Can anyone identify this gpu?

Go to solution Solved by 8tg,

A little more research and yeah, it’s likely exactly that, an HP OEM for the OMEN series GTX 1060 3gb

Hello fellow tech enthusiasts, saw this deal online today and the seller claims that the GPU is a Gtx 1080 "oem".  It's an hp obelisk but I can't find a picture match of the card and the cooler on the gpu just looks too janky. 

Can anyone confirm this card? 

 

Thanks!

Just off of power connectors alone it’s not a 1080, a single 6 pin would maybe be on something like a 3gb 1060

 

just ignore that ad, or report it as misleading

They are lying.

 

A 1060, maybe. It looks like this system: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/omen-by-hp-obelisk-gaming-desktop-intel-core-i7-8700-16gb-memory-nvidia-gtx-1060-3gb-1tb-hdd-256gb-ssd-hp-finish-in-shadow-black/6285800.p?skuId=6285800

Friends don't let friends use Userbenchmark. Ban the term "bottleneck." Corps aren't your friends. If the PC does what you need it to do well enough, it's good enough. Don't build the "best" system, build the system that makes you happy.

That cooler looks identical to the HP OEM GTX 1060 3GB. It's definitely not a 1080, even a very cheap one. Also, that picture looks like it was taken inside a store, probably a Best Buy.

 No that looks like an obelisk, I can tell by the lack of standard IO shield and the distinct HP OEM gaming motherboard. The seller has just mislabeled the specs.

It’s just something fishy going on. That pic wasn’t taken in someone’s home (note the reflected lights on the glass), it’s clearly not a 1080, so they either don’t know what they have, are using someone else’s picture, or are knowingly trying to scam people who would think “well it’s an oem card so it _would_ look basic”

Thanks everyone!  It looks like the pictures were from a tech repair station at a local store but that is a sad looking card.

This is taken in some workshop. For sure a scam I think.

I thought so but when I messaged him about it previous he said it's a 1080 and look at the picture.  I ain't seen no 1080 look like that before so the flags went up.

I believe the seller switched the graphics card from a GTX 1080 to a GTX 1060 3 GB. The only other conclusion about the random GPU support bracket is that every HP Omen has a random GPU support bracket for a GPU that does not use it. The cables are also pointing towards the card being replaced. The seller probably sold his GTX 1080 last year and is trying to sell the computer to a gullible person.

I don't think there ever was a 1080. I can find product listings for Obelisk systems with 1060's that look just like this. I also don't see a support bracket in there but it's tough to tell through the reflections and the cable clutter, which is typical of the HP gaming prebuilts I've seen in stores - why they put a window on systems that look so unimpressive inside and do nothing to manage the rats nest is a mystery to me.

As you can see, the cables are managed together. Most OEMs (Including HP) do not want extra cables, since they want it to be bundled together or run exactly to where they planned it to be. Second, the circle on the right shows the bracket. With the perspective that is shown, that piece of metal looks like part of a GPU support bracket for a blower style cooler.

It's much more likely HP just used the same chassis and power supply for every configuration of this line of Obelisk prebuilts. Every HP Omen I've ever seen in a store has bundles of extra cables exactly like this clearly visible. As I alluded to above, the sum total of the thought they gave it seems to be "Gamers like windows in their PC's, right? Who cares what it looks like inside?" 

 

A configuration with a 1080 in it may have existed, although I haven't found one in a quick Google search, but they definitely sold them with 1060 3GB's that look just like that card. 

 

Assuming this system ever had a 1080 in it is assuming a level of knowledge/effort/deceptiveness on the part of the seller I don't think is necessary. The important thing for OP is it definitely does not have a 1080 in it now.

That looks completely like some sort of a store or shop to me. Anyway, that's not important.
