GPU throttles when OC'd Tags: Graphics Cards GPUs Graphics Last response: January 1, 2013 1:48 PM in Graphics & Displays Share cheti January 1, 2013 11:20:40 AM Hey, so i got my new sapphire 7950 OC and i overclocked it with amd overdrive and msi afterburner to 1150 mhz. I set the memory clock to 1575 and core voltage to 1.25 as said in the tutorial. Now i launch bf3 and play while gpu-z is running. After inspection i see that the gpu clock jumps from 800 to 1150 all the time as in spikes. Whats the problem ?
