Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 and 3050 Ti laptop GPU specifications revealed by Lenovo

Despite not being officially announced by Nvidia yet, the long-rumored GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and RTX 3050 mobile graphics cards have had their respective specifications leaked by Chinese PC manufacturer Lenovo.

These new laptop GPUs are anticipated to be the lowest entry in the Ampere series, and previously leaked benchmarks indicate we should expect performance somewhere between the GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q (a smaller, cut down version of the usual mobile GTX 1660 Ti used in slimmer devices) and the RTX 2060 Max-Q, making these the first graphics cards to include ray tracing below the usual 60 series, with the previous baseline being the RTX 2060.

Videocardz reported on the information listed on the Lenovo site that reveals both the standard and Ti version of the card will be a GA107 GPU, a variant currently unused by Nvidia in any of its other graphics cards. Both Laptop SKUs will feature a small memory capacity and short bus with up to 4GB of GDDR6 memory across a 128-bit interface.

These specifications suggest we’re looking at an entry-level 1080p GPU, but It’s worth bearing in mind that these are RTX models, so are not only equipped with raytracing capabilities but also DLSS. With the assisted AI framerate booster, you might be getting a lot more performance than older non-RTX models and at a (hopefully) affordable price point.
