Nickel-plated copper is copper minus the oxidisation over time.

doesnt it take many years for that to happen,

the copper on outdoor AC units along beaches can still last for years, maybe no more than 10, but when was the last time you used a 10 year old video card.

imo nickel plating is just over doing it, or just plain ol eye candy.

just plain copper (not the soft kind) is all you need imo.

I knew thats why they blacked out parts of the GPU, but I didn't think there would be any identifying markings on the power plugs and PCI-E slot.

Fail on the blacking out, we can still tell from those pics what power plugs it has, also why black out the PCI-E slot connector?

Because it had identifiable markings on the top of the plug. Some venders put their logo there.

Even if this is a fake, I have one question that bothers me most: is there hope, that the manufacturers of graphics cards got rid of that nasty problem with screaming copper coils/conductors I've experienced with a GTX285? Believe me, I will never buy a card with SUCH horror noises: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SAnLxMyapOs
As I'm an user with a silent sys, this is most disturbing. Whatever the speed may be ... and no, you can't get rid of it always when deactivating vsync.

Of course they have. MSI has come up with what it calls "Solid State Chokes" (SSCs), that have low core energy loss and zero noise. Gigabyte uses ferrite core chokes on its UDV graphics cards, manufacturers who use many vGPU phases end up minimizing that noise because there's lesser load on each choke, cards that use digital PWM multiphase inductors have no noise.

+ one to this, I was going to call him out on this too, this is a PCB I've never seen.

I've seen a fair few in my time as well :laugh:




@ Cleorina, don't you think you should maybe wait for reviews before deciding to buy the card?


Won't be getting one of these myself, settled on 5770 now, will grab another one later if I need more power, for now @1ghz its plenty.

I really like the holes in the pcb for the blower fan to get fresh air from the back of the card, tip top idea IMO.
