    Might have to do with me running Windows 8, but in Windows 7 it did show correctly. GPU is a 5870m so GPU-Z would show it has a "5800 series". Now it shows it as a ATI FirePro M7820. I am running the lastest drivers from AMD for Windows 8 also.

    the "name" field is populated with the name of the card in window device manager. it is controlled by the drivers inf file

    Hmm, then this explains it. Guess a bug in the beta drivers from AMD then?
