NVIDIA RTX 3050 Pricing

$249 USD. When compared to its predecessor, NVIDIA RTX 2060, it is estimated that it will come with a minimum of 20% faster performance in graphics and higher resolution rendering capabilities. If history repeats itself, we can expect a price hike from NVIDIA in 2 years as they release their next generation of GPUs.

NVIDIA RTX 3050 – A Possible Upgrade?

NVIDIA has released its first set of cards to use their next-generation ray tracing technology: NVIDIA RTX. While these new cards will perform very well on current games, they won’t outperform their predecessors in every single title. Early reviews state that NVIDIA’s new GPUs are good for about 15%-20% more performance than last year’s generation—this is a substantial upgrade over previous years, but some gamers may find themselves paying hundreds of dollars for only a minor increase in gaming performance.
