Having RC6 enabled while running Nexuiz also led to an increase in power consumption by 20%. The other options (frame-buffer compression, LVDS down-clocking, and PCI-E ASPM) were of no benefit for this more demanding OpenGL Linux benchmark.
Enabling RC6 had boosted the performance for the Nexuiz test profile, for this test by 21%.
If you have any other Linux power tweaks you do manually (besides running PowerTop), be sure to share them with other Phoronix readers within our forums.
