Simple application to read current clocks of ATi Radeon cards (xf86-video-ati, xf86-video-amdgpu).

xf86-video-ati and xf86-video-amdgpu driver

Install and run radeon-profile-daemon ( for using this app as normal user. Otherwise app need to be run with root privilages for changing power profiles (and clocks readings sometimes). You can add username ALL = NOPASSWD: /usr/bin/radeon-profile to your /etc/sudoers. Here is tip for run app as normal user but involves change permissions to system files:


  • Monitoring of basic GPU parameters (frequencies, voltages, usage, temperature, fan speed)
  • DPM profiles and power levels
  • Fan control (HD 7000+), definition of multiple custom curves or fixed speed
  • Overclocking (amdgpu) (Wattman, Overdrive, PowerPlay etc)
  • Per app profiles/Event definitions (i.e. change fan profile when temp above defined or set DPM to high when selected binary executed)
  • Define binaries to run with set of environment variablees (i.e. GALLIUM_HUD, MESA, LIBGL etc)


  • Qt 5.6<= (qt5-base and qt5-charts) (On Debian/Ubuntu: qt5-default libqt5charts5-dev)
  • libxrandr
  • libdrm (for amdgpu, 2.4.79<=, more recent, the better)
  • recent kernel (for amdgpu 4.12<=, more recent, the better)
  • radeon card

For full functionality:

  • glxinfo - info about OpenGL, mesa
  • xdriinfo - driver info
  • xrandr - connected displays


git clone
cd radeon-profile/radeon-profile

The resulting binary is ./target/radeon-profile

For Ubuntu 17.04, qt5-charts isn't available:

  • Use qtchooser -l to list available profiles
  • Use qmake -qt=[profile from qtchooser] to specify Qt root or download and install a Qt bundle from
  • Make a qt5opt.conf in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/qtchooser/ containing:



Available for Ubuntu from PPA stable and git develop repository

Add in terminal commands:

  • For git ppa:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:radeon-profile/radeon-profile
  • For stable ppa:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:radeon-profile/stable
  • Then run commands:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install radeon-profile
