Same Problem Here
I just bought an Alienware 17 with a AMD Radeon™ R9 M290X with 4GB GDDR5.
As the geek that I am, I look to see the version of the driver, I go to Device Manager and look up the Display Drivers, and see AMD Radeon™ R9 M290X and see it was a Ver 13.x.... And then I went to the www.amd.com website, and see that the R9 M200 drivers is at a version 14.9. So I said to myself, "That needs an upgrade!".
Download, Install, reboot... all seemed quite Normal.
I immediately go to Device Manager again to check the version
AMD Radeon™ HD8970M but the Driver version is 14.301.1001.0
I want AMD to inform me that this is just an incorrent display information. And I have not lost any performance from this new driver install.
BTW, Device Manager and AND Catalyst Control Center - Both - report the Graphics Chipset to be "AMD Radeon™ HD8970M" when it should be "AMD Radeon™ R9 M290X".
@AMD - what should I do? Uninstall or will provide me a fix?
