I posted a problem about rx 470 with power efficiency options. For some reason my account has been deleted together with the thread I made.

I want to keep my card under low power consumption when GPU does not need to bump the clock which is why I like the power efficiency setting.

Power efficiency is enabled on crimson control panel, but whenever I play games, it automatically turns off. Even after closing the game, it remains off and does not revert to "on"

Temporary workaround is to turn the power efficiency on again. In crimson-relive-17.4.3 and below it does not cause this behavior. Power efficiency toggle is not changed while gaming or not.


After some troubleshooting I have found out that free sync is causing the power efficiency to turn off while in game.
