GTX 670 FTW is this normal? Help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys so i recently got a EVGA GTX 670 FTW and i was doing some testing with it and my clock speeds where all over the place, so is this normal? And also i am running a Intel Celeron G530 2.4GHz(dont laugh) and im saving up for a I5 3570K but right now im using a Intel Celeron G530 2.4GHz. Would this be causing the random results? (im getting 30FPS on adv on BF3 when i should be easily getting 60FPS) my clock speed goes (In game BF3) from 810 up to 1006 and then back and forth over and over again as you can see from the graphs. Im not running any over clocks at all its a 2gb card as well. So any help would be good. I just want to know if there is something wrong with the card or if it is just my processor that is causing this

Thanks smile.gif

The results you are seeing is normal.

Kepler dynamically clocks the card depending on usage. Seeing as you're maxing out at about 50-60% usage, 810mhz sounds about right. The card will not fully clock up until it needs the extra grunt. That's part of what makes Kepler the more power efficient architecture this generation.

Once you get a 3570K, you will see the card clock up and stay there in most GPU-limited games. For now, you probably won't see that unless you force the card to clock up in nvidia control panel.
