ZOTAC GTX480 Review
ZOTAC have kept to their company colours for the GTX480 box, and it's certainly eye-catching. A clear window enables you to see the behemoth of a heatsink.
Within the box we find all the various things we expect to find, including molex to PCI-E cables and a well written manual.
And here is the card in all its reference glory. As the GTX480 is still very new we're in the "reference cooler" stage of the cycle, but the ZOTAC logo still cuts a dashing figure.
Just in case anyone doubts the need for such a huge hunk of metal, take a look at how busy the back of the card is!
We have two SLI fingers for tri-SLI goodness, should you wish to melt icebergs entirely on your own, the triple display outputs for triple monitor 3D gaming, and the 8 and 6 pin PCI-E power connectors.
The power is actually our first surprise as with all the talk that this takes more power than can be provided by Sellafield we expected dual 8-pins.
Now its time to take a look at the stock cooling....
