Packaging and Unboxing
The Strix 1080 Ti comes in an average size box, that most larger graphics cards would come in. It has the Republic of Gamers logo in the top left hand corner. In the center of the box is a depiction of the Strix 1080 Ti. Next to the picture of the card is the Strix logo with the words Gaming Graphics Card just below. The bottom left corner has the Asus logo and the AURA lighting logo. The bottom right corner has the GeForce GTX logo and 1080 Ti product branding. There is also a list of a few of the main features of the GeForce GTX line up. These include NVidia’s GameWorks, VR Works and Ansel.
The rear of the box had a lot of information to take in. Across the top, from left to right, you first see the ROG logo followed by the Strix Gaming Graphics Card Branding. Next is the Nvidia GTX 1080 Ti logo and branding, followed by the mention of a 3-year warranty and the HDMI certification. Below the ROG logo is a breakdown of the ports on the car. Just below that are the cards specifications and a list of key features. To the right of the specifications and features are several pictures. These pictures highlight some of the features of the card. These include their Maxcontact technology, their wing-blade fans, Asus AURA SYNC, Asus Fanconnect II, Auto Extreme Technology, and GPU TWEAK II with Xsplit Gamecaster. There is also the GeForce Experience logo along the bottom of the box.
Both the left and right sides of the box are the same with the ROG eye logo across the top, the Strix logo just below and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti branding across the bottom.
The top of the box has the ROG eye logo and the Strix logo to the left and the GeForce GTX 1080 Ti branding to the right.
The bottom of the box lists the minimum system requirements in several languages. This is also where you find the model and serial numbers.
Inside, there is another box with the Strix logo on the top and on either side of the box. When this box is opened, the card is revealed to be wrapped in an anti-static bag and packed in soft foam. If you’ve read any of my reviews, you know I’m a fan of soft foam, if for one reason, it can be used time and time again and unlike hard foam, it can crack or break. I prefer soft foam packing to any other kind, especially for graphics cards.
The foam has a cut out for the literature and driver disk.
The card and accessories come in anti static bags and packed in soft foam.
