A question that has been asked about the new Radeon VII is how undervolting will change the performance of the card and now [H]ard|OCP has the answer.  Making use of AMD's two tools for this, Wattman and Chill, and the 19.2.2 driver they tested clockspeed and temperature when running Far Cry 5.  As it turns out, undervolting the Radeon VII has a noticeable impact on performance, increasing the average FPS to 105.7 from 101.5, while enabling Chill drops that number to 80fps. 

Check out the full review to see what happened to the performance in other games as well as the effect on temperatures.
