Nvidia's RTX 2080 Ti Can Support 22GB of GDDR6 Memory Proves Modder

Modder proved that a 22GB GeForce RTX 2080 Ti is possible. Hardware modder VIK-on has got famous for installing additional memory on GeForce RTX 2070 and GeForce RTX 3070 graphic cards. He has proven that it is possible to install 22GB of memory on a GeForce RTX 2080 Ti GPU board. VIK-on has acquired a faulty Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 Ti card he needed to repair by rebuilding the GPU, fixing broken PCB traces, and also installing the new memory chip.

It is fairly an easy task to install higher capacity memory chips on a graphic card if you have a graphics card, a new memory chip, a professional soldering station, and also skills. The hard thing is finding an appropriate firmware that supports a particular GPU and higher-capacity memory chips as well.

Nvidia’s TU102 chip supports more than 11GB of memory installed on Nvidia‘s GeForce RTX 2080 Ti graphics card. Repairing the card and find an appropriate firmware that supported 22GB of memory were some key challenges for VIK-on. VIK-on made a strap mod to move the GPU BIOS into supporting memory.

16GB GDDR6 memory chips couldn’t be procured by VIK-on that’s why he couldn’t build a 22GB version of Nvidia’s GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, but proved that it is possible to do so with appropriate chips, hardware, and skills.

So, this was all about the tech update. Until now if you have any queries related to this article then do let us know in the comment section.
