You're right. I've had a bid on it since it went up last week. Other than the board and cooler it doesn't look like it's going to be some unicorn performance card or anything.
Well I hope you win the bid and post some interesting pictures and whatever on the thread!

I hope so too, though i have a feeling somebody will want it more than I do and snipe it. As is eBay tradition.

I came across this thread, and saw my 580 Matrix Platinum made the list. Nice! I checked on ebay for a price, and the only Matrix Platinum I saw was a 980Ti. Pretty rare if its not on ebay I guess. Wish I kept the box lol. This is a nice thread, it was good to see some old hardware and remember what I had or what I wanted, or was unobtainable.

Recently got a HD 7970 Matrix Platinum. Figured it's not too rare, but still, it was listed at the start of the thread :p

Too bad it artifacts weirdly, under load only. Occasionally, it'll just blackscreen and never recover when watching a video or messing about on Discord. Dying chip? I've tried underclocking/overvolting it (vCore, vMem, and VDDCI because that's an option in GPU Tweak II), reflashing the original BIOS, trying two different driver versions (19.2.2, 18.2.2) with DDU used between them, and doing a full cleaning (so dusting/repasting and making sure there's good contact). Oh, and swapping my PSU for a higher power one (though it's dedicated to the card only).

This is a horrible share for me because it's unique and less than MSRP for the RTX 2080... this is essentially a 2080 before they even decided on the RTX branding ... the backplate doesn't even specify "RTX 2080" and the LED says GEFORCE GTX ...


i don't feel right giving this away by linking to it, but i don't think i'm going to bite...

I consider a 9800 XT as a rare card, I've only had a modded 9800 Pro R360 @ XT 128MB, never a real 9800 XT. I'd love to have one.

Very neat R9 390X ES with a completely different PCB and cooler design. The cooler is exceptionally effective compared to the blower it would have replaced, especially so with the smaller form factor.

Thanks to @HWC-Cowboy for procuring this card!

Try and find one in the original retail box with matching serials!

Unfortunatley the box is missing the original insert that hold the card in place.

This is the best i could find.

And yes i agree, they are very hard to find : )
