Default Re: Nvidia 6200 and ATI RS480/482 chipset incompatibilities

Implementing the potential to slow down the clock speed and save the setting so the clock speed persistently lowers courtesy of the "NVIDIA X Server Settings" application would be nice. Automatic throttling at a temperature the USER specifies, with a fallback for the max. temperature the card can take would also be nice for power users wanting maximum performance from their card. So would GPU fan speed controls.

Why these features have not been added I have no idea.

"By allowing the graphics processing unit (GPU) to share the capacity and bandwidth of dedicated video memory and dynamically available system memory, TurboCache turbocharges performance and provides larger total graphics memory."

The problem is probably less to do with the chipset specifically and more to do with system memory usage since TurboCache technology uses system memory to speed up performance in games and stressful 3D operations. Since all kernel modules on Linux/BSD effectively gain a form of superuser privilege; unlike on Windows. One wrong move and the kernel panics.
