Today we have our hands on an aftermarket card, the MSI Radeon RX 6800 XT Gaming X Trio. The Gaming X Trio version of this card brings a more robust VRM design, a large triple-fan heatsink, and a small overclock out of the box. The 2.5-slot+ cooling solution includes RGB lighting on top and the front on the middle fan shroud. A full-length graphene backplate with a white MSI dragon cleans up the card's backside while adding some rigidity. Overall, it's a good looking card and will fit in well with most build themes.

I have a few question, please do not take these the wrong way. I'm just looking for more info.

1) The default speed of the card, from GPU-Z is @2045 with a boost speed of @2285 BUT ran @2426. Later you OCed the card to @2345?? with a boost speed @2587 BUT ran @2350. Why did the MAX clock decrease??
2) In the testing of AC:O and F1:2020 @4K the 6800xt is clearly faster than the RTX-3090. You didn't mention why this happened.

Thank You

Great review as always :)
