Looks like AMD Finally Responded to all the Overheating Problems with their RX 7900 XTX GPU

I guess I don’t need to intervene and invent a cooling system from another dimension after all. Ah, the power of technology!

AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX owners have reported increasing numbers of overheating, prompting the company to respond. Initially, the company simply stated that temperatures of 110 degrees Celsius were normal and not a cause for concern.

AMD denies requests to return AMD RX 7900 XTX reference graphics cards, as reaching 110 degrees Celsius might be acceptable, but thermal throttling is unexpected. AMD is asking anyone experiencing throttling to contact AMD customer support for assistance to address this issue, which is not the first problem with AMD’s latest GPU.

If you’re seeing a performance drop and your fans are running full throttle, you might be experiencing thermal throttling on your AMD RX 7900 XTX.

To check, open up the performance monitoring software, like AMD Adrenalin, and keep an eye on the performance and temperature. If the graphics go slow when the temperature hits 110 degrees Celsius, that means the card is throttling to keep it from getting too hot.

The additional cores for Compute, ray tracing, and AI, along with more memory and a wider memory bus make the AMD Radeon RX 7900 XTX more powerful than the RX 7900 XT. This increased power requires up to 355W, 40W more than the RX 7900 XT.

AMD might have pushed its technology too far this time if throttling proves to be a common issue, even though more is usually better with a graphics card. Nvidia's top GPU, the GeForce RTX 4090, has also had its share of heating issues which AMD has subtly mocked at its press conferences.

We will keep you posted on the latest news as this story develops, as AMD takes note of the significant issue of users having trouble.
