I would like to buy a used Red Rocket, preferably the "green", earlier version of the card. It needs to be in perfect working condition.

what is the significance of the Green Card over the Red? I own both and they work identically. Just curious. (No, Im not selling, sorry, Im looking for 2 more my self)

I had some issues with the red version on my computer. It corrupted some files in 16x PCIe slots so I end up using it in 4x slot. Green card seemed to perform flawlessly in both slots.

I'm following this thread as I'm looking to add a 2nd REDRocket to my dailies system in order to (hopefully!) speed up transcoding times with off-speed 5K Epic material... I must admit, I had no idea there were two different versions of REDRockets. Does anybody know what the differences actually are? Different manufacturers maybe? Do we know which type is newer (red or green)? Is there actually a quantifiable difference between them, or is it all just speculation?
Thanks & Best,

green is older. I have no idea if there are any other differences, other than the color. I remember comparing it and they looked pretty much identical, maybe few little transistors have changed.
