ASUS confirms the Radeon RX 7900 XTX/XT TUF Gaming Clock Speeds

ASUS was the first board partner to fully confirm the clock speeds of their custom Radeon RX 7900 GPUs.

ASUS was the first company to show off its custom Radeon RX 7900 GPUs, which was written about last month. These TUF Gaming cards are based on the 7900 XTX and RX 7900 XT SKUs. They have a custom design with three fans and three 8-pin power connectors. Each card is 3.6 slots thick. ASUS has confirmed that each of the four announced models will have a different clock speed.

The official ASUS specifications list the “default” and “OC” modes. This is the highest official specification used with a GPU Tweak program from ASUS. Because of this, it shouldn’t be thought of as a “right out of the box” spec. Instead, it should be thought of as the highest clock speed officially supported and won’t affect the warranty.

As a reminder, the default game clock for the Radeon RX 7900 XTX is 2300 MHz, and the boost clock can go up to 2500 MHz. This is 2000 and 2400 MHz for the Radeon RX 7900 XT GPU.

SUS TUF Gaming Radeon RX 7900 XTX OC Edition

OC mode:

  • up to 2615 MHz (Boost Clock) +4.6%
  • up to 2455 MHz (Game Clock) +6.7%

Default mode:

  • up to 2565 MHz (Boost Clock) +2.6%
  • up to 2395 MHz (Game Clock) +4.1%

ASUS TUF Gaming Radeon RX 7900 XT OC Edition

OC mode:

  • up to 2535 MHz (Boost Clock) +5.6%
  • up to 2175 MHz (Game Clock) +8.7%

Default mode:

  • up to 2500 MHz (Boost Clock) +4.1%
  • up to 2130 MHz (Game Clock) +6.5%

The default clock speed of the Radeon RX 7900 XTX TUF Gaming GPU OC Edition is 2565 MHz, which is a boost of 2.6%. But in OC mode, the frequency is 4.6% higher than AMD recommends. On the other hand, the RX 7900 XT TUF OC model has a slightly higher overclock. By default, it ships with a clock speed of 2500 MHz, which is 4.1% higher than the specs. The OC mode increases the rate by 5.6% through software.

Game clocks are even faster, but if the GPU is well-cooled, the boost clock is more likely to be reached than the game clock. Overall, these performance upgrades are similar to Radeon RX 6900 XT TUF OC Gaming GPUs, but it’s important to note that ASUS did have a better TUF TOP Edition with a higher overclock.
