Concern about the subvendor of my 5870 GPUs

I bought 2 of the Vapor-X 5870s by Sapphire from, and I usually run GPU-Z to get information about my video cards. There does not seem to be any issues with the cards themselves, they work great, however, one thing that caught my eye is that the video card that is connected to my monitor is displaying ATI (1002) as the subvendorand in the driver version, (Catalyst 10.2) is listed, whereas the other GPU lists Sapphire/PCPartner (174B) as the subvendor and does not have (Catalyst 10.2) listed in the driver version. All the other values listed seem to be consistent with each other. Should I be worried about this?

  1. I doubt it will make a difference as long as the other card is the same model (5870). Subsystem Vender ID # is the first time Ive heard of it. Mine is 1002.
  2. Wow, didn't even realize I got an answer for this. Usually I get an e-mail telling me so. Hmm.. well so far I have not run into any issues, so it would appear to be ok. Hopefully it stays that way.
