HIS Radeon HD 5750 iCooler IV Video Card BenchmarkingWed, Dec 30, 2009 - 12:00 AM
Retail Box and Bundle
The front of the HIS Radeon HD5750 box is sharp looking, to say the least. Adorned with a blue background the sword stands out to me, which I suppose is the purpose of the packaging. Aesthetics aside you get to take a look at the card and some of the main features. Supporting full 1080p resolution, HDMI, and having a full 1GB of GDDR5 memory are just a few of the features this card has to offer.
The back of the box has no shortage of marketing text. It does, however, list all the features of the HIS Radeon HD5750. Once you open the packaging you are graced with another box. This box does a fine job of protecting your new investment.
I know that’s not the world’s most exciting photo. I wanted to show you how well HIS packages their products.
Once you open the second box you get to take a look at your new card in all its glory. Well, maybe not all of its glory; it is just sitting there. We’ll get to see how it performs soon enough, though.
Taking a look at the contents of the packaging, we see that you receive the typical molex to pcie 6 pin adapter, driver disk, and a crossfire bridge. You also get a code to activate the highly anticipated Colin McRae DiRT 2.
Inserting the disk containing the drivers brings up a very easy to use screen. The disk comes with the 8.66 version of ATI’s drivers; however, it does have a hotlink to download the latest drivers from ATI. Before we can get into the testing let’s take a quick peek at the system we will be using to test it.
