The NVIDIA RTX 3050 rumors have become quite old for now. However, the AIBs were notified about this SKU in January of this year, but the series was shelved until October for reasons only NVIDIA knows about. That’s when Kopite7Kimi revealed some new details about the RTX 3050 series. He claims that the RTX 3050 Ti will have a GA106-150 GPU, while the non-Ti RTX 3050 will have a GA107-350 GPU. There has been a minor change to those specifications, according to reports.
The GA106-150 GPU will arrive in a graphics card known internally as PG190 SKU 70. Although it was initially thought of as the RTX 3050 Ti; the reports now suggest that it is the non-Ti variant. Moreover, it could feature up to 8GB of RAM, but we couldn’t confirm this.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 performance
The GeForce RTX 3050 might outperform the GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER, but not as well as the RTX 2060 12GB. The latter will be released next month. This suggests that the card will compete with the speculated RX 6500XT, which is set to ship in the first quarter of 2022, rather than the Radeon RX 6600 series. In addition, the Intel Arc A128 might arrive later.
Moreover, all of these cards will target the same gaming segment, which is 1080p casual/e-sports gaming.
The RTX 3050 isn’t the only new card on NVIDIA’s internal roadmap; the RTX 3090 Ti, RTX 3080 12GB, and RTX 3070 Ti 16GB variants are also set to ship early next year. The chart also includes board and SKU numbers. It should make it easier for you to keep track of all of these new cards. This is especially crucial when NVIDIA switches board numbers between SKUs.
