While the GeForce RTX 3050 (test) usually comes with a factory TDP rating of 130W and connected via 1 x 8-pin, MSI is now offering a new dedicated model with just 115W, which is connected via 1 x 6-pin supplied with the necessary power. The basis for this is the “younger” graphics processor.

MSI lowers the TDP from 130W to 115W

MSI has quietly released the GeForce RTX 3050 Ventus 2X 8G OC in a new revision, which offers the same specifications as the first version with 2560 CUDA units, 8GB of memory and 128-bit GDDR6 graphics memory, but not the GA106 GPU, but the GA107, which is optimized for mobile and dedicated use. For GeForce RTX 3050 mobile GPU (testing) and GeForce RTX 3050 Ti laptop GPU.

1 x 6-pin is sufficient for the power supply

While the performance data is identical with a boost clock of 1807MHz and 14Gbps graphics memory, MSI has managed to reduce power consumption from 130W to a 115W TDP, the same as the official one. Specify Betray.

Ventus X2 OC → Ventus X2 OCV1
  • GA106 → GA107
  • 2560 shading = 2560 shading
  • 8 GB of GDDR6 = 8 GB of GDDR6
  • 3 x DisplayPort 1.4 → 2 x DisplayPort 1.4
  • 1 x 8-pin PCIe 4.0 → 1 x 6-pin PCIe 4.0
  • 130 W TDP → 115 W TDP

Nothing changes the performance of the FP16 for the graphics card with its 36.4 TFLOPS, but the “smaller” graphics processor, which is actually designed for laptops, clearly gives the manufacturer more leeway in terms of power consumption, which is also reflected in a mere 6- Pin-connector is reversed.

Other smaller changes can be seen in the I/O area of ​​the graphics card, because while the Ventus X2 OC still has 3 x DisplayPort 1.4 and 1 x HDMI 2.1, the Ventus X2 OCV1 comes with 2 x DisplayPort 1.4 and 2 x HDMI 2.1. In addition, the GA107 allows the manufacturer to use slightly less materials, reducing the weight of the graphics card from 1070 grams to 910 grams.
