The Package


Sapphire as always have got a good eye for detail on the box and like we see on a few of their other higher end cards, we have a window so we can have a little peak at what's inside before buying.



The box gives us a rundown of all the main information - 256MB of DDR-3 memory, Dual Link DVI ports, HD video output, HDCP, PCI Express and support for Crossfire dual graphics. We can also see that a full version copy of Just Cause comes with the bundle which is a great addition being a current release game.



The back of the box gives us a more detailed run down on what the Radeon X1950GT core has to offer. We also have what is included in the box along with a number of awards that Sapphire has received over the years.



Moving inside we have our standard run of the mill manual and driver CD, we also have a copy of Power DVD and like we saw on the box a full version copy of Just Cause. Sapphire has also included a sticker so you can show off what's inside that beast of yours.



Typical Sapphire fashion we have everything we need to get up and running - included is a PCI Express power connector if your power supply doesn't have 6-pin power already, S-Video and RCA cable out, S-Video to RCA convertor, component out, a couple DVI to VGA connectors and the Crossfire cable required to make use of dual graphics technology.


Sapphire as always have done a fantastic job with the package and it's good to see that they are staying on top of the games situation by including current one and not something that is a few years old.
