A few weeks ago, we sent out this tweet:

Then, proud GPU owners’ photos came flooding in—and we went on a nostalgia trip with these “retro GPUs”. Some of them are only a few years old, but it’s still nice to look back at the cards that once seemed mint and brand-new.

Take a look the photos the owners sent of the cards they kept around.

    I still have a HD6990 in my sim racing setup (which I bought new), and a 6950 in my desktop PC. I also have a 5850 in the spares cupboard, in it’s original box. Still have the boxes for the 6990 and 6950 as well. I couldn’t tell you what other ‘oldies’ I have stored away.

    Just switched a problematic graphic card for an old HD 5670 i have nearly for 7 years now….. “vintage” tech, smooth performance, ideal for my needs. The 5670 were stored back in its original package, and went through heavy dust and heavy heat during many years, in shelves, boxes and even 1 year on a trunk of a car….once i removed it from its package and installed in a windows 10 machine, it was in a brand new state, literally, so great package concealment. Works as a charm. Reliable as hell. Great job, ATI. Radeon ftw.
