Radeon WattMan is AMD's new groundbreaking power management utility that controls GPU voltage, engine clocks, memory clocks, fan speed and temperature1. Radeon WattMan is based on Radeon Software features but offers multiple new ways of precise overclocking controls. With the new control over voltage and per state frequency curve for GPU clocks, comprehensive tuning control is now available. With these new controls in Radeon WattMan, the extra benefit lies within the new ability to finely tune the exact experience for your games.
Using the new histogram which records and displays the GPU activity, clock speeds, temperature and fan speed, you can visualize and understand how the game/application runs in a single interface, and configure based on that captured data. This complements the initial Radeon Software Crimson Edition launch feature of per profile overclocking, where each detected game can have its own overclocked profile. On launch, that game profile’s overclocking settings will take effect, and on close the overclocking settings revert back to the global defaults the user can also set.
The benefit from using Radeon WattMan may manifest in the following ways:
- Increased Power savings
- Increased Frame Rates
Radeon WattMan is available in the Radeon Settings application of Radeon Software, replacing the current AMD OverDrive™ tab, and is compatible with the Radeon™ RX 400 Series GPUs.
- Overclocking any AMD processor, including without limitation, altering clock frequencies / multipliers or memory timing / voltage, to operate beyond their stock specifications will void any applicable AMD product warranty, even when such overclocking is enabled via AMD hardware and/or software. This may also void warranties offered by the system manufacturer or retailer. Users assume all risks and liabilities that may arise out of overclocking AMD processors, including, without limitation, failure of or damage to hardware, reduced system performance and/or data loss, corruption or vulnerability.
