Sapphire Radeon HD 2400 XT + HD 2600 XT

The Packages


Sapphire have opted for a smaller box with the HD 2400 XT which isn't too uncommon considering that this particular model sits at the lower end of the scale when it comes to the new HD 2000 range.



All the information is very standard, the model is clearly displayed across the bottom with mention of PCI Express, Crossfire and support for Windows Vista. We can also see that 256MB of GDDR3 memory is included on the card.



The HD 2600 XT on the other hand uses a larger box with a completely different design. We can see the model across the top along with some of the main features just underneath; 256MB GDDR3, HDMI, HD Audio, DVI-I and a copy of 3DMark06. We can also see that Black Box is included within the package.




The back of the box for both cards is fairly standard, we have product highlights along with what comes included in the box. We also have just a few of the numerous awards that Sapphire has won over the years.




Moving inside the package of the HD 2400 XT we found ourselves with a component-out cable, S-Video to RCA connector, DVI-to-VGA connector and also a DVI-to-HDMI connector. We also have some paperwork, leaflet on the free games on Steam for AMD graphics cards users along with a driver CD.



The HD 2600 XT package is a bit heavier, we have the same component out, S-Video to RCA, DVI-to-VGA and DVI-to-HDMI connector included. We also have a Crossfire bridge included within the package.




Paperwork wise we have a manual, Black Box and another piece on the free games offer on Steam. CD wise is also larger with the standard driver CD included but also a copy of PowerDVD 6 and a full version copy of 3DMark06.
