Hello guys, this is my first post. I was just getting into CPU overclocking and while in CPU-Z I noticed my GPU's speeds being quite a bit lower than the stated from newegg. The 1371-AR here http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... shows core clock @ 720Mhz & Shader @ 1440Mhz yet CPU-Z shows 405Mhz & 810Mhz respectively.
How come such a variation in the numbers? I just updated to the latest software today.

Modern graphic cards downclock themselves when all power is not needed just like CPUs. Download GPU-Z it will show default clocks, target clocks, as well as monitor current clocks, temperatures, etc.

that was clock when the card running an application that doesn't need all gpu horse power to run such as playing some videos. the core will downclock itself more if your pc was truly in idle (around 50mhz for the core). try running some games and look at the gpu-z log
