Laptop runs hot with Radeon drivers
Currently using Ubuntu 12.04 x64 bit with Gnome classic.
Laptop runs hot using open source Radeon drivers and cuts battery life in half.
Runs cooler with fglrx drivers, though, the drivers are broken and I can't play games using them.
This issue occurs on any distro I use.
6GB 1333 RAM
AMD HD 6970M 2GB
I am able to play games with the radeon drivers, though I get temperatures of about 70 C, as opposed to around 55 C with fglrx.
Can you help with this problem?
