Hello everyone. I apologize for the text, I will use a translator.

I bought an AMD RX 6600XT video card from MSI Gaming X.

I read about this video card that its power limit is 160 watts. This is stated in its characteristics. But in reality, this figure is equal to only 145 watts and does not rise anywhere higher. If you add 4% in the AMD Radeon Software, this value rises to 150 watts. I guess this is why the video card runs at slightly lower frequencies. Can someone tell me if this is a defect of my video card or the declared 160 watts - not a reliable description ? Driver version 21.8.2.

In all games and programs, the maximum consumption of my video card does not exceed 145 watts. HWiNFO64 and OCCT show that my graphics card has a limit of 145 watts. I don't know, maybe I have an outdated BIOS version or something else. Perhaps I do not understand something.

normally MSI will make some optimized change to the power consumption, on my 300w power consumption (specification) GPU, there's only 210W in hardware monitor.

Looking at that you a have a good card is hitting a boost clock of over 2600 what more do you want. That 160 watt is the max it may hit not what it needs to reach the correct boost clock. The lower that wattage to reach the 2600 boost clock the better off you are.

My GPU is below max wattage with a decent overclock on it.

In auto overclocking mode, the video chip is capable of reaching 2800-2850 mHz, which is really impressive.

I was just worried that the BIOS of my video card was not up to date.
But perhaps the whole point is in these confusing designations TBP, TGP, etc.

What vbios version your card is using? Check it with GPU-Z at Advanced tab, then scroll to BIOS page.
