TECH NEWS – The GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card was also unveiled at the Nvidia conference, with a lower price tag.
It seems that Nvidia developers have noticed that hyper-realistic games are becoming more and more common, which is why many gamers are considering buying graphics cards. True, the company has already given some joy in this area by revising the RTX 3080 and 3070 cards, but this time it’s also offering users two brand new options: the GeForce RTX 3050 and the long-awaited GeForce RTX 3090 Ti.
Nvidia launches 160 GeForce RTX-based notebooks
As expected, the new graphics card outperforms the popular RTX 3090 in terms of performance and memory, delivering unprecedented graphics quality for PC gaming. From a technical perspective, the manufacturer’s new offering features 24GB of 21Gbps GDDR6X, which boosts memory speeds by 7.7%. In other words, video games will run with better performance for 4K graphics and AI tasks.
Continuing the praise of the RTX 3090 Ti, the developers say it will boast 40 teraflops of processing power, 11% more than the previous version of the graphics card. However, we are still waiting for Nvidia to provide more information about its product, as it has not yet detailed some technical aspects, as well as the price and release date.
What we do know are the GeForce RTX 3050 features, dedicated second-generation RT cores and third-generation Tensor cores. On top of all this, the graphics card will feature new streaming multiprocessors and will run games with better quality thanks to the high-speed G6 memory. The RTX 3090 Ti is expected to be available at a more affordable price of €279 (roughly £101,000) on Nvidia’s website from 27 January.
In addition, the company plans to introduce 160 new notebooks with GeForce RTX graphics cards and new generation CPUs. As things stand, it is not yet known whether the graphics cards will be readily available, as parts shortages and cryptocurrency mining are making it challenging to source key gaming devices at the moment.
