Good morning

I recently installed a new driver for my graphics card, now today I checked the clock frequency's and it scared the hell out of me.

The Asus Extreme N6600GT runs (standard) on:

Core: 500 Mhz
Memory clock: 1 gig

Now my memory clock runs @ 2 gig! and it has been that for atleast 4 days and I havent noticed any problems during games, the temperature is 33 degrees (when IDLE).

So my question is, can a driver update cause a graphics card to boost itself 1 gig of memory clock frequency?

Btw the driver I installed is the Nvidia 93.71

Help would be appreciated

The memory on the card is unable to run at 2 GHz, which means for some reason the driver is reporting the wrong value. Best way to fix it would probably be clean-installing the drivers.
