    The AMD developers still have a few more weeks to get their new feature material ready for the Linux 4.8 kernel while here is an early look at some of the code merged so far. One of the changes we're looking forward to most with the AMDGPU DRM of Linux 4.8 is the OverDrive overclocking support. Finally the ability with the open-source AMD stack to overclock your GPU easily, but it's only supported for AMDGPU-capable hardware. There are commits though in the 4.8 W.I.P. branch for enabling the overclocking for Sea Islands with that experimental AMDGPU support. Another addition since the original AMDGPU overclocking support is there's now support for video memory overclocking too. Similar to the GPU core re-clocking, the memory overclocking can be done up to 20% in 1% steps.
