Save power, while chilling.

Delivering power savings, Radeon Chill dynamically regulates framerate based on your movements’ in-game. 4

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 battery life, Radeon Chill enables high performance graphics when you battle and saves power when you explore.
