NVIDIA Weirdly Confirms RTX 3050 Performs Better With Raytracing On Rather Than GPUs Without Raytracing Support

NVIDIA has released a performance graph claiming the GeForce RTX 3050 is faster than the GTX 1650/1050. The graph is becoming popular as it makes no sense and people are now trying to turn it into a meme. In this graph, NVIDIA compares its RTX 3050 desktop card with GTX 1650 and GTX 1050, and these two cards have been shipped without hardware acceleration of raytracing.


In this graph, the GTX 1650 and the GTX 1050 do not support RTX (raytracing and DLSS) which is why they sit at 0. NVIDIA RTX 3050 desktop GPU is shown offering over 60 FPS with RTX ON. The update on price has also arrived for the RTX 3050. The price will be 279 EUR in the eurozone which makes almost 312 USD. As of now, we do not have any information on the retailer pricing.

This graph was so funny that Jarrod Walton from Tom’s Hardware turned it into a meme…

The NVIDIA RTX 3050 is based on the GA106-150 GPU. It features 2560 CUDA cores, 8GB GDDR6 memory onboard, PCIe Gen4 X16 interface, H264 encoding, and DLSS support. This much anticipated card is sure to become very popular.
