R7 240 1GB DDR3 is it Fake or Genuine

Question asked by deksa on Jun 11, 2020

Hello,

I need to buy used R7 240 1GB DDR3 Sapphire 299-1E293-000SA.

 

Been searching on the internet for these statistics and have found this exact card only on this russian website and back in the day I had some experience with fake graphic cards.

On the sticker there is a model but when you plug it and run GPUz you realize that the values Core, Memory, Shaders, Chip and other stuff are different. Even the GPUz says FAKE before the model of the GPU in the bottom left corner.

 

This is a "low profile" version on this card but the official lower version of this model has 2 HDMI ports and this one has VGA HDMI and DVI-D and the official has 2GBs of ram and this one has only 1GB of ram. Something is fishy....

 

Here is the official low profile:

Here is the official standard profile (this one is 1GB DDR that matches but the board is bigger):

Sapphire R7 240 1 GB with Boost Specs | TechPowerUp GPU Database 

 

Here is the GPU I want to buy:

Please advise if it's a fake or genuine.

Thanks!
