NVIDIA plans for RTX 3070 Ti with 16GB VRAM confirmed by leaked prototype

A rare graphics card has recently been discovered.

Some rumors do turn out to be true. Just as we were expecting news about the RTX 3090 Ti in late 2021, NVIDIA was also preparing RTX 3080 12GB and RTX 3070 Ti 16GB graphics cards. Only two out of three were eventually released.

NVIDIA has canceled the RTX 3070 Ti 16GB model that was supposed to be equipped with the GA104-401 GPU. This card was supposed to feature the same GPU specs as the RTX 3070 Ti 8GB, except for higher memory capacity and different clocks. It was speculated that this could be NVIDIA’s answer to the upcoming Intel Arc A770 16GB GPU, but as we know, the competitor’s card was delayed by almost half a year.

The GPU-Z software shows a base clock of 1590 MHz and a boost at 1800 MHz, that’s 25 and 30 MHz faster than the RTX 3070 Ti 8GB respectively. The result also shows that the card uses GDDR6 memory instead of GDDR6X. This means the bandwidth is lower (512 GB/s vs. 608 GB/s).

As we can see, this card is not a custom model, but rather a prototype using the RTX 3070 Ti Founders Edition design. The only thing that doesn’t look right is the SKU logo which says RTX 3070.

The leaker didn’t share performance data for this card, but it can be seen to work with current drivers, so that shouldn’t be a problem. This card is almost certainly a prototype that somehow escaped captivity at NVIDIA HQ. Interestingly, this leak appears just a few days before the release of the RTX 4070 Ti with 12GB of memory.
