A PowerColor Radeon RX 6900 XT (Liquid Devil or Red Devil) graphics card was overclocked to a staggering 3321 MHz by professional overclocker OGS, which went on to bag the 3DMark FireStrike world record, with a score of 37618 points on the HWBot leaderboard. It's important to note here, that the benchmark run was done with tessellation disabled—something that UL Benchmarks doesn't consider valid for its own leaderboard, but HWBot allows such benchmark runs, and so here we are. The FireStrike leaderboard has been dominated by the RX 6900 XT, as the card beats even the GeForce RTX 3090 in this test.

This was a run on LN2 or some other form of extreme cooling. No other way they could have got that.

Person uses extreme measures to achieve extreme results, with a card no sane person would buy!

Fun headline, fun time doing it... grats to the overclocker and the card in question. I'm jealous I don't that job instead of my own. Hec they probably didn't even have to do the actual buying of the card. Parkour!

i think you're right as we usually don't hear about record breaks from people who actually had to buy the cards .....is easy to have fun this way

Probably won't take long if it's my wild guess. The first GHz took ages to reach (GTX 680/HD 7970 GHz ed.) but after all, the speeds have increased pretty rapidly from there.

Today I learned something new: Professional overclocker. Hopefully it’s not like YouTube influencer.

I love how this score is going to be par for the course in about 2-3 years... but nice result... I'm struggling to get 7K in TS graphics with my 2060 mobile...lol

Since we are talking about ancient benchmarks (Firestrike is like 8yrs old now), has any records been set for 3DMark Vantage or 3DMark11 using this card? Maybe even a 3DMark 2001SE new world record.

Not sure what you mean? There are people out there specifically paid/working for companies to get records on their hardware for advertisement, Vincent "K|NGP|N" Lucido of EVGA is one of the more known ones

as the card beats even the GeForce RTX 3090 in this test.


The 6900XT is as fast or a little faster in games than the 3090, so it is not strange that it beats the 3090 also in 3dmark.

You mean we know if the overclocker bought a random GPU or if a binned GPU was provided and the overclocker was paid by Powercolor and/or AMD?
Still a remarkable value, but I consider more impressive the RX 6900XT clocks with conventional cooling.

Is any actually impressed or gives a damn about these sorts of efforts that have ZERO applicability to real world use? I don't even find it interesting as an engineering feat, these have to be the most boring sorts of records I could imagine.

No one is forcing you to read or comment, you know. I find it interesting that such a large chip can be pushed to over 3 GHz, it was only 10 years ago that hitting a third of that number was an amazing feat, and that wasnt on a chip this large.

Well, technology has come a long way. Sometimes David wins versus Goliath. All the technologies AMD has been using are open source. So make your Ngreedia peoople have some leverage *oooooooooops*

Well @Minus Infinity has a point, the RX 6900XT clocks with conventional cooling are much more interesting.
