Good news for PC gamers seeking the latest tactical advantage: AMD’s new Radeon WattMan utility delivers full overclocking command and control of select AMD Radeon™ graphics cards. Gamers and power users seeking ultimate graphics performance and efficiency can use Radeon WattMan to help achieve higher graphics performance and frame rates, greater efficiency and power savings, cool and quiet operation, improved operational stability, and extended service life.
Based on gamer-acclaimed Radeon Software features, Radeon WattMan offers innovative new ways of controlling GPU voltage, graphics engine clocks, memory clocks, fan speed, temperature, and more. Comprehensive tuning features now include precise controls for overvoltage and per-state frequency curve for the GPU clock, enabling fine-tuning to achieve an optimal optimum playing experience for particular games or applications.
A new histogram displays and records GPU activity, clock speeds, temperature and fan speed, enabling users to visualize and understand how tuning parameters affect the performance of a particular game or application, and use that captured performance data for more precise configuration.
First introduced in the initial Radeon Software Crimson Edition launch, Radeon WattMan includes a per-profile overclocking feature that allocates a dedicated overclocking profile for each detected game. Launching a detected game automatically applies a dedicated overclocking settings profile, with configuration settings reverting to user-selected global defaults upon closing the game.
Radeon WattMan replaces the current AMD OverDrive™ and its tab in the Radeon Settings software application, and is compatible with Radeon™ RX 400 Series GPUs. Radeon WattMan combines unprecedented graphics fine-tuning capabilities and customized performance-enhancing configuration profiles in the intuitive and user-friendly Radeon Settings interface in the Radeon Software Crimson Edition.
Note: AMD’s product warranty does not cover damages caused by overclocking, even when overclocking is enabled via AMD hardware and/or software.
