XFX 6950 2GB stuck at 500MHz core??
So I just got a non reference XFX 6950 2GB. Installed it, installed 11.11 driver, go to check it, and the card wont go above 500MHz core clock, while the mem clock goes all the way to 1250 --where it's supposed to be.
So I uninstall the driver, and install 11.9, no change.
While checking the card with GPU shark, it shows the different performance states of the card.
Performance state 0:
Performance state 1:
Performance state 2:
So as far as I can tell, the card is getting stuck in performance state 1. Has anyone run across this? What was your fix?
FWIW, I noticed with my old 5870 that it too would get stuck in performance state 1 if I had any browsers open with flash animation. Closing the browser would remedy this. However, with the 6950, it does not.
