How to Unlock the Potential of Your GPU on Linux with CoreCtrl

Are you tired of your graphics card being limited on Linux? Do you dream of overclocking your GPU like a pro to boost performance in your favorite games? Let me introduce you to your new best friend: CoreCtrl!

This open-source software allows you to finally unleash the full potential of your AMD GPU without any hassle. You no longer need to be a command-line wizard to adjust frequencies, voltages, and other settings. With CoreCtrl, everything can be done in a few clicks through an easy-to-use interface.

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

The best part is that CoreCtrl is compatible with a wide range of AMD graphics cards, from older generations to the latest models. Whether you have an old Radeon HD lying around or a brand-new RX 6900 XT, you can get the most out of it.

Some naysayers might say, “Yeah, but overclocking your GPU makes the card melt and voids the warranty.”

Sure, if you push the sliders into the red zone all the time, your GPU might go up in smoke. But when used wisely, overclocking can give a noticeable boost, especially for GPU-intensive tasks and gaming (yes, even on Linux), without necessarily reducing your hardware’s lifespan.

Moreover, CoreCtrl includes well-designed safeguards to prevent such mishaps. You can set safety thresholds for temperatures and voltages to avoid burning anything out. And if you feel you’ve gone too far with optimization, don’t worry: just reload the default profile, and your card will return to its original state.

If you’re interested in trying it out, you can find it on the project’s GitLab repository or install it with the following command:

sudo apt install corectrl

However, I won’t be responsible if you mess things up, okay?

Happy overclocking, friends! 😄
