**Just acquired mystery NVIDIA GPU** - Page 6

post #51 of 67
All the OEMs(HP, Dell, etc.) probably got the 1st production run GTXs, so that's probably why it's a rev1 and visa-versa.

I wonder how well it'll clock?

Well, in real life the 9800GTX costs about $110-120 so you still save; it does look more like a GTX-280 though; I don't think the 9800GTX ever used 6+8 PCI-E connectors [my new GTS 250, a 9800GTX variant uses only one 6-pin connector]

260's use 2 6 pins. (The older ones may have used 6 & 8's.) But no 260 I know of uses a single plug(6 pin).

Bah, looks like I shouldn't have gotten rid of that train ticket to the city afterall!

EDIT: Oh wait, you don't have it with you.

I'm thinking early GTX 260, possibly a before-release version. Or GTX 280 in the same manner.

EDIT 2: Wow, remind me to read threads before I post.

Anyway, that's a nice steal! GTX 280 for $76? WIN!

Time to fold on that bad boy.

Do any of those numbers mean anything?

Could I have possibly gotten an engineering sample of a GTX280
P651 is the model number of the original GTX 260/280 PCB (they shared the same design just as the current GTX 260 and GTX 275 do). Typically Nvidia reference engineering samples will have a "NOT FOR EMC TESTING" sticker on it somewhere. Don't remember from back then, but more recent ones (GTX 295 for instance) used different colored stickers than the production cards.

No, but they give them away to partners, reviewers and the like, and those people will sometimes sell them or give them away.

We've even gotten some in on RMA. People will buy a BFG card, swap the stickers and RMA a failed/broken engineering sample to us. Since we try to give great RMA turnaround, by the time we find out they already have their replacement.

Here are some pics of an example:

Hey, a GTX 280

A GTX 280 that takes less power?

A GTX 280 that is missing a RAM chip?

"Not for EMC testing"

OMG it is really a GTX 260 engineering sample!!!
