Lenovo also confirmed the specifications for the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and RTX 3050 GPUs for entry-level gaming laptops. Several laptops equipped with unreleased Ampere gaming chips have recently appeared in retail stores, but our sources say we could have a tough launch within the next month.
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti & RTX 3050 Laptop Gaming GPUs Feature Up To 95W TGPs & 4 GB GDDR6 Memory
Lenovo listed the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti a while ago, but it has now listed both NVIDIA RTX 3050 Ti and RTX 3050 on the spec page for its Legion 5 Pro laptop. The laptop will ship with an AMD Ryzen 7 5800H processor and GPU up to GeForce RTX 3070.
NVIDIA RTX 3050 Ti Laptop Gaming GPU Specs:
Starting with the specifications, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Laptop GPU will feature 2560 cores packed within 20 SM units. The GPU has a listed boost clock of 1485 MHz with an achieved speed of 1695 MHz. The GPU will feature 4 GB GDDR6 VRAM running across a 128-bit bus interface and TGP on the chip is expected to peak at 95W. The GPU features Dynamic Boost Technology so the actual TGP should be around 80W with the boosting algorithm pushing 15 Watts into the chip when there is a need for it.
NVIDIA RTX 3050 Laptop Gaming GPU Specs:
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050, on the other hand, will feature 2048 CUDA cores packed with 16 SM units. The GPU has a listed boost clock of 1500 MHz with an achieved speed of 1740 MHz. The GPU will feature 4 GB GDDR6 VRAM running across a 128-bit bus interface. The TGP will be the same as the RTX 3050 Ti which would peak at 95W (80W standard / 60W configurable down).
Based on leaked performance numbers, the RTX 3050 Ti is roughly 9% faster than the RTX 3050 in synthetic benchmarks. Compared to the GTX 1650 Ti in 3DMark Timespy, the RTX 3050 Ti is 46% faster and the RTX 3050 is 37% faster. For someone looking to buy a budget gaming laptop, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 and 3050 Ti will be great entry-level options that offer performance boosts and added features over the older GTX 1650 Ti.
