Nvidia: A youtuber creates an RTX 2070 with 16 GB of memory

Whilst Nvidia has never been too generous in terms of VRAM on their latest cards, a youtuber has remedied this problem by adding 8 GB to its own RTX 2070.

The new memory was well recognized by GPU-Z and other test software such as FurMark or 3DMark. However, despite the fact that the card works, the addition of memory made it unstable to the point of failing several FurMarktests. The same observation can be made for 3DMark TimeSpy, where the card reaches 6176 points, whereas the average score for an RTX 2070 is 9107points.
