    My RX 480 8GB has RX 470 4GB F5 BIOS

      I've been trying to find out why every time I install the AMD drivers for my new RX 480 (Completely new PC build) the driver always states my card is a RX 470 with 4GB, despite the card physically saying its an RX 480 with 8GB (I had to double check just in case it was misplaced somehow).

       

      I figured I could just flash the most recent RX 480 BIOS to it, but since the BIOS (and the BIOS flasher) think its a 470, it won't let me (which may or may not be a good thing).

       

      I don't really know what to do from here, other than return it (I'd like to save myself from the drive if I can).

      I had uninstalled drivers, used DDU, and clean installed Windows 10 64-bit several times.

       

      Here is a dump of some system info:
