Thinking it through logically, I see your point and agree this is senseless. My nine saved test results all indicate a 301/602 clock rate. Yet my 5800U was certainly clocked at 500/1000 for the 3D tests, as demostrated by the FX Flow fan kicking in.

My guess is that 3DMark software measures NVCLK and MCLK before the 3D test actually begins, and therefore captures the 2D clockspeed of 300/600. I'll test this by throttling down 3D mode clocks in the control panel and reposting results later tonight.
I used to drive a Heisenberg, but whenever I'd glance at the speedometer, I'd get lost.
