How to push up to maximum frequency.

Hostname: rockpro64

Core0: 1416Mhz
Core1: 1416Mhz
Core2: 1416Mhz
Core3: 1416Mhz
Core4: 1800Mhz
Core5: 1800Mhz
CPU Governor: performance
Temperature: 40  C

I am wondering how I can push 4 LITTLE cores to 1.5Ghz and 2 big cores to 2.0Ghz.

For Banana PI M3, there is a file called sys_config.fex, has content like:
B_LV3_freq = 1608000000
B_LV3_volt = 920

B_LV4_freq = 1200000000
B_LV4_volt = 840

B_LV5_freq = 0
B_LV5_volt = 840

B_LV6_freq = 0
B_LV6_volt = 840

B_LV7_freq = 0
B_LV7_volt = 840

B_LV8_freq = 0
B_LV8_volt = 840

[vf_table1]

I am thinking if there is similar file in rockpro64, so I can tune it by myself to unlock 2.0Ghz/1.5Ghz

BTW - I have a good power supply 12V/6A, full height heat sink, and a good cooling fan running on top of the sink. want to unlock the potential of RK3399 CPU

No doubt will come at some stage but you could have quite a wait
  • Ayufan stated 1st goal was stability for his stuff
  • He has published recipe here for Rock64 - you need to understand the device tree it seems
  • Reading the RK3399 spec, Rockchip only claim 1.8 & 1.4 (linked on wiki, page 63) (If playing with DT then spec max VDD for A72 is 1.25V, 1.20V for A53)

OK - think I have a fairly stable kernel running 2.0/1.5GHz.

My original sbc-bench results on 4.4.138 Ayufan kernel.

My latest sbc-bench results on 4.18-rc8 kernel I have hacked.

Which are pretty similar to those for a NanoPi M4. (Also RK3399, they have DDR3 mem AFAIK which seems a bit faster)

And for completeness (on the 4.18 kernel), my SM961:

Code:
iozone -e -I -a -s 100M -r 4k -r 16k -r 512k -r 1024k -r 16384k -i 0 -i 1 -i 2
