From the word go the ATOMIC version of the Sapphire HD 4890 is looking epic. As soon as we pulled the box out of our ordinary brown box the card was sent in we were happy to see so much shine. And while I instantly thought how annoying it was going to be to photograph, it was still shiny, oh so shiny.
The front of the box is actually very plain, but elegant at the same time. We've got the ATOMIC logo with the model underneath. The bottom right corner has a Vapor-X logo which is in reference to the cooling solution Sapphire has opted for.
Turning to the back of the box, we have a run down on some of the product highlights while to the right we have some of the main features. We have a picture of a girl and we also see the ATOMIC logo along with the Vapor-X one again.
Moving inside, we've got that typical line up of CDs that Sapphire tends to offer which is always pretty impressive. Apart from the standard driver CD we have a copy of 3DMark Vantage along with some Cyberlink software. We've also got a manual along with a little case sticker which is always a nice touch.
The cable department has all the usual cables. From the right we have molex to 8-pin, molex to 6-pin, S-Video to RCA, component out dongle, DVI to HDMI, DVI to VGA and a Crossfire bridge. As far as extras go Sapphire has chosen to include a HDMI cable which is always nice, as even if you don't need it for the card there's a handy cable to have lying around as a lot of home theater equipment while supporting HDMI doesn't usually to offer a cable, meaning this is one less you have to purchase.
