Galaxy GeForce GTX 295 Single PCB Overclocked Graphics Card - The Package

Galaxy is the first company we've seen move to the single PCB GTX 295 design - but what else have they done, though?

The Package

 

Looking at the box, there isn't anything that we haven't really seen before from Galaxy. We've got a pretty black design that has a picture of a spider and its web taking up one corner of the box and just next to this picture, we can see that there's an overclocked sticker.

On the other side of the box, we have the Galaxy logo sitting at the top and below that we have the model, in this case it's the GTX 295. Below that we can see mention that the video card comes with 1792MB of GDDR3 memory on an 896-bit (dual 448-bit) memory bus. It's a bit disappointing to not know what the clocks are, so often we see companies bump up the memory 50MHz DDR and the core 10MHz and slap on an overclocked sticker. We have faith that Galaxy hasn't done this to us, though.

Turning the box over, we have a bit more detail on what exactly the GTX 200 series of video cards can offer us. We also have a run down on what's needed for TRI-SLI - of course that isn't an option with this product, it seems that Galaxy uses a pretty standard box backing for its GTX 200 series of cards.

As far as box contents go there isn't a whole lot to get excited about, in the paperwork department we have a user manual and quick start guide, alongside these we also have a driver CD.

The cable department isn't much more exciting with a dual molex to 6-pin connector, SPIDF loopback cable, DVI to VGA connector and DVI to HDMI connector all being included.
