Palit RTX 3050 Dual OC 8GB Review

The latest Nvidia graphics cards are here, and to celebrate, I’ve got the new Palit RTX 3050 Dual OC 8GB on the test bench! These new cards are designed to be more affordable, offering a new entry-level model for the RTX class cards. However, this is also the first time we’ve seen features like ray-tracing on an xx50 graphics card too. That means you get features like ray tracing, DLSS, Reflex, and all those other lovely Nvidia technologies. Furthermore, all this comes just one week after the launch of the AMD Radeon RX 6500 XT graphics cards. While AMD launched their cards with just 4GB of VRAM, the new Nvidia cards are all equipped with 8GB of VRAM. Of course, that does mean Nvidia’s cards are going to be more expensive, but it’ll be interesting to see what you get (in terms of performance) for your extra investment.

The Palit GeForce RTX 3050 Dual Series features two 90mm big fans, and a backplate with extra ventilation to allow air to pass through the card, which should make light work of cooling the new Nvidia chipset, ensuring you can game for longer at the maximum boost clocks. It should be quiet too, and with a zero RPM fan mode, it’ll be completely silent when you’re not pushing it to the max. Overall, Palit hasn’t gone crazy here, staying relatively close to the reference specifications, but a big cooler, DrMOS, and a little touch of RGB are certainly welcome additions and should give it a more competitive edge overall.
