Also I remember a prototype radeon card which was a dual card and one half used agp, the second half used the pci slot or something? I was not able to find it on the net. Maybe my memory is cheating me :)

And the 2900XT/XTX are the only AMD cards with 512-bit bus ever since.
The performance sucked but the card looks so beastly huge lol.

Voodoo 5 6000.
The Voodoo 5 6000 never made it to market, due to a severe bug resulting in data corruption on the AGP bus on certain boards, and was limited to AGP 2x. It was thus incompatible with the then-new Pentium 4 motherboards. Later tests proved that the Voodoo 5 6000 outperformed not only the GeForce 2 GTS and ATI Radeon 7200, but also the faster GeForce 2 Ultra and Radeon 7500. In some cases it was shown to compete well with the GeForce 3, trading performance places with the card on various tests. However, the prohibitively high production cost of the card, particularly the 4 chip setup, external power supply and 128 MB of VRAM (a very large amount at the time), would have likely hampered its competitiveness.

still though while it's already necro'd the reason the 2900 didn't perform well was because they put all the effort into the new 5x1 shader ratio while forgetting about the raw HP behind it. It had a 512bit bus but only 16 TMU's! the same amount the 1950XT and XTX had the same amount the X1900XT and XTX had, the same amount X1800XT and XL had, the same amount the X850XT and XT PE had, and the same amount the X800XT had. 3 and half years is a long time to go without adjusting or increasing TMU's or ROP's. On top of that the 5x1 ratio meant the 2900XT only had 64 complex shaders against nvidia's 128 in the 8800GTX, plus the tmu difference 32/16, and the rop difference 24/16 and it's not hard to see why 512bit memory and 320 simple shaders couldn't save ATI.

They still didn't fix it with the 3870, it took the 4870 to come out before they addressed the TMU issue and low complex shader count. By then you could already see AMD's influence regardless of what it did to AMD's cpu's the merger did save ATI from dying due to their own complaisance.

At any rate my last ATI/AMD card was said 2900 XT 512MB it did OC like a monster but I'm glad to see what they've done with the their time and loving my new R9 290. Sure it's got the simple shader and memory bitrate frills, but the TMU's and ROP's are there to drive it. It's like they went back in time and fixed the legacy of the 2900 XT.

Hey, c'mon guys, there are still plenty more of rare GFX out there :) I'm a VGA collector myself and I'm just gonna start with the cards I have owned/own atm and which are not in the thread yet.

First one recent card: The MSI 780 Ti Lightning model. It has not been released and only 12 prototypes have been produced. They have been given to overclockers around the world to break some records, unfortunately though there were still some issues in the VRM section of the PCB.
They later made a redesign to adress these issues. It's called the MSI 780Ti Lightning MOA Edition which made it to a quantity of 26 cards and also wasn't put into the market.

Special interest in this as I'm actually owning the first 780 Ti Lightning, maybe 6 or 7 working cards worldwide and mine has never even been benched or insulated :)

Next one: XFX HD5970 Black Edition Limited. 999 made with 2x2GB vRam. Had one but sold it for good money back in the days. Fun fact: The layout for this card became the reference layout for the HD6990. With a few customizations you can even fit a 6990 water block onto this card (scame screw holes).

Next up: Sapphire HD4850x2. Not too popular, as though the performance was nearly at 4870x2 level.

Another Dual: Powercolor HD3870x2 GDDR4. This was a custom 3870x2 PCB with GDDR4 Ram clocked at 1125MHz instead of GDDR3@900MHz like the reference design. Also I really dig the cooler.

can you submit the bios of your 780 ti lightning please :)

also I would like nice frontal pics of each card so I can add to the database :D

upload the bios of all of these cards it will be appreciated and added to the database asap

also I encourage everyone to use gpu-z to upload your bios, this includes rare gpus and common ones.

still though while it's already necro'd the reason the 2900 didn't perform well was because they put all the effort into the new 5x1 shader ratio while forgetting about the raw HP behind it. It had a 512bit bus but only 16 TMU's! the same amount the 1950XT and XTX had the same amount the X1900XT and XTX had, the same amount X1800XT and XL had, the same amount the X850XT and XT PE had, and the same amount the X800XT had. 3 and half years is a long time to go without adjusting or increasing TMU's or ROP's. On top of that the 5x1 ratio meant the 2900XT only had 64 complex shaders against nvidia's 128 in the 8800GTX, plus the tmu difference 32/16, and the rop difference 24/16 and it's not hard to see why 512bit memory and 320 simple shaders couldn't save ATI.

They still didn't fix it with the 3870, it took the 4870 to come out before they addressed the TMU issue and low complex shader count. By then you could already see AMD's influence regardless of what it did to AMD's cpu's the merger did save ATI from dying due to their own complaisance.

At any rate my last ATI/AMD card was said 2900 XT 512MB it did OC like a monster but I'm glad to see what they've done with the their time and loving my new R9 290. Sure it's got the simple shader and memory bitrate frills, but the TMU's and ROP's are there to drive it. It's like they went back in time and fixed the legacy of the 2900 XT.
Also at the time it had no hardware based resolve MSAA ability built into the pipeline. It had to do it all via shaders which completely crippled it in benchmarks that used any amount of MSAA. IIRC this was fixed when the 3870 launched but it was still lacking absolute grunt as per your post.

I had a 4850x2 when they were still new. I picked it up from Newegg for $150 open box, it died a quite dramatic death.

Galaxy's GTX750Ti Darbee card probably isn't going to get released. It was announced last year and it's a little late to be releasing 700-series GPUs right now.

Second necro of this thread. I loved reading through this, as I'm always looking for rare GPUs to add to the collection.

I do have one to share, which is a little 9800 GT by Sparkle. I don't think they are as rare as some of the cards listed here in the past, but I've never personally seen another one like it.

Card has two outputs: HDMI and DVI-I. The memory onboard is the standard 512MB of Samsung GDDR3. The cooler stands 2-slots tall, and although it overlaps the VRAM it doesn't make contact.

il lsee what I can do to clean this up and add to db :D

can you measure it?

Oops I could have taken a much better picture. Sorry! I just grabbed the phone to snap a quick one without really thinking about setting up the camera.

Length of the card is 192mm, or 7.56in.

Quick edit: I feel a bit dorky. I've got like 80 GPUs and that little 9800 GT is the best I have to add to the database. I guess you guys have really been doing a great job of getting things listed.
