Graphics Cards - HIS Radeon X850XT
- In The Box
As we have mentioned the main emphasis of this article is Crossfire and as you would expect we have a Crossfire setup in place. While we would like to be utilizing a Radeon X1800XT Crossfire setup that isn't going to happened thanks to X1800 Master cards being non existent at the moment.
Box wise there isn't anything that we haven't seen before on the front of it. Both boxes are exactly the same except the Master Card has got a sticker over where it says X850XT and now says X850XT Crossfire Edition.
Turning the box over we have exactly the same situation with the boxes being the same except a sticker of the Master Card as opposed to the normal X850XT. The only notable difference between the cards is the connector where the VGA is looks like a DVI one with a lot more pins - this is the connector used to hook both cards up together for Crossfire support.
When it comes to opening the box we also find that both cards are almost identical. Included cable wise we have a PCI Express Power Connector, HDTV out cable, S-Video cable, RCA cable, DVI to VGA connector and RCA to S-Video connector.
The Crossfire Master Card comes with an extra cable that helps carry the signal between the two cards. This method doesn't feel quite as good as nVidia's with the pins being quite fine on the cable. All you need is a bent pin or one to come out and you will no longer be able to make use of Crossfire.
Paperwork wise we have a manual along with 10 hours of absolutely FREE play time on GuildWars. Finally CD wise we have our driver CD along with the ATI bonus DVD which comes with Dungeon Siege and a few extra bits and pieces. We have been seeing this DVD for a while from HIS now.
