I think you’ll agree that the GeForce RTX 3070 Ti is one of NVIDIA’s lowest paying Ampere generation graphics cards. This system offers slightly higher performance than the standard RTX 3070, while being priced at a much higher price. However, there is no doubt that an extra gigabyte of onboard VRAM would definitely improve this card’s reception. As it turned out, this unit was almost on the market.
The GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16GB is 25/30MHz faster than the RTX 3070 Ti with 8GB of VRAM, but it has slower GDDR6 memory instead of GDDR6X. The leaker did not provide any data on the performance of this card, but you can see that it works with the current drivers.
At the end of 2021, there was a lot of talk about the upcoming premiere of the GeForce RTX 3080 12GB and RTX 3070 Ti 16GB cards. In the end, the former model only saw the light of day, but this does not mean that the latter was just an informational invention. Images of it have just surfaced on the web, proving that the system was indeed about to debut, although the manufacturer made a different decision at the last moment (perhaps due to the late premiere of the 16GB Intel ARC A770 card?). As you can see in the attached graphics, the GeForce prototype discussed in the Founders Edition was built with a couple of fans, and at first glance it doesn’t stand out with anything special. It is worth paying attention only to the incorrect markings on the plate covering the plate (note Ti is missing).
NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 SUPER vs MSI GeForce RTX 3080 20GB Ventus – NEVER RELEASED GRAPHICS CARDS AT A GLANCE
GPU-Z shows that the base clock of the card is set to 1590MHz and the boost clock is 1800MHz. The unit is thus 25 and 30MHz faster than the RTX 3070 Ti with 8GB of VRAM, respectively, but has slower GDDR6 memory instead of GDDR6X – and that means lower bandwidth (512GB/s vs. 608GB/s). The leaker did not provide any data on the performance of this card, but you can see that it works with the current drivers. Well, gamers can now only regret that the chip never hit the market.
