[I am using adaptive power management mode] iirc my fury was clocking down the GPU whenever the framerate was below what it could put out even without chill being on. Not seeing this on my nvidia card made me wonder if they are actually dumber. Is my setup bugged? I get the sense that they throttle frequency only based on power targets and temperature. What does the power management mode on adaptive option do if not this? Also it seems the clock speed is directly linked to voltage and voltage is linked to power target. So all its doing is changing voltage to hold the target and frequency follows? Felt like i had more freedom with the fury. it looked more like for AMD the power target was just a maximum, not an actual target. it matters because I could end up using more power overall than the fury. In fact I think I will just off the idle comparison. Which would mean the efficiency people talk about is mostly for people going full tilt gaming and those who cap their framerates might actually have worse efficiency. could someone more familiar with these cards chime in?
