Nouveau DRM Wires In Pascal Temperature Sensor Support

Written by Michael Larabel in Nouveau on 6 September 2017 at 06:03 AM EDT. 4 Comments
Landing in the Nouveau DRM tree this week is initial support for the GP100 temperature sensor used by newer NVIDIA Pascal graphics cards.

There still isn't yet any re-clocking support for the Pascal hardware so the temperature sensor isn't too useful at the moment, but will be in the future if/when that re-clocking support becomes available.

The GP1xx temperature sensor support is now housed in Nouveau DRM. It's too late for getting into DRM-Next for Linux 4.14, so should become a feature to be found with Linux 4.15.

Temperature sensor support has already been working in Nouveau for pre-Pascal GPUs.
