AMD has no doubt surprised with the frequencies of its new GPUs, placing itself a cut above its maximum rival thanks in part to its better node, but also to architectural improvements. We were able to achieve a frequency of 2.55 GHz In our review and without forcing the radiator, what could they have achieved with liquid nitrogen?
AMD RX 6800 XT hits almost 2.8 GHz overclock in first attempts
It’s not very normal to see frequencies of this caliber in a GPU, but the truth is we’re going to have to get used to it, as it looks like the MHz race is returning to its peak. Hand in hand with the overclocker TecLab_Takukou
If that’s not enough, since they’re only 225 MHz higher than our value with the younger sister, the memory jumps to 2150 MHz, which helped bring the score to 49,456 points in Fire Strike, a new record set thanks to a fully AMD PC, unsurprisingly.
This team consisted of a AMD Ryzen 9 5950X, which took up 5.6 GHz nothing less, while memories could be tuned at a speed of 3800 MHz
These figures show the potential of the reference design
Don’t think these numbers were achieved with custom models, not at all, AMD provided engineering samples of their benchmark PCB, so these are values from AMD’s “Founder Edition” design.
The clear question is, where this GPU in the hands of these overclockers with a custom model? At the moment, all recordings with these cards are from AMD reference models, since the user of Lucky_n00b is second with 47932 points and 2.65 GHz (in the air) and the Safedisc user is third with 47725 points, but yes, with a 2.38 GHz RTX 3090.
This allows us to see that the potential of the RDNA 2.0 architecture is brilliant and that the new RX 6900 XT will once again make a difference in terms of both gaming performance and extreme overclocking, which AMD does not. hasn’t done for many years. Will be the RX 6900 XT reach a figure similar to this RX 6800 XT or even touch 3 GHz with custom models?
That would be another record in itself, since although 3 GHz has been achieved with other GPUs, it has never been with the maximum exponent of a generation, which would be really impressive and would leave NVIDIA hit in an area. that he has been leading for a long time. at least 10 years.
