I'll be damned, I forgot all about amdcccle (I'd set the "refresh" option to fix the flicker, and it didn't do it, but I figured it eventually would.) Ok, now I can get 3300 fps on glxgears for whatever good that does...
...Since I really only care about video I'm still screwed. Thanks for the tip though! I feel like we're on the verge of a breakthrough.
(Off the record I also felt that way in January... December... November...)
I'm not sure yet, but I will find out. I put Windows on this laptop again but I'm having trouble getting a temperature reading at all. What's the most reliable way to get a GPU temperature reading under Windows?
ATI control center or whatever's the name of the application. There is temperature monitoring somewhere, at least for my X1950Pro.
Hi! Any progress on this? I just got myself a used HP NC8430 notebook with Mobility X1600 (my first laptop with a "proper" GPU) and it is heating a bit outside windows or linux's fglrx (=text console mode, installations, live environments etc.)
I tried both radeontool (with modifications, I even added some of my own with the help of ATI's pdf document) and rovclock, but I haven't reached CCC/fglrx power state 1 temperatures. I don't know much about programming (just enough to modify somebody other's code) but I was thinking that if you could dump all the registers in two (or more) different power states and compare the changes, wouldn't you be able to "reverse engineer" the same for these tools? I think there is more than just changing some registers, with Glisse's atomtools I could set the core/mem clocks to the power state 1 equivalent frequencies, but the cooling was not sufficient so there must be more to it.
