AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT hits 2.8 GHz under LN2, manages a stunning 61K in 3DMark Fire Strike
Chinese overclocker Takukuo set a new record for AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT overclocking. Takukuo managed to push the Big Navi card all the way up to 2.8 GHz under LN2 cooling. At this incredible clock speed, the RX 6800 XT broke past the 60K barrier in 3DMark Fire Strike, posting a graphics score of 61,831.
This feat is all the more remarkable considering that the current all-time record for GPU clocks is 3 GHz, achieved on an LN2-cooled GeForce GTX 1060. With time, as overclockers get their hands on higher-binned Big Navi units, we should see even better results.
These results and the 3DMark record are interesting, considering that the RX 6800 XT isn't even AMD's top-tier Big Navi card. The Radeon RX 6900 XT is slated to launch on December 6th, and features a full complement of 80 compute units. The additional 10 percent of compute horsepower here means that RX 6900 XT units will likely break the 6800 XT's 3DMark record with ease.
