HD 5850

I have an alienware 15" laptop with Radeon HD5850. When I benchmark it it says that the coreclock is 100MHz, and the memory clock is 150MHz.
On AMD's hp the specs are listed as: memory speed 1 GHz and engine clock 500-625.

Can I turn up the clockspeed of my GPU without breaking the warranty?

I'm not sure what the clocks are but what you're seeing is idle clocks for 2D stuff. It's meant to save power. If you run a benchmark it'll automatically increase the clocks.

You can overclock it I'm sure, technically it would break the warranty but there's also almost no way they could prove you did that if you just reset to stock.
