Hey, just a little curious, anyone know how to do this??

I saw there are some options for using the radeon driver, such as DynamicClocks settings in xorg.conf
does something like this exist for the fglrx drivers?
is there a switch I haven't found to compile the functionality straight into the fglrx drivers?

If anyone knows of anything, or found something like powernowd for GPU, I'd be really happy!

Thanks

Just saw this thread still unanswered:

check https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-135354-highlight-powerplay.html?sid=60ac770243a2642df94913c526c8c22d
or maybe even https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-416689-highlight-powerplay.html?sid=60ac770243a2642df94913c526c8c22d

That thing you are talking about should work since driver version 8.19.10 - unfortunately, it does not for me. I for sure will soon switch to the radeon drivers.

I use ati-config --lsp and aticonfig --set-powermode. with 8.20, it works fine on my x600 mobility. note that you may have to check your LD path if it complains about a missing .so, since ati drivers resides in /opt/.

I was posting in another thread already that the drivers work - somehow - but that there just seems to be one powerstate to choose from. To be found in the ati powerplay for linux thread.

aticonfig --lsp and fglrx_pplay output this
Code:
 ~ $ aticonfig --lsp
  core/mem      [flags]
---------------
1: 392/209 MHz  [default state]
 ~ $ fglrx_pplay
extVersion =     1
extRevision =    1
ppVersion =      3
numPowerStates = 1
flags =          0x41 [no POWERplay page, overdrive version]

Do you know what this no POWERplay page means?

I guess we should keep discussion limited to one thread, though ...
