Logic is just fine thanks. 24 GB of memory on the 3090ti takes 60-80 W at stock. On the 3090 I believe it's approximately double that, since it used twice the amount of 1 GB chips compared to the 2 GB chips of the 3090ti. Now this is useful in that instance because the card can solidly push 4K where large frame buffers are needed, or in 3D modelling work for example.You're logic is just bizarre, to say the least. Everything generates heat, like a faster GPU for instance. You must think that's just marketing as well, right ?
Ampere and Turing cards for instance were power limited in their clock algorithms, not thermal. That means they had headroom to boost but wouldn't do so due to power budget. Why add more power drawing memory to cards if they don't need it?
There's zero practical advantage to having massive amounts of memory on a GPU for gaming. It should be relative to the GPU core performance and tier - nobody cares that the Arc has 16 GB because it's beaten by a 3060ti with 8 GB, and neither are cards that are suitable for 4K, where 16 GB is actually useful.
Chips exist in different capacities bud. You can use 1 or 2 GB GDDR6 chips on a card for example and still saturate the bus.If it has N memory controllers then obviously that card was designed to have N number of memory chips attached. It's as simple as that, you know better than the people who design these thing, you think they do that because of "marketing" ?
