    I got a GTX 260 and noticed that it's clocks were being misrepresented in the sensors page with 0.7.4.

    I rolled back until I discovered that 0.3.8 was the last version of GPU-Z to report them correctly.

    EVGA Precision also misreports the same core clock.

    thats because of the clock controller the PLL crystal cannot make even clock rations like 10 20 30 40 its always been a few mhz off IIRC at one point they all "leveled" the readings, I believe mine uses a 27mhz crystal so 1 step is a 27mhz jump IIRC.

    Yep, that is reading correct. It's not a misreport, it's the hardware clocked value verses the software rounding it to a nice and smooth number.

    OK, thanks for the clarification. I guess it's XFX's fault for not setting and advertising a clock that the card was actually capable of running at.
