    install ati tray tools, overclock the thing, and voilla, its gone.

    cant use my card with that "powerplay" crap.. even windows is slow then..
    playing video's is impossible with that "feature" aswell.

    I maybe dont understand how GDDR5 does work but why are you only having 950 Mhz memory clock? How does that work?

    Uh...Powerplay doesn't slow down any video or desktop stuff....I love powerplay, it makes the fan noise bearable when I'm not doing anything. And mine clocks all the way down to 300 on the GPU.
