During the GPU shortage, some gamers have switched to laptops, which can now also contain very powerful graphics cards. However, Nvidia has caused a lot of confusion here with model variants with different TDPs. This continues with the new Geforce RTX 2050, because contrary to what its name might suggest, the card is not based on Turing, but on amplifiers. So read more about the first benchmarks of the new GPU below.
While Nvidia’s graphics card nomenclature makes sense primarily on the desktop, the same cannot be said for mobile. In the desktop area, in addition to the Turing-based GTX 16xx models, it can be assumed that an Ampere graphics card will be marketed as RTX 30×0 (Ti). The same applied to the predecessor models of Turing’s architecture. Now there are the first benchmarks of a new laptop GPU that contradicts this nomenclature. Contrary to what the name suggests, the RTX 2050 is not based on Turing, but on the latest amp technology.

In a first comparison with a mobile GTX 1650, the Chinese manufacturer Mechrevo found that the new RTX 2050 achieves approximately 23% more points in the 3D Mark Firestrike and thus reaches a score of 9679 points. This is roughly comparable to a Geforce GTX 1650 desktop model, which scores around 9400 points. Compared to a Geforce MX 450, the performance of the new RTX 2050 is 134% higher and should be roughly comparable to the Geforce MX 570, which has the same GPU configuration.

The RTX 2050 is said to be equipped with a GA107 GPU and packs 2,048 CUDA cores. However, compared to the MX 570, the memory is doubled from 2 to 4 GiB and it is also faster at 14 GBPS compared to 12 GBPS. The GPU boost clock is said to max out at 1477 MHz and the card is said to be available in various configurations from 30 to 45 watts. The launch is expected for this spring, without a specific date being known so far.
