The Radeon updates for the Linux 3.11 kernel are very exciting as the GPU clock speeds and voltages can dynamically adjust based upon load. This leads to power-savings when idling, especially for battery-backed systems, and also to greater performance on newer hardware by being able to up-clock the GPU from its boot speeds. Read More...
