A German star overclocker has set a new frequency record for the GPU with the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT card developed by PowerColor.
While all the 6900 XT cards are fast, the LiquidDevil Ultimate Radeon RX is more than just 16 phase VRM, three 8-pin auxiliary PCIe power supplies, and some liquid nitrogen. The board doesn’t look like a clock speed limit, but without changing its VRM, you can drive it to 3,225 GHz.
The expert has managed to increase the clock rate of 6900 XT, due to its 26.8 billion transistors, to an extraordinary 3.225 MHz, thanks to the liquid nitrogen cooling. Previous overclocking GPU reports included the use of K|NGP|N-branded board and configurable VRM with power supply modification graphics cards.
The company quickly capped the high frequency of its RX 6800 XT (NavI 21 XT), at 2.80 GHz and the maximum clock of the Radeon RX 6900 XT (Naxi 21 XT), at 3.0 GHz, when AMD presented its Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT cards about half a year ago.
AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT
On a Radeon RX 6900 XT, one very popular OverClocker was able to run it all the way to 3,225 MHz records! This is more than Ampere cards can achieve for Nvidia’s own flagship.
A host of experts take overclocking dead seriously and test the ability of GPUs for beginners and other curious people who want to see how close they are to oversight or even those who are trying to qualify for the 3DMark Time Spy Extreme Hall of Fame.
Limit for overclocking
These limitations often go beyond realistic limits, showing that games like Doom Eternal can run in huge 1,000 frames a second! Last year, a certain overclocker was able to drive a very rusty Intel Celeron D 347 CPU up to 8.36 GHz.
One drove an Intel Core i9-10900K, relatively new to a stunning 7.7 GHz. A certain Chinese overclocker could show earlier this month that a DDR4 RAM actually reaches 3,578 MHz! A little bit earlier! The DDR-7004 was the RAM used.
New record for overclocking
New limits are only recently being defeated as a very common overclocker. Recently, YouTuber Der8auer or Roman Hartung set a brand-new GPU core frequency record using the Radeon RX 6900 XT Ultimate Liquid Devil from PowerColor with fluid nitrogen cooling.
The key explanation is that the Navi 21 XTXH had a binned processor with an excellent 4GHz clock limit. On the other hand, the RX 6900 XT GPUs have just a 3 GHz maximum.
Although the best-obtained price of overclocking is slightly below the potential four GHz limit, it still results in a formidable world document of 3,225 MHz! This should not be the first time anyone has managed to drive a GPU as far as the previous Three GHz is concerned.
According to PC Gamer, the earlier Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080 Ti was the undisputed champion and achieved an enormous 3,024 MHz result. This would only be achieved if the printed circuit board was actually modulated and the common voltage locks circumvented.
The latest RTX 3090 was easy to ascend to 3,015 MHz by comparability. However, consumers can set up Crysis Three by themselves VRAM and still manage the sport for themselves.
