New rumors arrive around the AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT, specifically a Custom model, the Asus ROG Strix Radeon RX 6800 XT, which indicates that its Turbo frequency may exceed the 2.50 GHz barrier, something that is not a surprise if we look at the frequencies that these silicones reach in the new generation consoles (2.23 GHz on the PlayStation 5).
The information is based on engineering samples, so the final frequencies and energy consumption may vary, but it is interesting to know to what extent the partners have managed to squeeze the first silicon under the RDNA2 architecture even internally. The Asus ROG Strix Radeon RX 6800 XT was seen in the 3DMark 11 benchmarks on up to three occasions with variable frequencies (from 1993 to 2557 MHz). On the other hand, it is indicated that the 16 GB of GDDR6 memory works at 16 GHz.
The most interesting thing is that it is indicated that this GPU consumed a TGP 290W of power (silicon + VRAM), so the full consumption of the GPU is rumored to be around 320 and 355W. The reference models would move with a TGP around 255W according to these same rumors.
