The Photo Shoot Right, let's undress the product nekked ! This is what the product looks like in a series of photos that we took. All images you see are copyrighted, please do not use or deeplink them. The photos have been taken with a Sony DCS F707 at a high resolution and have been scaled down towards 800x600. You may click on the images to see the image in that resolution. The full images are high-quality, that means file-size can be 100-150 kB.
Full frontal nudity - The 5500 in all her glory.
Backside view, nice clean design, board probably is 100% NVIDIA reference design. I couldn't tell you just yet as NVIDIA did not send out a reference board.
Frontside view of the card. From right to left you'll notice the CRT, SVideo (out ) and DVI-I connectors. Pretty rich featureset for a low-end card.
Here's a nice perspective shot of the card. As you can see, no Molex connector. This product does not have to be hooked up towards your Power Supply Unit which is pretty common these days.
