19:34 Manoa: hey nice sensors in 5.5.3 :)
19:34 Manoa: does this mean thare is now DPM in GK110B since 5.5.3 ?!
19:34 imirkin_: there is no dpm
19:34 imirkin_: you can, however, manually switch pstates
19:35 Manoa: thank :) I like the new sensors still :)
19:35 imirkin_: not sure what's new in 5.5 wrt sensors
19:35 imirkin_: perhaps you're comparing to a very very old kernel? dunno
19:35 Manoa: I diden't updated kerenal in 2.5 years xD
19:35 imirkin_: maybe we added the current stuff in that timeframe?
19:38 Manoa: one other thing, I noticed the nouveau interface version 1.3.1, is still the same since 4.11 ? I guess that is normal ?
19:39 imirkin_: yeah, it's fairly meaningless.
19:39 imirkin_: it refers to the UAPI, which ~never hcanges
19:39 imirkin_: last big addition was in 4.3
21:39 Manoa: in the dri/pstate control it lists several modes, like for example 0f: 600-1215, 7000, do I need NvBoost 1/2 and/or NvMemExec ?
21:40 imirkin_: whiel you don't *need* NvBoost, enabling it will give you access to higher core/memory frequencies iirc
21:40 imirkin_: i think NvBoost=1 is considered safe
21:40 Manoa: I understand, now I know whay the card temperatures was low xD
21:40 imirkin_: NvMemExec is a setting only to be used for debugging
21:40 imirkin_: well, even without boost, setting it to 0f gets you pretty high freqs
21:40 imirkin_: just not as high as you would get with boost
21:41 Manoa: yhe it huge diffrence :)
21:41 Manoa: I think my card is 900 mhz on 0f and up to 1215 so yhe very significant
21:41 imirkin_: well, the 1215 might not actually be achievable
21:41 imirkin_: even with boost=1
21:42 imirkin_: i think boost=2 disables all the checks
21:42 imirkin_: but then you gotta watch the temp carefully
21:42 imirkin_: since we don't throttle down
21:42 Manoa: yhe I need to do some testing :) it's water cooled :)
21:43 Manoa: I will do script to clock to 0f when starting game, and then back to AC when quit the game :)
21:43 imirkin_: AC is just the current settings
21:43 imirkin_: probably 07 or whatever?
21:43 Manoa: yhe, yhe :)
21:43 imirkin_: some people added hotkeys to do it
21:44 imirkin_: obv needs to run as root, so a little sensitive :)
21:45 Manoa: I think this manual method is more bether than DPM becuase it probably give less stutter xD not that I don't believe you can't make DPM work good :) but the true is in nvidia on windows it reclocked auto without any stutter...so I guess dpm could work good
21:46 Manoa: it just didn't reclocked to waild diffrences when RTSS was on, it was 1100-1200 not 600-1200 or such
21:49 Manoa: is NvBoost available from debugfs or only from kerenal command line ?
21:51 Manoa: what is clockgating ?
21:51 Lyude: power saving
21:51 Manoa: grate :) I probably should turn it on
21:51 Lyude: or one of the levels of it, it basically lets you tell the hardware to automatically stop sending clock signals to certain hardware blocks when they're not being used
21:53 imirkin_: kernel cmdline only
21:54 imirkin_: (well, module parameter string only)
