- The Package


Before we have a look at the inside of the box, let's have a quick look at the exterior. Albatron has produced a nice box which is extremely hard to take a photo off thanks to its glossy coat. We have a picture of nVidia's Dusk demo character on the front and down towards the bottom right corner we have a little bit of information regarding what the card is, features and how much memory.



The back of the box shows us some of the features that the card supports as you can see below. Above this information we have a features list and another picture of Dusk.





Opening the box, you are greeted with the graphics card, pushing this aside we have what pretty much could be considered your usual package. We have the manual, driver CD, one full version game (Duke Nukem: Manhattan), one game pack which comes with a few demos, WinDVD and some cables to use the TV-Out function.


- The Card


First impression of the card isn't too bad. Albatron has chosen to include an attractive looking cooler and some memory sinks both colored gold. You also have your trademark Blue PCB that Albatron has been using for quite a while now; it really does make the card stand out well.



Turning the card over, it is good to see that Albatron has also chosen to include the same memory sinks on the back. There is nothing more annoying than when a company chooses to cool the memory on the front but not the memory on the back.



Moving to the front of the card we see all the normal ports which we are used to including our normal DB15 monitor plug, DVI port and the extremely useful S-Video out port. There is nothing out of the ordinary here as you can see below.



Let's now have a look at what is being offered from PixelView.
