Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 Toxic Video Card Packaging
Alright, let's go ahead and take a look at the packaging for the Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 Toxic Video Card. Packaging is just as important as the performance of the card in a retail aspect, because the prettier and more eye catching the package, the more attention it is going to draw for a potential customer. As far as the looks of the packaging the Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 Toxic Video Card hits it out of the park. Here on the front of the box we can see that there is a female warrior aiming a gun at us along with some of the more important features of the card.
Flipping the box around to the back we can see that it follows the same design as the front of the box and it gives us more information about the card inside, a paragraph letting us know the "Highlights" of the card, and features some of the awards it has won.
Moving on to the sides of the box, both sides are pretty much the same and just feature the Sapphire logo and the model name of the card.
A quick look at the top of the box shows us the AMD Radeon logo and the model of the video card inside. It is very similar to the sides.
Now for the last stop; on the outside of the box we can see that the bottom gives us some of the specs of the Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 Toxic Video Card and the UPC label is located there as well.
Once we get inside the outer box we are greeted with yet another box, but this one has no graphics and is just a plain brown cardboard box.
Opening this box we see that our Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 Toxic Video Card is sitting there in a molded tray safely inside of its static free bag.
Pulling the tray out reveals that there is yet another plain brown cardboard box underneath that. This box is much thinner than the previous one.
Inside of this box are all of the goodies that are part of the bundle that come with this video card.
The bundle included with the Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 Toxic Video Card is one of the more complete ones as it actually contains an HDMI 1.4a cable. I mean, come on; how many video cards have you bought that give you an HDMI cable? Not only does it contain the HDMI cable, but there is also the driver disk, the user manual, a display port adapter, a crossfire bridge, two 4pin molex to six pin adapters and a DVI to analog video adapter. Pretty complete, I would say.
