AMD is almost done with the promised driver

A few days ago it became known that some of the AMD’s Radeon RX 480 video cards drew too much power from the PCI-E slot, which could lead to motherboard failure. AMD admitted the issue saying that a software fix was in the works. It appears now that the fix will arrive tomorrow in the form of a new driver.

The driver will carry the 16.7.1 driver version and will fix the power consumption issue in a really innovative way. In a few words the driver will make the card draw more power from the provided power connector, which will lessen the burden on the PCI-E slot. In addition to this the driver will come with a special option that reduces power consumption with a minimal performance hit. It can be found in the Global Settings menu and is enabled by default. In addition to this the new driver increases the performance of the RX 480 by 3 per cent in most games.

Be sure to check AMD’s web site right here for the new driver.
