    Could we get real control of our hardware from this? Examples above came to mind like the artificial power limits. For example my card is totally stable just has an artificial 250 watt power wall that cripples my overclocking(or real-clocking depending on how you view it) performance/ability. Rebar on Turing when it has the hardware to support it is another one. Anyone else think of things that Nvidia blocks or just doesn't support when they can/should? Cross my fingers that good comes out of this for people. Will open source drivers help with things like this?

    Don't just think of pushing your hardwares beyond it's limit. You can improve your computer by using power points directly from wall sockets if you're on rail type power plug, their worthless.

    I wonder if anyone has tried resizable BAR with any non-Ampere GPU on Linux?

    Unsupported AMD GPUs (like a RX 580) do resizable BAR on Linux even though AMD only officially support it with RDNA on Windows. It's possible it's a similar situation on Linux with NVIDIA, although I wonder if NV's driver would allow any kind of benefit on unsupported GPUs?
