Took the best part of a week, but it's on the way
My friends 6900XT Red Devil is on the way to, providing USB-C to DP works I'll have his reference 6900XT next week maybe .
I'm still waiting on a reference 6900 XT from Umart from Christmas Day. They have no idea about incoming stock either.
If you asked them directly they always say they have no idea. I rung them to ask about 5900X they said they had no idea, 10 mins later they were up on the website .
Tried auto undervolt (result was 1125mv) only got 18000 gpu score, dropped it further to 1050mv and got another 1k
How does it make any sense?
Der8auer found on the Strix LC that the lower voltage actually made the clock more stable. It'd also be lower temps, remember these things throttle at 80c.
Might not be temp related - I was blasting the red devil @ 100% fan speed and it didn’t go over 60, but still couldn’t get the clocks to go higher
I found the same thing in my testing.
Did you see the post (page 12 post #231 by LtMatt) on OCUK 6900 owners thread ?
Seems a good ref. point for Ref. cards.
Definitely the 6600 and 6700.
The 6800 and 6800xt consume way to much power for a smaller format. They are 250-300w cards.
At 5700xt will use 250W, so these newer cards will be significant improvement in terms of power usage, while offering better performance and new features. Its quite a good architecture, and in the lower range cards, not having super fast ray tracing is less of a concern, because cards are too slow anyway. Dropping a whole lot of good midrange cards will really help the graphics card market right now. Nvidia can barely keep the 3060ti in stock, and people charge over $950 for them.
A 6700xt with 12Gb and a 6700 would sell up a storm right now. AMD will probably ship everything they can make. Mid range cards with 12Gb will also put pressure on Nvidia (who have already collapsed, with the 3060 standard coming with 12Gb, significantly more than the 3060ti and the 3070). While extensive and heavy ray tracing may not be mainstream for 2021, high res textures are certainly likely to become a thing with lots of graphic cards packing 8+gb of ram.
I get a similar thing re - points on my 6900XT but only stock. When buffing the TDC and TDP with More Power Tool the points are the same regardless of voltage. Lowering the voltage can help a little bit with stability, I found that I could get another 5-10mhz at 1.075v in Time Spy, which is probably temp related.
Anyway, I reckon the reason why you're getting more points at a lower voltage is becasue you're less power constrained. Stock voltage is right on the TDP limit, which is why day one reviewers couldn't get any more performance when overclocking.
Lots of custom 6800 XT in stock PCCG
Wow those prices are out of control though.
Yeah, they are still selling out though...
Because people are stupid and will pay it lol.
I'm surprised the Strix LC is still in stock, been seeing a lot of people wanted it.
Almost hit 19300 GPU score with a 6800 XT - this is a good one!
$2200 for a gigashite 6900xt. That's bonkers. $1800 for a strix 3080 don't seem so bad all of a sudden.
Edit: 6800xts are gone. $2200 for a 6900xt is surely a harder pill to swallow given a 3090 is "only" $2600 and always in stock at that price.
I just... wow.... next gen is gunna be stupid expensive. All bets are off now.
