    Default ATI Gets Dynamic Power Management & Profiles Too

    Phoronix: ATI Gets Dynamic Power Management & Profiles Too

    For years we have been talking about open-source ATI Radeon power management for their Linux driver and it's finally all coming to fruition. Back in April of 2008 we talked about dynamic clocks coming to R500+ ASICs and various other initiatives to improve the Radeon power management in their DDX driver, but everything got shook up with the migration to their ATI kernel mode-setting driver, which finally now allows for real power management capabilities...

    Here it is, 12 hours ago my most wanted feature was implemented!
    Goodbye fglrx, next time i touch my system you are as good as replaced!
    I would wish AntiAliasing too but right now, it's just enough what I already get.

    There's a gallium-msaa branch, so I assume Anti Aliasing for Gallium drivers is coming soon. And the r600 gallium driver within Glisse's repository is making progress.
