XFX Mercury 319 RX 6800 XT Review

XFX isn’t a brand we see too often here on eTeknix, and their GPU reviews were back in the days when we were still reviewing Club3D cards too. They’re few and far between. They used to do innovative and high-end things like the XFX AMD R9 Fury X liquid cooler card we reviewed. Or that whacky and rather enormous PC case they did, the XFX TYPE01 Bravo. Thankfully, it looks like XFX are gunning for the top again, with their new Speedster MERC 319 Radeon RX 6900 XT graphic cards. A massive cooler, bigger overclocks, and the promise of bigger performance; that’s a setup I’m sure we can all get behind!

This is the AMD flagship chipset, which we already know is pretty fantastic. We hoped it would compete with Nvidia when it launched, but I don’t think any seriously expected it to do as well as it did. The remarkable high-resolution performance gave Nvidia something to worry about and it still does actually. Now, with XFX putting their enormous custom cooler on there, they’re able to bring those clock speeds up. The card has a base clock of 1925 MHz, brought up to a whopping 2105 MHz for gaming and a boost clock of 3450 MHz. The idea is that the bigger cooler will see you able to use the maximum clock speeds more often and for a lot longer.
