hmm....??

that is strange, the default clock is 750mhz on your card is it not..

im not sure why it states 600mhz..??, have you flashed the card BIOS since you've had it..??

....you are also saying CCC is showing 600mhz as your current clock speed too.

i haven't flashed anything no mate, and yes the CCC is showing 600mhz to

download & run ''MSI Afterburner'' this has its own sensor, lets see what that has to say about your anomalous clocks....

can i have a link to the EXACT card you have.....


there's a problem here & it could well be H/W related, if all apps are showing this ''600mhz'' its likely not a S/W bug.

there's certainly an issue here..... if it was a 2D downclock i'd think it to be lower than 600mhz (there's nothing on the web about a 4870 being that speed @ idle or load)

& even if im wrong & that IS the 2D downclock, it should revert as soon as stressed back up to 3D numbers....

how long have you had the card, is there a warranty..??
