    Thanks, but I couldn't make it to work. It won't load the freshly compiled 3D driver for whatever reason >_<

    Next time I may have more luck.

    Is it/will it be possible somehow for the application to request a graphics mode without vsync?

    My FirePro v8750 still shits 60 Watt more power in Linux desktop than in Win 7 desktop. Remind you that this card doesn't even clock down in idle (designed as such). So I guess clock gating / power gating must not working at all under Linux

    As has been stated before, see this message for more on the current pm state:

    You'll need to either enable dynpm mode or manually select a power state.

    I am currently running Ubuntu 10.04 with stock kernel 2.6.34.

    Which kernel version has your mentioned functionality? It would be nice to test it out.

    I can't seem to find power_method in my sysfs directory.
    Any idea what could be the reason?

    Code:
    Linux speedy 2.6.35-rc5 #1 PREEMPT Wed Jul 21 03:19:27 CEST 2010 i686 AMD Athlon(TM) XP 1700+ AuthenticAMD GNU/Linux
    
    CONFIG_DRM_RADEON=m
    CONFIG_DRM_RADEON_KMS=y
    CONFIG_FB_RADEON=m
    CONFIG_FB_RADEON_I2C=y
    CONFIG_FB_RADEON_BACKLIGHT=y
    # CONFIG_FB_RADEON_DEBUG is not set

    Yes:

    Code:
    speedy device # ls
    boot_vga              consistent_dma_mask_bits  enable         modalias  rescan     resource0_wc  subsystem         vendor
    broken_parity_status  device                    irq            msi_bus   reset      resource1     subsystem_device
    class                 dma_mask_bits             local_cpulist  power     resource   resource2     subsystem_vendor
    config                drm                       local_cpus     remove    resource0  rom           uevent
    speedy device # pwd
    /sys/class/drm/card0/device
    In power subdirectory there's only a file called wakeup.
