This month, ASUS listed an RTX 3050 Ti laptop GPU option for its TUF Dash F15 gaming laptop. The leak seemingly confirmed that the dedicated GPU would feature 4 GB of GDDR6 VRAM, but it did not provide any other details, such as clock speeds, TGPs or how many cores the card would have. Fortunately, a new Geekbench has filled in some of the gaps about the RTX 3050 series, though.
As the screenshot below shows, someone has benchmarked a Samsung laptop with a GeForce RTX 3050 Laptop GPU. According to the listing, the RTX 3050 has 4 GB of VRAM, probably GDDR6, and 16 Compute Units (CUs). Videocardz asserts that each CU contains 128 CUDA cores, yielding 2,048 CUDA cores in total. The listing also describes that the RTX 3050 has a 1.06 GHz boost clock speed.
However, the RTX 3050's OpenCL score is nothing to write home about and puts it on par with the GTX 1660 Ti Max-Q and the Radeon RX 5600M. The RTX 3050 appears to offer much better performance than NVIDIA's GTX 1650 series though, which the RTX 3050 series will probably replace.
Incidentally, the PCI ID Repository shows that the RTX 3050 has a GA107M GPU, as does the RTX 3050 Ti. Based on this Geekbench listing and ASUS' leak, we should expect to see RTX 3050 series laptop GPUs paired with Intel Tiger Lake-H processors later this year.
