3dMark06 Question

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just ran my first 06 tests last night and noticed something interesting maybe someone could tell me why this is happening.

In my 05 tests my Video Core Clock is set at 491 which is default for my card yet when i now run 06 it is under clocking my card to 450. I went back and forth on this a few times last night and thought it was strange. Anyone have any thoughts? I dont use any overclocking utilities at all just FYI.

Ya I noticed the same thing as it does take the mem clock but not the core clock.

It did the same thing to me too. I think it will get fixed in later releases.

Well here are my findings. After installing coolbits to make sure my core clock was set to 491, 3DMark06 still brings it down to 450. This must be a bug and hopefully fixed in the next patch.
Thanx for all those who commented.
