The AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card has once again been pushed to its limit and scored a record-breaking 3.3 GHz overclock. The overclock was achieved by team OGS from Greece on the PowerColor Radeon RX 6900 XT Ultimate graphics card.
AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT With Navi 21 XTXH GPU Achieves Record-Breaking 3.3 GHz Overclock, Demolishes All Single-GPU World Records in 3DMark Fire Strike Extreme Benchmark
The AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT custom variants have been receiving the Big Navi 21 XTXH upgrade for a while now. We have seen the ASUS ROG STRIX LC TOP, Sapphire TOXIC Extreme, PowerColor Red Devil / Liquid Devil Ultimate, and ASRock OC Formula variants getting the specific GPU variant so far. The Navi 21 XTXH isn't just a binned GPU with higher clocked speeds, it also opens up 4.00 GHz maximum clock limits allowing overclockers to hit record speeds with LN2 cooling.

The previous record overclock for the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT graphics card was achieved by Der8auer who hit a 3.2 GHz GPU frequency on the PowerColor Liquid Devil Ultimate graphics. It looks like PowerColor's Ultimate graphics card is once again taking the crown to itself with a 3.3 GHz record overclock. While the previous 3.2 GHz frequency record didn't come with synthetic benchmarks tests, the latest overclock does.
With the 3.3 GHz overclock (3321 MHz to be precise), the overclocked AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT achieved over 41,000 points in 3DMark Time Spy Extreme graphics test and a combined score of over 37,000 points which is simply mind-blowing. This makes the card the fastest and the only GPU to achieve such a high score in single-GPU rankings.
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.
