ASUS NVIDIA GeForce RTX ROG Strix 3050 OC ED. Ampere Graphics Card

GeForce RTX 3050

TAKE FLIGHT WITH THE LATEST GPU TECHNOLOGYFrom top to bottom, the ROG Strix GeForce RTX™ 3050 OC has been designed to push performance boundaries. A fresh design and more metal surrounds a grouping of Axial-tech fans that leverage a new rotation scheme. Below the blades, a larger, more impressive heatsink is ready for the most demanding thermal loads. The PCB has some new tricks up its sleeves, and even the backplate has received some performance-boosting changes. GeForce RTX™ 30 Series GPUs deliver the ultimate performance for gamers and creators. They’re powered by Ampere—NVIDIA’s 2nd gen RTX architecture—with new RT Cores, Tensor Cores, and streaming multiprocessors for the most realistic ray-traced graphics and cutting-edge AI features. For gamers who want to get the most out of the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, the latest addition to the ROG Strix stable delivers in every way.

Axial-Tech Fan Upgrades

MAX CONTACT COOLING

To get heat up off the die and into the heatsink array to benefit from the new fan design requires special attention. ASUS use a manufacturing process that polishes the surface of the heat spreader to improve smoothness at the microscopic level. The extra flatness allows for better contact with the die for improved thermal transfer.

GeForce RTX 3050

EACH FAN HAS ITS OWN ROLE

By keeping the rotational direction of the auxillary fans the same and having the central fan spin the opposite direction, ASUS ROG STRIX have reduced the turbulence inside the cooling array to boost the card's overall thermal performance. The sum of all of these innovative upgrades results in lower fan speeds and raises the performance threshold of the ROG STRIX 3050 OC achieving a sub-42 degree GPU temperature at which the fans will shut off completely to give you silent performance.

Improved PCB Features

top shelf components

PREMIUM COMPONENTS

As to be expected from a premium brand like ASUS ROG Strix, top-shelf capacitors, chokes and MOSFETs have been used to effortlessly deliver large amounts of power at a Milliseconds notice. The Super Alloy Power II are soldered to the PCB using the amazing Auto-Extreme automated manufacturing process, allowing human error to be removed from the process ensuring each graphics card meets rigorous specifications.

PWM fanconnect headers

FANCONNECT II

The rear of the ROG Strix graphics card sports two PWM FanConnect headers that provide additional DIY flexibility. Chassis fans can be directly attached to the GPU and tuned with a curve that is based on CPU or GPU temperature, providing extra intake or exhaust for demanding 3D tasks.

Updated Shroud Design is Both Functional and Beautiful

ASUS

NOT JUST A PRETTY FACE

In addition to under-the-hood design changes, the ROG Strix features a new face with metal accents that mirror the design aesthetic of ROG and ROG Strix motherboards. Mixing surface textures and materials make a statement when vertically mounted and lit by chassis LEDs. Flipping the card around reveals more design improvements. For enhanced heat dissipation, a wide backplate vent and shortened PCB allow hot air to escape towards chassis exhaust fans instead of being recycled back into the cooler. The I/O bracket is made from stainless steel to protect ports and provide a more secure mount. A conveniently placed Dual BIOS switch allows quick selection between “performance” and “quiet” mode for basic customisation of the card’s default behavior without software. To top it off, an ROG logo with addressable RGB backlighting adds flair.

DirectX Raytracing Allows Incredibly Realistic Graphic Effects

DirectX 12 Ultimate

DIRECTX 12 ULTIMATE OFFERS FEATURES LIKE RAY TRACING AND VARIABLE RATE SHADING

DirectX Raytracing allows games to simulate how light works in real life, providing incredibly realistic and beautiful graphics effects like global illumination, reflections, and shadows.

NVIDIA has partnered closely with Microsoft to enable full DXR support on GeForce GPUs. GeForce RTX GPUs were designed from the start for the extreme demands of ray-tracing workloads. Specialised RT cores, found only on GeForce RTX graphics cards, provide billions of rays per second of performance, and up to 3X the frame rates with DXR games and applications. This makes ray tracing at real-time frame rates possible for the first time.
