According to this initial benchmark leak, the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050 will almost certainly be the most reasonably priced GPU released with the Ada Lovelace architecture, but it will still have some graphic capability.
Puget Bench, a graphics productivity benchmark that focuses on speed tests utilizing a number of well-known Adobe products, appears to have been used by someone to evaluate an early model of the RTX 4050 laptop graphics card. One of the top video editing software, Adobe Premiere Pro, was the one that was evaluated.
The GeForce RTX 4050 from Nvidia scored 57.4 and 51.3, outperforming the RTX 3050 from the previous generation, which scored 47.3 and 43.4. That is a gain of 18% on the first run and 21% on the high end. The RTX 3050 is a quick, entry-level GPU that appears to be becoming faster with each passing generation.
Better would have been a larger jump, but bear in mind that the Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050’s results when it releases may be higher due to the fact that these early tests, which Benchleaks originally discovered on Twitter, will be using a less-optimized version of the software.

To get a better idea of gaming performance, we’d want to see benchmarks that take into account ray tracing and frames per second, and we’ll keep a watch out for further leaks.
There must be some caveats with any benchmarks. Naturally, benchmarks might not correspond to your unique experience. Although we cannot be confident that this was an Nvidia GeForce RTX 4050, it appears to be a real graphics card because it has been included in official ECC listings.
It might not be available until 2023, giving Nvidia plenty of time to make changes, much as it did when it “launched” its 12GB RTX 4080. This is due to Nvidia’s deliberate approach to the debut of its 40-series GPUs.
