problem with 6870 registering as a 5800 series.

I am having the same problem as in another post here. I got an HD6870 to crossfire with my current one. It was originally purchased in April, 2013. It shows in CCC as a 5800 chipset. I can not figure how to crossfire it. It does show as a 6870 'subsystem ID', but as a 5800 series chipset. Any solution possible to this, and is this why it won't crossfire?

Also, what is best CCC for crossfire??

Thanks folks

  1. ya google around fake amd cards and check in to that it seemed that i read that you nay have got one of them [ fake HD 6850 (based on HD 6450) ] it was like they take a lower card and jack with the bios on them i wish i could rember more but try that search and it may pop up what brand of card do you got ? if its a name brand like sapphire i would take it up with them good luck and as far aS the ccc goes its part of your driver package with amd.
