Nvidia intent with these new GPUs is for users who want to play games but also get work done like photo/video editing and other content creation activities. Dell’s new XPS 15 and 17 ‘Creator’ laptops feature these GPUs. What’s interesting about these GPUs is that Nvidia is shipping them with ‘Studio’ drivers and in the case of Dell’s XPS 17 it ships with the studio drivers even though it also features a RTX 3060 GPU. It would seem that this year, there will be a new category of gaming and content creation that some ‘Creator’ laptops will cater to.

Perhaps the biggest news around the 3050 GPUs is that real-time Ray tracing and DLSS is coming to more affordable machines now like Dell’s G5, Lenovo’s Legion 5i, Acer’s Nitro and many more.
