NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop

The GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop is an NVIDIA GPU that was released in May 2021. This GPU is average at gaming with a score of 26% in our PC benchmark.

The GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop has 4 GiB of GDDR6 memory, with a total memory bandwidth of 187 GB/s. The memory bus has a width of 128 bits. More memory is beneficial when gaming at high resolutions as the memory needs to store the frame buffer and all the game textures. If you run out of memory, you will experience poor performance as the GPU needs to swap data in and out of the memory as it is used.

In terms of clock speed, the GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop GPU core runs at a frequency of 1238 MHz and if power and temperature permits, it can boost up to 1500 MHz. A clock speed is the frequency at which the GPU updates. A higher speed means more processing can happen per cycle. This is useful only when comparing cards of the same generation, as other architectures may process more or less per clock.

As for rendering API support, the GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop supports up to DirectX 12.00. In addition, in cross-platform titles, OpenGL 4.60 features are supported. Newer APIs are usually more efficient, allowing for better performance in games and better graphical effects.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop has a TDP of 75W, this is the amount of heat energy produced by the chip as a byproduct. The higher the TDP, the more heat is produced.
