Phenom II Support

Post by erpalma » Thu 19. Nov 2009, 19:35

Is there any way to support new Phenom II cpu? I'm going to buy a 945 (Deneb core).

I will be working on an alpha driver that supports this, after I released an update to the current phc-k8 driver. Initially you will only be able to write to phc_vids, it won't have full phc support at first.

After that I will have to completely rewrite the current phc-k8 driver and I'm planning (in time) to add support for:
- Suspend/resume without loosing your settings
- Full phc support, read/write to phc_controls
- Allow to choose "any" frequency for your power states, e.g. instead of just 2000MHz, 1000MHz and 500MHz, allow for 1800MHz and 250MHz as well.
- Enabling all 8 power states, not just the ones that are enabled by default.
- Black Edition support
- Allow undervolting the northbridge.
- Making sure the processor won't fry when it overheats, the pstate that it jumps to on overheating should be safe to use.

Great, if you need testing I'll do. The Phenom will go to my server so stability is important but energy efficency is important too!

What is the status of Phenom II support in the phc-k8 driver? This thread is starting to get a bit old.

I'm sorry, but I haven't really had any time to spend on this.

Actually I'm still struggling with the newer Phenom Dynamic Speed boost features, I have to sort these out first. Also, since my Acer notebook has been away for repair (and now again), I do not have a proper testing platform. (But for the Dynamic Speed boost I don't have a testing platform at all.)

See topic "Test-releases" in the Download section for an alpha version driver ;)

There's a newer, working version...

The previous upload missed a vital call and therefore it only worked on CPU0 and only after suspend/resume. I tried to select only lines from my work-in-progress that were ready for upload, but apparently I overlooked one line.

Here are some first results of hw_pstate_ctrl from an AMD Phenom II X6 1075T, 6x 3.00GHz, TurboCore 3,50GHz.
These were gathered through a running VMware ESX server, so it only shows one core. I hope I'll get full results in a few days.

hw_pstate_ctrl output of an AMD Phenom II X6 1090T processor

Post by davidxy01 » Sun 20. Feb 2011, 15:33

I can contribute with the hw_pstate_ctrl output on an AMD Phenom II X6 1090T processor including all 6 cores running Ubuntu 10.10.

Thanks for running the script! This really supports my findings until now, I already got the output of the Phenom 1055T with similar results.
Unfortunately the current version of the script is unaware of the boosted pstate, so the first PState displayed should actually be the Core Performance Boost PState, and the lowest PState is not being displayed at the moment. (However, the Python interpreter seems to have some peculiar issues reading the last PState for CPUs with CPB, so the script fails anyway. I'll need to fix that.)
But I think I know enough to add support for CPB Phenoms as well. Thanks!
