One of the Twitter users under the nickname OneRaichu has already received the Radeon RX 6800 XT before the official start of sales and has performed some tests. According to him, the video card lends itself to overclocking so well that, if desired, its performance will be at the level of the RTX 3090.
Moreover, the difference in cost is $ 850.
The RX 6800 XT can be overclocked to 2.55 GHz, given that the standard frequency of the chip is 2 GHz, and in boost mode – 2.2 GHz. Of course, in this case, you will need appropriate cooling both for the video card itself and inside the case.
A screenshot of the Radeon RX 6800 in the GPU-Z application has already been posted online. According to him, the graphics processor of the base model runs at 2.2 GHz and heats up to 95 degrees. The temperature of the video card itself is lower – 74 degrees.
The AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT and RX 6800 will go on sale on November 18, and the RX 6900 XT on December 8.
