The first GeForce RTX 30 for less than $ 300, also with 12 GB of memory

Nvidia has released mobile GeForce RTX 3050 graphics cards for quite some time, but there are no desktop versions yet. This is despite the fact that in January we are expecting a lot of new cards of the RTX 30 line, but all of them will be significantly more expensive. 

According to the new data, the desktop model RTX 3050 Ti will receive a GPU GA106-150-A1 with 3072 active CUDA cores. This is the same GPU that powers the GeForce RTX 3060. The mobile RTX 3050 Ti is powered by the GPU GA107 with 2560 CUDA cores. 

Also, the desktop novelty can have either 6 GB of memory or 12 GB. In this case, the bus is likely to be 192-bit. Desktop GTX 3050 should get 4 or 8 GB of memory and a 128-bit bus. 

The source is the insider kopite7kimi, who very often shares information about video cards. He was the first to reveal the characteristics of the older RTX 30 cards long before the announcement. But in this case, he notes that the data regarding the RTX 3050 Ti is a rumor, so this should be borne in mind. 

Unfortunately, it's unclear when the lower-end Ampere desktop adapters will come out at all. Perhaps their delay is due to a shortage of chips, and it is still more profitable for Nvidia to produce GPUs for more expensive solutions. However, AMD has nothing new in this segment either. The upcoming Radeon RX 6600 will be a direct competitor to the RTX 3060. In terms of pricing, there have been rumors of $ 250-270 for the RTX 3050 Ti, which makes sense considering the RTX 3060's MSRP is $ 330.
