I am running three video cards on computer ID 808022. The computer details list "[5] AMD AMD Radeon (TM) R9 390 Series (8192MB) OpenCL: 2.0" when I actually have one R9 390 and two dual GPU Radeon HD 7990s, which should be listed as "[4] AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series (3072MB) OpenCL: 1.2."

I wouldn't want anyone to purchase R9 390s for this project after they see my computer in the top computers listing.

The listing for the onboard Intel graphics is correct.

BOINC always identifies a hosts co-processors with the most capable card installed. Which in your case is the R9 390. So nobody that is familiar with BOINC is confused. To see what actual cards are installed in any host requires looking at a reported WU result stderr.txt file which lists all detected gpus and identifies them correctly.

Milkyway does a good job of identifying the platform and gpu and debugging can be enabled for more info. GPUGrid shows temperatures of gpus as the work units is being processed in addition to other interesting info.. OTOH, Einstein shows errors like "out of paper", "NetBIOS limit exceeded" and "network name not found", that have nothing to do with the real problem.
