GPU-Z says core clock at 0MHz? Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs Core Graphics Last response: October 13, 2012 10:23 PM in Graphics & Displays Share DarkSable a c 87 U Graphics card October 13, 2012 2:32:51 AM Hey there Tom's! So, I recently put a new powersupply and a GTS 250 in my mom's computer. I updated all drivers, and ran GPU-z to check performance. So here's my problem. Under both the graphics card and the sensors tab, it says both my GPU Core Clock and my GPU Memory Clock is 0.0 MHz. Is there a way to fix this, or is it just a display error?

Try to run a game and see if the GTS 250 is actually working aka check the frames against a benchmark m 0 l ko888 a c 563 U Graphics card October 13, 2012 3:00:05 AM What is the rest of the components in the system?

The rest of the components are a Phenom II X2 521 at 3.5GHz 6 Gigs in 2 sticks of no-name RAM. A brand new Antec 600w PSU and a GTS 250. No name HDD and optical drive. m 0 l cbag October 13, 2012 3:15:20 AM ok, nevermind about virtu mvp. Try running a game and see if the gts250 performs as expected. Maybe GPU-z is just not able to access the info for some reason? m 0 l DarkSable a c 87 U Graphics card October 13, 2012 3:27:30 AM Here's the thing... I've only used cards from the 9800GT and lower... and a GTX 670. So I have no experience with mid range cards, and I don't know what sort of performance I'd be looking for. I was hoping that'd be the answer - what's another reliable test I can use? m 0 l cbag October 13, 2012 3:35:38 AM Go no further than Toms! http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gts-250,217...
