In office automation everything is more under control, but in a gaming laptop the GPU gives off such a heat that after a while the cooling systems cannot remain silent while maintaining performance. In other words, over time the GPU heats up and the rpm increases which triggers the noise, but if we want to keep this last setting at bay, the performance will drop because the frequency does the same to keep the GPU. safe. .
NVIDIA WhisperMode: Technology That Changed the Gaming Industry
NVIDIA WhisperMode is an ultra efficient mode designed to minimize laptop fan noise while providing good gaming experience for the gamer. How does NVIDIA achieve it so complicated a priori? Well, it’s a mix of three clearly differentiated factors:
- FPS regulation.
- Smart selection of game settings.
- Less heat generated in the GPU.
First of all, NVIDIA is in charge of defining the WhisperMode profile within its GeForce Experience. Previously, the company measured the consumption of each of its GPUs at different levels and scenarios, with different graphics loads and with different parameters, in order to have a complete mapping of the behavior of each model in said game and, above all, of the number. of watts. draw them to determine the most appropriate setting for each type of consumption.
The perfect place for visual setup and power consumption
What NVIDIA does is hard work with over 400 games today. As we know, the higher the graphics load, the more the GPU suffers to move the game and therefore less FPS delivers and more heat generates.
Keep in mind that NVIDIA establishes a different frame rate and consumption for each game. So in an FPS the rate will be higher and the adjustment will be lighter, while in an MMORPG
But there is a point where the scale breaks down and the visual improvement is minimal compared to the increase in consumption. What WhisperMode achieves is to optimize this curve for the so-called “effective tuning”, which is considered the most optimal tuning, therefore this mode reduces sound pressure levels by up to 50% ( depending on the specific laptop).
It is true that we will not have the same performance as with WhisperMode deactivated, because it is a question of seeking the best efficiency and the best compromise between power / consumption / volume, so we must always keep this in mind.
Finally, NVIDIA has enabled this mode for laptops that include an NVIDIA GTX 1060 or better and from GeForce Experience 3.8.
