    Is this tool able to change power limit on Radeon 5700 XT?

    In addition about the clocks showing in the top bar, I realized that when I run cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/amdgpu_pm_info I get
    GFX Clocks and Power:
    42949672 MHz (MCLK)
    42949672 MHz (SCLK)
    300 MHz (PSTATE_SCLK)
    150 MHz (PSTATE_MCLK)
    1050 mV (VDDGFX)
    43.182 W (average GPU)

    42949672 is actually the value of the hex amdgpu.ppfeaturemask=0xffffffff
    Does this indicate what's probably wrong?

    2. It could be due to a few things. For me settings have to be reapplied after resuming from suspend (mainly fan profiles and power limit). I also used to have problems with the daemon just stopping after a few hours up time; this I fixed by going into the Configuration tab and in the Daemon section pick the #1 option (confirm on daemon's request).

    3. No idea, but maybe it's due to the drivers you are using. I think radeon-profile only works with the mesa drivers. You could also try installing radeon-profile with the ppas (there are stable and git channels).
    1. I have tried amdgpu.ppfeaturemask=0xffffffff in grub, but it never worked for me. I also tried it with modprobe, but still tables are disabled.
    2. I chose pick the #1, but it didn't work. Actually I think I have found the cause of the fan control problem. If the GPU hits 70 C then a crazy behaviour starts, where I have no control at all on fan speed. In addition, the fun speed goes periodically ( ~1 second) 28% 43% 28% 43%. If you see the graph it's something like square pulse. This is kind of dangerous as the fan cannot control the gpu temperature. Desmg gives "manual fan speed control should be enabled first" each time I try to change the fan speed in radeon-profile fan control tab.
    3. I use amdgpu-pro, so it could be that radeon-profile generally is not combatible with amdgpu-pro drivers.

    Hi, I really like the Radeon Profile application!!
    I have a couple of problems using it, if anyone can help, it would be great, I haven't found any answers so far:
    1. In Overclock, the States table tab is always greyed out/disabled. Someone has mentioned it in this discussion but no answer yet. I run the daemon fro, the sudoers file with root permission. I have tried anything I found in the web with no success.
    2. Somehow all custom settings are omitted after some time, it could be half an hour or so. For example the fan control curve is not followed. The same with percent overclock. They start at my settings and after a while the card follows some other settings, but definitely not mine.
    3. The clock values appear wrong, I get constantly the value 4.29494e+7MHz!
    I have installed amdgpu-pro drivers v20.20 on ubuntu 18.04.5 HWE with kernel 5.4.0-54.
    The Radeon Profile version is 20200824

    Oh sorry. So why is it still in the app? very confusing.

    btw: Is there any guide for undervolting? I'm not a gamer, I just want it to run 4k movies fluently

    I can't choose any DPM profile. it will always stay at "performance".
    [amdgpu.dpm=1 amdgpu.ppfeaturemask=0xffffffff] is in my kernel line.
    any idea?

    no edit function here?
    just wanted to add my card: SAPPHIRE PULSE Radeon RX 550 4GB GDDR5

    Having issues with the latest download from github. Builds fine but it no longer sees my card. Running it with root works. I then tried running the daemon manually. No errors except:
    Code:
    "radeon-profile-daemon (v. 20190603)"
    Awaiting connections...
    Tried building the daemon again and re-enabling the systemd service but noting. The daemon is running, just not connecting it seems.

    Edit:
    Never mind. Brain fart. Just needed to remove and install the service again.
