This has reduced the power consumption of the device.
Nvidia partners have started releasing an updated version of the budget GeForce RTX 3050 video card. A V1 revision map was spotted on the MSI website.
The updated GeForce RTX 3050 has a new chip: the card is now based on the GA107 chip, not the GA106. The main characteristics remained the same: 2560 CUDA-core, 8 gigabytes of GDDR6 memory, 128-bit bus.
As VideoCards notes, the migration to the new chip has reduced the device’s power consumption. The new version of the GeForce RTX 3050 consumes a maximum of 115 watts, while the regular version consumed 130 watts.
Besides, the card has a new power socket now. Instead of the 8-pin connector, the new version of the GeForce RTX 3050 is 6-pin enough.
Apparently, an updated version of the GeForce RTX 3050 is already on sale.
