radeon hd7870, Driver reporting incorrect monitor specs

I just upgraded to the newest drivers and was unable to get my monitor to run at a 16:10 or a 16:9 spec ratio out of the shown on the AMD control panel, I had to over drive the display to resize back to what it was on the previous version drivers, it seems to ignore widescreen 1080p or basic for that matter.  I had to revert back to 14.501.1003.141120a.177998C in order for the 1680x1050 to not overfill the screen. Up to today, windows 10 is the only OS I have seen this issue.

The software seems to ignore the normal settings i.E. 1680x1050,  and is instead setting the display for the 1080p form HDMI. This a new build with just office, motherboard drivers and display.  Nothing else installed, so the question is WHY???
