    That's not an engineering sample, it just has the extra bracket often seen it some Dell systems, and some workstations. It's just an ATi branded card, so it probably wouldn't come with a warranty.

    Also, beating his 6950? Right.

    The bracket is removable; a member and a school friend of mine bought one exactly like that and took it off in about a minute.

    Can this thread be deleted since it has no source and no relevance towards today's hardware?
