Earlier this month, Russian modder, VIK-on, managed to mod his NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 8 GB graphics card with 16 GB GDDR6 memory.

The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 16 GB modded graphics card used by the YouTuber is the same one that was modded by VIK-on & was borrowed by them. The mod isn’t something that anyone could do and requires some technical and engineering expertise to make the whole thing work. With the card now in the hands of Pro Hi-Tech, we get to see some performance benchmarks in several AAA gaming titles and see just how much of a performance difference the doubling of memory capacity has to offer.
The NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 with 16 GB would definitely offer better performance at much higher resolutions such as 1440p and 2160p. The card would also be able to handle games with higher-res textures and ultra quality ray tracing much better given that it has twice the VRAM buffer size. The tests show that the average gaming FPS sees a slight uplift but it’s really the 0.1% and 1% lows that get the biggest uplift. The 0.1% lows see an FPS boost of up to 90% with 16 GB GDDR6 memory vs 8 GB on the standard RTX 3070 graphics card.
