ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3050 OC Edition 8GB
The ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3050 OC Edition 8GB Card has been stripped down and backed up for more powerful power and cooling. The all-metal shroud houses two powerful axial technology fans with dual ball bearings.
Underneath, a thick heatsink keeps heat under tight control. Additional features, including TUF components, Auto-Extreme technology, and a rear vent make the TUF a powerhouse fit. For builders looking for a new “Old Faithful,” this card has your back.
Features of the ASUS TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 3050 OC Edition 8GB graphics card
AXIAL-TECH FAN DESIGN
Two tried-and-true Axial-tech fans feature a smaller hub that facilitates longer blades and a reduced lower diaphragm ring to provide better airflow through the cooling stack.
The fans will only start spinning when the GPU temperature reaches 55°C and shut down when temperatures drop below 38°C, which helps reduce noise when the system is idle or under light load.
The heat spreader draws heat into heat pipes that transfer it through an array of fins that fill most of the space of the large 2.8-slot card.
Powerful military-grade capacitors are selected for the card’s power design. It and other components are soldered to the PCB using our Auto-Extreme automated manufacturing process. Precise connections and the elimination of human error ensure each graphics card meets our stringent specifications. To ensure flawless performance when necessary, the cards undergo a grueling 144-hour validation trial.
The all-aluminum shroud creates a tough exterior shell, no-nonsense industrial design, and a gray colorway that blends with any build with ease.
Armored in the back
The underside of the card reveals a host of improvements. Most of the back is covered by a protective metal back plate that prominently features a wide vent. The vent allows hot air to escape into the chassis exhaust fans rather than being recirculated back into the radiator. Stainless steel is used for the I/O bracket to protect the ports and provide a more secure installation. A conveniently located Dual Bios switch allows customization of the card’s default performance profile without software.
An ARGB component can be customized to display a range of aesthetic and functional effects, as well as synchronized with other ASUS components to enable uniform lighting. An 8-pin connector meets the power requirements of the GeForce RTX 3050, and the built-in LED lights illuminate if the power connectors are not connected properly.
