Hi, I bought a lenovo y40-70 refurbished on amazon about a month ago, the first thing I did when it arrived was checking the specs, and something that catched my atention was the dedicated graphics card R9 M275X, it says that have DDR3 memory instead of GDDR5.

This really bothers me becouse it cuts the performance of the GPU by half, and I checked every single techpage (including AMD) finding info about this GPU and all says that the graphics memory type is GDDR5.

So, why is it?, a driver issue?, false advertising?.
