Gainward 680

I just took delivery of a Gainward 680, and I am busy trying to test it. First thing I notice is that the memory clock reports to be 1502 Mhz and the spec is reported to be 6008 Mhz.

I am testing this with GPU-Z.0.6.2. All other specs seem to be ok. I am wondering if there is something I am overlooking. Any thoughts anyone ?

GDDR5 memory multiplies the base frequency by 4 so 1502x4=6008. So all is good. :toast:
