Hopes for a low-cost GeForce RTX 3050 are misguided

The GeForce RTX 3050, Nvidia's most cheap Ampere graphics card, will go on sale on January 27th, but the first batch has already been sold in Japan. It's difficult to determine how many video cards were sold through the local Amazon site, but they were gone swiftly - in a matter of hours. You might also admire the cost. It cost $440, which is 76% higher than the stated price of $250. Remember that the novelty is officially priced at 25,000 rubles in Russia. How much will it actually cost at the store?

We can argue that because Japan has high taxes, the price is excessively exorbitant and that the novelty will be cheaper in other nations. However, the fact is that the entire globe is suffering from a graphics card scarcity, and Japan is no exception: the prices for 3D cards in this nation generally match the overall picture. Furthermore, keep in mind that Galax marketed a very basic version of the GeForce RTX 3050 for $ 440 (the official model designation is GALAKURO Gaming GG-RTX3050-E8GB / SF).

A regular printed circuit board, no factory overclocking, and a rather rudimentary cooling system consisting of one fan and two heat pipes. The back panel lacks a heat distribution plate. Solutions with a more powerful cooling system and factory overclocking turn out to be even more costly.
