Diamond Radeon HD 5750 OC Video Card ReviewFri, Jan 29, 2010 - 12:00 AM
Retail Box and Bundle
The retail packaging for the Diamond Radeon HD5750 is eye catching to say the least. It is adorned with one of the rally cars from Colin McRae: DiRT 2 along with the reference image of the DiRT 2 logo. I would be willing to bet that Diamond is emphasizing the DirectX 11 Capabilities of their Radeon HD5750.
The back of the Diamond Radeon HD5750 packaging is filled with more than enough marketing text. Three points they highlight are:
- Expand across three displays with EyeFinity
- Accelerate with ATI Stream technology
- Dominate with DirectX 11
Once opening up the packaging we can start seeing what comes with the Diamond Radeon HD5750. The envelope on top of the foam contains your driver disk, instructions and a coupon for 35 free songs and 1 audiobook from emusic.com.
Once the top layer of foam is removed you get to take a look at your new Diamond Radeon HD5750. One thing bothers me though; I don’t feel that it’s packed very well. It could just be the fact that in Chicago our packages don’t always arrive in the best shape, but I would have like to have seen the card secured in place better.
Aside from the instructions this is your entire bundle. It is a bit lacking. At the minimum I would like to see a 4pin molex to Pcie power adapter included. I was also a bit disappointed that there was no coupon for the game Colin McRae: DiRT 2.
