The new generation of graphics cards is finally here and we get to test one. The AOpen Aeolus 7800GTX SLI enabled PCI-E has arrived at our labs (two of them to be exact as SLI implies), and we wasted no time testing this beast. So, we've seen how the 7800GTX performs as an SLI enabled card and now we will have a look at its performance as a single graphics card, against some of the other latest model cards such as the ASUS N7800 GTX TOP.
The Aopen 7800GTX retail box is quite impressive as you can see from the above picture. One can clearly discern the PCI-E and SLI logos, a clear indication to the prospective buyer of the slot interface type and SLI feature.
The retail package contains two full games, the Pitfall platform game, and a third person action game named Second Sight.
It also contains the VGA installation drivers and VideoStudio 7 software. The bundled software may be considered as minimal, but it is more than enough to get the VGA card up and working in no time.
There are also some accessories included in the retail package :
- DVI-CRT converter x 2
- Game CD x 2
- User's Guide : AOpen User's Guide x 1
- VGA driver disc : AOpen VGA driver disc x 1
