    Doesn't make sense for me as portuguese speaker, as we say "from Y to X", where Y is the initial value/position and X is new value/destination
    As a native English speaker, I almost always use "from X to Y", which is the same as your preferred method.

    "To Y from X" makes sense, but it's definitely awkward to use and takes a little more mental effort for me to parse.

        The AMD wip kernel does not have that: https://cgit.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/...t-5.2-wip#n644
        Regular 5.0 didn't have it either, until it was disabled. I'm asking whether it's still planned for 5.1 or not.

          Not only does the current amd-staging-drm-next head still crash quickly when performing the "3 fps video replay test", it also fails to allow setting the shader clock manually, keeping it at an unreasonable second-highest of its 6 different levels. So no progress in sight for me, just more regressions.

            I have read that windows driver even disables the gpu fan. Windows destroys your hardware.

              The AMD wip kernel has so many new patches for many cards that the mainline kernel is not interesting and your problem is fixed in:

                You mean the semi-passive fan control that is a feature of many modern graphics cards? That's not just Windows by the way, mine does that on Debian as well.

                  I have burned a passive cooled Msi nv 8400 G card and Msi motherboard with the 3.0Ghz overclocked Pentium
                  E2160 CPU. Never again passive cooled GPU cards or Msi products for me. Power hog chips like Fury need constant airflow definitely. No wonder Sapphire products have 2 year warranty here, f.ex the Sapphire RX Vega 64 NITRO+ card . Asus have 3 years for the Asus Radeon RX Vega 64 ROG STRIX GAMING OC card. The Sapphire card is just 30 euros cheaper, 469 euros.

                    And how would broken fan control be connected to wrong reported GPU power? Totally different topic, I'd say.
                    Needless to say that ZeroFan should work on Linux as well, at least it did so for an Asus Vega card I had briefly installed. It's probably just another notorious Polaris Linux issue, among others.

                    But I don't care anyway, as I use a custom fan curve without ZF on any OS.

                      Linux is not windows. AMD Linux driver developers know what is good for us. My Asus RX560 and RX570 card packages does not have any mention of ZeroFan. Non-stop durability, 144-hour testing and non-stop gaming is mentioned. 30W and 1000 rpm idle values are fine for Polaris in Linux.
