Pros: Quiet, runs any game in 1080p 60 fps effortlessly.
Cons: The static light strip can be a bother to some, but electrical tape is the answer.
Overall Review: Benchmarked on heaven Benchmark comparing to my other build with a 1660 in, which scored a 3300 on high graphics, no anti aliasing. 3050 scored a 3300 on ultra graphics, 4x anti aliasing. Definitely a great card if you're into reaching ultra settings for most games.
Overall Review: My son loves it. It came much faster then expected. I realize it cost more than it should but it was nice to have my son so excited.
Pros: This card is a great 1080p gaming card that has all the nice rtx features like dlss and ray tracing for under $500 (ATM it's a little overpriced right now but I don't see a drop in price coming anytime soon.) Get one while it's still affordable.
Cons: The only con for me is the price is about double I would have to pay at MSRP but it's because of the shortage and economy here in the US.
Overall Review: This card is a good upgrade for anyone with a GTX older generation card that have less then 8gb of ram/ddr 5. The performance on this card is good for the price and I can say that I'm very happy about the RTX 3050 8gb ddr6 card overall! This thing is pushing all my games I like to play over 100 fps at 1080p with some settings tweaking.
Pros: - Great for 1080p at high to ultra settings - Very quiet - 3 displayport + 1 hdmi - great upgrade over my old 1060 I had months ago and UHD 630 this build was using for the time being
Cons: - RGB is non changable and *always* on, which is a problem for me because I sleep in the same room as the computer. A little electrical tape at night is a quick fix but pretty annoying - Deteceted by no RGB software, even asus's own or any communtiy made ones such as open RGB
Overall Review: Great card for anyone looking to play in 1080p and doesn't mind the tiny but mighty, always on RGB strip
Pros: -Very good for 8 gigabytes of GDDR6 which makes it a very fast and very efficient GPU -Was easy to get out of the box and setup like any other graphics card
Cons: -No improvements I could think of
Overall Review: I would very much recommend it for its price, if you can find it in stock, it is in the low end of RTX, but is worth the upgrade if you have a 1650 or regular 1660 non-super
