The overclocking potential of the RX 6800 XT from AMD seems to have no limits, to set a record.
AMD RX 6800 XT is overclocked @ 2.8 GHz and achieves the highest 3DMark score ever
LN2 cooling enabled the RX 6800 XT graphics card to reach 2.8 GHz, setting an all-time record with this graphics card. This is higher than the previous 2.65 GHz mark, although it was air-cooled there.
Thanks to these exorbitant clock frequencies, the graphics card achieved the highest score in the 3DMark Fire Strike test.
The extreme overclocking of the graphics card was driven by Chinese overclocker Takukou, who used a benchmark Radeon RX 6800 XT graphics card with LN2 liquid cooling. The AMD graphics card was paired with an AMD Ryzen 9 5950X processor that was also overclocked to 5.6 GHz and the CPU was also cooled with LN2. The amount of memory was 32 GB.

With this equipment and these clock speeds, the overall score for the graphics card was 48,890 points and 61,831 graphic points in it 3DMark Fire Strike. This score marks a milestone within 3DMark, crossing the 60,000 point mark. This means that an increase of 150 MHz improved performance by 4% over the previous brand.
These frequencies are strikingly striking. AMD would be very close to offering 3.0 GHz graphics cards in the near future, which was unthinkable a few years ago.
As data, the graphics card with the highest frequencies in history was for a GTX 1060 (Pascal), who managed to reach 3.0 GHz with LN2. This increase was all the more spectacular because the reference GTX 1060 has boost frequencies from 1708 MHz.Zullen they can reach that number with AMD’s new GPU? We will keep you posted.
