HIS Radeon HD 6850 Turbo Video Card Packaging
These days it seems every video card manufacturer goes out of their way to impress us with awesome looking retail packaging. I even find myself stopping at the store to take a quick look at what the boxes look like. Here we can see that HIS has gone for an ice theme on the packaging for the HIS Radeon HD 6850 Turbo. I think this may have something to do with the fact that it is cooled by an IceQ X GPU cooler; what do you think?
Here on the back of the box we can see a lot of the features of the card listed in a nice graphical format that is very easy to read and understand.
On one side of the box HIS has listed the system requirements to run this video card.
The other side panel shows us the contents of the box as well as the memory size and PCI-E version of the card.
A quick look at the top shows us the memory size again as well as the PCI-E version and, of course, the HIS and IceQ logos.
Flipping the box over to the bottom we can see a little more information about the card in several different languages.
Once we open the outer retail packaging we get a look at another box. This is a gray box with the HIS logo and web URL printed in white on it.
A look inside this box shows us a cardboard tray that holds the bundle of goodies that comes with the video card.
Underneath the cardboard tray we see that the HIS Radeon HD 6850 Turbo is safely protected inside a blister pack type plastic shell.
Here we get a good look at the HIS Radeon HD 6850 Turbo Video Card along with the bundle that is included with the card. The bundle includes the driver disk, the user's manual, a Crossfire bridge, a DVI to VGA adapter and a 4 pin molex to six pin power adapted just in case your power supply doesn't have 6 pin connectors.
As you can see, the HIS Radeon HD 6850 Turbo is packaged very well and comes with a support bundle that allows you to connect the card into most PC setups and has a crossfire bridge that allows you to connect two 6850 cards together for even more power. Now let's get out of here and move on the heart of this article.
