Is it possible to overclock my Radeon HD2400 XT graphics card under Ubuntu? Which application is needed? I have the proprietary driver installed.

I think the application you are looking for is rovclock.

sudo apt-get install rovclock

  • Don't care about it. You can set the frequencies ignoring this message. This seems to be a common problem, and most people affected by it (including me) claim that it can be safely ignored and it works anyway. Nov 7, 2010 at 14:29

You can also try AMDOverdriveCtrl:



lsadl is only application i found that can overclock Radeon Mobility(require Catalyst driver), also it can change voltage:

Steps to install:

  1. Download lsadl-0.1.2.tar.bz2 from http://freecode.com/projects/lsadl
  2. Download ADL_SDK6 from http://developer.amd.com/tools-and-sdks/graphics-development/display-library-adl-sdk/

  3. Extract lsadl-0.1.2.tar.bz2 to any folder (lsadl-0.1.2 in my case)

  4. Create ADL_SDK folder in created folder and extract files from ALD_SDK_6.0.zip to it (lsadl-0.1.2/ADL_SDK in my case)

  5. install sudo apt-get install GTK+2, sudo apt-get install build-essential, sudo apt-get install autoconf, sudo apt-get install automake

  6. in terminal go to lsadl folder ( cd '/home/gap/downloads/lsadl-0.1.2' in my case)

  7. ./autogen.sh

  8. ./configure && make

  9. run program ./lsadl

Succesed with i3 2330m + radeon 6650m graph card on Ubuntu 15.04.
