What does "original" clock mean?


Recommended Posts

From my understanding the "Original" means when the video card is a a 3D environment. Meaning when you're playing a game then those are the clocks. The clocks you are seeing (300 MHz) is how fast it is running at idle. No point ot running it at 775 MHz when you're using MS Word otherwise you'd be wasting power and building up heat unecessarily.

Original clock means factory default 3D clock, encoded in the video card's BIOS. In 2D mode -- where AIDA64 is running -- your video card switches down to 2D clocks to save power.

When you overclock your video card, original clock will remind you the state from where you've started to increase clocks.
