Another Nvidia GeForce RTX 30-series launch has come and gone.GIGABAYTE GeForce RTX 3050 GAMING is the tenth model in the growing desktop range, and it provides good performance for gamers upgrading from integrated graphics or updating older cards that aren’t up to date.
Gigabyte has the advantage of being a dual-manufacturer, supplier, but given Team Green’s dominance in the graphics market, it’s reasonable that more emphasis is spent on the GeForce side of the business.
Gigabyte puts the Gaming OC foot forward by equipping the newest Ampere GPU with well-known cooling technology.
GIGABAYTE GeForce RTX 3050 GAMING
When looking at the GeForce RTX 3050 GAMINGmodel, enthusiasts who are familiar with the mainstream Gigabyte graphics card portfolio will feel well at home. The Gaming OC sub-brand provides cooling, and design highlights include a triple-fan cooler, two-tone colour scheme, and stringent dual-slot form factor.
The cooler assembly appears to be identical to that of the RTX 3060 model. This translates to a length of 282mm, a height of 117mm, and a thickness of 41mm.
The central fan on the Gaming OC spins clockwise, while the outer fans spin in the opposite direction at the same rpm. This is done to lessen turbulence that would otherwise occur at the margins of the centre fan if all three were spinning in the same direction.

There’s no reason for the card to be 11in long, but we don’t mind because most mid-sized chassis have enough room for it.
Partners have used small-sized PCBs and through-the-board cooling as inspiration, which was first championed by Nvidia’s premium Founders Edition cards. This is known as Screen Cooling by Gigabyte, and it can be seen on the left-hand side, where the fan blows air through the heatsink and out the back. Because the PCB finishes to the right, it is able to do so.
When the card is in a machine, the writing may appear strange in this position, but it makes sense. Gaming OC, being a mid-tier RTX solution, foregoes cost-increasing niceties like multiple BIOSes and all-around RGB lighting.
