GPU from GeForce RTX 3060 and two versions with 4 and 8 GB of memory. New details about the GeForce RTX 3050

New and rather interesting details have appeared on the Web about the promising Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 graphics card, which is expected in January 2022. Perhaps the most interesting thing: now it is not the new GPU GA107 that is attributed to it, but the well-known GA106 used in the GeForce RTX 3060. But, of course, not full-featured, but as stripped down as possible.

Reportedly, there will be two versions of GA106 for the GeForce RTX 3050: GA106-150 with 2560 CUDA cores and GA106-140 with 2304 CUDA cores. Accordingly, the amount of GDDR6 memory in the first case will be 8 GB, in the second – 4 GB. It is not clear how these video cards will differ in retail on the store shelf, but there is no question that one will be called the RTX 3050 Ti, and the second – the RTX 3050, since the RTX 3050 Ti should be much closer in characteristics to the GeForce RTX 3060. Previously, the GA107 GPU was credited with 3072 CUDA cores – and this is already a suitable basis for the RTX 3050 Ti.

Why isn’t Nvidia willing to use the new GA107 GPU in the GeForce RTX 3050? Perhaps the company just wants to make the most of the defective GA106, which, for obvious reasons, are not suitable for the GeForce RTX 3060, but for the one below the model they are quite suitable.

Recall that the premiere of the GeForce RTX 3050, like other new products from Nvidia, is expected on January 4 during an official event timed to coincide with the CES 2022 exhibition.
