    The power management changes really aren't anything to be excited about. We're still waiting for actual improvements. I doubt we'll ever see them, and really, I'm not a pessimist.

      Will these changes solve overheating?

      Hi, I'm using Archlinux and Radeon HD 6520G. Had to switch to Catalyst driver, because with Radeon the laptop just switched off after some time because of overheating...

      Now, there's 3.7.8 kernel. Do you thing it's ready to get back to open-source drivers?

        No not yet. it still doesnt have proper power management. You can change the power profile, but that is a static change... It might be a while before proper power management is implemented. I don't expect to see it before the 3.9 or 3.10 kernel....
