Retail Box and Bundle
The retail box for the ASUS ENGTX460 TOP lists the main features that the card comes with and that the card utilizes their Voltage Tweak technology for improved overclocking. ASUS claims that their exclusive Voltage Tweak technology is good for up to a 50% performance increase! We'll have to put that to the test in the overclocking section!
Turning the retail box over, we see even more marketing text in a couple of different languages. The ASUS ENGTX470 retail box isn't lacking any text, so let's take a peek inside. We found a few typos in the print on the back of the box and contacted ASUS to let them know about the mistakes.
When you open the box the presentation and quality of the packing is next to none! ASUS spent a ton of time and thought on the presentation of their product and it really shows.
The ASUS ENGTX460 Top VoltageTweak video card bundle included with the ENGTX460/2DI/1280MD5 graphics card includes a pair of DVI-to-VGA and DVI-to-HDMI adapters, a quick installation guide, a dual 4-pin molex to single 6-pin PCIe power adapter and a drivers CD with the multi-language manual CD. Also also includes a CD case with the bundle. It was fake leather and had a really cheap look and feel though.
When you fired up the driver CD that comes with the card you'll see this GUI that allows you to check out the user manual and install the drivers and utilities if needed.
Taking a closer look at the utility section of the VGA driver disc we can see that it also comes with two utilities and one demo that might come in handy.
