GPU-Z reporting wrong info.. problem with card?

I have crossfire MSI HD7870 cards(same exact cards) and when I switch the cards at the bottom of GPU-Z im getting different results..


Could this be related to lock up crashes before during or after I play game?

My previous crossfire cards (HD6950's) said the same exact thing for both.

Sometimes it does that I suppose. On my Mobility Radeon 5470/6370, GPU-Z reported 8 ROPs on the chip and 6.0 Gigapixels/second, double what's on the desktop 5450, yet, one version later, it says it has 4 ROPs instead and 3.0 gigapixels/second.

I just take what GPU-Z says with a grain of salt.

go to the manufacturers site, some cards dont use the proper ID system. The site will probably have the monitor software that will work for your card.

It's probably an issue with the software. I wouldn't worry about it.
