Powercolor 5770 Clock speeds

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a Powercolor 5770. I had Windows 7, 32 Bit installed earlier and used CPUID and whenever I checked the GPU the core clock and memory clocks they were both under 300mhz I believe. I will check later today when I get home. I installed Windows 7, 64 Bit last night and will check the clocks with CPUID again. What should I be getting for readings with CPUID under the GPU, if those are wrong as I assume...what is suggested to fix them? My only thoughts are that the speeds adjust to content, and if I wasn't gaming they wouldn't be full speed maybe?

Card downclocks to save energy. Perfectly normal

That's how it should work with AMD Power Play and when the card is not doing anything, it will downclock to consume less energy/power hence less heat.
