GeCube X800 Pro
- The Package
GeCube follows a more traditional design when it comes to their design. GeCube haven't decided to ship the card in a massive box or a nice bag. They have instead simply shipped the card in a black box advertising what would have to be the biggest online game around. If you like Counter Strike or not, there is no denying that the game has a huge following and is still the most popular first person multiplayer game.
The GeCube box is nice - it is extremely simple but gives you all the information you need and with the Counter Terrorist on the front, it looks really stylish.
The back of the box gives you a quick run down on Counter Strike: Condition Zero, here you can also see what is included within the package and quick technical specifications in a multitude of languages.
You get your normal array of cables and manual, we get the driver CD, Power DVD and another full version game on DVD known as Yager. GeCube are one of the first companies we have seen who have chosen to bundle a DVD game, even though it's pretty boring.
Considering GeCube have the smallest box out of the three, it is far from small in the package - two full version games, some DVD software and the driver CD makes for quite a healthy package. Let's have a closer look at the card.
- The Card
This card is really exactly the same as the Power Color card. It follows the reference cooler design, which as we mentioned, is smaller then the cooler on the X800 from ASUS. What was a bit disappointing was the fact that GeCube don't even place a sticker or something identifying that the GeCube brand name.
The card cooler doesn't cover any of the memory chips which as we said isn't really a bad thing as they haven't attempted to cool half and then leave the other half with nothing. It is just a very clean card that follows the trusty ATI reference design.
So, that is the cards out the way. There was no denying that the cards are very similar and we are paying more attention to the package on offer here today. Although, with that said, let's see if there is any performance difference between all three.
