ASUS Radeon HD 6870 Video Card Packaging
As we all know, the better a product looks on the shelf, the more likely we are to buy it so a lot of video card
manufacturers go out of their way to design packaging that not only protects the contents but is so visually

the front of the box and it is visually striking with a winged warrior type scene as well as a handful of
informational graphics that let you in on some of the specs of the card inside.
Now, as we flip the box around to the back we get a closer look at some of the features of the ASUS 6870 like the
direct CU cooling solution and the Voltage Tweak.

And a look at the bottom of the box gives us a bit more information regarding the ASUS Radeon HD 6870, as well as
the serial number and the model number.

As you can see, the ASUS Radeon HD 6870 Video Card is packaged very well in a very attractive box and the included
bundle has pretty much everything you will need to connect your new video card to your computer. Here we can see
the users manual, the driver disks, a six pin to two four pin molex adapter, an HDMI to DVI adapter, an analog to
DVI connector and, of course, a Crossfire bridge so that you can connect more than one card.
