GeForce RTX 3050 6GB Shows Up On Russian Retailer’s Website

A Cheaper RTX 3050 From Nvidia!

Three unique GeForce RTX 3050 6GB variants from Nvidia partner Palit are available for purchase through a Russian retailer, Citilink.

These models include the GeForce RTX StormX and StormX OC, in addition to the KalmX variant. The listings have been spotted after a recent rumor claimed Nvidia would launch this graphics card in February.

While the GeForce RTX 3050 6GB and the GeForce RTX 3050 8GB seem to share the same number of CUDA cores at 2,560, there is no information on what GPU the new 6GB variant will be using.

However, the current GeForce RTX 3050 8GB features the GA107 GPU instead of the GA106 used in the earlier models.

Nvidia might go with the lower-end GA107 die due to the more efficient 115W TBP. This would help reduce costs further and keep power consumption under control, further improving this graphics card’s position as a budget option.

The 6GB of GDDR6 memory on the GeForce RTX 3050 is clocked at 14 Gbps. While the GeForce RTX 3050 8GB features the same memory chips, there is a big difference between the two cards. It seems the 6GB of GDDR6 memory on the GeForce RTX 3050 will be limited to a 96-bit bus instead of the 128-bit bus found in the GeForce RTX 3050 8GB.

Due to a limited memory bus of 96-bit, the GeForce RTX 3050 6GB will be restricted to a bandwidth of just 168GB/s compared to 224GB/s on the GeForce RTX 3050 8GB. However, being a card targeted at 1080p gaming and hopefully coming with a lower price tag, the 25% reduction in bandwidth might be justified.

The specifications provided by the Russian retailer contain contradictory and missing information that needs to be confirmed. While a cheaper variant of the GeForce RTX 3050 8GB sounds like a good entry-level option, it all depends on the final price of the GPU, considering it will compete against a market filled with $200 options.
