Our GPU test PC and gaming suite was updated in early 2022. We're now using a Core i9-12900K processor, MSI Pro Z690-A DDR4 WiFi motherboard, and DDR4-3600 memory (with XMP enabled). We also upgraded to Windows 11 to ensure we get the most out of Alder Lake. You can see the rest of the hardware in the boxout.

Our gaming tests consist of a "standard" suite of eight games without ray tracing enabled (even if the game supports it), and a separate "ray tracing" suite of six games that all use multiple RT effects. We tested at 1080p, 1440p, and 4K for this review with "ultra" settings for the standard suite — basically maxed out settings, except without SSAA if that's an option. Our ray tracing suite consists of six games, and we tested at 1080p in "medium" and "ultra" settings, as well as 1440p at "ultra" settings — with the latter generally being too much for the RX 6750 XT.

We used AMD's public 22.5.1 drivers for these tests, and we also ran benchmarks on an Asus RX 6700 XT ROG Strix for comparison. (Note that AMD released 22.5.2 drivers that incorporate some additional performance improvements, particularly for DX11 games. We'll be retesting performance for our GPU benchmarks hierarchy in the near future with those drivers.) Let's get to the results, starting with 1080p.

    My brother has the 3060Ti with this same cooler. It. is. CHONKY. Sooo overkill for this class of card is gloriously hilarious.
    They're using the same cooler all the way through their 3090.

    Yeah. The annoying thing to me is that Asus doesn't seem to do much with all the cooling headroom. Surely the 6750 XT can clock higher than this without any issue? Efficiency be damned, bump those clocks and voltages and give me 3GHz!

    Surely staying under 60C with Furmark running on air must amount to something :tonguewink:

    Like I get the idea of recycling designs because it means less variations and whatever, but at some point you have to make something different. Lest we see this on a GTX 1630.

    I'd say that falls on the side of "user risk" rather than something Asus would want to cover with a warranty. With this cooler and card, you've certainly got the tools.

    The Strix 3050 and 3060 is basically the same cooler, but with 5 heatpipes.

    Strix 3090 for reference (exact same as the 3060Ti/6700XT on up):

    I mean.... if it's the only thing you can buy, I guess it's nice, but for that price if there's other options, nah.

    That is one killer cooling solution though, and I do like they reuse it, though it looks like a tank.
