What AMD Didn't Tell Us: 21.4.1 Drivers Improve Non-Gaming Power Consumption By Up To 72%

AMD's recently released Radeon Software Adrenalin 21.4.1 WHQL drivers lower non-gaming power consumption, our testing finds. AMD did not mention these reductions in the changelog of its new driver release. We did a round of testing, comparing the previous 21.3.2 drivers, with 21.4.1, using Radeon RX 6000 series SKUs, namely the RX 6700 XT, RX 6800, RX 6800 XT, and RX 6900 XT. Our results show significant power-consumption improvements in certain non-gaming scenarios, such as system idle and media playback.

The Radeon RX 6700 XT shows no idle power draw reduction; but the RX 6800, RX 6800 XT, and RX 6900 XT posted big drops in idle power consumption, at 1440p, going down from 25 W to 5 W (down by about 72%). There are no changes with multi-monitor. Media playback power draw sees up to 30% lower power consumption for the RX 6800, RX 6800 XT, and RX 6900 XT. This is a huge improvement for builders of media PC systems, as not only power is affected, but heat and noise, too.

Why AMD didn't mention these huge improvements is anyone's guess, but a closer look at the numbers could drop some hints. Even with media playback power draw dropping from roughly 50 W to 35 W, the RX 6800/6900 series chips still end up using more power than competing NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30-series SKUs. The RTX 3070 pulls 18 W, while the RTX 3080 does 27 W, both of which are lower. We tested the driver on the older-generation RX 5700 XT, and saw no changes. Radeon RX 6700 XT already had very decent power consumption in these states, so our theory is that for the Navi 22 GPU on the RX 6700 XT AMD improved certain power consumption shortcomings that were found after RX 6800 release. Since those turned out to be stable, they were backported to the Navi 21-based RX 6800/6900 series, too.

And we're well-positioned for further growth as we have tripled our commercial notebook design wins with the largest OEMs this year. In graphics, revenue increased by a strong double-digit percentage year over year and sequentially, led by channel sales growth as revenue from our high-end Radeon 6000 GPUs more than doubled from the prior quarter. We introduced our Radeon 6700 XT desktop GPU with leadership 1440p gaming performance in March and are on track for the first notebooks featuring our leading-edge mobile RDNA 2 architecture to launch later this quarter. We expect Radeon 6000 Series GPU sales to grow significantly over the coming quarters as we ramp production.

Esperemos que isto seja verdade e resulte em mais gráficos no mercado.
Tendo em conta que é uma afirmação feita para os accionistas, tem mais peso e consequência...


Ora ai esta, uma placa com design bakano. Resta saber se é eficiente.

Um PCB preto ficava no ponto, mas com aquele backplate full cover, mal se vê isso...

Mais tretas do Coreteks e outros youtubers do mesmo calibre.
Alguém se lembra, de quando estes youtubers disseram, que o FSR era para ser lançado em Março?
Claro que se continuarem a atirar meses á parede, um deles vai acertar, eventualmente.

A unica confirmação oficial que temos é que vai sair este ano, algo que foi novamente dito pelo Frank Azor recentemente. Mas estas coisas valem o que valem, o que interessa é que quando saia seja verdadeiramente uma alternativa, até porque as RDNA2 que podem beneficiar verdadeiramente de uma solução de upscaling ainda nem sairam devido aos problemas na industria de semi condutores.

Acho que o que faz sentido é lançarem o FSR na mesma altura do lançamento da 6600 e 6500, mas isto sou eu a especular.
