Yep. It doesn't like having AF at 16x with a 1500mhz cpu. And it won't push gpu very hard. Back at 1x AF it's not butter smooth but pretty good and it works the cpu hard. GPU just snoozes at 35 percent utilization but at least it doesn't dump back into 2d clocks all the time on cut scenes. He'd probably get a good 40ish frames per second if he just overclocked up to 1.8 to 2.0 ghz.
I've never run my cpu this slow. I tried it out at 1800 once but x5 is my minimum multiplier.
Furmark stays the same at 1500mhz cpu
And in the last one going from underclocked gpu to overclocked gpu it just puts the gpu to sleep. Frames stay about 30 but gpu dives for 2d clocks after it finishes 3 pages of render. It only stays in 3d clocks while your closing down game. I hate the guy in the humvee with the 30 cal roof mounted machine gun and blast shield.
