An Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 has been spotted on an Asus TUF Dash F15 gaming PC listed on Amazon. This graphics card has not yet been formalized by its manufacturer, but it will not be long …
Not long ago, benchmarks performed on the 3DMark Time Spy Graphics application revealed the performance of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 and 3050 Ti graphics cards, confirming their imminent arrival on laptops. This time the RTX 3050 appeared in the specifications of an Asus TUF Gaming Dash F15, presented on the Italian site of Amazon.
Apart from the graphics card, the PC seems almost identical to the TUF Dash F15 that we have just tested : 144 Hz screen, Intel Core i5-11300H processor, 512 GB SSD and 8 GB of RAM (compared to 16 GB for our model with an RTX 3060 card). This new TUF Dash F15 should therefore be an even more affordable solution. Knowing that the RTX 3060 version currently costs nearly € 1,150, we can imagine that the model equipped with an RTX 3050 will be around € 1,000, or even a little less.
According to the latest rumors, the RTX 3050 graphics card would ship 2,048 computing units, 4 GB of VRAM with a TGP between 35 and 80 W. It would undoubtedly replace the aging GTX 1650 and 1660 Ti and offer something to take advantage of its Full HD games at low cost. In this case, it will probably be difficult to use the 144Hz screen on this PC, unless you play a few older titles or seriously lower the quality of the graphics.
The TUF Dash F15 is upgradeable. If the 8 GB of RAM or the 512 GB of storage is not enough, nothing prevents you from changing the components to boost the performance of the PC.
