Packaging & Unboxing
Nvidia’s packaging is extremely efficient and yet somehow still very classy. The GeForce RTX 2080 comes in a box similar to previous generations but with a ridged pattern in grey over most of the front.
The same pattern covers the back and there really isn’t much to see here.
The top of the box is all black with just the model and Nvidia’s GeForce slogan.
After breaking the tape on each side, the top of the box slides up and off the base that holds the card.
The card is displayed nicely in its foam cradle. It does have a clear wrapper over it initially.
Previous generations had just a packet behind the card in a slot, now there is a good sized black box.
You can see here the entire base of the box is filled with a large foam block with perfect cutouts for the card and accessory box.
The accessory box has two small booklets and a DisplayPort to DVI adapter.
The adapter lets you continue to use up to Dual Link DVI-D monitors with your new RTX GPU.
The booklets are a thick support guide and a thinner quick start guide.
