Why do 5 secs after launching GPU-Z, clock speed shows as hundreds of thousand for a few secs and then back to normal again (1000 MHz)? Is it because I'm using beta driver?

GPU-z almost never reads my 7970s correctly; I rely on MSI Afteburner for correct readings on voltages/clocks.

I think it was just a delay in reading the clock
I have the same problem with my his 5770 all across gpu-z version
it's not a big problem in gaming or rendering image...
