AMD admits RX 7900 GRE GPU has a bug holding it back – and some PC gamers will benefit when the fix arrives

AMD confirmed to Hardware Unboxed’s Steve Walton that the graphics card is indeed hampered in this respect, and that it’s a glitch causing this.

Walton informed us that: “AMD has told me that extremely limited overclocking of the GRE cards is a bug and it will be addressed shortly.”

Overclockers will be able to push the RX 7900 GRE to its fullest extent after the fix

This bit of 'news' is what sold me on one*, oddly.

The OoB OC'd models (Nitro+, GB GamingOC, etc) already help to close the gap w/ the 7900XT.

Being able to OC it further, was extremely attractive.

 

 

*That, and me accidentally manipulating @pioneerisloud into 'enabling' my own irresponsibility...

(He didn't even know the card existed, until I linked him to it a few days ago. Then, last night I got goaded into it. 😅)

I understand that. If price drop a bit and there some overclocking potential maybe it would be able to reach 7900xt level!

Too bad AMD outlawed and gimped the MPT (More Power Tool, Igor & Co) for XT7K..my w-cooled 6900XT has a special 520W 1.25V core MPT vbios - still, even that doesn't get close to the 1kW 4090 XOC though ☠️

Ill just wait for Battlemage. It seems like ARC A series OC'es ok. The fact that AMD gimped MPT RBT and MCT on RDNA3 means that Intel at the moment seems to be the last bastion of enthusiast GPU overclocking.

I run too much 'old stuff' for Intel's GPU to be appropriate.
Intel has precisely 0 motivation to support and improve DX9 and DX10/10.1 performance; and I'm okay with that. Just, it makes the entire uArch-series a non-starter, for me.

 

It is a major bummer that AMD 'nuked' the OCing tools. However, I can see the 'technical excuse(s)', and can empathize (to a degree).

Basically, AMD cannot allow another Radeon VII debacle

 

I wholeheartedly believe end-users should be allowed to do whatever they wish with their owned hardware.

However, it's a matter of modern utility and practicality to *not* allow proliferation of such tools.


IMHO: The move towards le Reddit-tier  'tech-knowledge sharing/advice' has precipitated this.
If AMD lets their users use things like MPT, people will unwittingly spread (drastically) lifespan-shortening 'advice'; harming AMD's product/brand image and giving nVidia and Intel 'an opening' for marketing/attacks. FFS, we live in a world where criminal social media trends are blamed on the manufacturer of the target(s), not the actual criminals.
tl;dr: AMD is being practical, in an insane world.

 

Edit: Looks like AMD's open-source drivers on Linux, got a patch to enable legacy Overdrive API support on Navi3x?

WWW.PHORONIX.COM

For those interested in GPU overclocking, AMD has posted the patches for implementing the 'legacy' OverDrive overclocking infrastructure for newer SMU13-based Radeon RX 7000 series graphics cards with the...
