Packaging and Software Bundle
Abit did not include much of a software bundle with the Siluro MX440. Aside from the driver CD, there was no third party software included. The driver CD itself does, however, include a copy of SiluroDVD (Abit's DVD player), 3Deep Color (supposedly corrects lighting, shading and color for all your 2D and 3D games), NVFlash (BIOS flashing utility) and Adobe Acrobat Reader.
I quite liked the SiluroDVD program, simply because it is an easy-to-use DVD player that combines all of the features you would expect to find in a standard player, in addition to some advanced functionality such as full VCD 2.0 support, precision video decoding, a choice of user interfaces, and various video display options. You can play either DVD titles or VCDs (Video CD), and the program automatically determines the type of disc in your drive and uses the correct playback method.
Also included on the driver CD was version 27.20 of nVidia's detonator drivers, and DirectX 8.1. I would have liked to see some games or other software included with the card, however, we must remember that Abit's target audience is the enthusiast market and the people buying their products most probably already own most of the games and software that would be bundled with the card. The smaller software bundle also reduces the overall cost of the product.
To allow you to take advantage of the TV out feature, Abit includes three cables with the package. These are a Mini Din to S-Video and RCA Adapter, an S-Video extended cable, and a Composite (RCA) cable. As well as this, a detailed User's Manual is included that explains how to install the card and all of its software.
