Sabby, there is a way to overcome the speed core on my 5850?
Actually it is 775MHz, and is very frustating
On win i can easily reach 900..
First of all, let me thank you for your great tool which is very useful to us.
I am part of the biggest french speaking team (ie: L'Alliance Francophone) on BOINC (OpenSource software for volunteer grid computing to participate into the science research! Btw, I recommend you to participate if you have spare CPU cycle to give) and the Gnu/Linux’s members of the team (called Mini team Libristes) are more than thankful for your software!
As we can use our graphic cards to compute complex calculations, having the ability to OC and to check the temp in an easy manner on our preferred system is excellent!
We would like to promote the GPU calculation on GNU/Linux meanwhile your tool.
Hence, to be able to release an archive containing some libs and your tool, we would like to know which license you use and then, if it was possible to create such an archive with your software, the whole, hosted on our server to share it with our community?
Thank you for your answer.
Best wish from [AF>Libristes] Dudumomo
I thought there was a non commercial clause in the SDK but there wasn't so it would just have to be the SDK license clause.
Okay I see, thank you for your reply.
I'm going to read the licence and see if there isn't any problem to do a package for our community.
I'll let you know.
At first I want to say a big thanks for this tiny but very helpful tool.
I'm using v1.0.5 to underclock my HD 4870 on my Ubuntu 10.04 32bit pc, which works flawlessly with the catalyst drivers (release 10-12).
I set the card always to the lowest values given by the tool. In my case (GPU:250Mhz Memory:450Mhz Voltage:1237mV).
After reading the entire post it seems like some people can go even lower. (about 200/200/1083)
I also would like to go lower if its possible.
But as far as I understand your tool uses the min/max settings given by the bios of the card.
Is there a way to bypass them and set lower values than the min-settings?
Or does it require reflashing my bios with lower min-settings to be able to go lower?
I guess you mean this one:
Tried it but got the same result as with your tool.
Also tried aticonfig, but it gives me just the following error and quits.
I guess that there is no way to get lower without reflashing, so I think I'll just stick with what I got and thats it. Well, with anything on min. I already save up to 25watts. And the temp is also falling from 80°C down to 57°C. Doesn't sound to bad.Code:alex@alex-desktop:~$ aticonfig --adapter=0 --od-setclocks=250,400 ERROR - Set clocks failed for Adapter 0 - ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series Please check that input values were valid alex@alex-desktop:~$
Anyway thanks for your quick reply.
Hi there sabby.
I would like to suggest a small change for your tool.
I'm using it now with autostart and "Reload OverDrive settings on startup" to get the frequencies set automatically at startup.
However it would be nice if the program would start already minimized to the panel without the need to close the window after every startup.
Its just a small change and if you could add it in your next release that would be nice.
