GpuPowerMizerMode for NVIDIA graphics card - fanisatt - 15th April 2017

I have just installed the Netrunner 17.03.
I don't want to install any nvidia drivers for my NVIDIA GT-710 card but, I wonder if there is a way to lock (safely) the frequency up ... something like I do in MAUI with GpuPowerMizerMode=1 for the nvidia drivers.
Any help please ?
Best Regards !!

This is done by default as far as I know as boost or pstate isn't activated by default on your hardware with nouveau.

Thank you leszek for your response.
I don't know what is "boost or pstate" !
Anyway I think you mean that there is nothing to do because, the default frequency of the graph. card remains in high level with nouveau. I hope it is ok !
In MAUI I have installed the nvidia drivers as you already know and I noticed that the frequency was altered between 2 levels (up and high). So I locked it in high level with a startup command : /usr/bin/nvidia-settings -a [gpu:0]/GpuPowerMizerMode=1 and it's fine now.
Here in Netrunner I have to try to keep a pure Linux system...
Best regards !

boost is the technology that allows the graphics card clock frequency to go higher for demanding tasks (i.e. games)
pstate is the name for the frequency clock state.
