    AFAIK support for Hawaii (R9 290/290X) was enabled a couple of months ago. You need a 3.14-family kernel to get the latest DPM fixes and have DPM enabled by default. What it probably doesn't have yet is much user testing since the support is pretty recent -- most of the code paths are the same as Bonaire (7790, 260X) but there could be Hawaii-specific bugs.

    EDIT - just checked mesa logs, looks like most of the Hawaii-specific activity in radeonsi was in the last couple of weeks of November.

      No, it doesn't.
