NVIDIA Launches the GeForce RTX 3050 6GB with Less Power, Reduced Memory Capacity, and Fewer CUDA Cores

NVIDIA finally and officially introduced its latest GeForce RTX 3050 6GB, which unfortunately comes with less power, reduced memory capacity, and only a few cores. This is probably the slowest edition as compared to the higher and more powerful 8GB variant. Although there’s a lot of difference in this particular variant, the deduction in the memory capacity forces the card to significantly depend on a 96-bit memory bus, which is much more unnatural as compared to the performance of the 128-bit memory bus-based 8GB variant.

There are two MSI graphics card variants that are certainly listed for sale, with their prices beginning at €185. With that, Gigabyte revealed new 6GB models through the press release. While it seems like the Gigabyte models are more or less the same as the 8GB variant, the reduced profile design is newly added.

Whereas, talking about the MSI models, which are unfortunately limited to the three display connectors and have no power connector, At the same time, an image regarding Gigabyte’s RTX 3050 6GB PCB design has been spotted on Goofish, disclosing the existence of the latest GA107-325 GPU. However, this specific GPU is not in use by any RTX 3050 variant currently. Still, a few retailers believed that this GPU might belong to either 8GB or 4GB variants, respectively. The only thing that can be noticed through the images is that there are no power connectors on this GPU.

In contrast, the latest RTX 3050 also comes with only a few CUDA cores with up to 2304, which is a significant 10% reduction. Even with the reduced power limit of 70W, that means it will only operate with more than 40% less power.
