GIGABYTE RTX 3070 VISION OC, it says 220w TDP, that cant be right?

Also it has been changed at some point it said 270w, which is the official "TDP" or power limit.

Im not sure where to report this apparent error, so maybe it can be corrected this way?

RTX 3070 reference TDP is 220 W. Gigabyte doesn't publish any other number on their specs page, so 220 W it must be?

I see, yes the reference is 220w , but thats obviously changed for some aftermarket cards. Its just weird because I could swear it did show the correct 270w half a year ago or so? I think on the Gigabyte site too, I'll have to try dig up some old screenshots I guess, but it would be weird if they had changed that.

Anyways its 270w. Has always been on this card.

Edit: I didnt find exactly what i was looking for, although i know i checked this before buying the card last year, but i found this, basically says the same thing, default is 270w, same as max.

(although this is the Gaming OC, which is identical, besides the secondary Vbios afaik)
