PowerColor Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Devil Ultimate Breaks GPU Overclocking Record, Reaches 3.2 GHz with LN2 Cooling

PowerColor 6900 XT Liquid Devil

Recently, PowerColor launched two new models of the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT as part of its Devil series. The two models being added to the PowerColor are the AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT 16GB Red Devil Ultimate and the Radeon RX 6900 XT 16GB Liquid Devil Ultimate.

And now, the PowerColor Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Devil Ultimate has broken the GPU frequency world record. The GPU was pushed to an incredible 3.2 GHz by famous overclocker, Der8auer, who pushed the card to its limit using LN2 cooling.

When RX 6900XT was first released, overclockers were disappointed to find that AMD had set a GPU clock limit of around 2.8-3.0 GHz for its flagship chips. Only just recently, AMD started shipping its higher-binned Navi 21 XTXH GPUs to AIBs and we have since seen several new variants come up such as the PowerColor Devil series.

Both these models take advantage of the best silicon and are highly binned versions of the cards, meaning they will be able to runway above the base clocks thanks to the binning process. With the top-of-the-line AMD Radeon RX 6900 XTs from PowerColor, overclocking was one the aspects most important to them in the design stages of these cards.

PowerColor has binned its cards to give everyone the best overclocking experience. The Radeon RX 6900 XT is powered by the Navi 21 XTX GPU. The Navi 21 XTX GPU features 5120 stream processors, 320 TUs, 128 ROPs, and 80 RT units.

The overclocker Der8auer used the PowerColor Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Devil Ultimate graphics card to achieve the GPU overclocking record. According to Der8auer, the higher binned GPUs have a much higher clock limit of 4.0 GHz possible.

Running under standard liquid cooling, the PowerColor Radeon RX 6900 XT Liquid Devil hit speeds of around 2.85 GHz. Moving over to LN2 cooling, the GPU hit an impressive 3.2 GHz (3225 MHz) clock speed which puts it as the fastest frequency ever achieved by any GPU to date.

This breaks the previous record by 200 MHz. The previous world record was set by Kingpin on an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 1080 Ti Pascal GPU.
