Equipped with the WINDFORCE cooling system, ray tracing and DLSS technology to deliver ultimate 1080p gaming

January 4, 2022 – GIGABYTE TECHNOLOGY Co. Ltd, a leading manufacturer of premium gaming hardware, today announced new GeForce RTX 3050 8G graphics cards, powered by Ampere – NVIDIA’s 2nd gen RTX architecture. The GeForce RTX 3050 GAMING OC 8G, GeForce RTX 3050 EAGLE OC 8G and GeForce RTX 3050 EAGLE 8G graphics cards are engineered to deliver the ultimate 1080p gaming experience with ray tracing and DLSS technology.

The GeForce RTX 3050 brings the performance and efficiency of the NVIDIA Ampere architecture to more gamers than ever before and is the first 50-class desktop GPU to power the latest ray traced games at over 60 fps. The RTX 3050 comes equipped with 2nd generation RT cores for ray tracing and 3rd generation Tensor cores for DLSS and AI. Ray tracing is the new standard in gaming and the RTX 3050 makes it more accessible than ever before.

The new GAMING OC graphics card features the WINDFORCE cooling system and RGB Fusion 2.0, making it the best choice for performance-minded gamers. The EAGLE OC and EAGLE graphics cards are the best choice for those who desire a unique design, while maintaining both efficiency and durability.


The GIGABYTE WINDFORCE 3X cooling system features three unique blade fans with alternate spinning, composite copper heat pipes in direct contact with the GPU, 3D active fans and screen cooling that work together to provide efficient heat dissipation. The middle fan spins in reverse to optimize airflow for heat dissipation, enabling more efficient performance. These cooling technologies keep the graphics card temperatures low at all times, resulting in higher and more stable performance.

WINDFORCE fans utilize graphene nano lubricant, which can extend fan life by 2.1 times, delivering nearly the lifespan of the double ball bearing while providing quiet operation. RGB fusion 2.0 allows users to adjust the color of the lights and various special effects and synchronize with other AORUS devices. The metal back plate not only strengthens the overall structure of the graphics card, but also prevents the PCB from bending or sustaining damage. Featuring ULTRA DURABLE certified components, advanced cooling technology and custom RGB lighting, the GAMING OC model is the best choice for performance gamers.


The GeForce RTX 3050 EAGLE series graphics cards also feature the WINDFORCE cooling technology, composite copper heat pipe in direct contact with the GPU, 3D active fans, screen cooling, and graphene nano lubricant, enabling optimal heat dissipation and gaming performance. The protective back plate not only strengthens the overall structure of the graphics card, but also prevents the PCB from bending or sustaining damage. The design of the EAGLE graphics card is inspired by science-fiction with mechanical materials, a transparent cover, and a bright logo.

GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3050 8G graphics cards use a multi-phase power supply, providing over-temperature protection and load balancing for each MOSFET and allowing the MOSFET to operate at a lower temperature. The ULTRA DURABLE certified chokes and capacitors provide excellent performance and longer system life.
