    Pretty nuts if true, able to hit such high clock frequencies, while being stable and only consuming a smidge more than the designed power envelope.

    It seems unlikely that AMD would leave so much performance on the table, that would be an odd situation nowadays if 2.5GHz or even 2.4GHz was reliably hit.

    Or they've learnt from their past mistakes of showing the product in announcements at its absolute best (Polaris etc) and having to sandbag.

    Also explains a lot of why NV was in such a rush to release and how poorly the release went

    We'll have to see what the supply is like. Going conservative might be an attempt to get more silicon in products.

    Got to create a distinct margin between this and the XT model somehow!

    how to destroy nvidia .. just make all those that scream OMG have you seen this ..reviewers tech sites .. fan boi's of both sides .. shout amd for a change ..
    the more noise they can make the more market share they will grab .. and what a better way than leave a rubbishrubbishrubbishrubbish tonne of o/c room ..
    What does it matter now if men believe or no?
    What is to come will come. And soon you too will stand aside,

    I'm looking to buy the 6800XT, not optimistic about the supply though. Hoping to get it in time for Christmas though.

    The crazy thing is Polaris really wasn't too bad at OCing with the right cooling. My launch day 480 Nitro+ is currently clocking up above 580 levels and all through one click in AMD's driver. It really was a luck of the draw on how good/bad your chip was and poor cooling solutions that caused issues at launch. With the 580's they had just dialled in the chip production and put better coolers on.

    Really hopeful for these but went for a Series X instead as it was cheaper... Still good news all round for AMD. Will look to pick one up in about a year.
