110° C for the Radeon RX 7900 XTX is normal


Since the launch, AMD’s Radeon RX 7900 XTX have been regularly cited for rising relatively high in temperature especially in heavy 4K loads. A compilation of data from several tests conducted by HardwareLuxx shows that most of the 7900 XTX models will approach the 90C mark while some can even post temperatures of 110°C.

For AMD, 110° is a normal temperature for the 7900 XTX

Obviously this temperature level is not without consequences. Noise pollution will be an anecdotal problem because a too high temperature has mainly consequences on the performance level. Soon the GPU will trigger a limitation of its clock. But the problem in all this is that these concerns could have been avoided. AMD would have used thermal paste and bad quality pads. Finally, an inappropriate mounting pressure for the cooling system of the RX 7900 XTX does not help either. It’s a shame to have to “redo” this part on a new card but replacing the thermal paste and using better quality pads seems to solve the problem. AMD should solve this problem by making changes to the next batches in production for 2023. Anyway, this temperature spike is not considered as a design issue by team red since a Reddit user who requested an RMA on his card was told that this temperature level was normal

Hi everyone,

As we know so far, many people are having problems with the 7900xtx reference cards, reaching 110 Junction Temps, 100% Fan Speed and still losing performance due to downclocking.

I have just received the response to my RMA request:


Thank you for your email.

Temperatures are normal, if you have any problems, please contact us.

Thank you for contacting AMD.
