Getting more details from AMD GPU with sensors

Post by hypewolf » Thu Aug 16, 2018 12:35 am


I am trying to get my GPU frequency for conky and I found a pseudo-file in /sys/kernel/debug.../amdgpu_pm_info but obviously it wouldn't be wise to change this file's permission.

That file give's me current vram status, frequency, etc and is very useful.

I was wondering how safe it was to ask sensors-detect to scan the AMD GPU entries that it found ad if it would give me the informations I want. Here is the output of sensors-detect: (Since the output is long I didn't want to spam the thread.

Currently I only have amdgpu-pci-0900 showing in psensor with k10temp-pci-00c3 for the CPU.

Thanks for your input, community!
