    AMD Radeon RX 7900 Series GPUs "Designed to Scale Up to 3.0 GHz"

    Lower than rumored.

    The rumors about very high clocks on Navi 31 GPUs were wrong, but is there any chance we will see a high clock on custom RX 7900 graphics cards? According to PC World who were invited to the AMD RDNA3 launch event, the company said they designed Navi 31 GPU to scale up to 3.0 GHz, which is much higher than official clocks for RX 7900 series.

    AMD RX 7900 XTX has a boost clock of only 2.5 GHz, while RX 7900 XT only goes up to 2.4 GHz. This is, of course, contrary to the rumors about 3.0 GHz clocks out of the box.

    YouTuber ‘coreteks’ claims to have some information on the subject. With the preliminary drivers, board partners are only seeing 3% overclocking potential with custom Radeon RX 7900 series. This is indeed low, but it will probably be higher with the final drivers.

    Unfortunately, no board partner except ASUS has unveiled their custom cards yet, and this brand does not even provide any clocks for any of their ‘factory-overclocked’ models:
