Buyers still can’t get enough fresh RTX 3070 and RTX 3080 due to resellers and maintainers, and foreign analysts share insider information about the characteristics of future boosters.
The @kopite7kimi4virgil user, which is gaining popularity among insiders, shared information about Nvidia’s budget line of video boosters. He tweeted today that the Nvidia RTX 3050 will run on the GA107-300 chip.
It is also known that this chip will have 2304 CUDA (FP32) cores and will take no more than 90W of power. This information gives a reason to compare the approximate power of the graphics card with existing RTX 2000 models on the market.
For example, RTX 2060 has 1920 CUDA cores, but runs on a bus of 192 bits. If we take into account that all the boosters GTX x50, xx50 worked with a bus 128 bits, then the novelty is likely to be built on this principle. You will get a rough parity in power models, but the RTX 3050 has a big advantage in reduced power consumption.
The memory size of the novelty is still unknown, most likely it will be 6 GB of GDDR6 type.
