Ubuntu – How to see the GPU temperture of the ATI graphics card


I trying to work out how long can my graphics card last with its fan off without overheating.

when I'm browsing the Internet, the graphics card fan is the loudest thing in my computer.

So my question is, how do I monitor the GPU temperature of my ATI Radeon HD 4850 graphics card.

If you are using the proprietary driver (fglrx), then the command you want is aticonfig --odgt.

So far as I'm aware, for many cards this sensor will not be exposed through lm-sensors.
