With the RTX 3050 set to be released tomorrow (January 27), much discussion has centered on the availability of RTX 3050 stock in the aftermath of the rest of the series. The RTX 3060, Nvidia’s last entry-level Ampere video card, was released just shy of a year ago exclusively through the company’s partners. It had a very short window of availability, and we’re ready to guess that the next inexpensive video card will have the same.
It’s been reported online that RTX 3050 stock will be on sale tomorrow at 6 a.m. ET (9 a.m. PT). This would be consistent with a number of other GPU releases we’ve seen. In general, we recommend going online as soon as possible in order to have the best chance of purchasing an RTX 3050 at MSRP before it’s too late.
Previously only accessible in portable form in RTX 3050 laptops, the new series of discrete video cards will contain 8GB of GDDR6 memory and the most advanced A.I. technology. We’ll bring you the most recent RTX 3050 stock and availability information as soon as we can.
The RTX 3050’s price
The RTX 3050 has a starting MSRP of $249/£239; however, because there will be no Founders Edition model, real retail prices will be primarily determined by Nvidia’s partners. While we’re expecting some partner cards to sell at this rate, we also wouldn’t be surprised to see higher-end option options come in at close to double on launch day, too. If you’re looking for one of the finest graphics cards for gaming on a tight budget, the RTX 3050 should fit the bill nicely.
