Intel ARC Alchemist GPU Power Limit/ Clock Speed and Fan Speed Configuration

Hello,

I do use Linux as a Power User from Windows since this year now and solved some Problems to run my OpenCl Programms over the new Intel ARC Alchemist GPUś with my own research over the time.

So long, so good.

But as a Windows User i did love the possibility to manage the Hardware Details with some Programms myself. Here we see mostly GPU Power Limits, Clock Speeds and Fan Speeds. With my work, i do need these Settings to optimizie all Parameters of my work in the way nearly to perfektion.

But i do not find out over the time, how i can do this all in Linux, here my lovely Distro is Garuda proofed over the time as the best ones for me, becouse all this little Details i do not have to know are inbuild. That is insane and the right way in my point of view.

Maybe there is a way to understand how i can manage the settings on my Intel Grafikcards, but i did not find anything helpfull in now more than 10 Month of research.

Is anybody out there who can build a little tool for us Dummies?

I am ready to spend this guy 100 Dollar for his work as a gift and thanks for the Work if it is done. Also i would write about that to share this in the world for all the other ones who want to manage their New Intel GPU under Linux (Arch/Garuda).

Thank you very much and feel free to ask me anything you would know.

Greetings and i hope we see us in other parts of this forum too, becouse i like this here to see.

Welcome :slight_smile:

Nevertheless, even if you want to pay, it would be helpful if you post the garuda-inxi required by the template.

I hope that is what you need. I also have another Computer with three ARC Cards too, if you need this informations too that is no Problem for me. Thank you
