These are probably the output parameters, for the screen or something.

Can you check what the real values are, maybe by using some windows tool on
the box, or by hunting the specs of your model on the manufacturer's site or
on various review sites ?

export it correctly to userland, thus confusing rovclock.
The 200Mhz core clock and 252Mhz ram clock sounds fine and logical.
