AMD 称在上周末时就已经开始调查和解决针对用户反馈的 RX 480 功耗问题了，目前已经更新了版本为 V16.7.1 的新版本驱动程序。
AMD 称在接到用户报告后经过分析认为 RX 480 功耗问题 不会降低主板寿命或者影响其他硬件的正常使用的风险 ，目前团队正在努力解决这一问题。
版本号为 V16.7.1 的新版驱动程序着重优化了 PCI-E 插槽的供电并降低电流，第二处是在 Radeon 设置中增加兼容性选项，开启后可以进一步降低 RX 480 的功耗。
最后新驱动还顺手为 RX 480 玩游戏时的性能，新驱动平均可以为游戏带来约 3%的性能提升。
AMD 承诺将在 48 小时内发布新版本的驱动改善这一问题，并且后续将继续改善驱动程序来提高 RX 480 显卡的性能。
附 AMD 公告原文：
We promised an update today (July 5, 2016) following concerns around the Radeon™ RX 480 drawing excess current from the PCIe bus.
Although we are confident that the levels of reported power draws by the Radeon RX 480 do not pose a risk of damage to motherboards or other PC components based on expected usage, we are serious about addressing this topic and allaying outstanding concerns.
Towards that end, we assembled a worldwide team this past weekend to investigate and develop a driver update to improve the power draw.
We’re pleased to report that this driver—Radeon Software 16.7.1—is now undergoing final testing and will be released to the public in the next 48 hours.
In this driver we’ve implemented a change to address power distribution on the Radeon RX 480 – this change will lower current drawn from the PCIe bus.
Separately, we’ve also included an option to reduce total power with minimal performance impact. Users will find this as the “compatibility” UI toggle in the Global Settings menu of Radeon Settings. This toggle is “off” by default.
Finally, we’ve implemented a collection of performance improvements for the Polaris architecture that yield performance uplifts in popular game titles of up to 3%.
These optimizations are designed to improve the performance of the Radeon RX 480, and should substantially offset the performance impact for users who choose to activate the “compatibility” toggle.
AMD is committed to delivering high quality and high performance products, and we’ll continue to provide users with more control over their product’s performance and efficiency.
We appreciate all the feedback so far, and we’ll continue to bring further performance and performance/W optimizations to the Radeon RX 480.
