ASUS Launches GeForce RTX 3050 Series Graphics Cards

ASUS announced that it will be releasing NVIDIA’s latest entry-level desktop graphics card, the GeForce RTX 3050, through three sub-brands in its lineup. The sub-brands include ROG Strix, Dual, and Phoenix.

Under the ROG Strix branding, ASUS will be releasing both a standard edition variant of the card, as well as an OC Edition of it. For fans familiar with the lineup, the cards under this lineup will be wrapped in the same chiseled cutouts and futuristic and angular cuts, complete with an aRGB LEG ROG logo cutout on its backplate.

Surprisingly, the ROG Strix version of the RTX 3050 features a triple-fan cooling solution, which is a little rare for an entry-level graphics card.

Moving on, the Dual Series GeForce RTX 3050 cards will also come in a standard and OC Edition, with cards under this range simply sporting dual-fan solutions. Despite its simple design, the fans do make use of the company’s Axial-tech design that are capable of 0db operations, where temperatures and load permit.

Last but not least on the list is the Phoenix GeForce RTX 3050. The card features a single-fan cooling solution and is small, making it ideal for consumers looking to keep their desktop build small yet just powerful enough to game with.

Regardless of the series, all RTX 3050 cards ship out with the same 8GB GDDR6 graphics memory, 8nm Ampere architecture, and support the PCIe 4.0 interface. In addition, the cards will have a combination of up to 2 HDMI 2.1 ports and up to three DisplayPort 1.4a ports, depending on the series.
