HIS HD 2900 XT 1GB GDDR4 in Crossfire (Page 2)

The Package

When first looking at the 1GB HD 2900 XT box from HIS one emotion that hit us was shock. Why you ask? The box is small, we don't just mean small for a high-end card (in that case alone it would be considered very small) but for a full size flagship graphics card. The box is also very thin, it actually looks really good, sometimes boxes are just too big and annoying but HIS have managed to cram everything they need into this nice little box.

Getting past the size of the box and simply having a look at the front we can see all the standard information, yes the card is a Radeon HD 2900 XT and this particular model is the brand spanking new 1GB GDDR4 version. We can also see all the other important information on the front of the box like Crossfire, HDMI, Dual Link DVI, Black Box inclusion and a few other important logos.

Turning the box over we have some more features mentioned along with a recap of some of the main features that the card offers. We also have a number of awards across the bottom.

Diving inside the box we have a multi language manual, our Black Box coupon and our bonus HIS DVD. Game wise we have Dungeon Siege which on a HD 2900 XT would run at about 1000FPS. It's actually becoming a bit of a joke including Dungeon Siege, as the release date on it was 2002. Not too sure what's going on in that marketing department but someone has to jump on a new game.

Cable wise is your standard HD 2900 XT line up. VIVO cables, Component out, 2 DVI to VGA connectors and of course the DVI to HDMI connector.

The package is pretty good but the simple fact that HIS continue to include Dungeon Siege over and over and over again is just becoming a joke!
