Straight away we can see that nothing has really changed over the past few months with the ASUS box design. We can see it has a black and green design for the most part with a picture that stands out; in this case, a warrior on a horse. Across the top of the box we have the ASUS logo with their motto and below that we have mention of a special offer.
Moving down, we have some of the main features mentioned like 1GB GDDR3 and HDMI, while we can also see the model mentioned across the bottom. This time it is of course the TOP variation of the GTX 285.
Turning the box over, we have a rundown of features and recommended system specifications. Half of the box is taken up with information explaining some of the special software that is included with the ASUS card.
Included in the box is our standard driver CD, speed setup guide, HDMI information booklet along with another CD that has a copy of the manual on it.
Also included is a special offer that lets you get 10% off up to five games or CUDA applications. This is done by going to the nZone website and entering the key that is present on the card.
As far as cables go, there is much of the same old present here; component out dongle, dual molex to 6-pin power, DVI to VGA and DVI to HDMI connectors along with a S/PDIF loop-back cable to get sound through the HDMI convertor.
