Update: It turns out that the Nvidia RTX 2050 was indeed a typo and Dell has fixed the mistake. You can check out the before and after in the image below:
The Original story is as follows:
We thought that the RTX 2060 would be the entry-level RTX card and that the other cards with lower performance would be under the GTX brand, like the GTX 1660 Ti, 1660 and 1650. Now we have spotted the mention of the Nvidia RTX 2050 in the specifications of an upcoming Dell gaming laptop.
The specifications of the G5 15 Gaming mention that the models with the RTX 2060 will come with USB-C Thunderbolt while the models with the Nvidia RTX 2050 will come with USB-C DisplayPort. This could be a typo by Dell so take this with a grain of salt till we have confirmation from either Dell or Nvidia.
An Nvidia RTX 2050 is very unlikely. The RTX 2060 has 30 RT Cores and 240 Tensor Cores and it barely manages to perform when it comes to real-time ray tracing. I would say that DLSS is more of a major feature for the RTX 2060 rather than real-time ray tracing. The Nvidia RTX 2050 is going to be cut down even further and will not be able to handle real-time ray tracing at all.
The RTX series is for the enthusiasts out there and the GTX cards are for the mainstream users. I think that the GTX 1650 is more likely than the RTX 2050. This is my opinion and I could be wrong. It is hard to say at this point in time and all we can do is wait and see what Dell and Nvidia have to say regarding the matter.
Remember that this is a leak and could be a typo so do not take this to heart. Wait for the official announcement by these companies. Nvidia is going to release the GTX 1660 and 1650 soon and they will be targeted at the entry-level market. You can check out all the GTX 1660 Ti model that are available right now. AMD has cut the price of the Vega 56 in order to compete with these new graphics cards.
Let us know what you think about this Nvidia RTX 2050 leak and whether or not you think such a product is can possibly exist.
