    Sorry I made new thread, wasnt sure and couldnt find an official 0.3.2 bug thread.

    This one should be simple anyway.

    system - XP SP3, HIS Radeon 4850 turbo, cat 9.1 gpu-z 0.3.2

    under the graphics card tab it reports the GPU Clock @ 650 Mhz and under the sensors tab it reports the gpu clock as 500 Mhz.

    Since this is idle on desktop, I would assume that the 500 Mhz gpu clock reading under the sensor tab is correct, and the 650 Mhz gpu clock reading on the graphics card tab is incorrect. Like I said minor detail.

    Great piece of software, used it to edit my bios and up the fan a bit, thanks W1zz and TPU!

    If you mean that the GPU clock speed is reported as 650MHz, and as 500MHz under the sensors tab, I presume that to be correct behaviour. The GPU info listed on the first tab are the reported specs of the card, not the current clock speeds. That's what's reported in the sensors tab.

    Try using Gpu-Z 0.3.0 or older and you'll see the Graphics tab usually displays the current GPU/MEM clocks.

    Gpu-Z 0.3.1 and newer somehow lost that function, and now displays the default 3D GPU/MEM clocks.

    That's how it's been for me, anyways...

    Since the card is idle when you are taking the reading, my guess is that it is in a power saving state, which reduces the clocks of the GPU and Memory, as well as the voltages used at that time.
