CES 2022: PNY Announces GeForce RTX 3050 Lineup
PNY’s RTX 3050 Options Announced
PNY has announced upcoming availability of GeForce RTX 3050 graphics cards, with new models going on sale starting January 27. Pricing was not listed in the PR, but in normal times this xx50 launch would bring the current series down to a budget-friendly level, as with the GTX 1050 and GTX 1650 before it.
“The GeForce RTX 3050 brings the performance and efficiency of the NVIDIA Ampere architecture to more gamers than ever before and is the first 50-class desktop GPU to power the latest ray traced games at over 60 fps. The RTX 3050 comes equipped with 2nd generation RT cores for ray tracing and 3rd generation Tensor cores for DLSS and AI. Ray tracing is the new standard in gaming and the RTX 3050 makes it more accessible than ever before.”
The PNY RTX 3050 Cards
PNY sent over images of three different models, with single and dual-fan XLR8 REVEL editions and a dual fan PNY UPRISING card. The REVEL editions offer EPIC-X RGB lighting, though non-RGB versions are also being offered.
“The GeForce RTX 3050 delivers improved throughput and efficiency versus the prior gen, for a huge leap in the performance as compared to the GeForce GTX 1650. Featuring 8GB of high-speed GDDR6 memory, combined with real-time ray tracing, these cards bring unparalleled ingame performance and realism to gamers everywhere. Gamers and content creators will experience boosted-performance with the GeForce RTX 3050, to get the most out of their system.”
PNY lists bestbuy.com, amazon.com, pny.com, and “other eTail partners” for the January 27 launch, but actual availability is something we can probably only dream about for the time being.
