Nvidia released its much anticipated RTX 30 series earlier this year, and so far, the green team has announced its RTX 3060, RTX 3070, and RTX 3080 to have laptop variants. We also know from various rumours and leaks that Nvidia also plans to release RTX 3050 series GPUs. And from sources, we have found that the RTX 3050 Ti will also be joining the RTX 3050, and both will have TGPs ranging from 35 W to 80 W.
According to sources, the RTX 3050 can say to be a low-powered version of the RTX 3060 and the benchmark results point that the RTX 3050 and RTX 3050 Ti is capable successors to the GTX 16 series. According to 3DMark Time Spy Graphics and Shadow of the Tomb Raider, RTX 3050 offers significantly better performance than the GTX 1650 and GTX 1650 Ti. The RTX 3050 may even have the edge over the GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q in games.
Coming to the RTX 3050 Ti, the card crosses the GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q in 3DMark, however, its score is no match for the GTX 1660 Ti. The RTX 3050 Ti outperforms the RTX 2060 by a wide margin in Shadow of the Tomb Raider at Medium settings in 1080p, which has an 80-90 W TGP. The RTX 3050 Ti matches the RTX 2060 Max-Q at Ultra settings, too.
