Hi, my ATI 5770 won't clcok itsefl at stock settings (850/1200) while playing FIFA 10, PES 2010 or Guitar Hero 3; but rather throttle back and forth from 2D to 3D (max) clocks, causing severe stuttering in those games.
Is there any way I can force stock clocks or disable throttling?
I gather that:
Want_0 = 2D
Want_1 = Mild 3D
Want_2 = Full 3D
Now, If I were to change Want_0 core and memory settings to higher settings, wouldn't I also need to increase the Want_0 value for "corevoltagetarget" too?
I don't want to mess around with this settings, but I think this is the only way....
You probably don't want to change the voltages. Those are probably the 3 choices 0.95v to 1.125v that the card can do, probably defaulted to the lowest. It shouldn't switch up when moving to 3d from 2d...but don't quote me on that one.
I'd leave that at 0.95v unless you have good cooling and want to overclock it.
jennyh, what I want to do is to make 2D settings (157/300) be the same as the 3D settings (850/1200) so that the card does not underclock under 2D mode.
To achieve this, I would have to set Want_0 (2D settings) and Want_1 (low 3D settings) at 850/1200 too.
Now, according to the values in the XML file, the core voltage also gets lower when the card underclocks (950 from 1125 in Want_0); but if I override Want_0 core clocks and manually set them to 850mhz; then I think I would need Want_0 voltage to be 1125 (which is the one set for 3D mode 850/1200).
Note: I AM NOT WILLING TO OVERCLOCK THE CARD; JUST PREVENT THROTTLING.
What puzzles me is that I entered the following values:
the card never goes past 70º while in crysis or under torture tests... so temperature is NOT the problem.
The problem is FIFA 10 and other games use just about 5% of the GPU; and thus the card does not reach its default clocks (850/1200); like it does in other games such as Modern Warfare 2; Crysis, etc.
