GALAX and KFA2 have unveiled a new RTX 3050 6GB graphics card with two distinct designs. The first variant follows the standard two slots and two fans model found in typical gaming cards. In contrast, the RTX 3050 LP White is a custom graphics card specifically crafted for low-profile form factors.
Rather than merely using white paint on the cooler shroud, this particular model stands out as one of the initial low-profile gaming cards showcasing a white PCB. The GA107 GPU benefits from effective cooling provided by dual 40 mm fans integrated into a dual-slot heatsink.
GALAX affirms that the card is capable of achieving a degree of overclocking, yet the GPU remains restricted to 70 watts, adhering to NVIDIA reference specifications. With no external power connectors, the card cannot draw additional power, as the entire power supply is channeled through the PCIe connector.
The RTX 3050 LP White can reach a boost clock of up to 1485 MHz, indicating a 15 MHz boost. However, this clock is implemented using GALAX software through 1-Click functionality. It’s worth noting that this isn’t a conventional factory overclock, but rather a capability confirmed by GALAX.
The card adopts an unconventional display connector arrangement, incorporating two HDMI 2.1 ports and DisplayPort 1.4a. Notably, there’s no indication of a half-slot I/O bracket for this model.
As of now, no retailer has listed this model, making its pricing uncertain. The majority of RTX 3050 6GB designs typically range between $169 (MSRP) and $179, with the latter pertaining to overclocked models.
