    The GPU/mem clocks are showing the OC values set in CCC, not the 'current' clocks of 157/300

    sensors are showing the right clocks, as expected.



    It just seems to me that it should be showing default clocks + current clocks, not default and '3D' profile clocks per CCC.

    even if it is the way its always been, why is it that way? If you look at it outright, you'd assume those readings were the clocks your card was currently running at...

    it dosnt say that its the current clock,

    it shows you the original clock and the 3D clock you have set your card to run at.





    if it was changed to the current clock, EVERYONE would start making more threads asking why there gpu is underclocked... it would be Amd cool and quiet all over again.

    well no, it doesnt say 3D clock at all... it just says GPU clock mem clock.

    now yeah, the tooltip says otherwise - but its not clear until you DO look at the tooltip.


    Comparing to a similar program: CPU-Z shows realtime clocks, not 'performance state' clocks.

    it dosnt specificaly thats its the 3D clock no,


    maybe there should infact be another line.

    maybe

    Current Clock =
    3D clock =
    Original clock =

    that would solve most problems.

    thats what i'm thinking, yes.

    slyfox2151: before i checked the sensors tab, i was about to make a thread asking why my card wasnt idling... so that points kinda moot.

    thats by design

    the first tab shows the 3d target clocks ie. what your card is specified to run at during gaming. the 2nd tab shows the realtime current clocks

    Would you consider putting a new field in that shows current clocks?

    i find the current method confusing, to be honest. GPU-Z is the odd one out of these kinds of programs, showing 'performance state clocks' instead of current clocks.
