RX 6800 BIOS / PowerTable dump wanted

,

Hi there.

Can anyone who uses RX 6800 on Linux share power-play tables dump please?

I’m working on this small tool for tweaking Radeon PowerPlay tables (sibradzic/upp @ GitHub), that is primarily aimed at Linux users (it should work in Windows as well). I am working on adding RX6000 series support, but I am lacking a video BIOS for any such card to actually test the code I am about to add to the repository…

What I need is either a full vBIOS dump or copy of pp_table:

cat /sys/class/drm/card0/device/pp_table > /tmp/pp_table

Much obliged!

Here we go :wink:

pp_table.zip (950 Bytes)

Don’t have much time r8t now but can add the vbios if needed!

Thanks a bunch @modzilla ! Early support for RX6800/XT was added some minutes ago: https://github.com/sibradzic/upp

BTW, which card is this, non-XT RX 6800? I’m curios, because PowerPlay table you provided suggest that TDC is limited to 200W…

I’d appreciate a full vBIOS dump when you have a moment (AFAIK dumping full vBIOS would only work in Windows)…

That’s great! I didn’t find a version that would work on windows to save my vbios, only https://github.com/patrickschur/amdvbflash worked on linux.

EDIT: I do have the 6800 non XT

Cool, thanks!

I could extract the identical pp_table from the dump you provided (renamed your file to /tmp/AMD_RX6800_reference.rom):

python3 -m upp.upp -p /tmp/AMD_RX6800_reference.rom.pp_table extract -r /tmp/AMD_RX6800_reference.rom

I wonder if modifying 6800’s pp_table would actually reflect in amdgpu? Can you do a little test and try changing something simple like smc_pptable/FanStartTemp ?

I am willing to dump my 6800 XT bios. As a new user I cannot upload here though, if that is helpful.

Feel free to post it on any file sharing service, just hint what the link may look like, I guess I could figure it out…

Just zip the file up;)
