  • I forked SteamOS for my living room PC
    > I only want some decent fan control instead of relying on random scripts off github. AMD has to release some sort of GUI panel for sure. Have you tried CoreCtrl [0]? > My 5800x3D and 6800XT deliver an outstanding Linux gaming experience. I have a 7900XTX and performance under Linux has been at least on par with Windows, sometimes better (though not by much). > May I ask what driver features are you missing? I'm... - Source: Hacker News / 6 months ago
  • AMD's 7900 XTX achieves better value for Stable Diffusion than Nvidia RTX 4080
    > The AMD experience on Linux is vastly better than the Nvidia one. I just wish we had an equivalent of AMD Software on Linux, so I could mess around with the settings more. For example, I like to limit the GPU to 50-75% of it's total power for ambient heat/cooling reasons, or UPS/PSU/electricity bill reasons when specific games make it hard to cap framerates. With AMD Software on Windows, it's no big deal. On... - Source: Hacker News / 10 months ago
  • AMD really need to fix this. (7900 XTX vs 4080 power consumption)
    If you set it to POWER_SAVING instead of 3D_FULL_SCREEN, it uses the highest boost clock a lot less. Or if you use something like corectrl's application profiles (maybe the Windows vendor driver control panel has them?), you can selectively disable boost clock states in specific games.

  • Motherboard for Gamers
    I'm bias toward Asus motherboards. I have an "Asus TUF GAMING B550-PLUS WIFI II" and a "Asus ROG Crosshair VIII Hero (WI-FI) ATX". Both boards have a fan control feature in the BIOS/EFI. On the Windows side both boards come with Ai Suite 3 software. On the Linux side you might want to take a look at Corectrl ==> Source: 11 months ago
  • Where/how can I get Radeon Adrenaline software for Linux
    I think CoreCtrl might offer some of what you're looking for. Source: 12 months ago
  • How do I change my CPU clock speed?
    I use core control to mange a temperamental amd CPU/RAM combo (also disables iGPU). I had to add a amd boot flag using kernelstub to be able to set modes on the CPU. Source: 12 months ago
  • GPU software?
    Moving on, Corectrl is currently maintained where as Radeon-profile hasn't been maintained for at least 2 years. (obviously I chose Corectrl) So read page to the very end before installing Follow the Ubuntu instructions, and as advised, best to create the file /etc/apt/preferences.d/corectrl so that you install Corectrl Application only. Then follow the Setup instructions... Source: about 1 year ago
  • It's peak UX.
    Give corectrl a look, I use it to oc my 6900XT and set curves. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Is there a way to make GPU OC/ UV settings gas persistent between OSes?
    CoreCtrl is the best bet on AMD GPUs nowadays. You need to follow the instructions on the Wiki to activate all the controls, and you will have it, overclock, undervolt, power draw, fan curves, and depending on which GPU even control over each power state (one by one). Source: about 1 year ago
  • Multi Monitor on RX 7000 series
    I have overclocked/undervolted my previous 5700 XT on Fedora using CoreCtrl which is more or less open-source AMD Adrenaline and handles the CPU as well. It does currently need some updates to fully support RDNA3 however. It currently shows all info, but settings can't be changed. AMD apparently locked the firmware down, so needs work done on the driver upstream. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Arch AMD drivers
    AMD doesn't include any special software on Linux, it's just the driver. If you want the ability to see temps, overclock, and control the fan speed of your Radeon GPU, I recommend CoreCTL Source: about 1 year ago
  • New to Linux, need 101 help in undervolting
    If you want some control of your GPU, try Corectrl. So read page to the very end before installing Follow the Ubuntu instructions, and as advised, best to create the file /etc/apt/preferences.d/corectrl so that you install Corectrl Application only. Then follow the Setup instructions below, to this page, and follow instructions. Source: about 1 year ago
  • When switching to Linux, what were some programs that you had to stop using because they weren't supported on Linux?
    Give CoreCtrl a try for fan speed / power profile management, and if you need in-game temperature/FPS/metrics HUD, MangoHUD should do you well. Source: about 1 year ago
  • When switching to Linux, what were some programs that you had to stop using because they weren't supported on Linux?
    Not sure if it'll meet your needs, but have you looked into CoreCtrl? I've been pretty happy with it for managing my fans and power consumption modes. Source: about 1 year ago
  • Gaming mode and more for Linux
    Need better ways to do it, we can try this post or corectrl. Source: about 1 year ago
  • I find it hard to justify going for an AMD GPU again
    Use CoreCtrl to drive your GPU. I recommend you to create specific profiles for certain games by touching fans, frequencies and voltages. Read the CoreCtrl wiki. Source: over 1 year ago
  • Is smart access memory active by default? Or do I have to specify RADV_PERFTEST=sam
    Your best friend for AMD on Linux is CoreCtrl: Make sure to follow the full setup guide to get all features: Source: over 1 year ago
  • Newly installed Pop os now someone provide me steps to install game
    For an ubuntu based system, which is what pop os is, youve got to add the repository for it. Dont worry its super simple, simply create a file and copy paste stuff into it. Instructions are here Source: over 1 year ago
  • Not able to decide between Pop os and Cachyos
    FSR in games that have it built-in will work, as it doesn't rely on any external software. It's, basically, a fancy shared. To use in games that don't have it, you can use Gamescope. If you want to play around with frequencies and whatnot you can use CoreCtrl. As for "Anti-lag"... I don't know what exactly it does and whether what it does can even be applied to Linux. But it does sound kind of similar to... Source: over 1 year ago
  • Will there eventually be a Control Center on Linux?
    This small app let you do that, Source: over 1 year ago
  • Virtual Super Resolution with AMD card possible?
    Also, if you want to undervolt the GPU, corectrl is your best friend if you are using an AMD GPU and CPU. Source: over 1 year ago
