  • Measuring temperature on R500 chips

    Is it possible to measure temperature of R500-based ATI graphics card?

    It doesn't seem to work for me though...

    Code:
    dodo@2nd-of-12:~/private/Documents/Linux/change_powerstate$ aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-gettemperature
    ERROR - Get temperature failed for Adapter 0 - ATI Mobility Radeon X1600
    Does R500-based cards have temperature sensor at all?

    Any ideas? Anyone? Please!

      The x1600 mobility doesn't support overdrive so you can't use aticonfig to get the temperature of your radeon.

      I use lm-sensors with my laptop and it works fine. I have these results:
      raphael@raphael-laptop:~$ sensors
      acpitz-virtual-0
      Adapter: Virtual device
      temp1: +50.0C (crit = +256.0C)
      temp2: +41.0C (crit = +105.0C)
      temp3: +49.0C (crit = +110.0C)
      temp4: +37.0C (crit = +80.0C)
      temp5: +25.8C (crit = +105.0C)
      temp6: +55.0C (crit = +110.0C)
      If i change the powerplay mode of my card from 1 to 3 i have this:
      Adapter: Virtual device
      temp1: +50.0C (crit = +256.0C)
      temp2: +43.0C (crit = +105.0C)
      temp3: +60.0C (crit = +110.0C)
      temp4: +37.0C (crit = +80.0C)
      temp5: +26.5C (crit = +105.0C)
      temp6: +55.0C (crit = +110.0C)
      So temp3 is for the graphic card of my laptop, maybe it'll work for you.
