GeCube X1950PRO Champion Edition with "TEC" Cooling

The Package


With Championship Edition being a little more up market than usual, it's nice to see that GeCube have done something more exciting than the standard Ruby box. Nothing against Ruby but honestly babe, we've really seen enough of you lately.



The box is the standard GeCube layout though when it comes to listing details, the model along with main features are ran across the bottom of the box, we can also see that 512MB of DDR-3 memory is included compared to 256MB of a regular X1950PRO. We see that they mention the use of TEC inside and that the card is PCI Express and supports Vista along with HDCP and HDMI.


With the fancy cooling comes a fancy name - Championship Edition is the particular title they have given it and we can see some of the key features are included under the logo - overclockable, fan control, quad heat pipes and dual 8cm ultra silent fans.



Turning the box over we have our normal run down on key features that the X1950PRO offers but also a lot of focus on the card. A number of points show what the TEC cooling method has to offer along with how it works. Clearly one of the most informative boxes we have seen in a while. With the way it all looks, it's clear that if you had money burning a hole in your pocket, you would be ready to buy it by now.



Moving on to the inside of the box, we don't have much, which is quite disappointing. With such a big deal about the product made on the actual box, it would have been nice to see a full version game included in the package. What we do have is the normal array of VGA cables, component, RCA and S-Video and we also have a DVI to HDMI adapter and DVI to VGA adapter. Also included is our normal run of the mill manual, copy of PowerDVD and for some reason a back plate for the video card. The last confuses us a bit but it's included.



Let's now have a closer look at what the actual card offers!
