Ebay is Selling Fake GTX 960

GTX 960

Holiday season is here and everyone is looking to get deals on popular sites. Games are specially looking for GPUs and games. But on December 9 on ebay GTX 960 4Gb DDR5 was for sale for just 50$ only.

Someone told me about a GTX 960 the other day they found on eBay. And after a quick look I knew something was not good at all. After all a GeForce GTX 960 4GB for $39 is a heck of a deal. Sure, it is an old card. Depending on what games they are playing it might be more than enough.

I have never seen this particular design on a GTX 960. In fact, it reminded me of an older ‘scam’ I’ve seen in the past with a GTX 750 Ti.  I almost ordered one myself as I found tons of them on eBay ranging from $39-$50. Meaning they would be more noticeable than real GTX 960s being sold on eBay. Thankfully the noobs trying to scam people put up a poorly. Photoshopped GPU-Z screen where they simply changed the card name.

They were sort of thin with this one after all they had the name right and even the Vendor ID. Those few things i notice quickly. Memory bandwidth of 57.7GB/s is a far cry from the 112.2GB/s that the GTX 960 pumps out, at least they got the 128 bit bus right.  The biggest offender comes in the form of them leaving the Shader Clock displayed as NVIDIA hasn’t used this since they moved from Fermi. The GTX 960 has 1024 CUDA Cores which is much more than the 192 displayed in the GPU-Z screenshot.

Real Story

what you are really getting for your money is really just a GTS 450.  A card that is weaker the GTX 960 in any way other than being made by NVIDIA.  First generation Fermi even.  Just compare the specs that weren’t edited to the spec page from NVIDIA themselves and you’ll see that they’re the same.
