Retail Box and BundleOn the front of the box for the ZOTAC AMP! GeForce GTX 550 Ti you can see a mean looking dragon and all the icons for PhysX, OpenGL, HDMI, and 1024MB of DDR5 Memory. ZOTAC also calls out the "ZOTAC BOOT" bundle that is several software packages that help with video encoding, DVD burning, and playback. There is also call outs for the extended warranty and that this is one of ZOTAC's AMP! Edition cards meaning it comes overclocked from the factory.
On the back of the box is more marketing text and a description of SLI and how this graphics card works in SLI. Then there are call outs for DirectX 11 support, improved performance over the GTX 400 series, and all the NVIDIA features such as 3D Vision.
The left side of the box has all the specifications, key features, and minimum system requirements.
The right side of the box has a few more marketing highlights and the part number as well as other bar codes.
The card is inside a bubble pack anti-static sleeve.
