    Does it support 4870x2?
    I sent you a private message with the link to a debug version, you can tell me what it prints out for number of adapter and number of performance levels. That should help locating the exact problem. If you could also post your catalyst version.

      If someone else has a X2 card with the same problem let me know I can send you the debug version if the problems hasn't been fixed already.

        Hi Sabby, I have tested the beta version.

        It reports:
        The overdrive performance levels:2
        The number of adapters:8

        While I have dual 4870x2 cards in my system, so there should be 4 adapters. I remember that, when I tested the example code in ADL SDK, I got the same result that it reports 8 adapters. While in fact, there are only 4 active adapters.

        My os is opensuse 10.3 64bit and the driver version is 9.6v in 64bit.

          Alright I see what the problem is, I will fix it and send you another beta with private message so you can confirm if it works.

            On a side note I wish there was a little bit more documentation on the SDK, I browsed through most of the docs AMD released and can't find any info about performance levels. It's a mystery why my 4830 has 3 performance level and your 4870X2 only 2, maybe something in the driver that will be fixed later...

              Alright I sent you a private message with a new debug version, it should now be working properly. Let me know.

                Thank you. I will test it.

                BTW, as I have four cards in a system, if I tune the voltage with this tool, will it tune the four cards simultaneously?
                If so, could you make it tune each card seperately?

                  Yes it would do it for all of them at the same time. However, I can add that feature in a future version.

                    AFAIK the different number of levels is a function of the BIOS (ie specific to board SKU) not the driver.

                      Thank you very much for this info bridgman, is there a minimum number of level that must be present? Can level on one bios mean different thing on another, e.g. level 0 is idle on one card and peak settings on another?

                        I think so but not 100% sure. Thought there was some kind of string or name that went along with each level describing what it was for but haven't really looked at it much. Once we get 6xx/7xx 3D a bit more solid we'll start looking at the power management bits in more detail.

                          Yeah, sabby, this version works well for my 4870x2 cards.

                          Thank you for your help.

                            np, published a new version with that fix in it. Should now work in the general case for most gpu bios unless levels have different meaning on certain bios. Thankfully it seems that most of them use the same level ordering logic or nobody reported it yet...

                              Hello,

                              is it possible that a command line version will be released? The use of the Qt4 toolkit makes it hardly usable under Gnome...

                              A command line version would be usable under almost every linux.

                                The main idea was to have a gui since aticonfig already provides most options through the command albeit minus voltage/fan control for now. If only voltage/fan control is needed over aticonfig the ADL SDK already has a working example which wouldn't take much to change without the parsing. Would rather expand the gui than work on a command line version, but might try to integrate a very basic one to give access to voltage/fan.
