XFX 7300GT

 

XFX is one company focused on providing very high-end products with some massively overclocked products. This time around we are looking at one of the more boring products from the range. Although boring in comparison, still an excellent contender for the low-end market so let's have a closer look.

 

We have a cut down version of what the 7950GX2 box looked like with the big mean looking wolf man going to a fancy dinner where he wears a mask. We can see that the card supports SLI and sports 256MB of DDR2 memory. It also has "Ultra Silent Cooling".

 

 

 

Turning the box over we have our normal extended specs along with a few logos like HDTV, DVI and etc. We have some comparisons of what some of the technology offered by nVidia does when it is enabled along with a few other bits and pieces.

 

 

Opening the box up we don't have too much inside, a leaflet explaining the connections, a quick install guide, brochure with other XFX products and a driver CD. The light packages are quite normal on most low-end graphics cards as they try to save the end user as much money as possible.

 

 

WOW! That does look silent - no hang on "Ultra Silent". There isn't a whole lot to look at with the front of the card thanks to the massive heatsink that covers it. We can clearly see the SLI connector at the top of the card but we can also see two DVI connectors along with our S-Video port. Clock speeds for the XFX 7300GT come in at a very reference 350MHz core and 667MHz memory.
