Package and Contents
The packaging that MSI chose to use for the 870A Fuzion is a mix of industrial and artistic. MSI has found a good balance with this look; they did not abandon all marketing on the front, though. They have placed quite a big logo on it to make sure you know that this is the first ever AMD product to support dual NVIDIA GPUs.
The back of the box returns to what we all are used to from a motherboard. We have all the graphs and mini-ads to sell us the features of the product. Probably the biggest selling feature of the 870A Fuzion is the ability to run a multi-GPU configuration you want.
As you can see, with the Fuzion technology on the board you can run dual Radeon, dual GeForce or a combination of the two. This new tech completely frees up the way you think about graphics performance.
The back of the box is sort of a compilation of everything that is presented on the front along with some additional information that could sway a potential buyer.
Slightly behind Fuzion we find "military class" components. Now, if you have been in the military this might not sound like a good thing as the military always buys from the lowest bidder. In reality it is simply a name put on a level of component that meets a higher standard for performance and longevity. This includes solid caps (which most boards have) and Hi-c Caps. Features like OC Genie and "Unlock CPU Core" round out the offerings on the 870A Fuzion.
The loot inside is fairly typical; you get SATA cables (two white and two black), a few manuals and two driver discs. One of these is for the regular portions of the board while the other is for the Fuzion component.
