RTX 4050 GPU Specs, Performance, Price & More- Everything We Know So Far

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 Graphics Card Specs, Performance, Price and Availability - Everything We Know So Far

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 will be the cutting edge standard gaming design card, offering the most recent illustrations engineering given Ada Lovelace GPUs. The design card will supplant the RTX 3050, an exceptionally famous gaming illustration card in the sub-$300 US portion which is focused on the mass buyer fragment.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 Graphics Card - Purely Designed For Enthusiast Gamers

While there's no denying the energy around the better quality GeForce RTX 4090, GeForce RTX 4080 and GeForce RTX 4070 series or even the more standard RTX 4060 illustrations cards that offer the most elite gaming execution, the RTX 4050 series illustrations cards will be planned around the $250 US section which is a standard valued range focused on the spending plan gamer who needs similar elements as better quality cards less the exhibition, at a much lower price tag.

It's basic, the RTX 4090 series will be focused on clients who need the most elite without agonizing over how much cash they are spending while the RTX 4080 series is focused on clients who need the most ideal exhibition at the best cost. The RTX 4070 will be the perfect balance for very good quality gaming, while the RTX 4060 is intended for the gaming masses at a value that will be difficult to disregard given its exhibition, and the RTX 4050 is focused on the individuals who need to enter the new series at a spending plan level evaluating without losing the cutting edge include set.

Very much like the age before it, the RTX 3050 figured out how to offer execution near the RTX 2060 yet was wounded by its 128-bit memory interface. The RTX 3050 improved execution, elements, and worth (at MSRP) versus its opposition, the RX 6500 XT yet it required a long time to arrive at a value near the MSRP. Generally, the RTX 3050 was a 1080p-centred and eSports-pointed illustrations card and the equivalent ought normal of the RTX 4050.

The '50-class' portion is the offered cow for NVIDIA and it's most certainly something that NVIDIA needs to have estimated solidly in its given execution.

We ought to expect comparable things with the cutting-edge gaming arrangement too yet a significant component to consider is that GPUs are turning out to be more eager for power and more expensive. A pattern could go on into the future as we receive better items yet consequently, there's consistently an expense to pay for end buyers. So beginning with what we know up until this point, first, we ought to investigate the spic and span Ada Lovelace or AD10* class GPUs that will drive the cutting-edge GeForce RTX 40 series cards.

NVIDIA's AD107 'Ada Lovelace' GPU - Entry-Tier Focused Next-Gen Chip

Beginning with the GPU design, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 series illustration cards might use both AD106 and AD107 GPUs. We don't figure there would be a 'Ti' set up in the setup as we didn't get that during the Ampere family however it could change. The explanation I noticed for both AD106 and AD107 GPU for a similar card is that the RTX 3050 did likewise. The card was delivered on GA106 GPUs before GA107 opened up in the market after its portable presentation.

The RTX 3050 was constantly intended to use the GA107 GPU yet NVIDIA took full advantage of the GA106 passes on that couldn't arrive at the yields expected for the better quality cards. The GPU is said to quantify around 150mm2 and will use the TSMC 4N interaction hub which is an advanced variant of TSMC's 5nm (N5) hub intended for the green group.

The NVIDIA Ada Lovelace AD107 GPU is supposed to include up to 3 GPC (Graphics Processing Clusters). This is a similar GPC considering the GA106 GPU. Each GPC will comprise 4 TPCs and 8 SMs which is a similar design to the current chip. Every SM (Streaming Multiprocessor) will house four sub-centres which is likewise equivalent to the GA106 GPU. What's changed is the FP32 and the INT32 centre arrangement. Each sub-centre will incorporate 128 FP32 units however joined FP32+INT32 units will go up to 192. This is because the FP32 units don't have a similar sub-centre as the IN32 units. The 128 FP32 centres are isolated from the 64 INT32 centres.

So altogether, each sub-centre will comprise 32 FP32 in addition to 16 INT32 units for a sum of 48 units. Every SM will have a sum of 128 FP32 units in addition to 64 INT32 units for a sum of 192 units. Furthermore, since there is a sum of 24 SM units (8 for every GPC), we are taking a gander at 3,072 FP32 Units and 1,536 INT32 units for a sum of 4,608 centres.

Moving over to the cache, this is another segment where NVIDIA has given a big boost over the existing Ampere GPUs. The Ada Lovelace GPUs will pack 192 KB of L1 cache per SM, an increase of 50% over Ampere. The L2 cache will be increased to 16 MB as mentioned in the leaks. This is an 8x increase over the Ampere GA106 GPU that hosts just 2 MB of L2 cache. The cache will be shared across the GPU.

Finally, we have the ROPs which will stick to 16 per GPC. You are looking at up to 48 ROPs, the same as the current GA106 GPUs. There are also going to be the latest 4th Generation Tensor and 3rd Generation RT (Raytracing) cores infused on the Ada Lovelace GPUs which will help boost DLSS & Raytracing performance to the next level. Overall, the Ada Lovelace AD107 GPU will offer:

  • Same Number of GPCs as GA106 GPU
  • +20% Cores vs GA107 GPU
  • 50% More L1 Cache (Versus Ampere GA107)
  • 8x L2 Cache (Versus Ampere GA107)
  • 50% More ROPs (Versus Ampere GA107)
  • 4th Gen Tensor & 3rd Gen RT Cores

Do note that clock speeds, which are said to be between the 2-3 GHz range, aren't taken into the equation so they will also play a major role in improving the per-core performance versus Ampere.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 Graphics Cards Specifications

NVIDIA may or may not offer two variants of the GeForce RTX 4050 graphics cards. That depends on whether they have enough chips or defective dies at hand to turn into discrete graphics cards but we know that there is indeed going to be an RTX 4050 graphics card. The laptop side may see more configurations but for RTX 4050 on desktops, we can expect the following specs.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 'Expected' Specifications

Based on NVIDIA's decision to do a mix of AD106/AD107 or go AD107 across its RTX 4050 series lineup we can see up to a total of 3072 cores. The AD107 GPU will come packed with 16 MB of L2 cache and up to 48 ROPs.

The clock speeds are not confirmed yet but considering that the TSMC 4N process is being used, we are expecting clocks between the 2.0-3.0 GHz range. The higher than usual clock speed bump comes from the fact that NVIDIA is making a two-node jump considering the Ampere GPUs with Samsung 8nm node was in reality a 10nm process node with some optimizations. NVIDIA is skipping 7nm and going straight for a 5nm node and not even the vanilla variant but an optimized version of it. With Pascal on the TSMC 16nm node, NVIDIA delivered a huge frequency leap and we can expect a similar jump this time around too.

As for memory specs, the GeForce RTX 4050 is expected to rock 8 GB GDDR6X capacities that might come at faster 20+ Gbps speeds across a 128-bit bus interface for over 320 GB/s of bandwidth. The thing is that you can either go 8 GB for such a graphics card in the given 128-bit bus or cut down to 96-bit for either 6 GB or 12 GB configurations.

The GeForce RTX 4050 graphics card is also said to rock a TGP of around 150W which is an increase of 30% over the RTX 3050 on the GA107 GPU. This is a massive TGP increase and the performance needs to be really good for NVIDIA to keep its efficiency numbers up.

As for its feature set, the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4050 graphics cards will rock all the modern NV feature sets such as the latest 4th Gen Tensor Cores, 3rd gen RT cores, and the latest NVENC Encoder, and NVCDEC Decoder, and support for the latest APIs. They will pack all the modern RTX features such as DLSS, Reflex, Broadcast, Resizable-BAR, Freestyle, Ansel, Highlights, Shadowplay, and G-SYNC support too.
