Linux kernel 3.11 features

Postby pam » Fri Aug 30, 2013 12:33 am

The linux kernel brings in a lot of changes in every faction of graphical compute. Intel has zeroed in on 3.13 for a major overhaul of implementing new technologies for an 'APU' like experience with OpenCL.

The latest major update in 3.11 is AMD radeon DPM. This basically reduces power consumption and heat of the card. To say the least it does the job of a proprietary driver-- which controls the clock speeds by implementing a governor, to lower it on low loads or when idling at the same time boosting performance levels across the spectrum. To be noted, AMD supports this open source code apart from making its own proprietary driver.
