I do not know much about benchmarking and I had a question about the below results.
AMD Radeon HD 6670
Giga-Byte Technology Co., Ltd.
# of cards
SLI / CrossFire
Not FM Approved
I wanted to know if anyone knows why it says Core is 100 and Mem is 150 when the 6670 cards core is listed at 800 and mem is 1000.
I do not know much about graphics cards in general (not a heavy gamer) but this was confusing to me. Does the benchmark rate the core on a different scale?
I am also getting this

It looks like your PC should score better. Here are some suggestions to get more performance out of your PC
^^ Everything checks out so I am concerned. I did however build the most basic budget machine I could for the cheapest price at the time so maybe this is just what I should expect
Win 7 64Bit
AMD Phenom X6
8GBs Kingston Hyper X
AMD HD 6670 graphics card.
Basically wanting to know why the card is showing a lower clock on the benchmark (much lower) than the actual clock.

it only takes one moron to install exploits and viruses on a computer and a Mac doesn't make one smarter.
It looks like you are running a July beta of drivers. The August gold versions went live a few days ago. You might update to those and see if that helps. Your card could be clocking down due to heat. Do you have some case temps? Do you have any power saving features turned on?
How is the actual performance in games? If the card is truly clocking down to the rate the benchmark you ran shows, then it should be noticeable. It would probably even crash due to instability.
I would run a different benchmark program too, something that you can compare to a published review. I would suspect what you are seeing is a mistake/error in the program.
Appreciate the answer! I did have cpuz installed but didn't think to use it to check this.
For cpuz I am actually showing this...
In my Catalysts panel I am showing this...
My games perform seamlessly.
Funny thing is the benchmark runs super glitchy as if I were running it using onboard and/or integrated intel or something.
Almost wondering if maybe that info in the catalyst panel is saying that it underclocks to save power then clocks up when I play games and possibly the benchmark is not making it clock up.
I looked around in the entire panel and couldn't find anything that lets me adjust or change the so called "High performance mode" or rather setting it to "always run in high performance mode". I am guessing it just does that when it wants or when I am gaming.
I did update the drivers after I posted yesterday.]
Am running Catalyst 12.8 now and maybe this next bit of info helps
I found something weird online.
"Your symptom is not a power saving feature. It's the clocked at 100 for hardware accelerated video. If you are running anything using flash, which Youtube does, it will try to accelerate it because hardware acceleration is defaulted to enabled in Flash. Right click the flash window and go into the Flash options. Uncheck hardware acceleration."
Oh and what's under the "Power" tab on the Catalyst Control Center? Maybe you can disable power saving mode in there.
