    Wouldn't this more likely be a GPU-Z thing rather than the driver?

    that's my thinking. So far, the biggest difference I see is that they reduced mem clock slider.

    D'OH!

    I'm waiting for the AGP hotfix, they're always a few days or a week later. :(

    Yeah I noticed that the temp readouts in CCC were reading wrong but when I restarted they read fine. I am not noticing that problem with GPU-Z try re-installing the drivers, that might help. There seems to be a trend among all of you that are having problems, you all have 4800 series video cards.

    You guys don't seem to have the 'new' GPU-Z that adds the Display tab. Try that one.

    Its the same,i have tried it.Tbh the peformance of cat 8.9 is a tad lower than 8.8,so i think i will go back to 8.8.

    It's probably a Gpuz bug.

    It's called incompatability. GPU-Z just needs to be updated to work with the 8.9's. ATi seems to have changed the way to address some of the cards readings.

    Too bad it really isn't running that high at stock voltage at stock fan speeds. Then the suckers would really sell!

    Same here.
    Of course the correct clocks show under the sensor tab when benchtesting.

    remember these cards have powerplay.

    i have a better idea, remove his thread because he sounds too much like a fanboy.

    It seems that ATI/AMD likes to play around with the clock reading method in their Catalyst drivers. I posted about a similar issue back with a previous set of Catalyst 8.8 beta drivers in reference to the ATI Radeon HD 4870. When the official Catalyst 8.8 drivers came out the problem was gone. Yes, it's happening again with the new official Catalyst 8.9 drivers.

    W1zzard replied to me in the forum with the following:

    We'll have to wait for an update. Too bad ATI/AMD won't just make up their mind and stick with a singular method. :ohwell:
