    Hey guys is it likely that my CPU is bottlenecking my GPU performance?

    When I ran Vantage at 4.5ghz I was able to get 33k score, but when I clocked my CPU to 4.8ghz the GPU score rose to 37k and when I clocked my GPU higher the score did not change...

    Can anyone clarify this? Is it just Vantage and should I really be using something else to test performance?
