We recieved the card in EVGA's typical packaging. In the box we found a mini-HDMI-to-HDMI cable (about 2m in length), VGA converter, software CD, a large „EVGA Geforce GTX 400 GPUs“ sticker and a small „Powered by EVGA“ sticker.
The card comes with reference dual-slot cooling which does a good job cooling the GF104.
In the center of the cooler is a fan with 11 fins, with the aluminum heatsink and copper heatpipe visible underneath the fan. The fan RPM is controlled via the card's BIOS but we're pretty confident that many users will leave it as it is since the fan is pretty quiet.
EVGA GTX 460 FTW comes with reference set of video outs – two dual-link DVIs and one mini-HDMI out.
Like the reference card, EVGA's GTX 460 FTW requires two 6-pin power connectors.
We already said that this is a reference design, but there is one little difference – passive, black mosfet heatsink, which can be seen on the picture below.
EVGA's GTX 460 FTW 1GB is 2-Way SLI ready as it comes with one SLI connector.
