Radeon Chill - greater efficiency and lower frametimes
AMD has also introduced a new feature called Radeon Chill, which is a feature that can be used with most games to deliver lower average frametimes and lower GPU power consumption and thermals.
This new feature will make AMD's GPUs more competitive in the mobile market, increasing battery life and the user's electric bill as well as reduce thermal load and best of all it does not negatively affect the gaming experience.
To put things simply Radeon Chill a software algorithm which reduces power consumption without negatively affecting the game experience.
In basic terms, if you are standing still in a game Radeon chill will decrease your framerate to conserve power, but automatically increase framerate back to normal when you begin moving again. During high framerates (above your display's refresh rate) Radeon Chill will also regulate performance for reduced frametimes and increased responsiveness.
The major benefit is that users do not notice the difference between the gaming experience regardless of whether Radeon Chill is on or off.
AMD will be testing every game with Radeon Chill and will only run it with games that the Radeon Technologies Group has confirmed to run without issues.
