I have a Powercolour HD 6670 and Im not sure about the memory clock speed as on the AMD site it says it should be 1000mhz (http://www.amd.com/us/products/desktop/graphics/amd-rad...) and GPU-Z tells me it is 500mhz, also the Powercolour's website does not specify the memory clock speed it just says "TBA MHz" (TBA=To be announced) (http://www.powercolor.com/global/products_features.asp?...), So im just wondering if its right, Im not an expert on these things so I dont know what to do.

Another thing is that the memory bandwith should be 64GB/s according to the AMD site and GPU-Z tells me its 16GB/s

Can someone tell me if i should overclock the clock speed to 1000mhz or leave it as it is, Thanks.

the cards run slower when at idle. leave gpu-z open and run something in windowed mode. gpu-z should show faster speeds.

says the gpu core speed is 800 and the ram is 1000. may want try prgram like hardware info to see if it can read the gpu and memory bus speed. also depending on the chipset and age of your mb and if you have the newest drivers is the card running in pci 1.0 or 2.0 mode???

in the CCC ( catalyst control center ) from amd ( should be on your taskbar-desktop )......... open it and go to the "overdrive" section. on the bottom it should give proper numbers. open a game in windowed mode and see if they change.

Im pretty sure the memory clock speed is 500mhz at max preformance
