    Question Debating between a RTX 3050 (4GB GDDR6) and a RTX 3060 (6GB GDDR6) for a notebook for the next 5 years.

    Obviously the 3060 is better, and the 3050 is cheaper. I'd like to purchase this notebook and have it last for some 5 years. I don't mind having to play the games on medium or even medium-low if need be, but i'd like to at least have 30 fps by the end of these 5 years. Do you think a 3050 can...

    Question Is such heating of the video card safe?

    Hello. Is this normal? The 3050 ventus 2x 8g video card is heated in passive mode up to 131°F / 55°C? Fans turn on only after 140°F / 60°C Is such a temperature safe for silicone thermal padding for a video card?

    Question 6600XT performing worse then my RTX 3050 ?

    Although the title is slightly clickbait, it's not entirely untrue. When building my PC, I made it so that I could get as much frames as I can in Valorant. With my RTX 3050, I could average around 350-400 in gun fights meanwhile 700fps max when I stay still and look at wall in practice range...

    [SOLVED] GTX 1650 mobile (max-p) vs. RTX3050 mobile 35W?

    Is the RTX 3050 (non Ti) mobile 35W TGP an upgrade (?) to the GTX 1650 mobile 50W TGP (max-p), that is worth to forego a 120Hz IPS display and spending 5% more? The laptops differ in GPU and display only. Thanks for your help.
