While not relying on a hefty copper block, a modified version of the new 6GB Nvidia GeForce RTX 3050 card boasts a fanless design with Palit’s custom “KalmX” model. This passive cooling system maintains the card’s performance without the need for an active cooling system, marking it as the current top-tier GPU without an integrated fan. The 6GB 3050 may not set records, but it stands as a powerful option in the market with silent operation.
In a recent article by VideoCardz.com, the Palit KalmX GeForce RTX 3050 6GB introduces another unique feature: a DVI port. This older video standard offers a distinctive touch to the card, making it an appealing choice for users seeking to enhance the graphics performance of their desktop system. Like its predecessor, the GTX 1650, this card can also run solely on power from a PCIe motherboard slot.
Despite sharing similar limitations with other versions of the $169 6GB 3050, such as a lower CUDA core count and base clock speed, the KalmX model provides a true dual-slot design and a compact length of 166.3mm. These features make it suitable for users with space constraints in their PC cases. While Palit has not disclosed the price or release date for the GeForce RTX 3050 KalmX 6GB, its compact design and fanless operation make it a compelling choice for those looking to upgrade their system’s graphical capabilities.
