The Box and Card
The box for the card prominently features the card's actual name and an image of PaLiT's robot frog. Compared to most other manufacturers, I like their robot frog and PaLiT gets bonus points as my girlfriend also loved the frog.
From the top the card doesn't look much larger than a reference HD 4870 X2. That's because the PCB is the same width and length as a reference HD 4870 X2 -- nothing much to see there.
But from the side you can see just how big this card is. That's two slots of heatsink and one slot of fans.
From the backside you can see the glint of the copper heatpipes, the memory and PWM heatsink, and the PCB.
On the other end you see the DVI, VGA, HDMI, and Display ports. Through the vents you can see the glint of the other heatsink which makes you wonder what it looks like.
Here you can see a comparison between a reference HD 4870x2 and PaLiT's Revolution 700 HD 4870x2. The Revolution 700 is the same length and width but 1 slot thicker.
