Galax has introduced a low-profile version of the GeForce RTX 3050 6GB LP video card. An additional notable feature of the new product is that the card is completely white, including its printed circuit board.
The Galax GeForce RTX 3050 6GB LP White may be the first low-profile graphics card built on a white PCB. The new product is equipped with a compact cooling system, which includes two fans with a diameter of 40 mm. Despite the low profile, the card will still take up two entire expansion slots in the PC case.
The company reports that the new product has a slight overclocking of the GPU. However, its power consumption is within the reference value of 70 W. However, the card does not have connectors for additional power. All power is supplied through the PCIe x16 slot on the motherboard.
For the Galax GeForce RTX 3050 6GB LP White, the GPU boost frequency is stated to be up to 1485 MHz (15 MHz higher than the reference value). However, the overclocking profile must be activated through the proprietary Galax software. The new product also received a non-standard set of external video connectors. It consists of two HDMI 2.1 and two DisplayPort 1.4a.
The card has not yet appeared on sale. Its cost is unknown. Most GeForce RTX 3050 6GB variants from other manufacturers are available for a suggested price of $169 or slightly more at $179. In the latter case, we are most often talking about models with factory overclocking.
