    I went to EVGAs site to try and identify which card exactly I have. I know it's GTX 460 and not the standard edition, but I cannot remember if its Superclock or Special Edition. So I'm checking the specs on all of their listed GTX 460 cards and non of them rly match on the different "clocks". Though I noticed that all of them were listed with a considerable higher memory clock MHz. When I ope EVGA Precision, it shows the memory clock at 2000 MHz. It's always been like that, but the cards on EVGA site has between 3800 and 4100 or something like that. Though I also notice it says "Effective" behind the memory clock. It does not on the other clocks. What does this mean?

    Here are some of them:

    Just look at it physically, there's probably a sticker on the PCB saying what it is, or look in GPU-Z and show a screenshot.

    Your 2000MHz clock = 4000MHz effective.

    It lowers itself when you are not using it so save power.

    Run a game to check its clock.
