Hello. As the title says, stuck at 400/900MHz clocks.
And to give some more info. When i play a game as normal, i got 800/1200MHz clocks as it should be. This is with Firefox in the background, and some other programs.
But as fast as i for example have an Flash (youtube) video open in a tab in Firefox, my clocks will get stuck at odd 400/900MHz. (idle is 157/300MHz). And yes i know i could uncheck Hardware Acceleration in Flash options to fix this problem. But i want to use it. And it not only Flash videos in Firefox that will cause this problem.
If i play a game and open a movie in MPC Home Cinema (using DVXA) it will cause the same problem, get stuck at 400/900MHz.
And for me, this is pretty annoying. As i play in windowed and watch a movie at the same time.
So my questions is:
Why does it only clock to 400/900MHz?
Is there a fix for this?
What can i do so i can use 800/1200MHz clocks without uncheck Hardware Acceleration?
And if there is no fix for this, you should strongly consider fixing this. Cause i realy want to be able to play a game even tho a Youtube video is active in the background with Hardware Acceleration ON.
