What's in the box? Has 3 manufacturers on it.

Postby Jade Falcon » 2017-2-27 @ 06:48

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 :lol:

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

Maybe a daughterboard that can mount on several other graphic cards?

Just a generic box for whatever low-end card they wanted to sell at the time.

A surprise box :D

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 :lol:
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 :blush: and it's on a black PCB (nice for anything Rage :P).

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

What's the date code on the PCB btw?

Probably should have shaken it first like a booster pack of magic to gathering or yugioh cards for better luck. :evil:
