This is therefore a double record, as the Team OGS team has broken the world benchmark performance record. 3DMark but they have also broken the world record for overclocking an AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card, something very commendable because they have managed to raise the clock operating speed to 3,321 MHz (compared to 3.2 GHz of the previous record) even though the speed was “capped” as standard by AMD. Let’s see it.
World record in 3DMark with an RX 6900 XT
The standard graphics cards in the RX 6900 XT were all locked in such a way that its clock speed could not be raised above 3 GHz, which was a pretty serious block for overclockers. Recently, however, AMD revealed its new Navi 21 XTXH GPU and assemblers got down to business releasing their custom and luckily unlocked models in this regard as well, so overclockers haven’t been slow to get down to business. the play to see how many records they could break with them.
The highest clock speed ever had been achieved by the famous overclocker der8auer, which overclocked its Liquid Devil (exactly the same model that has been used to break this record now) to 3.2 GHz, although it was far from stable and didn’t really manage to run any valid performance tests, it only set the record of overclock the graphics.
Meanwhile, the 3,321 MHz frequency achieved by OGS Team is indeed stable and has in fact been used to set a new performance record in 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme in addition to the clock frequency record. You have to take into account that the tessellation was deactivated and therefore it is not a valid result according to the standards of UL Benchmarks (the creators of 3DMark), but it is valid for the HWBot count and has allowed Team OGS to be the first in the classification with it.
They have not given more details at the moment, since as we indicated at the beginning the HWBot page has been down for some time (just after issuing this new record), so we do not know what type of custom cooling they have used in the graph nor anything beyond this result that sets a new overclocking record on a Radeon RX 6900 XT and 3DMark.
Of course, it helps us to get an idea of the potential of AMD’s Navi 21 XTXH chips, which we already knew came with a 10% higher clock speed as standard but we did not know until recently that they also allowed to overcome the barrier of 3 GHz making them overclock, something impossible in the previous models since they were blocked by BIOS.
