For those staying in tune with the status of Roderick Colenbrander's NVClock in regards to the GeForce 7 support, and more specifically the NVIDIA 7900GT, we have a few more details to share today. Roderick has alerted us that there has been improvements to the 7900GT BIOS parsing and other minor improvements to his personal development tree, and these changes should merge into the NVClock SourceForge CVS server later this week (hopefully). There are, however, a few small issues that are still being worked on when it comes to the 7900GT recognition. The NVClock development tree also now contains fixes for the NVIDIA GPU temperature sensor. As the GeForce 7900GT sensor is different than its predecessors (as it uses different correction values and this part of the BIOS -- according to Roderick), NVClock has yet to fully integrated its support. Below is the debugging output (specifically: NV_15B0/NV_15B4/NV_15B8) of the 7900GT at various temperatures reported by the nvidia-settings utility. Stay tuned to the NVClock CVS server for the code and will forward along different information at Phoronix.
