That escalated quickly..

I mentioned what the seller said and asked if anyone has seen it in the diy configurator. I check that thing throughout the day and have been checking it ever since the 3050 dropped. I've only seen the 3060, 3070ti and 3080 12gb in it since then. Still, I figured I'd ask if anyone else has seen a 3050 because I doubted the seller, but you never know.

I think if anything he got it from the Newegg shuffle and misspoke. Seems strange he'd mention the diy configurator though..

Exactly, I have not seen it posted anywhere here on the forum.  It has also not posted on other notification sources for DIY since its release.  The seller is either mistaken or copied text from another sale on that FB listing.

Why do you care?  Why do you have interest in hiding this from the public?  
You seem to have a lot of EVGA insider info, it looks from your posts could be from an employee of EVGA.  
You claimed to know the ratio of EVGA product shipped and people reported receiving notifications. Only an insider would have this info.

 
Who's hiding anything from the public?  Someone posts something on FB, or any other social media, and we are supposed to believe what they are saying with no corroboration?
 
I don't claim to know the exact percentage of people self reporting their notifications versus those sold.  That is my guess and it is based on what I think is the probable size of the queues and the numbers of members of the forum self reporting.

You claimed to know insider info about EVGA business practices, it is clear EVGA does not have any exclusive agreements with a single seller, if they did they could have binding contractual obligations.  So only an employee would know about binding contractual obligations with multiple sellers.    

 
Let me introduce you to EVGA authorized resellers https://www.evga.com/products/wheretobuy.aspx.
 
jimla65
So you are a EVGA employee\associate with insider info.  And you know DIY never sold EVGA 3050 Black, so Donradeon report is in error.
I wish employees would not use unmarked forum accounts.  Thank you for the update.



I am not now nor have ever been an employee of EVGA.

Can someone with a RTX 3050 check something for me? While just sitting at my desktop, with nothing running, gpu-z is showing a high memory load.
 

 
You will have to download gpu-z. https://www.techpowerup.com/download/techpowerup-gpu-z/
Curious if this is normal for this card?
BTW: When I first noticed this, I thought maybe something in Windows 10 was causing the issue. So I did a fresh install of Windows 10 and it's still the same.

staypuft, thanks for posting your results. Wonder why this card has such a high memory controller load when doing nothing?

Because it feels like you're trying to make a good forum member look bad. staypuft is a great member and I happen to know that he sold his 3050 Black at his cost + shipping to another forum member. He could have easily at that time dropped it on eBay and made a decent return on it. I offered my 3050 Gaming to the same person at my cost + shipping, but staypuft had the card he really wanted because of the lower price.

My apologies if it came off that way. That's not my intention at all, I would never assign ill motives to anyone without all the facts. I simply asked a question, he answered and I thought it was interesting because I knew he got rid of it.

I have found staypuft very helpful and I enjoy his contributions to the forum. Even if I tried, I don't think I could make him look bad!

Yeah, it seems weird.  Doesn't bother me too much since it is sitting at a nice low idle temp.
 
The card itself is a bit underwhelming, but I plan to test it out some more using games that will be played on the budget 1080p build.  One thing to note, I was able to undervolt this one and get it down to 100W power draw and peak of 56C in a micro ATX case with one tiny 80mm intake fan and a decent rear 92mm fan (meaning, meager airflow).  Will do great for the intended application.

I haven't done any gaming testing with the 3050 card. It's just for running my LG CX 55" 4K OLED TV for it's HDMI 2.1 features.
 
Still bothers me that the memory controller load is so high though.
