Zotac changelog hints at GeForce RTX 3090 Ti -- but does it exist?

Is there room in NVIDIA's Ampere lineup for another, even more powerful video card? A new FireStorm overclocking software update from Zotac talks about a GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. Up until now, there have been exactly zero rumors about such a model.

Accidental reveal or just a typo?

PC Gamer speculates this could be a fully unlocked GA102 GPU with 10,752 CUDA cores. For comparison, the current GeForce RTX 3090 has 10,496 CUDA cores.

But whether this model really exists is the big question mark. Coupled with the fact that the performance gain over the RTX 3090 would be negligible, the lack of rumors about the RTX 3090 Ti makes it unlikely this model exists. As such, odds are high this is nothing but a mistake from Zotac, and not an accidental reveal.
Even with the fully unlocked core, such a GPU probably wouldn't offer much of a real improvement over the existing RTX 3090. And that's a GPU that doesn't make a whole lot of sense to gaming as it is, even at the high-end. So, logically the RTX 3090 Ti doesn't make much sense at all, although in these days of GPU scarcity, sense rarely gets a look in.
