AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT overclocked to 2.8GHz sets new 3DMark world record

With the Radeon RX 6800 XT now out in the wild, professional overclockers are racing to set some new world records. We already saw a 3DMark Firestrike record broke last week, but just a few days later, a new world record has been set for the highest 3DMark Firestrike overall score. 

The run from Takukou involved a system powered by an overclocked AMD Ryzen 9 5950X running at 5.6GHz using liquid nitrogen paired with 32GB of G.Skill 3800-DDR4 TridentZ Royal modules with 14-14-14-28 timings. The graphics card was a liquid nitrogen-overclocked AMD Radeon RX 6800 XT with the GPU running at 2800MHz.

The new world record set by Takukou is 49456 marks, with a graphics score of 62184 points. Compared to the previous word record, both runs have a difference of 1524 marks in the overall score. Unlike “LUCKY_NOOB”, we don't know if Takukou has modified tessellation in 3DMark Firestrike, but he mentioned that no “power modding” was made to achieve this score.

Given how fast these records are being broken, and the fact that we still have AiB cards on the way, we could end up seeing someone breach a 50K score on Firestrike before the end of 2020.

KitGuru says: Are you impressed with these scores? How much overclock potential will the custom RX 6800 XT cards offer over the reference card?
