6970 detected as 6800 series in some benchmarks

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
In Heaven 2.5, it is detected correctly as 6900 series. However, some benchmarks like Lost Planet 2 and Call of Juarez are saying it is a 6800 series. CCC detects the 6970 as a 6900 series.

Any idea why this is happening?

No clue but OC detects it as 'None' so looks like nothing is working out for you.

DXDiag detects a 6800 card. GPU-Z detects a 6970 and 6900 series card.

Did you previously have a 6800 series installed? I had a 4870x2 installed before and some benches still show that as does hardware monitor. I posted a thread in the drivers and software section.

I used to have a 6870 in it. I recently had GTX 570 SLI in it. Very strange.

Okay I know how to fix it now. Apparently it is caused by ghost devices in device manager. It is explained here (but don't use Ghostbuster). What you have to do is this:

Quote:
To work around this behavior and display devices when you click Show hidden devices:
  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Command Prompt.
  2. At a command prompt, type the following command , and then press ENTER:set devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1
  3. Type the following command a command prompt, and then press ENTER:start devmgmt.msc
  4. Troubleshoot the devices and drivers in Device Manager.

    NOTE: Click Show hidden devices on the View menu in Device Manager before you can see devices that are not connected to the computer.
  5. When you finish troubleshooting, close Device Manager.
  6. Type exit at the command prompt.

    Note that when you close the command prompt window, Window clears the devmgr_show_nonpresent_devices=1 variable that you set in step 2 and prevents ghosted devices from being displayed when you click Show hidden devices.
So I just uninstall the ghost devices in device manager. 6870 was the first video card I installed on the OS. I had a bunch of other ghosted ATI cards like 5870, 5770, and 6850 too. I did not have any ghosted Nvidia cards (GTX 480, 470, 570).

Be careful not to remove any important devices (unless you know what you are doing) in non-plug and play drivers, system devices, or sound, video and game controllers.

Problem solved I guess.

There haunting you because you sold them like they were objects or something.
The Nvidia ones didn't because you treated them with good drivers. Impossible to be done on anything AMD/ATI.
