AMD graphic cards - do they support PCIE hotplug?

Hello,

 

I use AMD's cards on Linux. I'm hoping to soon drop fglrx driver in favor of amdgpu. However, I don't have much faith in GPU drivers for Linux in general, so I think a good way to save power would be to actually detach the GPUs when they aren't needed instead of relying on the driver. I've read that the PCIE standard generally supports this, but are AMD's cards supporting that as well in hardware and software?

 

Best regards,
Michael
