AMD calls limited RX 7900 GRE overclocking support a “bug” – Fix Incoming

Expect Radeon RX 7900 GRE overclocking support to improve with future AMD update

Earlier this week, AMD released their Radeon RX 7900 GRE graphics card (review here) globally. One complaint that reviewers had about the graphics card is its limited overclocking support. This lacklustre overclocking support is due to artificial limitation set by AMD.

Discussing the issue with Hardware Unboxed, AMD has confirmed that these overclocking limits are a “bug”. This “bug” is due to be addressed with a future AMD Software Adrenalin driver update.

AMD’s new GRE graphics card features much lower clock speeds than the company’s other RDNA 3 graphics cards. Once AMD addresses their overclocking limitations, their new RX 7900 model is expected to deliver much stronger overclocking results. This could allow users of AMD’s new GRE graphics card to unlock a lot of additional performance from their GPUs. This could make AMD’s newest graphics card their best value RDNA 3 GPU to date.

Sadly, AMD has not confirmed when their fix will be released for their GRE graphics cards. Hopefully, it will be part of the company’s next GPU driver update.
