This GPU should idle around 15W:


Please attach a screenshot of the monitoring tab of GPU-Z. Also, make sure you're not running web browsers or any other applications (e.g. a video player) which might be using your GPU in background.

You have windows open with transparency effect so its not really "idle".

Should be 13w for single display and 39w for multi-monitor.

Switch it to 60 Hz and power should go down to 15 W or similar. Known problem on AMD, has been for a decade or so
