6 + 8 pin GTX 285

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I've seen a few GTX 285s in existence that have a 6 + 8 pin PCIE power connectors. Are these cards nVidia inhouse made for testing purposes or are they made specifically for big PC companies such as Dell and etc.

Can anyone shed a clue?

One such 6-pin + 8-pin GTX285 is Asus' Matrix GTX285 (a member of the ROG series).

Maybe they were early versions.

I mean maybe they made a couple like those and then decided to tweak em a bit and make em take less juice.

However they could have been like engineering samples or smth like that.

They could be GTX 280s with a GTX 285 sticker on them... I know my 9800 GTX+ that BFG sent me for RMA is really a 9800 GTX from opening it up and checking the GPU die.

take the EVGA sticker off your card, underneath are the OEM nVIDIA decals.

this card has a 6 pin and an 8 pin: http://cgi.ebay.com/Nvidia-GeForce-G...item3f05ddc431
are these cards better for overclocking if you do a voltmod? you can't adjust the voltage with software.
