The GeForce RTX 3050 GPU comes equipped with 2nd generation RT Cores for ray tracing and 3rd gen Tensor Cores for DLSS and AI which means now you can play ray traced games on a 50-class GPU at over 60 FPS. The cards will feature 8GB of GDDR6 memory on a 128-bit bus.
Nvidia says that instead of having to wait for long renders, DLSS acceleration allows artists to visualize designs in real-time. At the same time, video editors can now work on 8K Raw footage as well.
The GeForce RTX 3050 includes several other benefits including NVIDIA Reflex, NVIDIA Broadcast app for AI-powered voice and video, NVIDIA Encoder, NVIDIA Studio, Game Ready Drivers, and Studia Drivers.
