MSI Radeon HD 4890 Cyclone OC 1GB Graphics Card - The Package

MSI spin the HD 4890 into a Cyclone and we see what exactly that means for us and if it's something we should be getting excited about.

The Package

 

Having a look at the front of the box, we can see we've got a bit of a new design to go with the new series. Across the top of the box we have both the MSI and ATI logo. Moving down, the majority of the box is taken up by a picture of the cooler that MSI have chosen to use.

Across the bottom of the box we have mention that the model is overclocked. Below that we have the SuperPipe logo which lets us know about the extra thick heat pipes the card uses. Next to that we have the Military Class logo and on the far right side we have the HD 4890 with some of the main features below that.

Turning the box over, we have some more details about these SuperPipes. Also is a bit more information about the cooler and what exactly Military Class means. While we will talk more about the cooler on the next page, we'll just let you know that Military Class offers higher quality caps, solid state chokes which means no buzzing noises and solid caps to give better power quality and longer lifetime of the product. Across the bottom of the box we've got a bit more information on some of the features and a number of logos like HDMI, PCI Express, MSI and more.

Checking out the bundle inside, there isn't a whole lot going on. We've got two pieces of paperwork that are both quick user guides. In the cable department we've got two duel molex to 6-Pin PCI Express power connectors. While we haven't got a driver CD in the package, we're sure it comes with one and it simply was accidently left out in our bundle.
