Nvidia RTX 3070 modded with 16GB VRAM runs Watch Dogs: Legion more smoothly

An Nvidia RTX 3070 graphics card was recently modded to double its video RAM up to 16GB, and that custom-tweaked card has now been benchmarked in some games, with some interesting results showing that the extra memory can help in some ways.

The DIY graphics card came to light earlier in March, when shown off by Russian modder VIK-on (on YouTube). He customized a Palit GamingPro RTX 3070 by removing the existing memory chips (a delicate operation with a heat gun), replacing these 1GB chips with 2GB modules to make 16GB of VRAM instead of the usual 8GB (and then employing all sorts of additional tweaking and tuning to get it working properly at normal speeds).
