Question Unknown video card and mother board

My friend handed a tower over to me the other day. It had a motherboard, a video card, a CD-ROM drive and a floppy drive in it. When I gutted it, I figured out the brands and such of everything except the video card. I'm guessing it's an old one. The black circuit pieces have "hynix" printed on them.
Here's an image of the card from a top-down view:

Any information would be valuable. Oh, and who/what is Hynix, if anyone is aware of them?

If you can put it in a working computer you can run gpuz to determine what card it is.

It is an older agp vid card so not much use unless you have an older agp mb.

I like having one agp card in my arsenal just in case I come across a old machine for troubleshooting purposes. Besides that it is not very useful.

I suppose holding onto it wouldn't be a hassle.
Thank you very much!
