CoreCtrl – Unlock the potential of your GPU in Linux

Are you tired of your Graphic card is restricted under Linux? You dream of being able overclock your GPU like a pro to boost performance in your favorite games? So let me introduce you to your new best friend: CoreCtrl !

This software open Source will allow you to finally exploit the full potential of your AMD GPUs without taking your mind. No more need to be a command line master to adjust frequencies, voltages and whatnot. With CoreCtrl, everything is done in a few clicks from a super easy-to-use interface.

The tool includes a packed with features for power users. For example, you can create personalized overclocking profiles, monitor temperatures and performance in real time, finely manage fan speeds, and even undervolt your GPU to reduce its consumption.

And the best part is that CoreCtrl is compatible with a bunch of AMD graphics cards, from older generations to the latest models. In short, whether you have an old Radeon HD lying around or a brand new RX 6900 XT, you will be able to get the most out of it.

Some idiots will tell me: “ Yes, uuuh, but overclocking your GPU, uuuuh, it melts the card and voids the warrantyuuuu“.

So yes, obviously if you push the sliders into the red constantly, your GPU risks going up in smoke. But used wisely, overclocking can really give an appreciable boost, particularly for GPU processing and gaming (under Linux, lol), without necessarily reducing the lifespan of your equipment.

Moreover, CoreCtrl integrates guardrails well thought out to avoid this kind of disappointment. You will therefore be able to define safety thresholds for temperatures and voltages, so as not to burn everything. And if you ever feel that you have gone too far in the optimization, don’t panic: just reload the default profile and presto, your card returns to its original state.

If you’re interested in testing, it’s on the project’s GitLab repository or can be installed with this command:

sudo apt install corectrl

On the other hand, I won’t be responsible if you do shit, eh.

Happy overclocking friends! -
