Short description of error
[GPU not working/Blender recognizing wrong GPU]

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error
[Blender is not using my GPU for preview playback and even for rendering. I have AMD R7 M440/445 but blender is showing R5 M440, Blender is showing the wrong GPU. I tried to turn off Intel HD GPU and see if it will run my dedicated GPU, Blender is showing a note saying I need to have Open GL 3.3 or higher. So I did a research on both R7 M440/445 and R5 M440. My actual GPU has Open GL 4.6 and the wrong series GPU is above 4.0 I have contacted Microsoft, they took the model of my machine and confirm I have AMD R7 440/445 and I have installed the right GPU driver. My AMD GPU is working fine when I play games. I can confirm as it goes up to 100% in the task manager but for Blender, it's always at 0%. How to fix this?]
