Zotac Geforce 1650 appears to be read as TU116 vs TU117

As above:
Code: Select all
fahclient --lspci
VendorID:DeviceID:PCI Bus:PCI Slot:PCI function:Vendor Name:Description
0x10de:0x1f82:1:0:0:NVIDIA Corporation:NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650


If I look up that ID in GPUs.txt, I see:

Code: Select all
0x10de:0x1f82:2:7:TU116 [GeForce GTX 1650] 2984


However, it's not a TU116, it's a TU117:

Both the TU116 and TU117 have been used on GTX 1650 cards, so this may depend on when the card was made. In any case it does not make any functional difference to folding. Anything in the GPUs.txt entry to the right of the last colon is just a text field used for display purposes only.

Quite so, however you'll notice there are 9 different entries for "gtx 1650" in the gpus.txt, with most correctly identifying from the ID (to the left of the last colon) whether it was a TU116 or TU117. This one line seems wrong.

As to usage - I agree F@H doesn't especially care, it's just an error, so OCD-triggering. :D

Also I suppose when updating to a site that tracks GPU performance by chip (IE., https://folding.lar.systems/ or somesuch), the distinction between TU116 and TU117 performance may be important to distinguish, and this confuses that.
