A Closer Look

Zotac has gone for a very menacing look for their new RTX 3050 graphics card, with all black hardware and just some subtle silver detailing for the logos on the fans. Actually, it reminds me of the new EVGA 3050 too, which uses a similar oversized dual fan configuration and all black hardware. However, the more angular design and slightly open fan edges of the Zotac looks a little cooler to me. Check out the EVGA one here, what do you think?

The new 11-blade fan design does look stunning though, and because the fans cover almost all of the graphics card, they’re going to provide incredibly even cooling performance, as well as bigger airflow even at lower RPM.

Around the back of the card, there’s a full cover backplate, which just keeps things looking smart, but also protects the PCB too. Zotac has again kept things pretty muted, with a mixture of dark grey and black only being spoilt by the sticker they’ve placed there telling us not to sell it. There’s some ventilation too, allowing some airflow to escape through the back of the card.

IT uses a two slot design, and doesn’t really sit too wide either, despite those massive fans, so case compatibility should be pretty excellent. Also, unlike the new AMD GPUs which features two display outputs, you get four here, with an HDMI and three DisplayPorts for you to play around with.

Finally, you’ll find the card draws additional power from a single 8-pin header, which is in line with all of the other RTX 3050 we’ve seen so far.
