Fast technology May 16 news, AMD at the end of last year also released RX 7000 series graphics card, upgrade 5nm RDNA3 architecture, known as the energy efficiency ratio increased by 50%, flagship RX 7900 XTX selling price of only $999, 7999 yuan, than friends flagship RTX 4090 cheaper 5000 yuan.
But the performance of RX 7900 XTX let many A rice disappointed, with the original expectations of exceeding N card far from, since the official performance can not exceed RTX 4090, so by the players to achieve it, many people began to throw about RX 7900 XTX overclocking.
The Der8auer overclocked the RX 7900 XTX to 3.38GHz, which was also tested at 3.25GHz with 650W power consumption and a core temperature of 100 degrees.
But the final performance is still a little bit worse than RTX 4090, running points lost 7%.
Let's move on to overclocking. Now another overclocking master, jedi95, has set a new record, using Elmor Labs EVC2SE to change the Asus TUF RX 7900 XTX graphics card, EK water cooler head, and 10 degree coolant at 3467MHz. 3DMark also achieved an average of 3333MHz in the test.
3DMark TSE scored 18,335 points,The graphics score 1913 points, with the RTX 4090 graphics card is basically the same.
The trade-off is that the graphics card consumes 700W, 696W to be exact, which is almost double AMD's default power consumption of 355W.
Compared to the 450W power consumption of the RTX 4090 graphics card, the cost of overclocking the RX 7900 XTX to achieve the same performance is not small.
But it also proves that AMD is being conservative with the RX 7900 XTX, actually running at 3.3GHz is fine, and the default frequency is 1GHz lower, resulting in a performance gap too big to be cheap even against the RTX 4080.
AMD executive Qishang Wang previously said in an interview that it is possible for them to develop a product comparable to the RTX 4090,But with 600 watts of power and a $1,600 price tag, that was too much for the average PC gamer to swallow, so after much deliberation, AMD backed away.
It's true that AMD can make RTX 4090-level graphics cards, but they consume too much power.
AMD has boasted many times in the past about how efficient the RDNA3 is, but in the case of the RTX 40 series, the same 5nm technology used by Taiwan Semiconductor, AMD graphics still can't match the efficiency of NVIDIA.
