Default Re: [270.18] Overclocking is _still_ broken for 8xxx (probably 9xxx too) class GPUs

How can a reverse enginered driver provide functionality that the proprietary one doesn't?
You're confusing reclocking and overclocking. Overclocking is changing the frequencies from those the card was programmed with (they're set in the vbios). Reclocking is switching between the programmed frequencies. To use the marketing term, reclocking = PowerMizer. That commit means nouveau is receiving first code to eventually support PowerMizer. But I'm very sure it doesn't support overclocking.
