Built TUF


The TUF Gaming GeForce RTX™ 3050 has been stripped down and built back up to provide more robust power and cooling. An all-metal shroud houses two powerful axial-tech fans with dual ball fan bearings. Beneath, a thick heatsink keeps thermals under tight control. Additional features, including TUF components, Auto-Extreme Technology, and a backplate vent make the TUF a proper powerhouse. For builders looking for a new “old faithful”, this card has your back.

Axial-tech Fan Design​

Fans

Axial-tech Fan Design​

Two tried-and-true Axial-tech fans feature a smaller hub that facilitates longer blades and a slimmed down barrier ring to provide better airflow through the cooling array.​

Fans

Quiet Cunning​

Fans will only start spinning when the GPU temperature hits 55 Celsius and shut off when temps drop below 38 Celsius, helping to reduce noise when the system is idling or under light load.

Heatsink

2.8-slot Design

The heat spreader draws heat up into heatpipes that carry it through a fin stack that fills most of the card’s large, 2.8-slot footprint.

Design

ARMORED UNDERSIDE

The underside of the card reveals a host of improvements. Most of the rear is swathed in a protective metal backplate that prominently features a wide vent. The vent allows hot air to escape towards chassis exhaust fans instead of being recycled back into the cooler. Stainless steel is used for the I/O bracket to protect ports and provide a more secure mount. And a conveniently placed Dual Bios switch allows customization of the card’s default performance profile without software.

Functional Front

An ARGB element can be customized to display a range of aesthetic and functional effects, and also synced with other ASUS components to enable uniform lighting. An 8-pin connector fulfills the power demands of the GeForce RTX 3050, and onboard LEDs light up if the power connectors are not plugged in correctly.
