In an $800 package, the GeForce RTX 3050 and 3050 Ti deliver all of Nvidia’s latest cutting-edge features.

Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3050 GPUs

Samsung’s loose lips spilled the truth: Nvidia launched the new GeForce RTX 3050 and 3050 Ti laptop GPUs, with ray tracing, performance-boosting DLSS technology, and supercharged creative capabilities. Nvidia timed the announcement to coincide with the launch of Intel’s heavy-duty 11th-generation Core H-series CPUs, and the RTX 3050 GPUs will be available in laptops starting at $799.

That’s a huge deal.

Nvidia released RTX technology with the newest GeForce graphics cards, which featured dedicated RT cores for real-time ray tracing and tensor cores for AI-accelerated workloads. However, cutting-edge technology never made its way into mainstream laptops. Instead, RTX 2060 laptops started at $1,200 and went higher from there.

The GeForce RTX 3050 and 3050 Ti bring Nvidia’s advancements to a considerably more affordable price. The most eye-catching feature may be ray tracing. Still, DLSS 2.0’s miraculous AI-enhanced gaming speeds and substantially increased performance in creative applications can take advantage of those dedicated AI. RT cores might genuinely shake up the sub-$1,000 laptop market.

Nvidia launched a new series of RTX Studio laptops with seven designs incorporating the GeForce RTX 3050 or 3050 Ti. New Studio laptops with higher-end Nvidia graphics and Intel’s latest CPUs will enter the market, boasting up to double the rendering speed of previous-generation models.

Creative goodies aren’t only for professionals. With features like background noise elimination and AI green screens, Nvidia Broadcast uses machine learning on tensor cores to clean up the aesthetic of your Twitch streams and YouTube movies.

Those functionalities will be available on both RTX 3050-series and Studio laptops. To sweeten the deal, Nvidia also revealed that, effective today, Broadcast can now mute the sound of pets and cicada swarms, thanks to an upgrade.

While those RTX features should make a statement in the mainstream pricing bracket, I don’t anticipate a quantum leap in performance in traditional games, but the RTX 3050 series should deliver a good bump over the GTX 1650.

Thanks to the remarkable capability of DLSS 2.0, Nvidia is presenting these modest GPUs as excellent solutions for 1080p gaming at 60+ fps per second, even with ray tracing enabled in some titles. (Previous-generation GTX 1650 laptops didn’t enable ray tracing or DLSS.)

These laptops may notice enhanced performance in some games thanks to PCIe Resizable BAR technology, available in RTX 30-series laptops.

The GeForce RTX 3050 and 3050 Ti have 4GB of GDDR6 memory on a 128-bit bus and use 35 to 80 watts of power. (With Nvidia’s variable power settings, searching for a gaming laptop has become considerably more difficult.)

The RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti GPU tech specs suggest that they will be a significant drop down from the gaming performance of older RTX 30-series laptops.

Nvidia has published an overview of the whole RTX 30-series Laptop GPU specifications (including the RTX 3050 and 3050 Ti).

While the RTX 3060 laptop edition has 3,840 CUDA graphics cores for no-compromises 1080p and outstanding 1440p gaming, Nvidia claims the RTX 3050 Ti will have 2,560 cores, while the RTX 3050 will have 2,048.

Those cores have clock rates over 200MHz slower than those found in the more expensive RTX 30-series Laptop GPUs, while boost clock speeds obtained during gaming are comparable to those seen in their beefier relatives.

The power and cooling capabilities of your laptop will almost certainly influence how quickly your RTX 3050 performs.

ACCORDING TO NVIDIA, the RTX 3050 Ti will have 80 tensor cores and 20 RT cores, while the 3050 will have 64 tensor cores and 16 RT cores. The mobile version of the RTX 3060, on the other hand, has 120 tensor cores and 30 RT cores.

Resizable BAR allows your laptop’s CPU to access all of the GPU’s RAM, which can improve performance in specific situations.

Overall, these GPUs appear to provide decent Medium- to High-quality 1080p gaming experiences for the price, though we’ll have to test RTX 3050 laptops to be sure—especially considering the wide variety of possible wattages, which can have a considerable influence on performance.

Nvidia does not provide any performance data for the RTX 3050, just for the 3050 Ti. RTX 3050 laptops support the amazing latency-reducing Nvidia Reflex technology as contemporary GeForce platforms in some competitive games. Nvidia’s numerous third-generation Max-Q technologies are available to laptop manufacturers (like an upgraded Whisper Mode and Dynamic Boost 2.0).

Nvidia stated that RTX 3050 laptops would begin at $800 while RTX 3060 laptops would begin at $1,200. Don’t be shocked if RTX 3050 Ti gaming laptops come in just around $1,000. ACCORDING TO NVIDIA, existing GTX 1650 laptops will be sold until mainstream notebooks shift to the new RTX 30-series options. If you’ve been having trouble finding a graphics card, a new gaming laptop could exactly be what you need.
