There are 3 options which can be used individually or combined:

1. ClockGating - Enables chips specific power saving features like clock gating
that are handled by the hardware directly.  This doesn't really do much on
r6xx/r7xx boards yet.
2. DynamicPM - Automatically reduces the engine clock and pcie lanes when dpms
has powered down the displays
3. ForceLowPowerMode - Runs the chip at a constant reduced engine clock and
pcie lanes.
