GIGABYTE 9800 GT Zalman Edition - The Package

We pit the newly released 9800 GT from GIGABYTE against the new mid-range king; the HD 4850. How will they fair?

The Package

 

GIGABYTE has started using a new package on their cards, which I have to say looks pretty good. The box is slim and filled with light calming colours. The majority of the box is taken up by a picture of a girl holding a gun, but across the top we can see the GIGABYTE logo along with the NVIDIA one.

Across the bottom of the box we can clearly see the model along with the fact that it comes with 512MB of GDDR3 memory. Towards the middle of the box we see mention of NVIDIA Hybrid Power and the fact that the card also uses a Zalman fan to help keep both noise and temperatures down.

Turning the box over, we go into detail on some of the main features here along with some of the exclusive software that GIGABYTE includes in the package. We also have note of what you need to get SLI up and running.

Inside, we have no games. We simply find ourselves staring at a manual along with the standard driver CD.

The cable department fortunately looks brighter with the standard molex to PCI-E connector, DVI to VGA connectors and S-Video to RCA connector included, along with a DVI to HDMI connector for further measure.
