Just installed the 17.12.1
I already use AIDA64 to monitor my system and it's permanently displayed on my second monitor.
AIDA64 gives me all my fan speeds, all my CPU core temps./usage, my GPU temp etc, all displayed permanently regardless of whether I'm gaming or not.
That being the case, can I turn the AMD performance monitoring off? I've turned off all options I can under the tab, but I don't want it to have any affect on my system performance, no matter how small it might be. It's being unable to turn off the sampling interval that has me worried (I appreciate Wattman monitors the system too) Or am I worrying needlessly
Performance Metrics do not have any impact on your system performance , and they are active only if you activated them via Radeon Overaly while you are in a game.
