Recently, 4GB GeForce RTX3050 graphics card, 6GB RTX 3050 Ti, and Nvidia’s RTX 3060 12GB graphics card were discovered on the Lenovo list. This list is about one of Lenovo’s computers in the Legion series, and it includes all three cards not yet announced by Nvidia.

The RTX 3050 is expected to be the most affordable model bringing RTX on low-end gaming builds. This card comes with a GA107-300 chip, ~2304 CUDA cores, 18 RT cores, 72 Tensor cores, and 4 GB of GDDR6 of VRAM memory with a 128-bit memory bus. Also, RTX 3050 is able to maintain a lower TBP of just 90W, which means it can be easily used on most budget PSUs.

The RTX 3050 Ti comes with a GA106-300 chip, ~3584 CUDA cores, 28 RT cores, 112 Tensor cores, and 6 GB of GDDR6 of VRAM at 192-bit memory bus. There is no info about its TBP.

The 3060 (GA106-400) has 12GB of VRAM compared to 8GB of the 3060 Ti, with ~3840 CUDA cores, 30 RT cores, ~120 Tensor cores, 192-bit memory bus, and 16Gbps memory speed.
