GTX 750ti 2GB FAKE

Seller Note “Doesn’t work”


  • Card powers on, can reach windows, but heavily artefacting.
  • Completely failed a mats memory test.
  • Uncertain if the BIOS is the correct one, this is a problem for these fakes and people sometimes try to fix reflash them, but it can be hard to find the right one.

Analysis TBD

  1. Need to research BIOS otions incase the artefacting is due to bad settings rather than an actual vram or gpu memory controller issue.
  2. If this doesn’t work, it might be possible to replace the vram and/or gpu, but this is for practice only since these fakes are fairly worthless on the market.

The GPU markings are a bit stratched (typical of fakes), but fairly sure it reads: GF106-250-KC-A1

Which is a variant sometimes found in GTS 450 and similar (again very typical of fakes).

The memory is Samsung K4G20325FD-FC03

This indicates 2G of GDDR5, which is more than my other fake that turned out to be a GTS 450 1G (see here for datasheet

Seems failry cheap and easy to get hold of.

This might not be a GTS 450, I cannot find anything on Techpowerup matching this combination, but it is a fake of course.

I need to take a closer look at the BIOS on the card in case there are any clues…
