ASUS R9 280X DirectCU II TOP Review

Packaging & Accessories

The outer sleeve of the box features a small, fragmented diagram of the card on a backdrop of metal complete with 'talon' tears. Beneath this we find the main product features of DIGI+, GPU Tweak, 2GB GDDR5 and OC (Overclocked).

The rear of the package goes into greater detail regarding the features in multiple languages. ASUS also show the I/O backplate which is a nice addition.

Removing the sleeve we find a compartmentalised plain Matt black box, identical to their GPU range of the past two years. Not that this is a bad thing because this packaged, while hardly new, is one of the best out there ensuring that the product will reach you in perfect condition.

We mentioned this with the previous review of the GTX760 DirectCU II in that the accessory list is less than appealing with a driver/utility CD and quick start/installation guide along with the obligatory Crossfire bridge. Because most gamers will have at least a DVI port, the omission of a VGA adaptor is forgivable but it would have been nice to have a 6-8 pin PCIe power port adaptor.
