I had no knowledge of a manufacturer named "Elephant" before I came across this card. I could only identify it by digging through the driver disk, which was luckily included. Other than that there is no trace of a model or a brand to be found on the card itself. Notable is the reversed orientation of the fan - if this configuration is original. Could be a hint that this is an airflow optimization for a small OEM system were it maybe was installed.
