GeForce RTX 3050: Step Up To RTX

The new GeForce RTX 3050 brings the performance and efficiency of the NVIDIA Ampere architecture to more gamers than ever before.

GeForce RTX 3050 graphics cards come equipped with 2nd generation RT Cores for ray tracing, 3rd gen Tensor Cores for DLSS and AI, and 8GB of high-speed GDDR6 memory. Meaning, for the first time, you can play ray-traced games on a 50-class GPU at over 60 FPS. RTX-powered ray tracing and DLSS are the new standard in gaming (there are already over 200 RTX-enhanced games and apps), and the GeForce RTX 3050 makes them accessible to millions of gamers.

Venerable previous-gen 50-class cards are fast falling behind in popular rasterized titles, they lack the performance for competitive gaming in the most popular shooters, they’re unable to offer their users transformative ray-traced effects that take image quality to the next level, and they can’t benefit from the miraculous performance boosts offered by NVIDIA DLSS.

Of course, with the GeForce RTX 3050, you also get the many other benefits and features of our platform. That includes NVIDIA Reflex to minimize your system latency in games, the NVIDIA Broadcast app for AI-powered voice and video, NVIDIA Encoder for great streaming, NVIDIA Studio to accelerate and enhance creative applications, our reliable Game Ready Drivers and Studio Drivers, and much more.

With all this technology, you can stream your ray-traced gameplay at over 60 FPS, with improved audio courtesy of NVIDIA Broadcast, and if you need to work, you can complete it far faster thanks to industry-leading app GPU acceleration, AI, deep learning, and ray tracing.

GeForce RTX 3050 Reviews:

Ahead of the new GeForce RTX 3050’s release, tech sites and YouTubers have taken the card for a spin, putting it through its paces in gaming benchmarks and every other test you can think of. Here’s some of what they had to say:

  • “Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 3050 delivers great 1080p gaming performance with modern features, including capable ray tracing chops and DLSS.” - PC World
  • “I would call the RTX 3050 the new 1080p60 king…” - Venture Beat
  • “This launch from NVIDIA, however, ticks all of the right boxes. As the “GeForce RTX 3050” series branding implies, the RTX 3050 should be a generational leap over the previous-gen GTX 1650 it supplants in NVIDIA’s GPU line-up. And NVIDIA hit that target – the GeForce RTX 3050 is a huge upgrade over older xx50-series cards that not only offers much better performance, but additional feature support as well.” - Hot Hardware
  • “Our testing shows the RTX 3050 to be the new standing performance leader in its class.” - PC Mag
