1055T is fine even at stock for 6870s, but you'll see a small increase on a new chip.
I see what you are saying, but I play with Vsync on, on a 60Hz monitor so it's not a huge issue if you are capped at 60FPS.
But in Furmark full screen on 1920x1080 with displacment mapping and post FX I am averaging 90 odd FPS.

Yeah the frequency will stay the same because you switched off the power saving feature, which in turn lowers the MHz of the GPU.
