Hi

 

so, I got a laptop with the new AMD Carrizo FX-8800P and I have some issues:

1. clocks almost never go above 2.5GHZ even when doing nothing with "high performance" power mode

2. As soon as I do anything with 3D, the CPU clocks go down to 1.3GHZ and GPU downclocks also, barely passing the 600MHZ and many times go down to 350MHZ which is really low

 

Overdrive doesn't work, Catalyst doesn't help. What can I do? It obviously hurts the 3D performance..
