Software engineer Patrick Schur has shared a series of engine clocks for what is purportedly an ASUS ROG Strix Radeon RX 6800 XT. There were two power configurations tested (a 255-watt and 289-watt model), and the results appear to be equally spectacular in both.

In a group of 3DMark 11 tests, the 289-watt ASUS ROG Strix Radeon RX 6800 XT managed to hit clocks of up to 2,291 on average, with max clocks going as high as 2,556 MHz. That’s a huge improvement over the Radeon RX 5700 XT 50th Anniversary Edition, which only boosts to 1,980.

The results for the 255-watt variant are similarly impressive, with one test showing average, median, and max clocks of 2,298 MHz, 2,357 MHz, and 2,509 MHz, respectively. On another system, the card even managed to boost up to 2,557 MHz.

As Igor Wallossek warned in a previous article, the TGP values listed by Schur may not reflect how much power these GPUs actually crave (estimations would put their TBP, or total power usage, above 300 watts), but these clocks hint at some very impressive gains over the previous generation of Radeon RX 5000 Series cards.

With the purported performance of the Radeon RX 6800 XT being this high, we’re very curious about what the flagship Radeon RX 6900 XT can do.
