Today marks the debut of the latest RTX 30-series mobile graphics cards from Nvidia. The RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti GPUs are destined for the next wave of productivity and compact gaming laptops. Both cards feature real-time ray tracing as well as NVIDA’s Deep Learning Super-Sampling (DLSS) which leverages AI cores to help you run high demanding games and apps with upscaled resolution and frame rates through proprietary algorithms.
The RTX 3050 comes with 2,048 CUDA Cores and runs at 1,500Mhz speeds while the RTX 3050 Ti brings 2,560 CUDA Cores humming at 1,485Mhz. Both are outfitted with 4GB GDDR6 video memory with 128-bit memory interface width and draw 35 – 80W of power.
Nvidia claims the new RTX laptop GPUs offer a 4x boost in games and nearly 2.5x better performance in video editing compared to last-gen graphics cards. Both new RTX models can go beyond 60fps with ray tracing enabled in titles like Call of Duty: Warzone, Watch Dogs: Legion, and Control.
You’ll find the new RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti graphics cards in new laptops from the likes of Dell, HP, Lenovo, Gigabyte, MSI and Razer starting at $799 and available later this summer.
