    Radeon FRTC is Chill now:

    Let's talk about Radeon Chill, but first, where is FRTC? AMD Radeon introduced FRTC, or Frame Rate Target Control, back when they launched the Fury line of graphics cards as a way of targeting a maximum framerate in 3d applications. This had a couple of major benefits from doing so. The first and most obvious being the limiting of the top end fo the frames your graphics card renders and is able to keep your game from exiting the top end of the Freesync window on Freesync panels, since this was the time the push became really strong for variable refresh rate. The second major benefit is in the realm of power savings. By no longer having the GPU run full throttle when not necessary you could greatly reduce power consumption.


    In the recent major update to Radeon Software in December of 2019 many users noticed this feature was gone. Poof, finito, adios muchachos. But, there's no need to panic or worry if that was something you used as there is still a built-in feature to Radeon Software to handle the needs of this. Introducing, for those who are unfamiliar with it, Radeon Chill. Radeon Chill has been with us for some time and offers a similar result, at least on one end, as what FRTC delivered but gives us the added benefit of setting a lower framerate for the GPU to target in low-intensity situations. Those wanting to set it to work like FRTC simply need to set the Min FPS and Max FPS to the same number.

    Now on to Chill and why you should consider it. Radeon Chill uses a dynamic algorithm to maintain FPS within a set parameter. Now, don't mistake this for some type of dynamic settings and resolution change because it doesn't change anything but the target framerate, so you can't set something higher than your GPU can achieve and think you're magically going to get more performance. In the simplest of explanations, the Chill algorithm detects movement intensity from your mouse (or camera control stick on a gamepad) and will ramp the GPU payload to increase the framerates to the target maximum. You stop moving the camera and the GPU will relax to allow the framerate to fall down to the lower limit.

    But who would want to do something that crazy? Perhaps if you're one of those people who want to maintain their performance within the variable refresh rate window of their panel then you'll definitely benefit from this. The results we are about to look over is a basic example of a realistic scenario where someone has purchased a new Radeon RX 5500XT 4GB video card and a 1080p Freesync monitor with a variable refresh rate window of 40-75Hz (very common) and we're going to look at the impact of setting Radeon Chill to target that framerate window and what the difference would be if we let it run wide open and tear all over the place. We'll be using our test run of Resident Evil 2 set to 'Balanced' graphical preset.

    The story of the game takes place in “Hadly’s Hope” colony , before and during the xenomorph incident. Therefore, players will assume the role of one of the colonists.
    Players will have to survive by finding some supplies for them and other colonists. Players will also be able to avoid or fight xenomorphs.
