EVGA has announced its new GeForce RTX 3050 XC series graphics cards, the GeForce RTX 3050 XC and GeForce RTX 3050 XC Black. Both feature an exclusive design that features placed cut-outs in the PCB and backplate for improving airflow and decreasing exhaust recovery. The GeForce RTX 3050 XC includes a metal backplate, and both can be controlled via EVGA’s Precision X1 software. Pricing and availability have not been revealed.

The new EVGA GeForce RTX 3050 brings the performance and efficiency of the NVIDIA Ampere architecture to more gamers than ever before and is the first 50-class desktop GPU to power the latest ray traced games at over 60 fps. The RTX 3050 comes equipped with 2nd generation RT cores for ray tracing and 3rd generation Tensor cores for DLSS and AI. Ray tracing is the new standard in gaming and the RTX 3050 makes it more accessible than ever before.

The EVGA GeForce RTX 3050 cards punch above their weight with the latest Ampere GPU, 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM, and a 14GHz memory clock to enable solid performance even at 1440p. The XC Series tradition continues with a shorter PCB, dual-slot cooling and a quiet, zero decibel fan mode, making the EVGA GeForce RTX 3050 a perfect choice for the entry level gaming users.

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 dad, a used Atari 400, around 1982. Eventually it would end up being a lifelong passion of upgrading and modifying equipment that, of course, led into a career in IT support.
