I recently purchased a grahpics card that looked too good to be true, and obviously it was.
i got a refund, but they didn't want their graphics card back

I need your help to hopefully get it working properly, as most games crashes.

It looks like a gts 450 to me, but i am not sure as it has 1,5 GB VRAM.

Gpuz sais it's a 1060 3GB but im guessing its a modified bios

The numbers on the graphics chip:

12C28433 1207A1
S Taiwan
PFU261.M00

Looks like another GTS450 \ GTX 550 Ti
A quick google search could've saved you those dollars.
Well i got a refund, and obviously the seller had pictures of a real 1060

Gotta love the ingeniosity it takes to sell those POS cards.

Either that, or people are way too gullible.

Take a close up of 1 of the ram chips, it says hynix but its fuzzy, need the code off the ram chip. Clean the die off and make sure you read the die code clearly.

Can we get a picture of the fansink and any white stickers on the back of the card?

I spent few evenings of flashing / editing bioses and reading forums...
The result is good!
I've got the OEM GTS 450 2048 bios from the forum link above and managed to size it down to 1024 G by binary editing the rom file.

Hope this rom will help some of the scammed people to get use of the card.

6 chips typically means 1.5GB...

Also T2 means 2.5GHz Effective rate or 625MHz actuall

I think its called buy a known brand [ evga , sapphire, asus ,ect... ] from a brand authorized , trusted and listed seller ..

them no brand china cards make getting a fake tooo easy and you may get what you pay for and some times less


'' I have an idea how to detect the fakes more easily ''

be sure you post a article on your end results it should be informative and interesting to read for any added info and help in that

In that case have a thanks from me! :toast: and up there ^^^ I know it's not the same but it always gives me a warm feeling when the community gets stuck into a nice slice of help, or at my age does that warm feeling just mean I can't control me bladder :oops:

it don't help them at all . they know all the tricks and quickly learn any new ones that impede them as needed .

all I see is make it cost them more then its worth to do in some way - like non flashable / non reprogrammable [flash once and done kinda thing ] bios chips [what in turn hurts us the honest folks ] now its a cost to remove and find a blank chip to add in . then its not like they change the pcb's or memory and so on anyway so if they had to just may as well make full valid cards to start with and your at a factory manufacturing level now anyway

seems like it all about bios flashing and a plain wrapper generic card used to fool with [ generic china looking cards like his above ]


in the end you only find out after the fact and you got there card and they got your money . and why its a buy a known brand [ evga , sapphire, asus ,ect... ] from a brand authorized , trusted and listed seller that offers there own store rma and some recourse to exchange for satisfaction .

More recent GPU's can't have their IDs changed. The issue exists only with older GPUs from the Fermi generation.

''More recent GPU's can't have their IDs changed. The issue exists only with older GPUs from the Fermi generation'' I understand that , but hide and watch them get around that soon . with the prices of the latest cards [20 series ] that helps them more to invest in making a fake and hold a profit . they will figure it out at the needed time.

first off it china [you have no real protection , just what they [you pay them for ] enforce - 2ed say a msi factory owner or gov official needs some cards for his back ally factory to make knock offs or fakes ? he going to get all he wants or you go to prision or what ever he is empowered to do to you . aand so on from there and then them cards are sold to organized crime in places like Russia , china iran or where ever ,say amd or evga , nvidia aint got a leg to stand on to do a thing about it or prove it or stop it then there filtered out to sellers on sites that don't give a crap outside of there cut or fly by night e-bay sellers ..


so ? like I said a guy cant see this before he buys anyway it a after the fact thing anyway .. see your back to buy a known brand name from a authorized , reputable dealer . not these no brand from china . commie or e-bay fly by night seller

I seen ''fake cards'' sold through like newegg from there 3ed party sellers , but newegg covered it under there 90 day rma / refund in there own good faith policy ..


unless you got some way to see one on the sales page first off well ahead of add to cart its all water under the bridge no matter what you discover or report . the guy got the fake in hand and most times stuck and got hosed

till then its like I said ''they got your money and you got there card '' buyer beware .

Sorry, i've been quite busy the last couple of days.
I haven't tried modding the bios yet, i am afraid of messing up and bricking the gpu.
Even though it literally has the same computing power as a potato, i don't want to just kill it.
I might give it a go in a few days when i have some time.

Guess not. I must’ve misread something.
Well i provided a link that has your specific chip and affirmed its a fake card, 6 ram chips make me think its a 1.5GB card at that. I will try to get you a bios later. I'm worn out at the moment.
