Twintech GeForce GTS 250 1024MB XT OC unboxing
On the next few pages we'll show you some photos. The images were taken at high-resolution and then cropped and scaled down. The camera used was a Canon 450D 12 MegaPixel.
Here we see the packaging. We always show packaging so you can recognize it in the stores. Clean and simple, nothing wrong with that. The components are all well packaged.
- GeForce GTS 250 1024 MB
- Driver CD
- manual / quick install guide
- HDMI->DVI dongle (to make a 2nd DVI port available)
- S/PDIF cable
- 6-pin power converter
A lot can be said, but one thing is a certainty... the custom cooling jumps out and is very visible. It's quite a good looking card really.
Very nice, next to the dual-link DVI connectors an actual HDMI connector. You can hook up two monitors with high resolutions over 2560x1600 pixels with it.
Due to the height of the cooler, the graphics card uses up two slots. Also notice the two SLI fingers to your bottom right. Now typically this card can do up-to 3-way SLI, meaning on selected motherboards you can have three cards rendering your games simultaneously.
However, if you look at the cooler... it's blocking the SLI fingers. There are some aftermarket flexible SLI connectors available though, but the hard silicon / PCB style ones would not fit.
Today here at Guru3D.com, we'll review one of TwinTechs GeForce GTS 250 graphics cards. The TwinTech GeForce GTS 250 XT OC is packed with 1GB of memory, pre-overclocked and comes with a wicked cooler from Arctic Cooling. For a first introduction... that was impressive to see. But will the product be able to keep up with Guru3D's pace in testing? Let's find out.
