So aways back I posted a eBay listing in the eBay thread with a video card with 3 manufacturers on the box with practically no info on the card. I tried asking the seller but he had no clue.

As time went on my curiosity got to me, so for $10 I bought one.

Anyone have a clue what the card is? (See attachment) I just bought the card and don't yet have it.
It may be a bitchin fast 3D 2000 🤣

Jokes aside going by the nvidia logo it could be a GeForce 5/6 card. It probably a crappie low end card. 9250, fx5200 or some old sis card

A surprise box 😁

Keen to hear what's inside.

I'm guessing it's going to be a SIS!

It's going to be a piece of paper with a printout of a "3D Graphic" on it. Maybe even a Formula 1 race car. 😀

Cool party poop 🤣
Looking at your box it seems abit different aside from being sun backed. Look at the NVidia logos, they abit different in size. But yeah I'm guessing its a rage card or tnt. Will be used for benching/testing and nothing else. Unless If I get lucky and its a voodoo3 or some other cool card.

Apparently a Rage XL with a single chip. But at least it's PCI 😊 and it's on a black PCB (nice for anything Rage 😜).

Maybe the driver disk might be the most interesting part here.

What's the date code on the PCB btw?
