Manual overclocking has gotten a little bit stabler than on AMD's first drivers. We still had to raise the power limit to its maximum to see any meaningful overclocking.
With manual overclocking, the maximum overclock of our sample is 1900 MHz on the memory (9% overclock) and 2128 MHz on the GPU, which increases average GPU clock from 1987 MHz to 2068 MHz (4% overclock). Memory overclocking is now limited by the length of the slider in Wattman, which stops at 950 MHz.
|Maximum Overclock Comparison|
|Avg. GPU Clock||Max. Memory Clock||Performance|
|AMD RX 5700||1726 MHz||1860 MHz||101.5 FPS|
|AMD RX 5700 XT||2015 MHz||1840 MHz||118.1 FPS|
|ASUS RX 5700 XT STRIX||2031 MHz||1900 MHz||118.3 FPS|
|MSI RX 5700 XT Evoke||2050 MHz||1900 MHz||119.6 FPS|
|MSI RX 5700 XT Gaming X||2068 MHz||1900 MHz||120.4 FPS|
|PowerColor RX 5700 XT Red Devil||2000 MHz||1900 MHz||117.0 FPS|
|Sapphire RX 5700 XT Pulse||2001 MHz||1900 MHz||117.8 FPS|
|XFX RX 5700 XT Ultra||2043 MHz||1900 MHz||118.7 FPS|
Overclocked PerformanceUsing these clock frequencies, we ran a quick test of Unigine Heaven to evaluate the gains from overclocking.
Actual 3D performance gained from overclocking is 3.3%.
