For our review, Asus provided us with their retail version of the EAX1650XT. The card costs around €170 in Europe and US$169.99 in the US, as found on several online stores.

The retail package is complete with printed manual, drivers and of course cables:

The retail package includes:

  • The Asus EAX1650XT card
  • 2x DVI to VGA adapters
  • 1x 7 Pin S-Video to composite cable
  • 1x Power cable
  • 1x CD-ROM with GTI Racing Retail Game
  • 1x CD-ROM with ASUS Utilities
  • 1x CD-ROM with Asus Driver
  • 1x Leather CD carrying case

Looking at the card, it is small in size. It has a small copper air cooling system on board:

On the top of the card are the 2 Crossfire connections:

The card has two DVI-D outputs and one TV-out output:

The card requires that a PCI-E power supply be used in order to supply enough current. You need a PSU with at least a 600W rating with these current VGA cards, especially if you decide to go CrossFire:

On the rear we see the cooler's mounting plate and SN for the VGA card:
