Was this savings measured at the wall or using rocm-smi?

I'm try to replicate with less success. Rocm-smi shows 3% power reduction (from ~170 to ~165) with an unknown speed penalty (still measuring).

Perhaps the 20W savings you see are 5W from the Radeon plus 15W from the PSU being more efficient.

BTW, for anyone else thinking of replicating your setup a platinum power supply will likely pay for itself in a reasonable time frame.

Edit: Runs 1.7% slower
