    I assume you are talking about dpm. It was enabled by default on cayman GPU a while ago, but was disabled due to stability issues. The root cause was found and fixed in 3.16, so now I'm enabling dpm by default again in 3.17.

    Default What cards don't have DPM enabled yet?

    Is it just the old r600 level gpus now?

    Just use linux-git and change the first source line from
    Code:
    source=('git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git'
    to
    Code:
    source=('git://people.freedesktop.org/~agd5f/linux#branch=drm-next-3.17'
    Then makepkg, hit enter a few times to accept new default config, ready.

    Yes, just the r6xx-based asics.
