Just won a 4850 engineering sample!

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
So AMD came to our campus for recruitment, and I was one of the lucky few to be chosen to have dinner with them last night at a bar. So near the end they had a raffle drawing for a chance to win a 4850 engineering sample, which was the only prize they were giving away... I usually have bad luck with raffle stuff but I guess I got really lucky this time. The guy who gave it to me was like "so...are you going to actually use it?". I replied, "Oh yes, I'm going to have a great time overclocking with it "

So yeah, just thought I'd share the excitement with you guys. I know there are many CPU engineering samples going around but not many GPU engineering samples.

EDIT: Here are the requested pics. The card just looks like a normal 4850 except it has a sticker at the bottom that says "Evaluation Sample"...that's pretty much it. No, I'm not going to pry open the cooler to see what it says on the chip. The last picture includes the AMD recruitment business card, the invitation to dinner, and the raffle ticket that won the card.

Just makes me wonder why they would give you a previous generation sample now that the 58xx series is coming out. Congrats at any rate!
