Core and memory clock speeds

Hi everyone.. I have a question regarding the core and memory speed of my sapphire hd 5670 1gb ddr5 vga.. gpu z is detecting the correct clock, but when i click on sensor clock is 157 core 300 memory, launched a game and play for a couple of minutes with gpu z on the background then alt+tabbing to check if clocks are going up, it's still has the same numbers. i got a 30fps high and 19fps low playing mw3 on 1280x768 high settings.. i feel this is low.. updated drivers 11.11v.. any suggestions or help is highly appreciated..

thanks

    No way, you're running at the full speed maybe the GPU-Z is taking a while to refresh, the game won't even run at those clocks and you said High settings, 1280x resolution, 30 FPS... you're fine.
  2. enable the log and check "refresh even when in background" the clocks should be down when you at the desktop. your performance seems fine.

    Cool yourself down. And i don't care about what your brother's getting. And how many FPS is not my concern, my comment was regarding the clocks that the OP is thinking that causing the problem.

    and FPS = CPU+GPU not all the members have i7 or x4 BE, understood ?

    157MHz GPU clock & 300MHz memory clock is normal power saving mode of HD5670. When you play game, it automatically goes up to 775MHz Core & 950/1000MHz memory. You can go to sensor tab in GPU-Z & click 157MHz value two times. It will record the maximum value. Now start a game & ALT+TAB to check the value.
