The overclocking potential of the Radeon RX 6800 XT would be insane

The overclocking potential of the Radeon RX 6800 XT would be insane

In a week’s time, the Radeon RX 6800 XT will be commercially launched. Leakage on its potential has intensified in recent days. The main lesson would be the enormous overclocking potential of this card. Indeed, a reference model has managed to exceed 2.50 GHz, achieving performance very close to that of a GeForce RTX 3090.

It is therefore easy to understand why cards like the ASRock Radeon RX 6800 XT Taichi has three PCI-Express 8 + 8 + 8-pin connectors.

Other brands will quickly rush into even more daring customs models given the price of the 6800XT and its gaming potential compared to the RTX 3090, which makes its 24Gb of Vram pay dearly.


The RX 6800 is not left out…


In the same logic the “small” RX 6800 (not XT) has some versions which runs at 2.27Ghz with a factory overclocking (out of box). These frequencies are obtained on triple fan references and should allow once again to make Nvidia misery on the RTX 3070 and 3080.

As a reminder, the RX 6800 XT and RX 6800 will be launched on November 18 for US$649 and US$579, respectively.


Two cards that will annoy Nvidia?



For those who want even more data on the potential of these two cards, several results have been listed on Geekbench and Videocardz has managed to compile them into a single graph which shows that the RX 6800 is about as fast as an RTX 3070 while the RX 6800 XT is up to 20% faster than the RTX 3070 on average. In some results the AMD cards are on a par with the RTX 3080.
