Never before has the graphics hardware segment been as competitive as it is now. The manufacturers Nvidia and AMD brought high quality products that dispute among themselves the fight for the interest and purchase of the consumers.
Recently the AMD RX 6800 XT graphics was put to the test in overclocking mode and managed to beat the 3DMark world record.
After Nvidia launched its new graphics chips from the RTX 30 line, AMD followed suit with the presentation of the new RX 6800, RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT. These cards were an authentic response to the height of Nvidia products.
Of the new chips from AMD, the RX 6800 XT stands out, which will compete in the same RTX 3080 championship as Nvidia. And the tests done have already started to give a better perception of the machine that this printer will be.
Overclocked RX 6800 XT manages to break 3DMark world record
According to some experts, the RX 6800 XT is the best gaming card in the world. And now there is more proof of that statement.
The popular overclocker Alva Jonathan, called 'Lucky_n00b', managed to get this card to reach 47,932 points in the 3DMark FireStrike.
In order to put it in context, 3DMark is a benchmark software with the objective of testing the ability of 3D graphics processing. The Fire Strike version features the DirectX11 benchmark for modern gaming PCs.
Fire Strike includes two graphics tests, a physics test and a combined test that emphasizes the CPU and GPU. However, and unfortunately, these numbers do not count for official charts.
That is, the record was also not achieved in a normal situation of the board. The overclocker then used a system that also included a Ryzen 9 5950X, cooled to LN2, frequency 5.4 GHZ. Lucky_n00b managed to adjust the RX 6800 XT to 2650 MHz through air cooling.
The graphics card did not change its cooling, and it also had a triple fan system for that purpose. In addition, 3DMark's tessellation has also been modified to supposedly promote AMD chip performance.
Although the record is not then valid for the official 3DMark graphics, the overclocking site HWBOT accepts this result and, therefore, classifies the XT 6900 XT as being above the ASUS ROG STRIX RTX 3090 OC.
