In the framework of the CES 2022, technology event, AMD announced a new graphics card: Radeon RX 6500 XT, while Nvidia shared the first details of its entry-level product for gamers looking to build a budget PC: RTX 3050.
This graph will also be adapted for some mobile devices such as laptops and will have Ray Tracing capability. The goal is to replace the old GTX 1650 and GTX 1050 graphics.
“A decade ago, we introduced the Class 50 GPU, which offers gamers great performance, on the latest architecture, at an affordable price. It was the first step towards GTX games.
Now, 3 of the 5 best GPUs on Steam are in the GTX 50 class, including the GeForce GTX 1050. When it launched in 2016, the GTX 1050 could power the best games of the day at more than 60 frames per second. But the production value of games keeps increasing, and modern games require a lot more GPU power. The GTX 1050 struggles to keep up. Even a GTX 1050 Ti or the most modern GTX 1650 cannot feed the latest games at 60 FPS ”, details Nvidia in a statement.

This new GTX 3050 graphics will feature 2nd Generation Cores for Ray Tracing, Tensor Cores for DLSS and AI. The company promises that for the first time it will be possible to play different titles that support Ray Tracing with the series 50 to 60 fps.
