Quite a card, that dual R9 Fury. You could easily set everything on medium and use AA, might just look better than High or Ultra. Used to be that high and ultra presets only used bigger textures...
Does it get hot? What are peak GPU temperatures?

It is very cool. Average is 60C in games. 68C in furmark dual gpu, but in games never goes above 65C
I undervolted it, stock clocks, default power limit. I use modded drivers: https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/d...-whql-gcn-legacy-pack-21-10-2-pending.436611/
Now i playing Kingdom Come, reshade mod, fullhd most settings on ultra, hd textures on (2,8-3,6gb vmem used). most of the time 60 fps, little lower in crowded cities, only single card mode because crossfire mode is flickering and not needed for 60 fps limit.
I dont like AA in any game, i use reshade or enb mod sharpen if possible, i dont care the sharp edges.

Single GPU mode performance is between GTX1060-1070, but in crossfire (or multigpu dx12) mode it is better than RTX2080/5700XT. Old card but still good for fullhd (no AA, not all settings on ultra) gaming today. (https://logout.hu/cikk/ati_vs_nvidi..._ii/tesztek_deus_ex_mankind_divided_high.html)
This is in my main rig. It is cool and quiet. Just 2x4Gb vram but a lot of bandwidth.

Not particularly. They did sell quite a few in workstations to specific clients. The Polaris version sold much better because it could deliver the framebuffer needed for animation and real CAD work.

THX that's good to know.....so it means it's not a card that can be used even in retro gaming.....
Depends what RETRO GAMING means to you?

If you think about 2D graphics, like old X-Wing, Wing Commander 1 or 2, Tie Fighter or Doom 1 & 2...then yes!
If you think about more 3D graphics like X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter, Wing Commander 4, Quake 3, Jedi Knight 1 or 2...then no!

Sadly with a damaged proadlizer cap but fully functional!
That's just a plastic cap anyway. If you're worried about an electrical short, get some black enamel paint and paint over the top. It'll be fine.

This is one of those cards I spent awhile trying to get. I loved all the white PCB cards, and very few if any ever made it over to the US. Now it's a normal thing, but back in 2010-2012 they just didn't come over here. I loved the idea of a silver and white PC theme with that era of hardware.

What would have been really cool is if they had done the shroud and whatnot white as well, but we wouldn't get that for a few more years..

Chrome is the CHL8266, IR3550M version
Matte is Volterra
The matte shroud looks like cheap plastic but it's supremely high quality metal texture to the touch, like touching an iphone 6S or laptop

It's a post launch partner sample. Nothing about it is rare or unreleased, as it's quite literally a retail card with the sample sticker stuck on. There's thousands of these around from various partners that requested them. Back about a year after launch there was even a seller that had three crates of them from a single game developer.

Just a reminder we just had this thread cleansed due to eBay listings being spammed in here causing a minor issue. I'd appreciate if this stays on topic and doesn't just become a lounge thread for sharing eBay finds. That should be its own thread.

Nonsense. That ebay listing was an example of an engineering sample, which was shown right on the sticker on the card. See below.

Engineering samples are not common and indeed are rare. It's qualified to be in this thread.

@erek
You keep doing you and don't let others bully you. Your finds on ebay are interesting and fall right in line with the thread topic. We that enjoy those finds know that you are not trying to promote sales, only show examples of rare card finds. I like them and they have been the subject of interesting conversation.

@Fouquin
See PM.

See PM.

Look back through my own posts in the thread at previous examples of partner sampled cards, retail revision silicon with launch day or later firmware onboard. It's a partner sample. There's tens of thousands in circulation.

You've already critically misidentified one specification above, the GPU Tach LED switch exists on all reference boards and is not indicative of an engineering board. Without the yellow sticker these are no different from any off-the-shelf reference Vega 64. In fact the reviewer/integrator-only boards which came with no SKU sticker a few months after launch are likely more rare than these marked cards.

You are not baiting me into an argument. The sticker on the card from that ebay link, which I highlighted in green above, clearly shows that it is an engineering sample. I did not misidentify, misunderstand or misinterpret anything. Engineering samples, no matter how close to retail samples they might be, are still rare cards. It's that simple.
