NVIDIA is reportedly planning to launch its GeForce RTX 3050 for budget gamers relatively soon, but the graphics card won’t limited to a single configuration.

That’s according to famed leaker kopite7kimi, who claims that NVIDIA has cooked up two versions of the GeForce RTX 3050. The weaker one, which leverages the GA106-140 GPU, will supposedly feature 2,304 CUDA cores and 4 GB of memory, while the more powerful model is said to utilize the GA106-150 GPU and feature 2,560 CUDA cores and 8 GB of memory.

Kopite7kimi suggested last year that NVIDIA had been planning to use the GA107-300 GPU for the GeForce RTX 3050 and that there would only be one model available with the same CUDA core count as the new and alleged 4 GB model. The card was also said to feature at 90-watt TGP.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 will supposedly be announced on January 4 alongside the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti during CES 2022, which runs from January 5–8, 2022. Its rumored launch date is January 27.

    The only conceivable reason is to deceive consumers. It ought to be illegal. They should have clearly observable separate product names.
