Based on the Ampere architecture and designed to handle the graphical demands of Full HD 1080p gaming, the ZOTAC GeForce RTX 3050 GAMING Twin Edge OC Graphics Card brings the power of real-time ray tracing and AI to your PC games. The GPU features 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM and a 128-bit memory interface, offering improved performance and power efficiency over the previous Turing-based generation.
The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs, such as DisplayPort 1.4a and HDMI 2.1. HDMI 2.1 supports up to 48 Gb/s bandwidth and a range of higher resolutions and refresh rates, including 8K @ 60fps, 4K @ 120fps, and even up to 10K. The RTX 3050 is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU’s 2560 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA and other APIs.
For cooling, ZOTAC implemented the IceStorm 2.0 cooling system. Its dual fans feature 11 blades that increase airflow by 10%. The wide aluminum fin-stack array heatsink is paired with copper heat pipes to extract more heat and dissipate the heat more evenly. FREEZE Fan Stop automatically enables efficient and quieter cooling by stopping the fans when the graphics card is idle. Use Active Fan Control to adjust fan rotations independently and apply increased airflow only where and when it’s needed.
The NVIDIA Ampere architecture can deliver twice the FP32 throughput of the previous generation. Its 2nd Gen RT cores provide enhanced ray tracing and shading while its 3rd Gen Tensor Cores can run AI-powered technologies efficiently.
