Linux/AMDgpu good news:

Seems Kernel 5.12.14 has cured the issue of the GPU running at 100% all the time. (Zen tested, likely every variant, though). Batteries in all laptops heave a sigh of relief.

FYI, Happy Gaming, may the luck of the Seven Pillars of Gulu be with you at all times.


Mine never ran at 100%, you mean it will powersave without ppfeaturemask?

Nope - there was a bug that would push the GPU clocks to 100%, making the card gobble energy. I don't think it effected all AMD cards, by my Vega 56 and RX 5600M were effected. It showed up in 5.12.13

I'm starting to think that 5000 series have woes on Linux, well in Windows too
