Ever since the launch of the RTX 30-series, ASUS’ ROG Strix cards are the most elusive cards we’ve tested, having only appeared a couple of times in our testing. Its quite the celebrity, and given GPU prices right now, you’d be surprised how much folks are willing to pay extra for the privilege of owning such a card.
But let’s pull back to entry-level: will people still be enticed enough to go after this card? That remains to be seen but RTX 3050 in itself is a polarizing card at its current price point, but regardless its a card that has a segment already built for it and with its sole rivals predominantly aging cards, its tough to discount the overall appeal of the RTX 3050.
In this review, we’ll cover the ROG STRIX RTX 3050 OC and see if the allure of a cherry-picked card, still has its charm on the mainstream market.
