Having a look at the package, there isn't much as far as differences go when it comes to overall design. Across the top we have the Sapphire logo on one side while on the other side we see mention that the card comes with 1GB of GDDR5. Next to this we also see another sticker that shows us Dirt 2 and below that we have the model, in this case the very important HD 5870.
Below the model we have another game logo, in this case BattleStations Pacific. Moving below that, we see some of the main features which include onboard HDMI and DisplayPort, CrossFire X and more. Across the very bottom we see mention of DirectX 11 and a few other features.
Turning over, we can see a bit of a blurb on the product while below that we have just a few of the 1600 awards that Sapphire has won over the years. On the right side we have a bit of a run down on some of the main features that the HD 5870 offers.
Looking at the paperwork now, we've got a user manual and next to that we have another piece of paper which gives you the ability to get Dirt 2 when it's released in December. We've also got another game. This one's ready to go and is called BattleStations Pacific. Also included is the standard driver CD which we're used to seeing in our bundles.
The cable department is actually pretty light. We've got two molex to 6-Pin PCI Express connectors, a DVI to VGA connector and a CrossFire connector which we unfortunately won't be making use of just yet.
