Hey all! I recently acquired a Quantum3D Mercury brick from a recycle company and one of the 200SBi's that came with the pack is a very interesting one.
They all are the black PCB versions of the card but they have the heat sinks from the green PCB versions which in itself is very strange.. However one of these cards even has the faster 125MHz EDO memory too!!!! (The other cards have the standard 100MHz EDO which came standard on the earlier versions.)
It's literally the exact specs of a green PCB card but with the black PCB.. VERY weird.. I have searched for a month now almost and I haven't been able to find any information. I have contacted all of my fellow Quantum3D/3DFX hardware collectors and none of them have ever seen a 200SBi like this. These cards all have "546-0014-05" BIOS. Also a very rare trait.
I would guess these boards were produced RIGHT when they were making the switch to the green PCB versions and some of them just so happened to get both traits.
Anyways as of now this is the only 200SBi known in existence with this configuration. If anyone has any information on this card or has one themselves please post here!! I would really really appreciate it! (: Thanks!
I've also included pictures of the cards in the brick for your enjoyment (:
