Windows 7: Is this a bug?

Windows 7 Professional 64bit SP1
Is this a bug?

Hi all! I have a problem with VGA's name of my laptop and need your helps.

I'm using Dell Precision M4600 and the correct name of its VGA is ATI FirePro M5950. But after installing AMD High Definition Devices Driver (I found it with DriverEasy), AIDA64, GPU-Z, Speccy,... shows its name is AMD Radeon 6700M Series. I have opened BIOS and checked, the VGA's name still was ATI FirePro M5950. Can anyone explain for me?

Thank so much!

That would be because the FirePro M5950 and the HD 6700 series all use the same GPU core. The reason that it is showing as that in Windows now is because your driver program managed to install the normal AMD driver and not the FirePro driver.
