6870 High idle Tags: Radeon Software Graphics Last response: September 19, 2011 12:02 AM in Graphics & Displays Share fprill September 12, 2011 6:34:32 PM Hello, I just updated the Radeon software and now my card is idleing at 600MHz when before it was at 100MHz. What did it change and how can I get it idleing at a lower speed? No hardware was changed or added displays. Thank you!
