The existing RTX 3070 specification includes 16Gbps memory, which if passed to the Ti model would mean that the RTX 3070 Ti not only exceeds the capacity of the RTX 2080 Ti, but also surpasses it.
However, it is likely that the 256-bit memory bus will remain. It also appears that the new, faster GDDR6X specification will remain exclusive to the RTX 3080 and RTX 3090 for now.
The Lenovo list is far from confirmed, as OEMs often provide for contingencies that may or may not be confirmed – you need to cover all your bases. That said, with several Legion T7 SKUs listed and a full memory specification, it’s unlikely to be just a typo – Lenovo is at least considering the arrival of this card.
Lenovo Legion T7 gaming PCs are listed with Intel Core i7 10700K processors, Z490 motherboards, up to 32GB of RAM, and a line of PCIe M.2 SSDs. There’s just one thing to note: they’re currently listed for Russia only.

The card was also spotted by Twitter leaker _rogame, who only posted a single screenshot of an MSI RTX 3070 Ti spec with 16GB of GDDR6 memory.
There’s no word on the potential price of such a graphics card, or how this increase in memory would affect performance, but both will determine if the potential card will launch closer to the RTX 3070 at 499. $ or RTX 3080 at $ 699.
