Retail Box and Bundle
The retail box for the GeForce GTX 460 SuperClocked 768MB graphics card
is fairly plain with just the EVGA company logo, the product name and a
couple of the features of the card listed on the front.
Turning the retail box over, we find a list of key features and a list of package contents. The features listed on the GeForce GTX 460 SuperClocked include:
- Full Microsoft DirectX 11 Support
- NVIDIA CUDA Technology
- NVIDIA PhysX Technology
- NVIDIA PureVideo HD Technology
- NVIDIA 2-way SLI Ready
- NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround Ready
- PCI Express 2.0 Support
- Dual-link DVI-I and Mini-HDMI 1.4 Outputs
- Dual-Link HDCP Capable
- OpenGL 4.0 Support
Inside the full color box that was designed for retail display is an inner 'box' made from recycled content that had the user guide and sticker on the outside and all the hardware goodies on the inside.
The bundle included with the EVGA GeForce GTX 460 SuperClocked graphics card was not bad. You ger a pair of 6-pin PCIe power adapters, a DVI-to-VGA adapter, a Mini-HDMI to HDMI adapter, a case badge, user guide, quick start guide and of course the driver disc. EVGA was kind enough to put their free overclocking utility called Precision on the driver disc, which was a nice touch. The EVGA Precision software makes overclocking easy for those that want to get even more performance from this already overclocked GeForce GTX 460 GPU (GF104).
Taking a closer look at the VGA driver disc we can see that it also comes with Adobe Acrobat reader, a FRAPS trial, F@H GPU client, Precision overclocking software, DirectX and SLI software, a user's manual and a couple NVIDIA DX11 demos. If the files on the disc still aren't enough for you EVGA has provided four direct links to various EVGA websites that you should visit. One being the product registration page, which is critical if you want to get the card's full two year warranty as if you don't register the product you won't get the full coverage period. EVGA video cards ending with part number TR have a 2-year warranty, while those cards that end in AR have a lifetime warranty.
