Like in past situations like this, AMD had their product taped out and Nvidia's competition turned out stronger (or cheaper) than predicted, so AMD cranks the clocks to 11 with no regard to power efficiency so they can keep the product at the price/performance target they'd originally set.
Don't confuse "thermal headroom" from fewer cores (thermal DENSITY should also be considered) with power efficiency (performance per watt).and you know this how ? did you read the article ? the extra head room could be from this
That would be true if the die size were the same, but it's not. Navi 22 has basically the same power density as Navi 21.and you know this how ? did you read the article ? the extra head room could be from this
" This could be a surprising benefit from AMD's new Navi 22 GPU (that the 6700XT is using), which features a 50% reduction in core count compared to Navi 21. The benefits of a reduced core count include less power output and as a result, less heat.
So theoretically, if the power delivery and cooling system on an RX 6700XT stay similar to that of an RX 6800, the RX 6700XT's remaining cores can boost much higher and gobble up all the remaining thermal and power headroom the other cores were using. "
