The RX 6800 sends big too

The RX 6800 sends big too

The CapeFrameX friend has plenty of time for DIY. While we were talking a little while ago about the 6800XT’s more than interesting potential, now the little sister 6800 is showing great skills too!


RX 6800: overclocking potential there too very interesting



According to the results, the “classic” RX 6800 can also go up to 2.5Ghz without any worries. The card was able to operate at a frequency of 2532 MHz with an average temperature of 60°C and 63°C peak. This means that it may be possible to go higher with versions with a more advanced cooling system. As a reminder, the card runs at a frequency of 2105Mhz. It should position itself as a serious competitor of the RTX 3070 because even announced at $579, everyone could notice that the prices of the RTX 3070 customs were far from Nvidia’s announcements.

However, with these frequencies, the RX 6800 can claim to tickle the RTX 3080, whose commercial position is now known to be clearly threatened.


The 6800’s level of performance under Basemark



To complete the information mentioned above, here are some other elements on a 6800 card without OC.


Basemark is a controversial bench tool. It is often criticized for being too light and that it does not manage to reproduce in its sessions the sustained boost frequencies that are often seen in the games of the moment.

However, in the end, we have a comparison since all the GPUs that pass under this benchmark are housed in the same store.

We can therefore get an idea while keeping in mind the downside mentioned above.

Don’t forget, this test was carried out on a “classic” version of the card and obviously without overclocking. The card is therefore in 100% stock configuration. We can see that the RX 6800 scored 14635 points using the DirectX12 API (the software tests the Vulkan, DX12 and OpenGL APIs using the same reference scene). This score is actually lower than the GeForce RTX 2080 Ti, but above the Geforce RTX 3070.

We will have to complete this information but clearly this RX 6800 could surprise us whereas its initial positioning had left us doubtful.
