Dedicated GPU being downclocked while Integrated GPU is overclocking?

My AMD Radeon R9 M290X is capped at 450MHz/300MHz regardless of what settings I change in any OC utilites or on CCC.


The clock is set to 903/1256 (currently using TRIXX) but the card is ALWAYS capped at 450/300 in reality.


For whatever reason, my integrated card that is set to 400/800 is actually running at 1150/800.


I have absolutely no clue what to do or how to fix this.


I've tried clean uninstalling and reinstalling every driver available.
I've installed and uninstalled every OC utility making sure they aren't affecting each other.
I've reset BIOS.
I've taken the laptop (Alienware 17) apart to make sure the GPU is installed properly.


Is the GPU/Power Supply (or wiring) malfunctioning?


Or can it be solved with a few clicks?


Either way, I'm at a complete loss. Any help is greatly appreciated.
