Radeon DPM Support Should Now Be In Good Shape
The dynamic power management support for the open-source AMD Radeon graphics driver on Linux should now be in good shape.
AMD's Alex Deucher sent in another round of bug-fixes for the "DPM" support to be applied to the Linux 3.11 kernel. After already sending in several round of bug-fixes for this new 3.11 kernel feature, Deucher notes in the new pull request that for most GPUs the support should be "rock solid."
Alex says, "A few more radeon bug fixes, mostly for SI dpm. At this point dpm is pretty solid across the majority of asics. I think we mostly just have corner cases and fixing up some of the trickier features at this point."
Now hearing the support is in good shape, more Radeon DPM Linux benchmarks will come to complement the earlier Radeon DPM preview benchmarks.
