AMD boosts Radeon RX 7900 GRE overclocking with their latest drivers

AMD unlocks the RX 7900 GRE’s overclocking potential with a new driver update

With the release of AMD Software 24.3.1, AMD has unlocked the overclocking potential of their Radeon RX 7900 GRE graphics cards. Now, users of this graphics card can overclock their GPU’s GDDR6 memory to higher levels. These overclocks can enable a huge increase in GPU performance.

Before the release of AMD’s newest drivers, the RX 7900 GRE’s memory overclocking cap was 2316 MHz. Now, overclockers can push memory frequencies to 3,000 MHz. In fact, many of AMD’s RX 7900 GRE GPUs ship with GDDR6 memory chips that are rated for 20 Gbps speeds. This allows users to overclock to around 2604 MHz (20 Gbps) without pushing beyond their memory’s rated speeds. In effect, this makes 20 Gbps memory overclocks easy to achieve on most RX 7900 GRE GPUs.

By default, the RX 7900 GRE has its memory speeds set to 18 Gbps. With a overclock to 20 Gbps, memory speeds (and bandwidth) are increased by 11.1%. Add this boost to standard GPU core clock speed overclock, AMD RX 7900 GRE users can achieve some incredible performance gains.

Through overclocking, TechPowerUp has managed to achieve a 14.9% performance boost with their Radeon RX 7900 GRE graphics card. That’s enough to get the GRE to start biting on the heels of AMD’s more expensive Radeon RX 7900 XT.

Evidently, AMD’s newest Radeon drivers have turned their RX 7900 GRE into a monster overclocker. This should help to increase demand for this new AMD GPU, as now it represents greater value for money for overclockers.
