The following steps were taken --

aticonfig --od-enable

aticonfig --od-setclocks 960,1445

aticonfig --od-commitclocks

After a reboot this's the result --

Code:
Default Adapter - AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series
                            Core (MHz)    Memory (MHz)
           Current Clocks :    850           1200
             Current Peak :    960           1445
  Configurable Peak Range : [850-960]     [1200-1445]
                 GPU load :    100%


While running GPU intensive applications.

Just a guess. Don*t you need to apply these commands with every boot so they are in active use? Well if you verified that this overclocking works with these commands than you could add them to your boot setup.

I thought the only way to apply these clocks is after a reboot. The card remembers it's overclocking state following a power off.

For overclocking you could modify the Flash-ROM of your graphic cards(GPU) which is usually referenced as flashing the rom of the gpu. These settings are permanent and will not be forgotten on a power off.

Most other utilities only modify the current settings of your gpu until you turn off your computer. After a restart of the computer the settings are usually gone.


I assumed that you changed these GPU settings temporarily with aticonfig. I was curious so I checked the net myself. My opinion is that aticonfig only temporarily changes these settings and therefore these settings need to be applied on every reboot of your computer.

But officially the changes must be permanent. And I'm not even getting temporary changes.

Speaking of which I'll ask about this in the official forums also.
