Are these Intel i350-t4 cards all fake?

I need to purchase an i350-t4 and just wanted to make sure I have this correct. Are all Intel i350-t4 cards without "Delta" embossed on the transformers, or TXC on the crystal, fakes? I just wanted to double check, because if this is the case, then the majority of cards on eBay seem to be fakes.

For example, are these all fakes?:
NEW Intel OEM I350-T4 Ethernet Server Adapter Gigabi 4-Port RJ45 PCI-Express USA | eBay
PCI-Express PCI-E Four RJ45 Gigabit Ports Server Adapter NIC For Intel I350-T4 | eBay
New Four RJ45 Gigabit Ports Server Adapte for Intel I350-T4 PCI-Express PCI-E CA 615284528579 | eBay
PCI-Express PCI-E Four RJ45 Gigabit Ports Server Adapter NIC For Intel I350-T4 615284528579 | eBay

Conversely, if a card has embossed "Delta" and "TXC" on the crystal, can I be fairly certain it's genuine?
For example, these are real?:
Intel THGMP 0THGMP I350-T4 4-Port(RJ-45) Gigabit Ethernet Adapter W/ Std Profile | eBay
NEW DELL INTEL I350-T4 QUAD PORT GIGABIT ETHERNET NETWORK CARD 9YD6K 658759202635 | eBay

If this is indeed the case, I just find it odd that so many people purchase the fake cards without knowing it, or without caring.

Thanks

My understanding is that the majority of those cards being sold as "new" are indeed fakes.
If I would have needed to buy such card today - I would have bought a used OEM branded one from a reputable seller.
Something like 9YD6K 09YD6K DELL INTEL I350-T4 4-PORT GIGABIT SERVER ADAPTER W/ BOTH BRACKET 658759202635 | eBay
Thanks, I probably will just pick up a used Dell card then. It's crazy just how prevalent these fakes actually are (I checked Newegg, Amazon, and Ebay and like 90% of the cards appear to be fakes).
