I wouldn't be worried unless actual game performance went down too. WEI scores tend to be inaccurate.

Did you change drivers by any chance?

disable memory flexibility on bios,

if that doesn't work, imnot sure right now

got a new mobo mines gone down to 6.6 and yes there is a performance hit,

my mobo hasnt got memory flex so i better start fiddling with other crap

okay two fixes:

turn memory flexibilty off in bios


change power options of computer, and make sure the PCI-E link state IS NOT on power save.

now my cards back to 7.7

This is very normal with ATI cards as others have said. I posted the same question when I first got my 5870. It is just because they downclock when not in high use.

I remember looking at GPUZ and thinking, my card is bad, it is only clocked at 300mhz.

You can run it back to back and the score usually goes back up with no other configuration changes.

BTW, how do you like your card?
