Is it a common ATI practice to sell Mobility Radeon GPUs as Mobility FireGL GPUs?

Discussion created by veemexx on Nov 12, 2008

Hi, I have bought a Lenovo W500 and have found that instead of a Mobility FireGL V5700 GPU(Device ID 9595), I have a Mobility Radeon HD3650 GPU(Device ID 9591) modded to work like a FireGL. See it here:

The ISV video drivers do not work for many W500 owners and it is frustrating.

Is it an ATI practice of selling Mobility Radeons to Notebook Manufacturers and advertise them as Mobility FireGLs?

Thanks for your response.
