MSI RTX 3050 Gaming X 8G Review
Brandon Dodman / 1 year ago
The front of the box for this card is in the classic MSI style that we’ve come to love. It features a product photo showing the card as you would expect and all of the information about the RTX 3050 GPU core from NVIDIA. The overall design is in a “gamer” style but isn’t overdone, it remains simple enough that it looks good but not so simple that it’s boring.
Listing all of the features and technologies of the product, the back of the box is informational and easy to follow. It shows off more of the card and gives a look at how the RGB lighting will work, as well as information on the fan design, which will turn off when the GPU is at idle.
Once the box is open, you are greeted with a cardboard sleeve containing a quick user guide and promotional material for other MSI products and services, as well as a small comic featuring their mascot; Lucky the Dragon, teaching you about how to upgrade and install a GPU into your system.
With the informational packet out of the way, we can see the GPU sitting in the box, wrapped in an ESD bag to protect it. The card is surrounded by plenty of high quality foam to stop it from being damaged by bumps and drops that may happen as it finds its way to your door.
