Asus has announced the specifications of the TUF Gaming Radeon RX 7900 XTX and 7900 XT and their OC versions. The four manufacturer models all have three classic 8-pin PCIe connectors and offer a clock frequency that is around 5 to 9 percent higher in OC mode than the two reference designs from AMD.
Asus is the first manufacturer to name clock rates
Asus is now the first manufacturer to provide information on the clock rates for the boost and game clocks that deviate from the reference design. While the regular models adhere to AMD's specifications up to a few MHz, the OC editions can benefit from a clock frequency that is around five to nine percent higher. Depending on the power limit, the boost and game clock will be a bit higher for both the reference and the custom.
No storage OC is standard
< p class="p text-width">The 24 GB GDDR6 graphics memory runs at the 2,500 MHz or 20 Gbps intended by AMD and is therefore not overclocked. The same applies to the manufacturer's Radeon RX 7900 XT. Memory OC is hardly ever found in custom designs anyway.
The four custom designs are all based on the well-known TUF cooler, which was already able to convince in a slightly modified form on the Asus TUF Gaming GeForce RTX 4090 (test) and takes up 3.65 PCIe slots in height.

Power limits and real clock are still unknown
It remains to be seen whether Asus has also slightly increased the TDP/TBP or the power limit of the custom designs for the slightly higher clock frequencies unknown. Depending on the TDP limit, which can be quite generous thanks to 3× 8-pin PCIe, clock frequencies of 2.6 to 2.8 GHz can be expected at the top.
