After introducing RTX 3050 laptop GPU last year, NVIDIA at its CES event introduced the RTX 3050 desktop GPU built on Nvidia’s Ampere architecture, has 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM and promises up to 60FPS 1080p gaming. It also introduced RTX 3070 Ti and 3080 Ti laptop GPUs for 1440p gaming at up to 100 fps and up to 120 fps, respectively.
NVIDIA has not introduced the founders edition model of the RTX 3050 GPU, so you will have to rely on third-party vendors like ASUS, Zotac, Gigabyte, MSI, Palit, Inno3D, Colorful and others.
