    I'm not sure what you are asking. amdgpu_pm_info has always been in debugfs. The hwmon-compatible freq interfaces are in sysfs just like the existing hwmon interfaces for voltage, power, fan, etc.

      Yep, I meant debugfs.

        Readback. This exactly means it could show up in GUIs for Linux too

        Same thing like Mesa's Gallium HUD could already show:

        GALLIUM_HUD=simple,shader-clock,memory-clock glxgears
        With HWMON interface that could be show in console, or in TUIs, GUIs too, GTK; QT, whatever... and it does not require root rights like debugfs for example or whatever

        It is more universal, say since AMDGPU-PRO blobies does not have HUD, this is useful for these too i guess

          That is not a useful answer to my question.

          HDR does not "slow down fps" in any way at all.
