Looking at the front of the package we can see it's not as big as the HD 5870 box that Sapphire had put together. This isn't uncommon as we tend to find only the highest model from Sapphire carries the larger box. Across the top of the box we have the Sapphire logo while to the right we see that the card comes with 1GB of GDDR5.
Moving down, we've got a picture of a girl and next to that we have the model, in this case the HD 5850 as we mentioned in our intro. Across the bottom we have the ATI logo along with some of the main features the card offers like DirectX 11, EyeFinity, CrossFire X and more.
Turning the box over, we've got a bit of a blurb on the model. Below that is a mention of what's in the box and then a few of the awards that Sapphire has won over the years. On the right side we have a more lengthy run down on the features and what they actually do for you.
Moving inside the box, we can see there isn't anything out of the ordinary. We've got a user manual, Sapphire Sticker and driver CD. As far as cables go we've got two molex to 6-Pin connectors, DVI to VGA connector and a CrossFire connector. Not quite as fancy as the HD 5870 bundle, but still everything we need to get up and running.
