That’s a fantastic score. Is that with a Red Devil?I don't see that as a problem ... my 6900XT max was around 20970 on time spy but usually it’s around 20700 - 20850 and that's not bad for a stock card on a stock power envelope. Many people here don’t bench at stock. They increase TDC and so on.
I had 19030 in TS stock speed and nothing touched. I got up to 20300 at 2620mhz/2100mhz and 300W/320TDC +15%, which is how I use it daily to keep thermals down. With 340W/360TDC + 15% I got up to 20700, but clocks won’t go higher than 2620mhz. So clock speeds stay the same with 281W and 360W (the highest I tested but it became hot and unstable). Games are stable at 2700mhz even without vsync and at 4K, but temps do get high if fans are under 60% (my Wife’s limit is at around 53%, after that she starts yelling at me about a noisy computer).
Undervolting doesn’t work at 2600mhz, I’d have to lower to 2550 or 2500mhz max frequency if I want to limit the voltage via MPT. I may test that next, as I like the combination of slight OC and UV. Summer is coming and Tokyo gets to 40C+ at times, so I have to get ready for that...
All in all, we are talking about a couple of frames here, but it still stings. No return policies in Japan if the product works normally, could try RMA, but again, it works ok with promised boost.
