Popular overclocker Der8auer set a new GPU frequency record last month when he pushed PowerColor’s Liquid Devil AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Ultimate graphics card to an incredible 3.2 GHz. Now, just a few weeks later, a Greek team by the name of OGS has managed to beat that record by overclocking another of PowerColor’s Radeon RX 6900 Series models, the Red Devil AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT Ultimate, to a blazing-fast 3.3 GHz. The overclock, which was performed on a system equipped with an ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Dark Hero motherboard and AMD Ryzen 9 5950X processor, resulted in a 37,618 score in 3DMark’s Fire Strike Extreme test.
Wow, over 3.3 GHz on GPU core! Radeon RX6900XT WR pic.twitter.com/HDrXBJB69S— Michal Simonek (@FlanK3rXS) May 12, 2021

This is really impressive stuff for PowerColor which shows the true power that AMD’s Big Navi GPU holds in terms of an architecture that is fine-tuned around higher frequencies compared to older Navi chips. If 3.3 GHz is stable within 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme, then we can definitely expect 3.5 GHz or even higher LN2 overclocks on custom AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics cards in future.
