No offense, but this article needs an editor. I've read it twice and the oddly constructed sentences are unclear and some even seem left out entirely. I'm not sure what the point was or what the big revelation was about using this silicon. Or why it "might be a good thing". Honestly nothing about this article made any sense to me at all.

This article reads like only half the words got published.

Like this with no lead in:
"It is a question for Nvidia, which it is not inclined to answer publicly."
What is a question? You never say.

It is a confusing mess that makes me wonder if the author was sober when writing it.

Inno3D sent a high-resolution render of its GeForce RTX 3050 as part of a press release without a cooling system, revealing that the PCB uses the GA106 silicon.
Or they just used the wrong graphic when they did the render?

How much of a "waste" it is to use GA106 for the desktop RTX3050 instead of something smaller depends entirely on how many GA106 dies don't make the grade for an RTX3060(Ti). As Samsung's 8nm gets better, it could also be that Nvidia has raised its binning bars.

I don't think breast implant manufacturers do any binning of their products.
Ok, so that got a near-nose-jet-of-beverage reaction from me.


Nah - some are bigger, some are smaller. Some are firmer, while others are more squishy. Shape can vary quite a bit. Trust me - I have a LOT of hands-on experience!!!
As a fellow professional* in this field, I approve this message.




* or "enthusiast" if you prefer that term...

I'm sure the enthusiast level hardware is great and all, but I really can't settle for anything less than server grade with vendor support for my applications here.
I've personally never experienced anything better than midrange. Hoping to get an upgrade soon. Maybe I will run them in SLI for a fun experience.

100 per cent agree. This was not readable , meaningful English.
