In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 3080 MSI Gaming X Trio 10GB are massively better than the Nvidia GeForce GTX 2050.

The RTX 3080 has a 86 MHz higher core clock speed and 172 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce GTX 2050. This results in the RTX 3080 providing 251.1 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RTX 3080 has a 86 MHz higher core clock speed and 32 more Render Output Units than the GeForce GTX 2050. This results in the RTX 3080 providing 48.9 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RTX 3080 was released over three years more recently than the GeForce GTX 2050, and so the RTX 3080 is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the GeForce GTX 2050 when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The RTX 3080 has 6144 MB more video memory than the GeForce GTX 2050, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. However, overall, the GeForce GTX 2050 has superior memory performance.

The GeForce GTX 2050 has 112.1 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the RTX 3080, which means that the memory performance of the GeForce GTX 2050 is massively better than the RTX 3080.

The GeForce RTX 3080 MSI Gaming X Trio 10GB has 8704 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce GTX 2050 has 640. However, the actual shader performance of the RTX 3080 is 14884 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce GTX 2050 is 931. The RTX 3080 having 13953 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RTX 3080 delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the GeForce GTX 2050.

The RTX 3080 transistor size technology is 6 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce GTX 2050. This means that the RTX 3080 is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce GTX 2050.

The GeForce RTX 3080 MSI Gaming X Trio 10GB requires 320 Watts to run and the GeForce GTX 2050 requires 75 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 750 Watts for the RTX 3080 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the GeForce GTX 2050. The RTX 3080 requires 245 Watts more than the GeForce GTX 2050 to run. The difference is significant enough that the RTX 3080 may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the GeForce GTX 2050.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview The GeForce RTX 3080 MSI Gaming X Trio 10GB is a High-End Graphics Card based on the Ampere Architecture. This card has also been rumoured to be called the GeForce GTX 2180. Architecture It equips an Ampere GPU Codenamed GA102 which is a First Gen Ampere GPU and has 20 SM activated, offering 3386 Shader Processing Units, 212 TMUs and 64 ROPs. The Ampere architecture provides the world's best consumer support for real-time ray-tracing technology, or RTX. It also has 544 Tensor Cores for AI purposes. GPU Name: GA102 GPU The central unit runs at 1440MHz and goes up to 1710MHz in Turbo Mode. Memory The GPU accesses a 10GB frame buffer of Third Gen GDDR6X through a 320-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 1750MHz, or 14GHz effective. Total memory bandwidth is 448 Gb/s. Power Consumption With a rated board TDP of 320W, it requires at least a 750W PSU with available three 8-pin power connector. Performance Predicted performance of the GeForce RTX 3080 MSI Gaming X Trio 10GB suggests it will be faster than the Geforce RTX 2080 Ti, making it a suitable graphics card for 4K gaming. System Suggestions The GeForce RTX 3080 MSI Gaming X Trio 10GB is best suited for resolutions up to and including 3840x2160. We recommend a High-End Processor and 16GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.Overview
The GeForce GTX 2050 is an expect Nvidia low-end graphics card due to launch in 2019. The GTX 2050 is designed to compete against AMD's more affordable gaming cards such as the RX 550 and the RX 560, and expected to replace the outgoing GTX 1050.

Architecture
The Turing Architecture aims for 30-50% as much performance as the previous-gen Turing Architecture.

GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Turing T107-400 which has [TBA] SM activated and thus [TBA] Shader Processing Units, [TBA] TMUs and [TBA] ROPs. The central unit runs at [TBA]MHz and goes up to [TBA]MHz with the Boost Clock.

Memory
The GPU accesses a 4GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 128-bit memory interface, while the memory clock Operates at 3504MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 75W, it relies entirely on the PCI Slot for power, meaning no extra connectors are required.

Performance
The GTX 2050 will enable low to mid-level graphics performance on modern AAA 2018 released games. Although there will be variations on this frame rate we expect this card to deliver around 50+ FPS on medium graphics settings at a 1080p screen resolution.
Comparatively, this card will have slightly faster performance than the GTX 1050 Ti.

System Suggestions
The GeForce GTX 2050 is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080, so our recommendation would be to use 1600x900 in order to get the most out of your settings. We recommend a high-end processor such as the i5-7500 and 8GB of RAM for optimal performance.
