    Users of some pre-Fermi NVIDIA graphics cards can be thankful to Roy Spliet for managing some re-clocking related improvements to the Nouveau driver...

    To clarify: these patches are applicable not only for NVA3, but also NVA5 and NVA8. I've tested them on G210m, GT220 and GT320, but to learn about all the cards this covers check out the codenames page on the Nouveau wiki.

      Does the 9600M GT have reclocking by default?

          Oh, I have a GT220, it is finally happening?

          Not that I really care, as I don't game (obviously, otherwise I would just get a better gpu), but it's still quite amazing.

            Sure?

            Excuse me but are you SURE about reclocking support for the GT 240? I got one, and Until now, Nouveau didnt even support the graphics cards, AT ALL, so I wonder how can there be now reclocking support for an unsupported graphics cards? If this is really true, I will immidiately switch to Fedora Rawhide.

              only kernel 3.18 will support this for your card you will to wait more than 2 months to have some "rc" version to use

                You must be one of the unlucky few with a GDDR5 nvaX. Roy and Ilia are working on making them work at all before Roy focuses on reclocking support for them!

                Right now, DDR2, DDR3 and GDDR3 are targeted.
