So recently i got myself a AMD RADEON 6530D 512mb

and i installed a few games including battlefield 3. and when i got in game i had to run battlefield 3 on the lowest and 800x600. so i installed GPU-Z and i saw that my Core clock is always locked at 275mhz. the maximum is 444mhz.

The thing is i passed the minimum requirements for battlefield 3. Other games seem to be fine since they are not demanding. I was wondering how to unlock my core clock. MSI afterburner, Rivatuner or ATT did not help! :cry: 



Thanks :)

There are methods to do that, you may risk warranty problems and possibly instability/overheating.

Next month i am upgrading to a gtx 460. But it shouldn't overheat since i got myself Fan for the gpu and 444 is the max which should be safe. may i have the methods?

the AMD RADEON 6530D 512mb is an intergrated graphics chip, have you tried looking at GPUz when the system is running a game or benchmark.

it will have a low power draw "Idle" state and a full bore performance state for when its required.

asking the intergrated GPU to play games like BF3 is a tall order in the first place. im not supprised you find it unplayable.

+1 "the AMD RADEON 6530D 512mb is an intergrated graphics chip". I assume that you have an AMD APU with built in graphics. It's not meant to be a graphics powerhouse for high end games such as BF3. That particular GPU would even struggle a bit with Diablo III.

I tried Diablo III and running maxed out. don't see any problem. but the issue with battlefield 3 is the shadows even on Low they are EXTREMELY strong and they eat loads of fps. Like in battlefield 2 i get 150 FPS but with shadows on its about 70 which is okay

Yes, BF3 is a CPU and GPU eater
