AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT sets a world record with 2.80GHz with liquid nitrogen.
The AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT has once again broken another world record, specifically becoming the first GPU to break the 60,000 point barrier in the 3DMark Fire Strike benchmarking software.
This required the use of liquid nitrogen, and an avid overclocker (Takukou) to make silicon reach a frequency of 2.80GHz. The rest of the system consisted of an AMD Ryzen 9 5950X @ 5.60GHz along with 32GB DDR4 RAM.
In essence, the GPU achieved a score of no less than 61,831 points in the 3Dmark Fire Strike, making it the fastest graphics in the world and the first to surpass this milestone of breaking the 60,000 performance point barrier. The previous record was set at 2.65GHz with the reference cooling system, which was already enough to beat the all-powerful Nvidia GeForce RTX 3090, so the 7nm TSMC manufacturing process is only bringing joy to overclockers.
The AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT comes from the factory with a Navi 21 XT silicon GPU made up of 72 Compute Units (CUs) or 4608 Stream Processors at a maximum frequency of 2250MHz, so with overclocking it is possible to increase this frequency by 750MHz (+33.3%).
