Sapphire Radeon HD 3870 Ultimate Edition - The Package

If you're looking for a HD 3870 with a difference, the passively cooled Ultimate Edition from Sapphire aims to satisfy.

The Package

 

The front of the box is pretty standard for Sapphire. We have quite a small box that gives us a run down on all the major features of the card. Across the top of the box we can see the brand along with the model and the fact that it's PCI Express.

 

 

A little lower down we see some of the main features like 512MB of GDDR4 memory, HDMI support, PCI-E 2.0 and a copy of 3DMark06 being included. Moving even further down, we can see some ATI logos along with the Vista logo and mention of Power DVD.

 

 

Turning the box over, we have a blurb on the product along with what's inside the box on the right. Towards the bottom we can see a few awards amongst the many that Sapphire has achieved over the years.

 

 

With the box out the way, it's time to move inside the package. We really don't see anything too out of the ordinary with a Molex to PCI Express connector, Crossfire connector, Component dongle, DVI to VGA connector and a DVI to HDMI connector.

 

 

Apart from the cables, we have a User manual, Driver CD, full version copy of 3DMark06 with key, Cyberlink PowerDVD and a Cyberlink DVD suite which has a few other applications.

 

The only disappointing part about the package really is the fact that Sapphire hasn't actually told you what makes this card Ultimate.
