NVIDIA has almost finished the announcement of its new generation of graphics cards, it has only one product pending, the GeForce RTX 4050a very desirable model that often appeared as a simple modification of the laptop version running on more work, and which would therefore provide higher performance.
In terms of raw power, GeForce RTX 4050 will be half of GeForce RTX 3050 and GeForce RTX 3060. Depending on each specific game, and its level of optimization, it will be closer to one or the other, but there is no truth. , the most important thing is what this picture card can do in terms of performance, and also the price it will give thanks to DLSS 3.
I had the opportunity to test the GeForce RTX 4050 Mobile on the MSI Thin GF63 laptop, and using DLSS 2 and DLSS 3 together (Super Resolution in terms of quality and design) it can stop, for example, 30 FPS in Cyberpunk 2077 with the best in 1080p at 79 FPS. This means that the efficiency is increased by more than two times.
GeForce RTX 4050 will be able to perform well in 1080p, and thanks to DLSS 3 it will allow us to play even if the graphics work is done in titles as demanding as Cyberpunk 2077 and Dying Light 2. It will also become the next character card. from NVIDIA which will be independent DLSS 3, since will provide this technology to reach all budgets.
We still don’t know its selling price, but given that the GeForce RTX 4060 hits the market with a price of 335 euros, and take into account that we can buy it for 319.95 euros, the most likely GeForce RTX. 4050 is between 229 and 249 euros. At that price, said graphics card will be an interesting and economic one, and its low consumption will make it the best choice for updating old devices with products use less electricity.
The GeForce RTX 4060 has a TGP of 115 watts and has 3,072 shaders. The GeForce RTX 4050 will have 2,560 shaders, so it will have the most Your TGP is between 75 and 90 watts. If NVIDIA manages to adjust the TGP to 75 watts, this card will not need additional power, and can be integrated into a really small model.
Features, performance, release date and price of GeForce RTX 4050
- AD107 graphics core of 5 nm from TSMC.
- 2.560 He.
- GPU at 2,505 MHz-2,640 MHz, normal and turbo mode.
- 80 units of textured.
- 80 tensioner cores.
- 32 rasterized units.
- 20 core RT.
- Bus of 96 bits.
- 6 GB of GDDR6 graphics memory at 18 GHz (216 GB / s bandwidth).
- 12 MB of hidden L2.
- 13.51 TFLOPs of power in FP32.
- TGP: between 75 and 90 watts. You may not need a 6-pin power connector.
Its performance will be half of GeForce RTX 3050 and GeForce RTX 3060, although it should be close to the latter in most cases, and thanks to DLSS 3 it will be better than it and it will be closer to solutions that are stronger and more expensive.
NVIDIA is expected to announce the GeForce RTX 4050 later this year, probably in the fourth quarter, although it can still be delayed to the first quarter of 2024. Its price will be around. between 229 and 249 euros.
