Packaging & ContentsWe received just the card from AMD, without package or any accessories. Retail cards will of course include the appropriate accessories like manual, driver CD and adapter cables.
Like the HD 4850, AMD's HD 4830 uses a single slot cooling solution. Actually, the cooler is the same as on the reference design HD 4850.
The card has two DVI ports which is the standard output configuration nowadays. If you need a VGA port you can use the included DVI adapter. When using a HDMI adapter (included as well), you will also have access to HDMI+HDCP+Audio, which allows easy setup of a media PC. AMD has integrated a Realtek 7.1 audio device inside the GPU which means that the sound card's HDMI output shows up as sound device in Windows. In my opinion this is an easier solution than on NVIDIA's cards where you have to route an audio cable from your motherboard to the VGA card.
Here are the front and the back of the card, high-res versions are also available (front, back). If you choose to use these images for voltmods etc, please include a link back to this site or let us post your article.
