GALAX brings the first low-profile GPU with white PCB
The RTX 3050 6GB on a white PCB.
GALAX and KFA2 have introduced a new RTX 3050 6GB graphics card featuring two different designs. One version is a standard-sized two slots and two fans model like any regular gaming card. The other model, the RTX 3050 LP White is a custom graphics card designed to fit low-profile form factors.
Instead of just applying white paint to the cooler shroud, this model is actually one of the first low-profile gaming cards featuring a white PCB. The GA107 GPU is efficiently cooled by dual 40 mm fans embedded in a dual-slot heatsink.
GALAX is confirming that the card can achieve some level of overclocking; however, the GPU is still limited to 70 watts, meeting NVIDIA reference specs. The card doesn’t have any external power connectors, so it wouldn’t be able to use more power regardless. The entire power supply is routed through the PCIe connector.
The RTX 3050 LP White supports up to 1485 MHz boost clock (representing a 15 MHz increase), but this clock is applied through GALAX software through 1-Click functionality. Thus, this is not a standard factory-overclock so to speak, but something GALAX confirms is possible.
The card also has a nonstandard display connector layout, featuring a pair of HDMI 2.1 and DisplayPort 1.4a. There is no mention of a half-slot I/O bracket for this model, though.
Currently, this model is not listed by any retailer, which means that the pricing is unknown. The vast majority of RTX 3050 6GB designs are available either at $169 (MSRP) or $179 price, the latter applies to OC models.
