Do AMD Video cards have unique identifiers?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
This is an odd question, but I was curious as to if modern AMD video cards have unique identifiers?

For example, if two people both had the exact same model of video card, like reference RX 390X's from the same manufacturer, is there anyway to tell a difference between the two cards? Would each of them have a unique code that can be viewed via software or the registry?

Thanks!

No. Serial number is all that matters.

Lol I know where this question is going. Usually they put a sticker on. It will break if removed thus voiding the warranty.

And is the serial number able to be identified via software or the registry or is it only identifiable by the sticker on the card?

From my research, there's no way other way to get the SN than to read what's on the sticker. However, you can get the model number and manufacturer via the PNP Device ID value. So if you want to send a video card to a company, make sure it's from the same manufacturer. I'm pretty sure this value can be modified in the BIOS.
