Windows 7: exchange graphics cards with same processor, different brand ?

exchange graphics cards with same processor, different brand ?

I would like to swap my XFX R7 250 Core Edition Passive card for a Sapphire R7 250 (note - same chip) under W7-64.
Is this likely to work without changing the driver software, or will have have to reinstall/update it?

You should not have to do anything, just swap the cards.
