Chris Hadley / 10 years ago
On the front of the box, the overall design is typical of Zotac; a deep yellow and black colour scheme. To the right there is a window that gives us sneak peek to the beast that lurks within. Next to the window are listed some of the features that the card comes with and along the bottom as key specs such as the memory size, memory interface, and also PhysX and HDMI.
To the left of the box, we get a rundown of the specifications and features of the card. at the bottom are the product barcodes.
To the right is the Nvidia Authorised Board Partner label that has been given to Zotac. Beneath this are 4 reasons to Nsist on Nvidia; Insane Performance, Intense Gaming, Immense Videos and Incredible Photos. At the bottom are the minimum system requirements – these you’ll find listed later in the review – and the label showing that this is GeForce 3D Vision ready.
On the back of the box, there is the Zotac and Nvidia blurbs and then in a little more detail are 3 key features of the card each with a different game image and a description beneath – ‘DirectX 11 done right’, ‘Stunning gaming effects’ and ‘Enter a new dimension’. At the bottom the contents of the box is listed in a number of languages.
Inside the box alongside the card itself is the drivers installation disc, a copy of Prince of Persia – The Forgotten Sands, user’s manual, extended warranty book, mini-HDMI to HDMI adaptor, DVI to VGA adaptor, twin Molex to 6 pin PCI-E cable, twin 6pin PCI-E to 8pin PCI-E cable, large sticker warning about power connections.
