Fglrx and PowerPlay

with 14 comments

I guess I’ve found why glxgears have so low fps with fglrx. It’s because of PowerPlay.

Even when laptop is on AC power, it show me only 400+ and fps goes higher when I scroll something in Firefox =) (that’s strange)

I have turned off PowerPlay in Catalist Control Center and it gave me 4k-5k fps.

Another what I’ve found is that cpu is much cooler with fglrx (even with PowerPlay turned off) then with radeonhd. Seems radeonhd eats more cpu. I was thinking it is because of cpufreqd, but was wrong.
