3DMark Time Spy scores for the newly announced GeForce RTX 2050 and MX550 have leaked. The scores showcase mediocre performance. The numbers aren't unexpected since the GeForce RTX 2050 is a cut-down version of the RTX 3050. The same goes for the MX550 which is a castrated GTX 1650.

3DMark Time Spy scores for the newly announced Nvidia GeForce RTX 2050 and MX550 have leaked on the Chinese site Zhihu. The scores, as expected, don’t paint a favorable picture of the new GPUs. The raytracing-capable GeForce RTX 2050 scored 3,369 points and the MX550 scored 2,510 points. RTX 2050’s 3DMark numbers are significantly lower than the RTX 3050’s score of more than 4,800 with the same GA107 chip. The lower score has to do with the reduced bus width and lower TGP.

Similarly, the MX550’s performance is also considerably lower than the GTX 1650’s score of over 3,000 points. Remember, that both the MX550 and the GTX 1650 share the same TU117 GPU. So, the reduced performance of the MX550 comes down to the 64-bit wide memory bus, in comparison to the 128-bit wide bus of the GTX 1650.

Nvidia released the GeForce RTX 2050, the MX570, and MX550 a couple of days ago in a surprise announcement. The new cards are meant to power low-cost gaming and creator laptops. But even though the cards for budget gaming laptops, the 3DMark Time Spy numbers of Nvidia’s new hardware is disappointing, to say the least.
