    R9 370 shows as a R9 200 series in catalyst and device manager

      Hi,

      For some weird reason does my R9 370 show as a 200 series in catalyst and in device manager and all other places. I am running Win 10 pro and updated to catalyst 16.2.2 (16.2.1 did the same) I am not understanding why and google has no solution. Anyone?

      Thanks.

      Ian

          Both the same drivers so it doesn't really matter what it is called in the device manager.  The cards BIOS denotes its settings not what it is called in the device manager.  Some GPU manufacturers use the same ID as another card which is why this can happen since the AMD drivers have the most common IDs in them but not every possible combination.  So it should be working as intended otherwise.

           

          Your card manufacturer may offer drivers that have the correct name attached to the card in their driver INF file or a BIOS update to change the ID for the GPU so check with them.
