Here we present the average clock speed for each graphics card while running the 3DMark Fire Strike Ultra stress test 20 times. We use GPU-Z to record the GPU core frequency during the Fire Strike Ultra runs. We calculate the average core frequency during the entire 20-run test to present here.
In terms of on-paper specs, reference RX 5700 has a rated game clock of 1625MHz, and the RX 5700 Pulse has a rated game clock of 1700MHz. While the reference card did exceed its rated game clock by around 30MHz, the Pulse averaged 1705MHz, putting it pretty much bang on with its rated clock speed. This gives it a 3% frequency advantage over the reference card, tying in very neatly with the small performance gains we saw from this card in our games testing.
