AMD today announced that its Radeon Chill tool, which is part of the latest Adrenaline Edition software package from the GPU maker, now supports games based on the Vulcan graphical API, as well as games that are based on DirectX 9, 10, 11 and 12.
Radeon Chill, which AMD launched for the first time in late 2016 but has been constantly updated over time, improves the energy efficiency on your laptop or gaming PC by reducing its frame rate when it detects lower mouse and keyboard inputs than normal. This is because that scenario suggests that the image displayed on the screen does not change drastically through the mouse-controlled game camera or the movements of the characters controlled by the keyboard.
With the so-called dynamic frame rate regulator, as they are called, the goal is to help the GPU consume less power, which is ideal for conserving the battery in a gaming laptop and also for desktop PC players worried about power. efficiency.
