    Carrizo is already supported in amdgpu. In fact it's where most of our development has been focused.
    Does Carrizo support include DPM? I'm assuming not, since Tonga doesn't have it.

    Sorry, forgot that thread subscription (the new version had it off by default).
    No, it is an AM1 mainboard (Biostar AM1MHP http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en/mb/...?S_ID=696#spec ) with an Athlon 5350 (4x2050). Sadly Biostar is quite lame when it comes to BIOS support. I mean, it works quite fine so far, but probably uses the vulnerable Agesa code (Rudolf Marek at CCC 2014) and Biostar doesn't put updated code online. (Probably it costs them some money to go to AMI or whoever made the BIOS). But it is supposed to be Coreboot compatible (SuperIO is fine, chips supported by flashrom and so on).
    Yeah, changelogs would be nice but that is typical for a lot of these Taiwanese manufacturers not to write anything about it. At least most vendors today use an in-BIOS flash tool, just add some VFAT media with the new image and there you go. No messing with FreeDOS or even W32 required.

    PS: I thought about getting a Lenovo E145 (E1-2100 Kabini, ~11h batterytime, fairly good reviews, matte screen (1366x768 though)) but the keyboard's F1...Fx-keys were strange and I ran out of money and time.

    Any update on Tonga (R9 285) DPM support?

    Whatever the answer, thank you for all the hard work <3

    Yes. The userspace bits (mesa, libdrm, xf86-video-amdgpu) are also available in temporary public repos (see my amdgpu announcement email) awaiting the kernel changes to land. Once the kernel side lands, the userspace stuff can land.

    The questions I was answering were about "future Catalyst versions", ie the hybrid driver (closed source userspace) not the all-open driver. All-open is there today as agd5f said.

    (I wouldn't mind a SuperIO/EC that actually works with Linux / Coreboot... currently there are a lot of them everywhere but the newer generations have no driver and probably use firmware blobs. Though a SuperIO might be a board specific thing, but if one had some that features classic IOs and stuff it should be quite universal unless you need to support batteries and other laptop specific things.)
