I recently bought Gigabyte Radeon 5770 and upon installing the card and the drivers it came with, my Windows XP system is showing Radeon 5700 instead of 5770. The same is shown in Ati Catalyst. I checked the card to see, if they gave me by mistake the wrong card, but on the heatsink it says Radeon 5770.
Can somebody help me out, please ? Should i get the latest drivers or what ?
Intel i7 870
Corsair Dominator DDR3 2x2GB
Gigabyte Radeon 5770
Well, i thought that there was an actual GPU Radeon 5700. In the documentation i got with the graphic card, there were print screens of Catalyst showing "Radeon 5770 Series". Mine said 5700 series, so i thought i got the wrong graphic card.
But now i know, that from 5700 series there are only two GPUs - 5750 and 5770. So i guess its only a matter of different representation.
Im planning on installing Windows 7 today wit the latest MOBO and GPU drivers, so hopefully it will show Radeon 5770.
Your Operating system will show simply Radeon 5700 Series. If you go into GPU-Z (another application) it will say your exact graphics card. Or into System Properties -> Hardware Devices -> Video Output Devices -> it will say your exact card there. Hope I helped!
