eVGA e-GeForce FX 5950 Ultra - Page 2 of 8

PACKAGING

eVGA’s gone the fiery red route for box color and has adorned it with NVIDIA’s latest demo personalities Dusk and Vulcan. The features are emblazoned atop the box so you know what you’re getting yourself when you ask the clerk to get you that pretty box in the display. ;)

Front

The backside of the box sports the specs of the 5950 Ultra, as well as mentioning the extras that arrive with the unit. eVGA continues to seal their packaging with their QA stickers to ensure all the contents have remained untouched from the factory. The card’s serial number can also be matched with the box, ensuring the proper unit remains in its box if opened.

Security Check

Opening the box revealed a blue support sticker upon which eVGA informs the customer to immediately contact them in case of any troubles with the card and not return it to the store, hence eliminating the middleman in a troubleshooting situation. The components are tightly packed and secured within the box to eliminate and mishaps that may occur during shipping. I've seen similar transparent packaging being adopted by motherboard manufacturers as well. It's a step up from having the card in a static-proof bag held in place by pieces of cardboard .

Protective Casing


Contents

The card arrives with an S-Video cable as well as a VIVO cable capable of input or output in both S-Video and Composite format. A DVI-to-VGA dongle is also included should you require it. The folder contains the manuals and the various CDs that ship with the e-GeForce FX 5950 Ultra. There’s the obligatory driver CD (which has Detonator Driver Version 52.13 as well as the most recent VIVO drivers and eVGA’s ADM installation software), the Demo CD (GeForce FX demos, America’s Army, Windows Blinds with eVGA skin), Cyberlink PowerDirector Pro 2.5 ME, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon (full version) and NVIDIA’s NVDVD 2.0 player (full version).

Manuals & CDs

Describing a video card with much detail is quite the task, so I’ll let the pictures do the talking.

Yep, that's one finely crafted cooling unit attached to the 5950 Ultra. It looks like the GeForce 5800 Ultra leaf blower... but does it sound like one?
