The Package


Apart from being a fair bit bigger than the HD 4870 package, it follows a similar style. Across the top of the card we have the Sapphire logo; to the right of that we have some ATI logos and the mention of the card sporting two video processing units as well as being PCI Express v2 compatible.

Across the bottom of the box we have the model. Above that, we have some of the main features. In the middle of the card we have mention of the card coming with 2GB of GDDR5 memory along with some of the software that also comes in the package.

Turning the box over, we have the Sapphire logo across the top and the model and features across the bottom of the box. The middle of the box gives us some more details on the card and just a few of the hundreds of awards that Sapphire has won over the years.

Inside, there isn't much in the way of paperwork with only a manual included. On the CD side of things, though, we have Ruby ROB Volume 1.1, Cyberlink DVD Suite, Cyberlink PowerDVD and a full version copy of 3DMark Vantage.

As far as cables go, we have two power convertors; one for 8-pin and the other for 6-pin along with an S-Video to RCA adapter and a component out dongle. We also have a Crossfire bridge, DVI to VGA connector and DVI to HDMI connector included in the package.
