Engineering sample of the unreleased Radeon Pro V7350x2.

Dual Polaris 10, dated early January, 2017. Very similar to the Radeon Pro Duo that launched in April, 2017, but with some slight hardware differences such as a SmartFusion2 M2S010 SoC (purpose currently unknown). Has a single mini-DisplayPort and while completely functional it does have some issues booting as the primary display adapter on my X370 test bench. The Radeon Pro drivers work perfectly once the card is up and running with the help of a secondary bootstrap GPU.

3DMark has no idea what to do with this card and since it can't read the sensors on the card it just errors out in as many ways as possible.

Fascinating how the front GPU seems to have a much less dense fin pitch than the rear one. I wonder why that is. Also, am I right in thinking this is intended for a server-like passive+external fans cooling setup?

Yes, it relies on front facing fans blowing through to the back of the server for cooling. There may of been a duct to direct the airflow.

Correct observation. Since the second GPU is receiving warm air from the first, it has a higher density fin stack to compensate, effectively twice the surface area and thermal mass.

There still is. First picture shows the card assembled with the shroud.

Just found this thread. Glorious. Love the photos of rare or engineering cards! Rarest card I ever had was a 9800gx2.

@erek Hey do you still have your Vega engineering sample? Did you ever check to see if its security features were running? AMD and AIBs had a thing where they could soft toggle the security coprocessor, i'd be interested to see if its enabled or disabled on your Vega. Months ago when I had a Vega and was researching it, I stumbled upon you obtaining the engineering sample on [H], and have been meaning to ask you this question ever since. It had just seemed like you went dark, and I recently stumbled across you actively posting in this thread. Quite the collections you and @Fouquin have btw, I am thoroughly impressed.

It's one of the 1200MHz debug boards that they showed off in demos pretty early on before Vega launched. There are a couple of them about, I know one of the better condition and functional ones is currently in Russia, not sure about this one.

Here's another that popped up recently in private hands: https://www.bilibili.com/read/cv4311668

That 1200 MHz debug board has a resistor on a spot to the direct right of the core that consumer boards dont have. Wonder what it enables/disabled.

Well card works, at least it gives picture from all outputs and it is possible to use it in windows to check internet and so on, but you will have error 43 in control panel and it's not possible to launch something in 3D.

I also flashed it with normal Vega 64 BIOS and card also works, sometime even with drivers without error, but it seems like clocks of retail Vega64 is too much for it and there are some artifacts in win10 menus.

Vega 1.jpg


With blockchain driver there is no error 43 when card is flashed with retail BIOS, but still there are some artifacts on screen and I don't know how to downclock memory below 800MHz, it should be 700MHz with original BIOS.

I have a working HD 7990 and I want to sell it, but I don't know how much it is worth.
Any suggestions about the price? Unfortunately, I don't have any OVP or adapter.

Not the place to ask about pricing. Google around to get a better idea. FWIW, about 120-140 UK pounds.

Not long time ago I was interested if there still exists legendary manufacturer of nVidia graphics cards - Point of View.

Found that they were manufactured GTX 1060 with very unusual cooler solution:



Definitely not as good as regular coolers but very interesting and unusual.

Unfortunately they don't have any RTX 20*0 or GTX 16*0 cards, so probably this is the last their card. RIP to the legend :(
