XFX True Clock Technology
BIOS Controlled overclocking
Software controlled clock speeds can be hindered by overall computer performance. XFX's True Clock however is hardware controlled clock speed performance optimization, so your card is always running at an optimized performance level.
Radeon™ CHILL Technology
Smart GPU control
Radeon™ Chill is an intelligent power-saving feature for Radeon™ graphics that dynamically regulates framerate based on your movements in-game. During peak gameplay, Radeon Chill works to deliver the full framerate potential of Radeon graphics. As movement decreases, Radeon Chill reduces your gameplay framerate. Designed to save power, lower temperature, and increase GPU life, Radeon Chill enables high performance graphics when you battle and saves power when you explore.
Radeon™ ReLive Software
Share your victories
Effortlessly capture, stream, and share your memorable moments and clutch victories with Radeon™ ReLive. Included free with the Radeon™ Crimson Software Package
Designed for Vulkan Cross Platform Graphics
The next generation graphics API from Khronos.
Vulkan is the new generation, open standard API for high-efficiency access to graphics and compute on modern GPUs. This ground-up design, previously referred to as the Next Generation OpenGL Initiative, provides applications direct control over GPU acceleration for maximized performance and predictability.
AMD FreeSync™ 2 Technology
