As NVIDIA prepares for the launch of its new line of graphics cards with a focus on notebooks, some information ends up reaching the public before its official presentation. After receiving validation from the GPU-Z utility, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti card had several specifications confirmed in the database.
Characterized as an entry-level, the hardware will feature the GA107 GPU, being one of the simplest models based on the Ampere architecture found in the manufacturer’s catalog. Therefore, we have a chip equipped with 2,560 CUDA cores, 32 ROPs, and 80 TMUs with a PCI Express interface. x16 3.0.
It is worth noting that the GPU-Z is not accurate about the number of texture mapping units (TMU) present in video cards that have not been officially released, therefore, this amount may be limited to the aforementioned 80 units. The architecture lithography, although absent from the list, must correspond to the 8 nm standard.
Tested on equipment from the Taiwanese manufacturer Clevo / Kapok – possibly a notebook not yet released – the graphics card should have 4 GB of GDDR6 memory with a 128-bit bus and a bandwidth of 192 GB / s, reaching clocks of 1,222 MHz and, in the optimized mode, reaches 1,485 MHz.
Performance data regarding ray tracing and DLSS are still unknown, in addition to official information regarding the TDP adjustment, however, given that they are aimed at devices that require efficient energy consumption, the heat dissipation capacity should remain proportional to the data obtained from leaked benchmarks.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti card is expected to have slightly higher performance than the sister hardware, RTX 3050, and will be found in more affordable notebooks. The hardware can be introduced near the launch of Intel’s Tiger Lake-H family of processors. Therefore, the new graphics cards should be officially announced soon.
