Who made my card ?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Just thought I'd share this odd little situation that I've been dealing with today.I need to RMA one of my 2900's but I have no idea who made the card at this point. I bought the card from Compusa last June and it was advertised as an "ATI Retail" card and came in a box like this:



I noticed that on the side of the box it says "VisionTek Product". Didn't notice this before I bought it or for the 8 months or so I've had it.

In any case, I called up VisionTek first thing in the morning and their rep told me that my S/N & P/N Does not show up in their system. She said VisionTek's box looks like this:


Advised that I should contact ATI, which I did not to long after. The card did not show up in their system either. After faxing some papers to their RMA Department, I got this little message from their RMA supervisor:

I have contacted the RMA Warranty Service group and they have verified that the product is manufactured by VisionTek with the information as provided:

VisionTek Radeon HD 2900 XT PCI Express

P/N 10xxxxxxxxxx

S/N 18xxxxxxxxxx

Please contact VisionTek to process your warranty request


#&%#&#****?
I'm quite confident that Compusa DID NOT make this card themselves...Funny enough there are no manuals or anything like that inside the box. I know these cards were delayed and you can see that the whole packaging was a real rush job as well.

After this I tried to setup an RMA with VisionTek via e-mail, they're supposed to get back to me in a day or so to let me know if its been approved. At this point I'm just pessimistically crossing my fingers that It will slip through their eligibility check.

Soooo, does anybody on OCN care to take a guess at who made my card? 3DFX, EVGA perhaps ?

I need an RMA # for that. Which they won't give me unless they're sure they made my card.

Sounds like you need to try to bully Visiontek into taking care of it for you. Do you have a picture of it? Whats the cooler look like?

My 8800GTX was made by NVIDIA themselves. It came out of a Dell XPS system.
