XFX GeForce 8800 Ultra XXX - Uber Performance, Monster Price Tag!

The Package


Straight away we have an awesome looking box from XFX, they have moved away from the white background to the black here and it gives it a bit more evil and sinister look. It really suits it overall.



You can see that we have a bit of detail on the front of the box but not loads, the model is clearly listed along with the amount of RAM, some logos, a mention that Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter is included and finally that this particular model is the XXX version which means it comes factory overclocked and sits at the very top of the range from XFX.



Turning the box over we have a picture of the card in the top along with the main features on offer from the G80 core and the 8800 Ultra today. There is no mention of any clock speeds anywhere on the front or back and the only thing we can see is that on the sticker we have 675M which is the core clock of the card.



We really think that XFX should have made clear the core, memory and shader clock speeds on the front of the box so people knew just exactly how XXX this card was.



Moving inside the package it is much of the same - we have our normal array of paper work that sits with the driver CD and a full version copy of Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter. While it's nice to see a full version game something a bit more recent would have been nice especially considering the price tag that comes with it. Heck, it would be out of the question to throw in two or three games to help justice the extravagant price tag.



Cables are also very standard, component breakout cable, S-Video and two DVI to VGA connectors. Don't have enough PCI Express power connectors on your power supply? Well, too bad... none are included in the package. With that said though we can understand it this time around, with a card of this caliber if you don't have a power supply that has at least two PCI Express connectors we would be recommending a new power supply without question as chances are your current PSU ain't gonna cut any cheese here.


Overall the box looks great but the package is on the light side, with that said we aren't too sure what we expected from it though we can say probably a little bit more when you look at the price of the thing.
