Radeon RX 7900XTX graphics card runs at a high temperature

AMD released the Radeon RX 7900 XTX and Radeon RX 7900 XT graphics cards based on the new generation RDNA 3 architecture GPU on November 3. The former has 6144 stream processors, 24GB of GDDR6 video memory, and a power consumption of 355W. The latter uses the reduced Navi 31, with 5376 stream processors, 20GB of GDDR6 memory, and a power consumption of 300W.

Recently, a netizen shared on Reddit that he found that the Radeon RX 7900XTX graphics card runs at a high temperature. Under high-load scenarios such as 4K games, the temperature of the graphics card can easily exceed 100 degrees Celsius. The Reddit user tried to use this as a reason to apply for a refund from AMD officials, but AMD refused. AMD said that this temperature is normal for RX 7900XTX.
Based on the data shared by HardwareLuxx, the hottest point of the temperature of many Radeon RX 7900XTX graphics cards is still around 90 degrees Celsius, and in some cases, it can even exceed 110 degrees Celsius. Just like the CPU will reduce the frequency at high temperatures, the graphics card will also reduce the frequency due to excessive temperature, so the performance of the graphics card cannot be fully utilized. Such a high temperature is not very friendly to gamers.
