX 3080 (12 GB), and GeForce RTX 3070 Ti (16 GB), all of which are expected to release next year.

  1. Not sure that’s a good marketing strategy. “Our soon-to-be-released video card is faster than our low budget card released two generations back!”

    Well, yeah. It should be.
