Sapphire TOXIC Radeon X1900XTX - No ear muffs required!

The Packaging


The Sapphire X1900XTX is not your normal style box; it's big, funky and comes with a handle.



You can clearly see the TOXIC letters on the front of the box with the "Liquid Cooled X1900XTX" at the bottom making it very clear what we are dealing with here today. The front also shows that one of the main features is an all-in-one liquid cooling solution along side two Dual Link DVI ports and 512MB of DDR3 memory. Using the Sapphire Select program you also have your choice of two full version free games.



There are two small boxes which offer extended information on the card including the main specifications the X1900XTX chip has to offer.



As we mentioned the box also comes with a very funky handle so you can travel home in style with your new TOXIC X1900XTX from Sapphire.



Like most high-end graphics cards, we have a multitude of cables - two DVI to VGA connectors, PCI Express power connector, VIVO (Video In/Video Out) cable, HDTV (Component) out along with a longer S-Video and RCA cable.



Paperwork wise we find a small getting started manual which won't get creased at all thanks to it getting tossed aside by 90% of people.



While there isn't much when it comes to the CDs (with only the Installer CD, PowerDVD and PowerDirector being included), using the Sapphire Select program you can download two full version games out of a number that Sapphire offer. This is a fantastic option and it's extremely surprising to find that no one else has followed in their footsteps in this area.


The overall bundle for the card is pretty run of the mill - a bucket load of cables, a manual, some software and two games makes it a pretty standard bundle for a high-end card. The Sapphire Select program does help make it a lot more attractive though when compared to other companies who seem to have bundled the same game for about three generations of graphics cards.
