Description gspu 2020-06-28 09:33:09 UTC
The Fan of my RX580 spins always on lowest setting, so using the GPU for lc0 (chess engine) will result in overheating after ~8 minutes. 

Since FreeBSD is capable to run Steam and stuff like OpenMW and a working OpenCL implementation plus having helping tool's like Homura, i think its important to have a mechanism to control the Fan speed (most important GPU), to establish FreeBSD as a Workstation/Graphic-OS.
