my 6950 just arrived but..........

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Hi fellow OCN

my card just arrived today, hoping that this card will last me forever [joke].
however, im quite shock to see that the card I received is not like what I imagined. in the website that I purchased,it display the reference design of 6950. Unfortunately, I got this card

I dont know what to do now. I notice there is a bios switch. However I havent tried unlocking it yet because I have an exam after this. maybe later in the evening Ill try it (damn i cant concentrate on my exam now). If you were at my side, what will you do? return it and get another 6950 (need to pay 10pound shipping price) or stay with this?

is vtx3d a good brand?

thanks

Where did you buy it from? Never just trust a random internet store.

Should have went with the Egg IMO.

He lives in Europe, he can't use newegg.

@OP: Return it and demand a refund. I've never even seen that brand before.

I had two VTX3D 6850s. There's nothing wrong with it. Made by the same company that does Powercolor and Club3D

Or try to find a PCS++ card

Also could try the Twin Frozr III.

Looks like Powercolor's box and PCB designs.

edit: Jeez, was I the last guy to hit Submit in the last 10 seconds?

VTX3d used to make reference design but they changed it secretly. the website must of been slow to update it.

They are very dodgy company. they changed there card without a annoucment

It used to look like this]
