The Package


GeCube have been following the same trend with boxes for quite a while now. We find the ever popular Ruby on the front of the card in a funky position along with our more basic specifications of the card. As you can see the X1900XT comes with 512MB DDR3, Shader Model 3, HDTV output, Dual DVI, VIVO and a copy of Delta Force Xtreme.



Turning the box over we have our extended specifications of the card along with a picture of the connectors available and what exactly they can be used for. We also have a few of the awards that GeCube have won.



With the box out the way we move inside and have a look at the bucket load of cables we receive. Thanks to features like VIVO, HDTV, TV Out we are getting an excellent amount of cables these days, so we can do a lot more with our graphics card then we use to be able to. Included in the package is the Component Out cable for HDTV output, a standard RCA and S-VIDEO cable for people who still want TV Out but don't have a HDTV and our VIVO cable which lets us record to or PC from an external source.


We have also got included in the package a PCI Express power connector for people who don't have a power supply with a connector already on it and 2 x DVI to VGA connectors which is handy considering the card is DUAL DVI and not everyone has made the jump to DVI LCDs yet.



CD and manual wise there isn't a lot to tell, we have got our normal manual which we won't look at along with a copy of PowerDVD and PowerDirector. On the gaming side of things as we mentioned before Delta Force Xtreme is included in the package. It's good to see something other then Counter Strike Condition Zero finally.



Cable wise we have absolutely everything we want but the software is a little lacking for a card that is going to carry quite a high price tag. The benefit is that if current trends are anything to go by the GeCube offering is going to be cheaper then a lot of the other ATI partners and the only thing you are going to be missing is some useless games that you will probably find yourself not installing anyway.
