Nvidia’s RTX 4050 graphics card for laptops is apparently out, or at least what appears to be a mobile GPU has been discovered on Twitter.
How Tom’s gear (opens in a new tab) spotted, the RTX 4050 has been spotted in benchmarks as posted by Benchleaks on Twitter.

The PugetBench results are for the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro laptop, which is listed as equipped with an Intel Core i7-13700H processor along with an RTX 4050 notebook graphics card (plus 16GB of system RAM).
As always, we shouldn’t get carried away by any online leaks, so proceed with a properly cautious head on skeptical shoulders – but it’s still an exciting potential look at what could be Lovelace’s more affordable laptop GPU.
What is the score of the RTX 4050 laptop graphics card? This would be an overall score of 1124 with 57.4 GPU points on PugetBench with Premiere Pro 22.6.2, compared to 1009 points and 48.9 GPU points for the Dell XPS 15 model with a Core i7-12700H processor and an RTX 3050 laptop graphics card.
Analysis: RTX 4050 goodness is just around the corner?
In terms of performance, so we’re looking at a theoretically 18% (or so) faster RTX 4050 vs RTX 3050 GPU, but of course, let’s apply some strong spice to any leaked benchmark and remember that the RTX 4050 will likely (well, it will) perform better than when the graphics card is actually available in laptops (with driver versions).
While trying to draw conclusions about speed is uncertain at this point, it’s really interesting to see the RTX 4050 show up at all. So far, we’ve only seen heavy hitters from Nvidia’s next-gen Lovelace series – and desktop cards at that – but suddenly yesterday we witnessed a juicy RTX 4060 leak, and now the RTX 4050 has picked up.
Now, by all accounts, the desktop RTX 4060 is still a long way off – probably more than half a year – but after actually seeing an RTX 4050 (assuming it’s genuine) inside a test laptop, we can hope that this particular Lovelace GPU isn’t too far from the exit.
Indeed, we can cross our fingers that this is a sign that Nvidia is poised to reveal the RTX 4050 and possibly other next-gen laptop GPUs at CES 2023 in January. After all, the theory is that we’re going to see Intel’s Raptor Lake mobile CPUs very soon, and pairing them with the RTX 40 series laptop GPUs will create some really powerful gaming laptops – as we’ve pointed out, these are definitely future models to look at beforehand .
