Packaging and contents
Gainward prepared a new box design for the new Fermi cards. Now when the company is once again Premium Nvidia partner, Gainward didn’t miss out on the chance to emphasize that on the GTX 470 Golden Sample’s box.
Due to the fact that Nvidia uses mini-HDMI out on reference designs, Gainward ships mini-HDMI cables with its reference cards. In this case however, there was no need for this as the GTX 470 Golden Sample comes with a native HDMI connector. Note that the card doesn't come with a VGA port, but Gainward ships a DVI-to-VGA dongle with the card.
