If I run a game in windowed mode are the core clocks supposed to fluctuate or should they be running at full while v-sync is off?

I would like a definitive answer to this question.


I have a r9 295x2 and I want to know if I run a game in windowed mode should the core clocks fluctuate up and down? or should they be at full while playing a game?


I know crossfire will not work in windowed mode, I am talking about running any game in windowed mode with out crossfire.


My card has always had fluctuating cores while in windowed mode on all drivers.


What would be the point of the core clocks dropping in games even in windowed mode if you are trying to play with the highest fps. V-sync is also off.


Power settings are always set at 50% in overdrive.


Even running the benchmark test within gpuz in windowed mode has the core clocks fluctuating. This is in 15.11.1 and all the Crimson drivers and previous drivers before 15.11.1
