The Package & Card
As you would expect for a low-end card, there isn't a whole lot to any of it. The box is small and just gives us a bunch of logos across the bottom, a picture of the card chromed along with some of the main benefits of the card.
Turning the box over we go into some more detail on what the card can offer along with a 3DMark06 compare against what its main competition, the NVIDIA 8400 GS and Radeon HD 3450. We also see a star like system which NVIDIA uses to give you an idea on who the card is designed for.
Moving inside the box there isn't a whole lot in the extras department; we have a driver CD, warranty card and DVI to VGA connector.
With the package out the way it's time to move onto the card itself; it doesn't come as any real surprise that there isn't a whole lot to it. The card is only slightly longer than the PCI Express connector and uses active cooling. The card is also of the low profile status.
The I/O side of things is also pretty plain with just a DVI and VGA connector. We don't have any TV-Out connector.
Trying to fire up GPU-Z just resulted in an error due to none of it being able to be recognized, though the core comes in at 625MHz and there is 256MB of GDDR2 memory running at a speed of 500MHz DDR. We have a 64-bit interface, 64nm core, PCI Express 2.0 support, Direct X 10.1 and Open GL 2.1 support.
The card isn't exactly a beast in the specs department, but we will see how it goes against the low-end cards from NVIDIA and AMD.
