At CES 2022, hardware ninjas PNY announced that they’ll be releasing a brand new GPU for the entry level market. Part of their XLR8 Gaming line, they’ll be shipping an NVIDIA RTX 3050 with both single and dual fan configurations with a full 8GB of GDDR6 memory. The single-fan REVEL 3050 is an ultra-compact card that should fit even the smallest of micro-ATX builds, with its larger brother being an RGB-powered dual fan model. PNY will also be shipping a non-RGB model for those who aren’t looking for flash in their case. Let’s look at the spec sheet:
8GB GDDR6 (192-bit)
Single and Dual Fan Configurations
PCI Express 4.0
DisplayPort 1.4a and HDMI 2.1
EPIC-X RGB on REVEL editions
These new cards will be available on January 27th of 2022 via BestBuy, Amazon, PNY.com and other various online retailers. Look for our coverage on these cards as we get closer to launch!
