Someone Stuck a Graphics Chip Inside Asus X99 Pro Motherboard CPU Socket and Returned it As Broken

Gaming, Media, News

When it comes to the tech savvy community, continuous innovation is the key to success. But for some people, sticking a GPU into a CPU socket on a super expensive motherboard is the way to do that.

In the UK recently, a guy decided it would be a great idea to disassemble a graphics card, take out the graphics processing unit and put it on a CPU motherboard just to see “if it works?”

While some would argue that it was the customer’s own engineering but returning it back to Overclockers UK is a bit too much.

While we can’t say for sure what graphics card that is (possible 1060 – 1080?) the motherboard is an Asus Pro X99 motherboard. Assuming from the motherboard itself, it’s safe to say that the graphics card is a GTx 1080. What do you guys think?

We’re not completely sure whether or not the customer got a refund, we do know that something like this hasn’t really been attempted before.
