Here are 15W FX-8800P benchmarks and very interesting discussions with lots of info

Hi

 

I've recently purchused a laptop with the AMD Carrizo FX-8800P (Envy 15Z) and I have a clear issue with it.

As soon as I run any 3D program, the CPU downclocks to 1.3GHZ and the GPU downclock to some low clocks level too. I've tried Furmark and Bioshock. What gives?

 

Overdrive doesn't work for this APU and Catalyst doesn't do anything.

What can I do?

 

Thanks
