I didn't appreciate the rarity of these cards until I was just talking to @T4C Fantasy yesterday. I have a trio of GeForce GTX 460 v2s that nVidia built for RoHS qualification in the early part of 2011. They are all running the same VBIOS and report a 256-bit bus with 1280MB of Hynix VRAM. The stock VBIOS is unstable with any modern drivers, so I flashed one over to a retail VBIOS and it worked flawlessly.

Also yesterday I received my GTX 480 ES. This isn't the cool A1 unicorn I was hoping for, but it's still a heavily cherry-picked A3 with a reported 85% ASIC quality. I might keep it, but chances are I'll resell it and take another chance at getting an older more rare sample in the future.

i would like to thank the person who emailed me these pics, if Anyone has ANY workstation gpu and doesn't mind taking it apart, take a pic of the chip that is seen as the first image and at that very angle and your gpu will be put in the database. All Nvidia workstation cards hold their own chip number, lets make this database the only one on the internet to show them :)

currently we are the largest one in fact xD

So, I have a Quadro FX 580, here is the GPU itself:

Sorry I couldn't clean off the GPU as well as possible, the paste is rather sticky and doesn't want to come out from between the caps there :p

Also, I have this HD 4870 I got from eBay quite some time ago, and it appears to be an engineering sample, as it only has 1 6 pin power connector, the fan and clocks are 100% all the time, and it even has a BIOS that's apparently titled 'test.bin'.

And here are the GPU-z screenshots and a validation link.

thats probably the best looking G96 I've ever seen, even better than the rendered mobile ones nvidia provides, i wish those components weren't so ridiculous
may take me 16 hours to do

I've just found a camera that can take decent photos, and combined with some q-tips, isopropyl alcohol and a few hours, I've a better picture.
However, it isn't as sharp as I'd like it to be, so I can try again if you need a better one.

if you want to i will love to see it, but im glad you took the pic, your other cam though brings out the greens more, unless thats the sun setting or something after the hours, i will however be swapping from the 2 which looks best

Yeah, these are the last photos I can get today as the sun's setting, so it's hard to get any good natural lightning. And anything with any artificial lights seems to not work, for both cameras.

Top is Canon E760D or something and the bottom is the camera on my Samsung Note 3.

Thank you for your time i appreciate all of the effort
I will be working on the gpu tomorrow.

Hey mate, are you at all interested in selling that card? I have been searching for a 7900 GX2 (7900 GTX Duo) for almost 8 years. It is one of my "Holy Grail" cards I've wanted for my collection. I've only ever seen 1 on ebay and it was broken being sold for parts. If you are at all interested in selling it to a serious collector, I am more than happy to give you a fair price for it?

Seriously, when I scrolled past the photos and my brain finally caught up-to what my eyes were seeing my hands started shaking.

I get that way about really obscure engineering samples.

Also, I have this HD 4870 I got from eBay quite some time ago, and it appears to be an engineering sample, as it only has 1 6 pin power connector, the fan and clocks are 100% all the time, and it even has a BIOS that's apparently titled 'test.bin'.
And here are the GPU-z screenshots and a validation link.
https://www.techpowerup.com/gpuz/details/nvyn9

According to the build date in your screenshot it can't be an engineering sample, as the HD4870 were released middle 2008 and your build date there says May 2009.
Also regarding the Clocks, the HD4870 didn't clock down it's RAM because of some flickering issues, which AMD thought would annoy users and thus better have that thing run full steam on the RAM all the time.
Also the GPU clock is a tiny bit lower than it should be on the HD4870 (700Mhz instead of the normal 750Mhz).

According to the infos on Wikipedia it could be an HD4730, maybe even an engineering sample for that, as the 4730 had only 700MHz GPU clock, a single 6pin power connector and 900MHz on the RAM. And it was released June 2009 only by Powercolor.

Only thing: That one should have only half the BUS size for the RAM.

Other possible candidate would be the HD4860, but that had a lower RAM clock. And was released in August only on Asian markets.


All in all I think it's just a card from someone that tinkered with the BIOS.

According to the build date in your screenshot it can't be an engineering sample, as the HD4870 were released middle 2008 and your build date there says May 2009.
Also regarding the Clocks, the HD4870 didn't clock down it's RAM because of some flickering issues, which AMD thought would annoy users and thus better have that thing run full steam on the RAM all the time.
Also the GPU clock is a tiny bit lower than it should be on the HD4870 (700Mhz instead of the normal 750Mhz).

According to the infos on Wikipedia it could be an HD4730, maybe even an engineering sample for that, as the 4730 had only 700MHz GPU clock, a single 6pin power connector and 900MHz on the RAM. And it was released June 2009 only by Powercolor.

Only thing: That one should have only half the BUS size for the RAM.

Other possible candidate would be the HD4860, but that had a lower RAM clock. And was released in August only on Asian markets.


All in all I think it's just a card from someone that tinkered with the BIOS.
The Radeon HD 4860 was also RV790, not RV770. So that's already out of the equation. Also you can have engineering samples that exist after the launch of the official product. Companies work on revising cards if they find an issue, so they'll have samples for the revisions even after the first revision goes to market. For example nVidia's A2 revision GF100 still has samples that were being produced and tested after the A3 revision released to market as the GTX 480. Similarly AMD's Cayman was being sampled well after launch for upcoming revisions used in cards like the 6990.

Says the guy that craves buying nice samples xD
