Based on the Ampere architecture and designed to handle the graphical demands of Full HD 1080p gaming, the ASUS GeForce RTX 3050 Dual OC Graphics Card brings the power of real-time ray tracing and AI to your PC games. The GPU features 8GB of GDDR6 VRAM and a 128-bit memory interface, offering improved performance and power efficiency over the previous Turing-based generation.

The front panel of the card features a variety of outputs, such as DisplayPort 1.4a and HDMI 2.1. HDMI 2.1 supports up to 48 Gb/s bandwidth and a range of higher resolutions and refresh rates, including 8K @ 60fps, 4K @ 120fps, and even up to 10K. The RTX 3050 is not just about high-resolution gaming. Computationally intensive programs can utilize the GPU's 2560 cores to accelerate tasks using CUDA and other APIs.

For cooling, ASUS implemented dual Axial-tech fans, providing improved airflow and dispersion. There is also Aura Sync RGB lighting. Using Aura Sync software, you can sync the RGB lights with other ASUS products for a customized gaming setup. With Aura Sync, you can sync to music, temperature-based color changing, or select from a variety of patterns and static options.

NVIDIA Ampere Architecture
The NVIDIA Ampere architecture can deliver twice the FP32 throughput of the previous generation. Its 2nd Gen RT cores provide enhanced ray tracing and shading while its 3rd Gen Tensor Cores can run AI-powered technologies efficiently.
Real-Time Ray Tracing
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX platform enables real-time ray tracing of objects and environments with physically accurate shadows, reflections, refractions, and global illumination.
DLSS
NVIDIA DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) is AI rendering that boosts frame rates while still providing optimal image quality using the dedicated AI processing Tensor Cores on the GeForce RTX platform. This gives you the performance you need to maximize ray tracing settings and resolutions for an immersive visual experience.
HDMI 2.1
The HDMI 2.1 interface provides increased bandwidth, allowing a single cable to output to 8K HDR TVs for ultra-high-resolution gaming.

Will this work in my HP Z440 Workstation? I currently have a Quatro K4200 and Nvidia no longer supports the board and I am now having issues with the latest Photoshop and need to do something.
Asked by: Michael
Yes, the ASUS GeForce RTX 3050 Dual OC will be able to fit into the HP Z440's PCIe 3.0 x16 lane. However, since the HP Z440 uses PCIe 3.0 you will only be able to achieve PCIe 3.0 speeds with this card.
