Problem With X1900XT

Hello, I have a Sapphire Radeon X1900XT 256Mb, and i think it's running slower than it should be. The card works fine, but when i open the ATI catalyst control center software, And click on the Overdrive option, i can see that both the graphics processor and the memory are running slower than they should be, and slower than requested.

Here is a screenshot:

As you can see, the requested frequencies are in both cases about 100Mhz higher than the ones the card is achieving. Is this normal? Does it affect my gaming a lot? How can i change it? Ive tried running ATI overdrive and putting up the requested clocks but they remain the same.

Any help?
Thanks for your time.

  1. Dont worry about it my 1900xtx does the same. it throttles the clock speed while not being used. Its just a feture to save power and your video cards life.
  2. So when it goes under heavy load (EG: Gaming) the clock speeds actually live up to their expectations huh? Thanks, was just a bit worried.
