Question URGENT: 5700xt Drivers make minimum Memory Clock higher?

I own a MSI MECH OC 5700xt, and without the drivers, on MSI afterburner my memory clock is 875MHz, however with the latest drivers (Adrenalin 2020 19.12.3) the lowest I can make my memory clock speed is 1750MHz. Why do the drivers make my memory clock speed min higher - or is this just a visual glitch?

Thanks

What is 875 x 2? It's ok, I'll sit here and wait.

One program is using the "base" clock if you will, while the other is reading the "DDR" rate. (The first D in DDR stands for Double btw.) They are reading the same thing. Just showing it to you in a different way.

Thank you for confirming it is a visual issue, not an actual problem with the drivers or the card. However, I am forced to have a minimum of 1750MHz memory clock - and I see no way of turning the memory clock down.

Is there any way I can turn the mem clock down?

Down to what? How low are you supposed to have them?
Well I don't know, I just want to lower them to a point where the card is slightly more stable. Once I find out how to lower the memory clock - I can experiment different MHz amounts, and see which works best.

875/1750 might be the lowest it goes. I don't have that card so I can't test it.



Here is a pic of the 5700XT from our review of the card. Under memory clock it shows the same 1750. That probably is as low as the drivers allow? What happens when you try to go lower?
