A Closer Look

While the RTX 3050 cards are mostly the same in terms of their hardware, Palit has clearly gone out of its way to make their card one of the most unique looking of the bunch. While the front shroud is using a lot of plastic, that’s hardly uncommon this far down the range. They’ve given it this strange ribbed look with some horizontal stripes cutting through the fans. I actually think it looks pretty cool, and the shroud encloses those larger fans too, which should drive more air downwards to the card.

There’s a full backplate on the card too, but it has been given that awesome looking honeycomb design to allow the rear fan to blow air right through the card. Of course, this should significantly improve the cooling performance.

You’ll find that same honeycomb design on the rear mount too. Here you can also see the card features three DisplayPort and a single HDMI port; double the display outputs of the new AMD cards.

There’s are large cut-outs on the side of the card too, allowing plenty of airflow around the heatsink.

As well as a small recess for the 8-pin power cable.
