Overclocking

GPU-Z Screenshot for Overclocked Graphics Card


Overclocking works really well on the ASUS RX 6800 XT STRIX OC LC. My jaw dropped when I passed the 2700 MHz boost setting in Radeon Settings, and it just kept on going and going. I almost maxed out the GPU frequency slider, which ends at 2800 MHz!

Increasing the power limit has no effect, the card already has enough power headroom at default.

Testing notes & interpretation
  • Overclocking results listed in this section are achieved with the default fan, power, and voltage settings as defined in the VGA BIOS. We choose this approach as it is the most realistic scenario for most users.
  • Each GPU (including each GPU of the same make and model) will overclock slightly differently based on random production variances.
  • The data in this table shows comparable overclocks, using identical conditions, from previous TechPowerUp reviews.

Overclocked Performance

Using these clock frequencies, we ran a quick test of Unigine Heaven to evaluate the gains from overclocking.
