You would have a better chance of a reply if you posted in the correct/appropriate forum..which is > Drivers & Software
The R9 290x is part of the R9 200 series. So there is no issue.
WELCOME TO THE GENERAL DISCUSSION FORUM
Use this space to post questions and discussions related to AMD that do not fit into the other forums.
For example; game promotions, benchmark scores, etc.
Well, there is an issue. Maybe for you it isn't an issue, but for my specific case, it is.
There is an application that I run that refuses to start and gives me an error saying "the minimum requirement for this application is R9 290X". There is an issue, therefore.
With my GTX 1080, it says GTX 1080 on device manager - not GTX 10 series.
It's not a driver issue, therefore this is indeed the correct/appropriate forum. This issue is regarding something else.
Why not start with that?
The R9 290x is part of the R9 200 series. So there is no issue. It's the way AMD groups the drivers.
All I wanted to do was to change the name of the graphics card on device manager. Does anyone know how to do such thing on Windows 10?
And please, don't give me these idiotic patronising answers telling me "how to ask a question".
I wish I had this problem in Linux. Linux users are much more intelligent and can actually answer questions.

This is perfectly normal..as mentioned. There is no issue or problem. What are you going on about? See identical card below.
How is this "This is causing me problems with certain games and is really annoying me."...what a crock.
If you are one of the intelligent Linux users (doesn't sound like it, but..)...you should be able to figure this out.
