The retail packaging for Sapphire Radeon HD 7970 OC video card looks pretty nice and has a female military character on the front that will be sure to catch your eye on store shelves. The front of the box clearly lists the key features of this AMD Radeon HD 7970 along with the unique Sapphire features like the fact that this card is overclocked, comes with the TriXX software utility and has dual fans and dual BIOS versions.
On the back of the retail box you have the in-depth details on many of the features for the AMD Radeon 7970, a paragraph by Sapphire telling you this card is the best thing since sliced bread. Notice we have the backside of the woman on the front of the box. Those graphics designers are getting tricky!
Inside the box you'll find the retail bundle that Sapphire includes with the purchase of this card. You'll find a a flier for other Sapphire products, a quick install guide, the driver disc, a CrossFireX bridge interconnect, a DVI-to-VGA adapter, a 4-pin molex to 6-pin PCIe power adapter, a dual 4-pin molex to 8-pin PCIe power adapter, a mini-DisplayPort to DVI adapter, a mini-DisplayPort to HDMI adapter, a HDMI cable and a case badge.
