Last week an overclocker already decrowned NVIDIA's GeForce RTX 3090 in the 3DMark Fire Strike test and now TecLab_Takukou does even better with a liquid nitrogen cooled AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT video card. With the help of extreme cooling, TecLab_Takukou managed to clock the GPU at a whopping 2.80GHz. The memory was overclocked to 17.2Gbps. This resulted in a Fire Strike score of 48890 points.
In a separate feat, with the RX 6800 XT running at 2.75 GHz, Takukou chased down the HWBot 3DMark Fire Strike leaderboard, with 49456 points. For both the 2.80 GHz and 2.75 GHz feats, the rest of the system included an LN2-cooled AMD Ryzen 9 5950X processor running at 5.60 GHz all-core, 32 GB of DDR4-3800 memory, and an MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE motherboard. From the looks of it, Takukou is using a reference-design RX 6800 XT board, so we can only hope what else can be accomplished from custom-design RX 6800 XT boards, such as the Sapphire NITRO+, PowerColor Red Devil, or ASUS ROG Strix O16G.
