    well if you own an Radeon 777X Cape Verde XT i confirm it reclock perfectly fine now and i tested xonotic and went from 30FPS before DPM to a massive 190FPS using ultimate settings at 1366x768[all forms of vsync deactivated ofc]

    i can't stop thanking alex for this awesome job

    Default Amazing

    This is amazing!
    The open source AMD drivers are shaping up!
    I can't wait until they rival the proprietary drivers.

    Then why not make a donation towards that goal:

    To clarify, not only will I match your donation, but I will also make one my self. The least you could do is respond with why you do not want to donate.

    I don't want to donate there, because I "donate" every single time I buy AMD hardware.

    Will the Radeon DPM support be made default by the time Linux 3.11 is given its final release or will that have to wait until a later Kernel version?

    Your HD 7770 works really well now? I thought the performance on Southern Islands was still much slower than previous generations and unrelated to the DPM.

    SI asics come up with really low clocks by default similar to APUs so while there are still a number of 3D optimizations we still have to port from r600g to radeonsi, at least with DPM, the production clocks are enabled.

    I don't think I said "rock solid", but it should work pretty well for the majority of systems
