MSI Afterburner Clock Readings

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have an nVidia GTX 260M and I'm having an issue with MSI Afterburner.



Look at the image, at stock speeds it says 500 MHz, but if you look on the clock speed on the right it says 540. Is there any reason? As I increase my clock speed on the slider, my clock goes up even higher. When I set it to "540" it changes it to like 567 or something.

I'm using 2.2.0 Beta 3, and I was having the same issue with 2.1.0

That is the strap you are on set it to what is stated on the right. Link below states GT200 straps and what they are:

Might actually be a issue with the mobile version of the 260 gpu now I look again.

I'm saying on the right my core clock is reading at "540" but I have it SET to "500"

If I increase it to 540 now it reads 583 in my hardware monitor.

Edit: you added a link; oh okay. let me read up on this thread, never heard of ''straps'' before Oo

40Mhz seems a little high for straps but I havent played with a GTX 2xx for a while and I may be wrong.

Load up GPU Z and see what that says

Your shader clock is about 100Mhz higher as well.... :

Have you tried any other software? Drivers?

I had tried using RivaTuner before but was kinda lost with that one (too impatient I suppose). I have gone through 3 driver updates since I started playing with my clocks, although this strap thing appears to be what it is. Still strange though.

497-540
508-555
515-558
518-562

It's an odd increment.

Now I'm using GPU-Z 0.5.1 (was already installed, idk if that's the newest one)
note; these are the same base clocks I used in MSI, not just when they bump higher.

497 - 500
508 - 514
515 - 516
518 - 520

Sooo, who do I believe? MSI or GPU-Z. I'm inclined to believe GPU-Z

Id trust GPU Z.

It may be a combination of a mobile card and a Beta Afterburner...

Rollback Afterburner to 2.1 and see what it reads.

You aready did that

It was telling me the same readings in official release of 2.1.0, I just updated to the Beta not an hour or 2 ago just to see if it would change my results. Oh well, I guess for some reason MSI Afterburner's HW is bugged, at least with my card/rig.

Mark as /solved please.
