Leak reveals more NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 laptop GPU specifications
There have already been several leaks about the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 in recent weeks, along with the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti. Rumour has it that NVIDIA plans to release desktop and laptop versions of the GeForce RTX 3050 series, possibly on GA107 and GA107M GPUs. Now, a GPU-Z screenshot posted on Bilibili has revealed some specifications about a GPU that NVIDIA has codenamed '10DE 25A4'.
According to Videocardz, the 10DE 25A4 is the GA107M GPU that NVIDIA will use in the GeForce RTX 3050 laptop variant. If this is true, then the screenshot confirms that the GeForce RTX 3050 has 2,048 CUDA cores, 20% fewer than the complete GA107 desktop configuration is presumed to offer. The screenshot also states that the 10DE 25A4 has 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM running at 12 Gbps on a 128-bit bus, yielding a total bandwidth of 192 GB/s.
Moreover, the GPU-Z screenshot reports that the card has a 25.4 GPixel/s Pixel Fillrate, a 135.1 GTexel/s Texture Fillrate and a 795 MHz boost clock. The latter implies that the card is a low TGP variant, although NVIDIA will not call it a Max-Q variant.
It is unknown when NVIDIA will announce the RTX 3050 series for laptops. It is worth noting that the card reports that it supports PCIe 3.0 though, which suggests that it will only be available on laptops with AMD Ryzen 5000 or Comet Lake-H processors. Conversely, the GeForce RTX 3050 Ti should support PCIe 4.0, as it has already been seen with an Intel Tiger Lake-H45 processor. Intel is expected to announce Tiger Lake-H45 processors in Q2 2021.
