VisionTek RX 480 8GB might be only 4GB?

About a month ago, I went and got an RX 480 8GB from a Microcenter. It excited me so much, but when I launched Hitman today and looked at the run down of my system specs, it said my RX 480 is only 4GB.

 

 

I'm not sure if it's just me being dumb or what, but here's a collection of info on it.

[Screen Resolution Advanced Settings. It DOES say it's 8GB total memory, but not 8GB dedicated video ram, which I thought it was suppose to be.](http://i.imgur.com/hfklaSb.png?1)

 

 

Also, I thought I'd be getting a stable 60FPS. But for most games like HITMAN, Battlefield 1, or Deus Ex Mankind Divided, it dips terribly to around 10-15 FPS. Is that just because of my Athlon X4 630 CPU possibly being a bottleneck? All of the games I play are on low by the way, and I've heard setting the CPU priority to high helps gain frames, is that true?

 

 

Please and thank you for any help!
