✍️NVIDIA Unveils the GeForce RTX 3050 6GB with Lower Power, Reduced Memory Capacity, and Fewer CUDA Cores✍️
NVIDIA has officially released the latest GeForce RTX 3050 6GB, featuring reduced power, memory capacity, and fewer cores compared to its higher-end counterparts. This version is considered the slower edition, albeit with some differences in performance and memory capacity. The 96-bit memory bus in the 6GB variant, in contrast to the 128-bit memory bus in the 8GB variant, affects the card’s performance.
Two MSI graphics card variants are currently available for sale, starting at €185, while Gigabyte has also introduced new 6GB models in a press release. The Gigabyte models appear similar to the 8GB variant but come with a reduced profile design.
On the other hand, the MSI models feature three display connectors but lack a power connector. Additionally, recent findings on Goofish have revealed the existence of the latest GA107-325 GPU in Gigabyte’s RTX 3050 6GB PCB design.
Notably, the latest RTX 3050 is equipped with only a few CUDA cores, with up to 2304 – a 10% reduction from its higher-end counterparts. It also operates with a reduced power limit of 70W, resulting in a 40% decrease in power consumption.
