The Package

 

While the overall design of the box might not be all the different to other ones out there already, the blue and black color scheme does look great and gives us a nice fresh feel for the overall design. Across the top of the box we have the brand while to the right we see ASUS mention that they received over 3000 awards in 2008.

Along the bottom we have the model, in this case it's the HD 4890 and this particular video card falls into the Formula series. Below this we see some of the main features which include 1GB of GDDR5 memory, Voltage Tweak ability and HDMI support. In the middle of the box we can see that ASUS promise us a 23% cooler card, to the right we can see something that resembles a graphics card, but it doesn't paint a real clear picture.

Turning the box over we again have the brand and model across the top, below that we have a list of the power features that the video card offers in a number of languages. The other main piece to the back of the box is a rundown on some of the exclusive software that comes with the ASUS card. To the right we have a small picture of the card, but again it doesn't paint the best picture.

Looking at the bundle there isn't any surprises - as far as paperwork goes, we've got a speed setup guide. In the CD department we have the manual in a number of languages on one along with another CD that carries the drivers and a number of exclusive ASUS programs that we saw mentioned on the back of the box.

In the cable department we have a component out dongle, DVI to VGA and DVI to HDMI connector, CrossFire connector, dual molex to 6-pin and dual 6-pin to 8-pin connectors.
