The entry-level RTX 3050 Ti GPUs might first launch on laptops. According to the latest listings from Asus and Acer, the RTX 3050 Ti models only come with 4 GB of GDDR6 memory, so they are most likely limited to a 128-bit memory bus, and the minimum TGP is set to 60 W.

With the launch of the Ampere RTX 3000 family, the x050 naming scheme is making a return. Nvidia decided to skip the RTX 2050 moniker and instead upgraded the GTX 1050 models with 1650 and 1660 variants, even though these were still Turing chips, but missing ray tracing support. We have been hearing rumors about entry-level RTX 3050 desktop cards for some time now, and it looks like these might actually launch on laptops first. Asus has recently updated the spec info page for its TUF Dash F15 laptops, and the last GPU option now reads RTX 3050 Ti instead of GN20-P0.

The Asus listing also mentions that the RTX 3050 Ti cards come with 4 GB GDDR6 VRAM, most likely a limitation imposed by a 128-bit memory bus. This is quite an abysmal VRAM amount for a Ti GPU, considering that it supposedly replaces the GTX 1660 Ti, which already provides 6 GB. We might also have the initial TGP targets, if Acer’s Nitro 5 AN517-41 specs are any indication. According to the Acer listing, the RTX 3050 Ti (GN20-P0) starts with 60 W TGPs, but there is another variant (GN20-P1) that also comes with 60 W TGPs.

From what we have seen thus far with the RTX 3000 series, Nvidia likes to provide several variants with different TGPs for each mobile SKU, so we could get more RTX 3050 Ti variants with TGP’s up to 100 W. Unfortunately, the increased TGPs with higher clocks will not really have a big performance impact if the cards are indeed limited to 4 GB VRAM.
