From the community: Optimizing the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT for more efficiency


A reader article from the ComputerBase forum community shows how gamers can use a current RDNA-2 graphics card such as the AMD Radeon RX 6700 XT (test), demonstrated here using a Sapphire Pulse Radeon as an example RX 6700 XT, can operate even more efficiently than already. With the help of Radeon WattMan, it is strongly optimized.

Make Radeon RX 6700 XT even more efficient

In the field report “Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 6700 XT trimmed for efficiency”, community member “der-Kalli” describes his approach to optimizing the graphics processor of the Navi 21 XT type alias “Navy Flounder” and the efficiency cure that he has already achieved Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX Vega 56. The choice of tools differed compared to the Vega 10 XL.

While I only set [the] Vega [56] with the OverdriveNtool and WattMan did not let the chip work as he could, WattMan can really be used with the [Radeon RX] 6700 XT.

Finally, the reader was able to use his Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 6700 XT at a voltage of 1,100 mV for Operate the chip and SoC with around 125 watts, which means a reduction of around 60 watts. Here, the graphics card still does little less than “out of the box”, where the power consumption is 185 watts.

Questions and suggestions as well as praise and criticism of the reader's article in the comments to this message and in the forum are, as always, expressly desired.
