Gamers have been finding it really difficult to get their hands on graphics cards recently due to the cryptocurrency mining rush. This caused prices to surge considerably thus putting the cards out of reach of those who just wanted to upgrade their gaming machines. The situation has improved in the past few weeks though and gamers will also like that NVIDIA has now launched a new budget option for them, it’s the GeForce GTX 1050 3GB.

Most NVIDIA fans are excited about the next-generation card that the company is due to launch in June but it also has other products up its sleeve. The GeForce GTX 1050 3GB has been quietly announced and it sits between the 2GB GTX 1050 and the 4GB 1050 Ti.

Despite its faster base clock, it has a lower memory bandwidth of 84GB/s. It does have 3GB of memory which means that this graphics card will be more than capable of handling recent games. It won’t appeal much to cryptocurrency miners, though, as they often require 3GB of VRAM at the very least.

It also has 768 CUDA cores with the company claiming that it should deliver a 10 percent performance gain when gaming compared to the 2GB GTX 1050 model. NVIDIA is going to release the new card next month as well. Pricing hasn’t been confirmed as yet but it’s expected to cost over $100.
