WEI displays 6870 when it's a 7950

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've manually deleted all previous WEI tests as well as a thorough removal of drivers for the 6870 before installing my 7950. Any ideas?

Did you previously use a 68xx card? It's strange that it is showing that your GPU has shared memory (11GB).

This is what I'm getting with my 7950:

Yes, I previously had 2 6870's installed. I used TSM106's driver uninstall method as well as using a driver clean up utility before installing my 7950.

Try ATIman Uninstaller. That's what I use when I want to go back to older driver revisions. Though if you aren't getting problems from this, I would just leave it alone. I think the only way to fix it would be to delete the old registers of the 6870s or a reformat of your OS.

That's what I ended up doing. Searching through the registry for all references to Radeon 6800 and changing it to 7900. I'm OCD like that. And I just noticed it has cores listed as 4....odd.

4 modules = 8 "cores"? Not sure what it is supposed to say, but my understanding is that the architecture doesn't use traditional cores like other processors, which could cause some confusion. Just my $0.02

It's 8 cores, but every pair of cores (module) share the same resources. The OS will see it as 8 cores, but perform closer to 4 cores (outside highly parallel programs), similar to Intel's HyperThreading.
