SAPPHIRE has upped its box art game over the years, with the Nitro R9 380X box featuring a menacing-looking robot - similar to the Transformer franchise. I dig the box, as it provides an easy look at what card you're buying in the top left (the Nitro Radeon R9 380X).
It might not sound like much, but when these things are on a shelf for consumers to look at in a physical store, these little things really go a long way. In the bottom left, SAPPHIRE tells us that the Nitro Radeon R9 380X features a back plate - something that will keep the rear of the card cool, taking heat from the PCB itself - you want that.
The SAPPHIRE Nitro Radeon R9 380X is one of the best looking Radeon R9 380X cards that I've seen, with beautiful styling and two large fans that take considerable heat away from the elaborate heat-pipe system underneath.
The aforementioned back plate, with some SAPPHIRE branding to boot.
On the display output side of things, SAPPHIRE has provided 1 x DisplayPort, 1 x HDMI, and 2 x DVI outputs. I would've preferred more DisplayPort ports, but SAPPHIRE is keeping in line with the likes of AMD's reference design.
The SAPPHIRE Nitro Radeon R9 380X only requires 2 x 6-pin PCIe power connectors.
From this vantage point, we can see the huge heat sink underneath the two fans on the Nitro Radeon R9 380X, which ensures that your card will run at less than 70C under 100% load.
