- The Package
The ABIT X600XT box has a picture of an engine on the front which you would assume is used to symbolize power. Along with this we have the X600XT logo from ATI as well as other important information regarding the card inside, PCI Express, Direct X 9, DVI and so on.
Moving to the back of the box not only do ABIT display the features in more detail but also the advantage of PCI Express over AGP - Sentences like Double Bandwidth vs. AGP and Better Stability can be seen. The middle of the box tells you why ABIT is best with a number of rewards from various media found at the top right.
Included within the package is not only your normal S-Video, S-Video to RCA Adapter and DVI converter but also an RCA cable so in the situation where you don't have S-Video you can get straight into using the TV-Out without having to worry about purchasing another cable.
The package is quite bare as you can see - all you get apart from the above cables is the manual, driver CD as well as a free copy of Cyberlink's Power Cinema. Enough to get you started with your new graphics card but that is all.
- The Card
ABIT are using an orange PCB instead of the normal red that we find on most cards. You can also see below that the cooler comes out onto the memory modules much like the HIS design where they are useful as the cool air will come out the side and cool the complete memory sink properly.
It is disappointing to find that once you turn the card over you find no heatsinks on the back. We will have to see if this causes us problems later when it comes to overclocking the card.
There really is not much to say about the ABIT card as it quite standard and unlike the HIS doesn't come with the Rage Theater chip as the card has no VIVO function. Let's have a quick look at our final card from GeCube and then move onto the benchmarks to see where we stand with these products.
