AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 reportedly overclocks to 2.5 GHz average clock speeds

According to CapFrameX, the creator of one of the industry’s best benchmarking applications, has reported that AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 can be overclocked to deliver average clock speeds of 2532MHz, exceeding the graphic’s card’s reference “Boost Clock” by over 400MHz.  

If this claim is accurate, AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 series will be strong overclockers, though at this time it remains unclear how CapFrameX received this data. 

CapFrameX has also reported that this overclocked Radeon RX 6800 operated at average GPU core temperatures of 60 degrees, reaching a maximum temperature of 63 degrees. Those a great thermals for an overclocked graphics card, though it is worth noting that we do not know the fan speeds of this Radeon RX 6800. It is also possible, though unlikely, that this graphics card was using an aftermarket cooling solution, such as a liquid cooling waterblock. 

If 2500MHz clock speeds are achievable across a wide range of Radeon RX 6000 series graphics cards, AMD’s latest graphics cards will become incredibly popular amongst overclockers. This will be especially true of similar clock speeds are possible on AMD’s RX 6800 XT and RX 6900 XT graphics card.

Reviews for AMD’s Radeon RX 6800 series graphics cards are expected to land next week; on or before AMD’s November 18th release date. When reviews are released, CapFrameX’s overclocking claims will be confirmed or refuted by reviews.
