I am waiting for the linux drivers still mature. You dont get audio via the gpu. It needs patches that arent merged into linux kernel. Meanwhile I fetched gpu and memory speed while being at desktop and the gpu had 2 powersates which were low. But Memory had only 2 options. 300 and 2000mhz. And it was using the higher.

Is this something we can change via bios editing? Adding more memory speeds or more voltage options? 2000mhz memory speed for idle is way too high. That's why it consumes so much power at idle. I really dont understand why the have added only 2 options for memory.

Any news on the reference bios moding?

New drivers are out, 16.7.3, installed them, noticed that the max frequency for memory in Wattman is now only 2050 vs 2200 as before? *** AMD mad.gif
Anybody seen the same thing?

Yep. Same exact thing for me. I created a new thread in the AMD/ATI forum about it.

Hoping there is a registry tweak to change the wattman limit

Well, AMD should do something about the Polaris chips if they want to get back into competition with Nvidia, and what they are doing with the Wattman is definitely the wrong approach.

First: They should allow any modified bios -> when detecting one, display a big window saying "Mod Bios, beware, if you want to use it, you do it at your own risk" -> Agree

Second: They should have a button that allows increasing anything to almost any value -> display a big window saying "Dangerous settings, beware, if you want to use them, you do it at your own risk" -> Agree

Third: They should understand that most AMD buyers dont buy their products because they are the best, but because they use their brains when buying, and that market can kiss or kick them in the behind.

Alternatively, if they are to scared to release a no-limit Wattman to the masses, because the masses might be to ignorant, make a special edition wattman that can turn your Polaris into a frying pan biggrin.gif

I see the potential in Wattman, but at its current state, its just another super useless tool. So, AMD, ready for competition or ready to disappear into the depths of nothingness?

I agree with Felix above me here... Apparently the newest driver reduced the OC potential even further, if one youtube user is to be believed...
