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...
The patches are already in drm-radeon-testing, so no need to apply them manually to your tree.
Those developers are robots. The rate of progression is stunning.
this is just awesome.
btw, how is dynamic volting coming along?
is this for Evergreen, r800?
Read the change/git log.

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.
