It welds 8GB more on its RTX 3070

A RTX 3070 16GB soldering iron

In his latest video, the Russian modeller VIK-on has again made his soldering iron talk. He modified his GeForce RTX 3070 (a Palit GamingPro) to 16GB of memory. RTX 3070 16Gb mod The handling is anything but obvious since the original modules had to be physically replaced. The modder replaced the 1GB GDDR6 memory modules (K4Z803256C-HC14) manufactured by Samsung with 2GB GDDR6 modules (K4ZAF3258M-HC14) from the same manufacturer. The RTX 3070 has a total of 8 modules, which means that the total capacity has increased to 16 GB. RTX 3070 16Gb mod

Bottom line: it works!

But once the soldering iron operation has been carried out, the project does not stop there. Nvidia has almost totally locked its bios, so it is not easy to make the card understand that it now has 16Gb. During a long process of trial and error, the modder experimented with different combinations until the card was correctly recognized as a 16GB RTX 3070. RTX 3070 16Gb mod After a multitude of tests and settings (including locking the clock using EVGA Precision), the card finally became stable. The use of several benches, including Furmark and 3DMark, allowed us to test the reliability of the whole system. The card scored 13783 points in 3DMark Time Spy and 4914 points in the Unigine Superposition 8K Optimized test. Both results are slightly better than an RTX 3070 Founders Edition, confirming that the upgrade was a complete success.
