Which cards is the 3050 going to be relative in performance to from previous generations?

I previously had a Radeon 580 8GB myself for comparison. Assuming the 3050 will be better and a good 1080p card?
I estimate a GTX1660TI. The RTX3060 has 40% more shaders and according to TPU the RTX3060 is 40% faster than a GTX1660TI.

i hope its crap at mining otherwise wont get it at msrp.
this would be ideal for me, gets full video decode for AV1 and can game better than a 1660 with low power consumption and heat. win win if there is availability.

nvidia should do the same with lovelace and insted of releasing high end cards first flood the market with 4050 models.

even if it was that price (which it won't be), that performance is garbage.
i can't believe its 2022 and this is what we get - no wonder i still have a 1070Ti

Will these drop as founder editions or only AIB cards? If the later, I predict £400.
