It might not increase, but possibly the fps can stay constant even at higher resolution when there is a CPU bottleneck. Also do you have the video where it shows 7950 getting 60 fps with the i3 ?

GPU clock dropped due to the low GPU usage and 0 power limit. if he maxed the power limit the card should run at a constant 1 GHz. But possibly the low GPU usage/ clock fluctuations due to the power supply not enough for the card.Edited by HeadlessKnight - 7/3/13 at 5:35am
