Im using the amd catalyst program, and its telling me my core clock is at 500Mhz, even though i set it higher. Its supposed to be 750Mhz, and i dont know if its just not updating when i apply it, or its just stuck at 500Mhz.

sir when you are on desktop and not playing games your card downclocks to 500mhz to save energy and running cooler since you dont need the raw power to surf internet. when you will run a game the cards will automatically clock to your desired settings. the same principle applies to processors like what intel has with speedstep.
