AMD RX 6900 XT snatches the GPU overclock report from Nvidia’s GTX 1080 Ti
Nvidia’s GTX 1080 Ti has reigned because the overclocking king for the previous 4 years with its clock velocity ramped up from 1,480MHz to three,024MHz, however now AMD’s greatest graphics card has swooped in to steal the crown, with the RX 6900 XT breaking the world report for highest clock speeds.
Youtuber Der8auer pushed the cardboard with liquid nitrogen cooling from its inventory frequency of 1,825MHz all the way in which as much as a report excessive of three,225MHz. Whereas different RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT fashions are restricted to synthetic most clock speeds of two,800MHz and three,000MHz respectively, the Powercolor GPU used accommodates a pre-binned chip with a 4GHz clock restrict.
By merely growing its voltage, they declare the cardboard may presumably move the three.5GHz barrier, too. The Powercolor Liquid Satan Final has its personal water block out of the field, which doesn’t maintain a candle to liquid nitrogen however can nonetheless squeeze a fairly spectacular 2889MHz out of the GPU at a temperature of 86 levels Celcius beneath full load.
So, with regards to the GPU overclocking world, AMD’s now the highest canine. Nvidia’s RTX 3090, particularly the one from Galax with its personal crown and LCD display screen, got here shut with a 3015MHz overclock, however shut doesn’t reduce it while you’re aiming for a brand new world report.
The title is only for bragging rights, although, and gained’t precisely enhance fps in your favorite video games. Liquid nitrogen is pricey and isn’t a sustainable technique of cooling – on this case the sub-zero temperatures brought on the thermal paste to separate after simply two hours. Not best for PC gaming.
