The AMD Radeon RX 480 graphics card is getting ready to launch and just like all video card launches a handful of sits are leaking out information about the new features to get a boost in traffic. The latest leak is from Overclock3D and they have leaked the slides pertaining to AMD’s upcoming WattMan app that will be replacing AMD OverDrive. WattMan is short for Watt Manager and gives AMD Radeon video card owners more control of the overclocking with improved control over per state overclocking, voltage and temperature.
VideoCardz had already leaked an image of interface for WattMan last week, but didn’t know what exactly it was called at the time. Since all the slides have leaked a number of people have finally put all the information and figured it out. The slide about shows the clock speeds for the Radeon RX 480 in 8 different clock states!
The information about WattMan almost stayed a secret for the June 29th launch of the Radeon RX 480, but it appears Sapphire is to blame for leaking out information again. Maybe they just give out information to the wrong folks or maybe they are upset with AMD over things unknown to us.
