Closer Look at Diamond Viper HD 2900XT 1024MB GDDR4
Package and Accessories
The graphics card is shipped in a standard-sized box. Its black-and-red color scheme is typical of Diamond Multimedia products. The company’s logo is placed on the left of the red band. The box shows a picture of a cyborg, a popular character among graphics card makers. So, although not a masterpiece of design, this box maintains the corporate style of Diamond Multimedia quite well, making the company’s products easily recognizable on shop shelves.
Besides the graphics card proper, the box contains the following accessories:
- 2 DVI-I-to-D-Sub adapters;
- DVI-I-to-HDMI adapter;
- VIVO splitter;
- YPbPr splitter;
- CrossFire bridge;
- Brief installation guide;
- CD disk with drivers.
We’ve got just a minimum of accessories here. This should be enough, though, for the enthusiast who’s planning to build a CrossFire platform out of two Diamond Viper HD 2900XT 1024MB cards. The design of the box and the availability of free games and bonuses do not generally affect the shopping choice of this category of users.
