graphics card GeForce RTX 3070 Ti 16GB I was going to use the GA104-401 GPUwhich would be the same used by the RTX 3070Ti with a capacity of 8GB. The big difference between this model and the 8GB one would be the greater memory capacity and some modified clocks for the occasion, surely higher. The other difference lies in the type of memory, which in this case is GDDR6, instead of GDDR6X. Slower memory translates to lower memory bandwidth, which is 512GB/s.

Why was this model not launched on the market? It was speculated that this was going to be the reaction to the graphics card Arc A770 from Intel, but Nvidia could have seen that it was not necessary, given the low stock and the performance that the Arc A7 range is offering.

GPU-Z is the tool that is detecting this model, and it does so with a base clock speed of 1590MHz and a magnifying clock 1800MHzwhich are about 25 and 30 MHz higher than what the 8GB RTX 3070 Ti offers, respectively.
