Monster ATI Radeon X700 Graphics Card Roundup

ASUS Solution


- The Box and Package



As you can see on the box this particular card is a PRO model and comes with 256MB of DDR3 memory. Across the bottom of the box we can see the features that are on offer - 3 Year Warranty, DVI, Dual VGA, VIVO and a whole lot of other little extras.


The back of the box goes into more detail on the software and the card with a list of what's included in the package including a number of awards that ASUS have received.


The ASUS X700PRO comes with a small package, a speed setup guide, the ATI VIVO box, DVI to VGA connector and two CDs (1 with an electronic manual and the other with a few useful files including drivers, Direct X 9c, temperature monitoring software and a few other ASUS programs).


- A Closer Look



Looking at the front of the card we don't see anything too exciting. We can see that the cooler covers both the memory and the GPU, what is interesting is that the fan is situated at the bottom right set of memory modules as opposed to the GPU. Towards the left of the card we can see the ATI rage theater chip which of course gives us the ability to utilize Video In and Video Out.



Moving to the back of the card we can see that it is extremely plain. One thing that you will notice is that there are no memory sinks which is quite interesting seen they have gone to the trouble to cool the front memory modules.
