The Sapphire box hasn't really changed much from past generations of cards. The top left corner of the box has the Sapphire logo and to the right of that we have a few logos which include Crossfire X and Windows Vista certification. We also have to the right that the card is a Version 2.0 PCI Express one. Of course you don't actually need a PCI-E 2.0 board, you just simply need a PCI Express x16 board which is pretty much every motherboard with PCI Express.
Across the bottom of the box we have the model and above that we have some of the main features. We then have mention of the Ruby ROM and Sapphire including a 2GB pen drive in the package. We also see that the card has 512MB of GDDR3 and a copy of 3DMark06. In the middle of it all we have a tag line that says "Prepare to Dominate ." We intend to!
Turning the box over, we have a bit of a blurb and below that there is mention of what's in the box. To the left we have a list of features the card offers and across the bottom we have a number of awards (which don't include TweakTown, uh hum Sapphire!) and the model along with some of the main features again.
Along with the standard manual, we have a lineup of CDs which include drivers, PowerDVD, 3DMark06 and a few other applications that you may or may not find useful.
With the paperwork out the way, it's time to move onto the cables. There's nothing too out of the ordinary with a DVI to VGA connector, component-out dongle and a Crossfire Connector.
While the package was looking a little boring, what's cool is that Sapphire has included a 2GB pen drive in the package. This is cool as it's something that a lot of people can use as opposed to a game they're not interested in or some software that's not needed.
