Default [lol] AMD/ATI graphics cards name in GPU-Z

Not really a rules updates but I add it here anyway.

- GPU-Z reports Radeon HD 6950 and Radeon HD 6970 as Radeon HD 6900 Series. For example.
=> Some members "don't know" what their graphics card is and submit under both categories or in the wrong one.

- GPU-Z reports a Radeon HD 7970 as a Radeon HD 7970 or Radeon HD 7970 GHz or Radeon HD 8970 or Radeon R9 280X depending on the driver used and vice versa. For example.
=> Some members "don't know" what their graphics card is and submit under multiple categories or in the wrong one.

- GPU-Z could display the correct name of the card but that would mean changing the way GPU-Z works.
=> That would be the best option but it's not an option.

- The only way would be the contact AMD so they fix it in their drivers.
=> Good luck with that...
=> Also not retroactive.

This will partially be solved with the addition of the "Device ID" to db entries, the possibility to search by Device ID and the merge of AMD's rebranded graphics cards.
