Vvikoo 8600GT Turbo

Graphics Cards

Box ‘n bundle

The Vvikoo box has a very professional look to it. It’s a clean gray colour with some sparse feature listings and the Vvikoo logo, which is several honeycombe shapes of different colours and a wasp that looks a little camp if you ask me. Even though it does look clean, the box does seem a bit empty too; a picture of the card itself would sort that out.

The back of the box is similar in its sparse layout. However, it has some specifications and more features which takes up some of the gray.

The bundle with this card is pretty poor. All you get is a SVideo to component splitter, a Driver CD, a manual and a single DVI to VGA converter. Where’s the other DVI converter? Where’s the games, the free software? I know it sounds childish to complain at the lack of freebies, but it can really perk up a product if it has an interesting and intuitive bundle.

Interestingly, Vvikoo tell me that they were going to bundle Tomb Raider Anniversary with this card, but decided to scrap that idea since they felt the game wasn’t well known enough. Pity.
