AMD's RX 7900 series graphics card has been on the market for a week, and despite the performance controversy, the results have changed nothing. The so-called blood version of the new step has been denied by AMD, and now all you can do is optimize the driver.
Yesterday, AMD also released the Radeon Software Adrenalin 22.12.2 driver, which is for the RX 7900 series graphics card. The special Adrenalin driver fixes a power anomaly, which we previously reported on, and allows people to run under low Adrenalin loads.For example, video playback or multi-screen, high-brush displays have higher power consumption,Even more than 100W.
So how effective is the 22.12.2 driver fix? The Hardwareluxx website compares the new driver with the reviewed driver 22.40.00.57 on the RX 7900 XTX.
Driven by previous debuts,The average power consumption of the RX 7900 XTX is 36.5W"And fluctuated wildly, jumping between 28W and 40W every few seconds.
Under 22.12.2 drive, the average power consumption is 28.8W, and the curve is more stable and smooth, with less fluctuation.
In summary, AMD's new drivers do reduce power consumption,But the reduction from 36.5W to 28.8W is only about 7W, which is still high for a single display load.
Anyway, the new driver is useful, but not much use, failed to completely solve the problem, may be launched too fast, hope to continue to optimize it.
