Hi People,

Ive just picked up an Alienware m17x r5, the graphics card is meant to be an AMD Radeon R9 290x it even says this on the bottom of the machine, but when I look at the properties for the card in the AMD centre it says its a HD8970m, have the cards been changed or are these maybe the same card? Cant find much online only that the speeds etc and memory are the same

Thanks
Matt
