Hi,

I am using an PowerColor HD 5450 GoGreen in my linux box.
Start values were:
MinGPUFreq: 157Mhz / 0.9V
MidGPUFreq: 400Mhz / 0.9V
MaxGPUFreq: 650Mhz / 0.95V

So edited the voltages and frequencies to
MinGPUFreq: 150Mhz / 0.8V
MidGPUFreq: 300Mhz / 0.9V
MaxGPUFreq: 400Mhz / 0.9V


In Windows GPU-Z is showing now the edited values, HWMon and every other program on windows shows them, too.

The Linux box doesnt, it shows still the original values.
# cat /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/radeon_pm_info
default engine clock: 650000 kHz
current engine clock: 156990 kHz
default memory clock: 400000 kHz
current memory clock: 199960 kHz
voltage: 900 mV
PCIE lanes: 16

Any ideas why that happens?

Linux sucking? It happens, join Windows 7. GPU-Z reads correctly again. :D

So, RBE is only editing some "viewable" entries which are asked by GPU-Z instead of modifying voltages by real? Or how shall I understand your responses?
