    Right I have what is supposed to be a HD 7970 GPU 'installed in X79 mobo', bizarre thing is it has 1x6 pin + 1x8 pin like a 7970, however it shows as Device ID 1002-679A which is a HD 7950, now things get even weirder as it only has 1536 Shaders?

    Wtf is this card? Anybody?

    Dude it's like you bought a 32gb microSD card from a China ebay seller and got in reality a 16gb card when you tested it.

    Looks like a 7950 3gb...

    hum... maybe the factory installed the wrong cooler? The GPU might be the rumored 7930 (from the Catalyst Driver ID listing)
