Retail Box and Bundle
Now that we have taken a look at the HIS Radeon HD5870 we can look at the packaging and features.
The front of the box is adorned with the sword of King Arthur, the Excalibur. Some of the key features are also noted on the front of the box. Features like HDMI and full 1080p for high definition viewing are among the features listed here.
The back of the box has no shortage of marketing text.
Opening up the box we get the usual accessories included with a new graphics card. One thing stands out to me though. Inside the box was a 7 in 1 tool kit.
While it may not be the worlds most inclusive tool kit. It is a nice little unexpected bonus. It has two sizes of Phillips and bladed screw drivers, a small dust brush for those hard to reach places, a spirit level, and a little LED flash light.
Also included inside of the package is the driver disk, 2 sets of 2 4pin molex to 6pin Pcie power adapters, Crossfire bridge, and a DVI to VGA adapter. Of all the accessories you receive with the HIS Radeon HD5870 the most fun (aside from the HIS Radeon HD5870 itself) is an activation code for Colin McRae: DiRT 2.
Once you lift out the tray that has all the accessories we can see how well HIS packaged and protected the HIS Radeon HD5870.
Lets take a quick look at the set-up we will be using to test all the cards today.
