    Phoronix: GreenWithEnvy 0.11 Released For More Overclocking Potential Of NVIDIA GPUs On Linux

    GreenWithEnvy v0.11 has been released, the latest version of this third-party, open-source utility for altering the power limits of NVIDIA graphics cards on Linux as well as more overclocking information/controls than what is exposed through the NVIDIA Settings panel with the NVIDIA proprietary driver...

    If you're looking to save power, the nvidia driver allows you to set a power limit for your card. Look at the documentation for nvidia-smi. The "-pl" command will allow you to set a power limit.
    Code:
    nvidia-smi -pl ###
    Where ### is the max wattage you want the card to draw.

    Maybe factor it into a generic library, which could be used by a GNOME/KDE/etc. panel, one which carefully warns people against overvolting and overclocking their cards unless they recognize the warranty impact.

    Nope, no real voltage control is not satisfying at all.
    That is a limitation by the Nvidia driver on Pascal and newer cards. You simply can't change the voltage on those cards under Linux. I have no idea why Nvidia removed this ability, as it is still possible on Windows with the same cards. GWE doesn't change anything on that.

    Can this be used with old nVidia cards?
    It does appear that it could also be useful for gamers as well(If you watch Linus Tech Tips, you know that they love to overclock)..
    Now all we need is CPU overclocking tools(it seems like there are/were some overclock tools, but they were all terminal-based, didn't work well, and haven't been supported for years)

    That UI looks great. It can compete (and perhaps even do better) with the official control panel!

    (the official panel looks a little dated)
