Nvidia’s GTX 1080 Ti has reigned as the overclocking king for the previous 4 years with its clock pace ramped up from 1,480MHz to 3,024MHz, however now AMD’s best graphics card has swooped in to steal the crown, with the RX 6900 XT breaking the world record for highest clock speeds.
Youtuber Der8auer pushed the card with liquid nitrogen cooling from its inventory frequency of 1,825MHz all the approach as much as a record excessive of three,225MHz. While different RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT fashions are restricted to synthetic most clock speeds of two,800MHz and three,000MHz respectively, the Powercolor GPU used incorporates a pre-binned chip with a 4GHz clock restrict.
By merely rising its voltage, they declare the card may probably go the 3.5GHz barrier, too. The Powercolor Liquid Devil Ultimate has its personal water block out of the field, which doesn’t maintain a candle to liquid nitrogen however can nonetheless squeeze a fairly spectacular 2889MHz out of the GPU at a temperature of 86 levels Celcius underneath full load.
So, with regards to the GPU overclocking world, AMD’s now the high canine. Nvidia’s RTX 3090, particularly the one from Galax with its own crown and LCD screen, got here shut with a 3015MHz overclock, however shut doesn’t reduce it if you’re aiming for a brand new world record.
The title is only for bragging rights, although, and gained’t precisely boost fps in your favorite video games. Liquid nitrogen is dear and isn’t a sustainable methodology of cooling – on this case the sub-zero temperatures induced the thermal paste to separate after simply two hours. Not excellent for PC gaming.
