Dear Sir or Madam,

I received and installed my set with the EGPU today.

I installed it with Purge Wrangler. However, it recognizes my external graphics card as a GTX 760 even though it is an R9 290x. What could be the problem?
It is operated via an external monitor.

I'm from Germany and can't speak perfect English, I hope it's not so bad.

I using High Sierra.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Love from
