No not really, I mean technically you can such as this:

https://noobminer.xyz/overclocking-multiple-nvidia-graphics-card-linux/

 

or this:

https://linuxconfig.org/overclock-your-radeon-gpu-with-amdgpu

 

But its not as effective if you are into that sort of thing.

 

Keep in mind GPU support in linux while getting better is still a bit behind Windows, i mean its not that far off but right now tools for overclocking and such are not really a priority with linux devs, its actually making the drivers work to begin with (heres looking at you nvidia)

And you sure as heck wont see companies like MSI or gigabyte create a tool for linux anytime soon.

 

Still at least its sort of possible in linux its near impossible to to do under OSX so at least its better than a Mac

Not that you would want to overclock a mac as most modern macs have terrible thermal design

You want my advice? Stick with Windoze.

 

If you're one of these guys who's into squeezing every last ounce of performance out of their hardware, Redmond's lame excuse for an OS does do this kinda thing rather well.

 

Linux is extremely versatile, and very good at an awful lot of things.....but over-clocking is NOT one of them. So it makes sense to stay with the OS that can supply the goods, and which everybody & his dog writes software for....

Madman's right, of course. It'll be a cold, wet Sunday in Hell before you'll ever see the likes of GigaByte & MSI, etc, writing anything for Linux. Linux might run the Internet, but the desktop userbase is just too small to justify companies like those investing the time, staff & training to accommodate the likes of us...

 

So it makes sense to keep Windoze around. Depends how much you value your sanity, I guess!

Also, CPUs seem to have to do more processing to display graphics in Linux, than in Windows. I suspect that same as with sound, this is because Linux uses its kernel for video, and Windows doesn't.

With computers that have ample processing power (for whatever they are used for), this isn't an issue, but it can become a problem when the CPU's workload is intensive.
