The Box and Bundle
We normally don't cover retail boxes in our articles, but ever since XFX pulled the hidden images stunt that landed them in court we have been checking boxes. XFX settled the 'drool' case with EVGA out of court in case any of our readers ever wondered what happened with that situation. Since the card we are looking at today it is the XXX Edition it has the XXX sticker on the front of the box and a sticker showing that the core clock is 678MHz and not the standard 650MHz core clock frequency. Although the box doesn't say it the memory clock has been increased from 970MHz to 986MHz and the shader clock was increased from 1625MHz to 1700MHz!
Inside the box one will find the expected bundle that comes with all brands of video cards. The bundle included with the XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB Alpha Dog includes two DVI-to-VGA adapters, HDTV dongle, an S-Video cable and installation instructions. Also included it the full DVD version of CAPCOM's game title Lost Planet. The Driver disc included NVIDIA Forceware driver version 169.06 and some other software like CoolBits for unlocking overclocking features. The bundle also includes the 'Do Not Disturb' door hanger like the other Alpha Dog series cards.
