Ubuntu: AMD GPU PRO detecting wrong GPU + Gnome visual glitches


I've never had any issues with the latest mesa through ppa but still i cannot get the performance boost of amd gpu pro. Amd gpu pro now support my card which is an AMD R7 240.

After install i got stuck on login, but after reinstalling gdm and removing some other bits got it to work, but the proprietary identifies my card as an HD 8500 series card instead of an R7, not to mention gnome desktop is full of visual glitches (wallpaper is sliced with black squares and lines, same with icons on the menu). Is there a way to identify the correct gpu anyhow?
