Latest GPU-Z detects some fake NVIDIA cards
#1
Lightbulb 
[Image: fake-nvidia-gpuz.jpg]
Quote:The latest version of the popular video card tool GPU-Z includes a new option to detect and highlight fake NVIDIA cards.

Fake video cards appear as more powerful video cards on cursory inspection and scammers sell these for a higher price on marketplaces on the Internet and even in retail stores.

Users may never know that they bought a less-performant GeForce GTS 450 video card instead of the GeForce GTX 1060 that they wanted to buy. Scammers manipulate the BIOS of the video card so that it appears as a different graphics card that is more powerful and thus more expensive.

While GPU-Z's new capabilities may not help prevent purchases of fake video cards, it may very well help users identify fake and do something about it.

Whether you may be able to get your money back or even get the merchant dispelled from a marketplace depends entirely on where you bought it.
