XFX Radeon HD 4890 1GB Video Card Review

Bundle and Test Setup

XFX Radeon HD 4890 1GB

The box that our XFX Radeon HD 4890 came in was small, just enough to keep the video card safe during shipping, but nearly as bulky as most other boxes that we’ve seen.

The art on the box matches the sticker on the video card itself. This is a nice looking combination, which also displays the type of card and the amount of memory that comes with it.

Our bundle includes a number of items important to gamers, including a free copy of H.A.W.X! Besides the standard CD and manual, XFX also included two DVI-VGA adapters, as well as a DVI-HDMI adapter. For those still on an older but still adequate power supply, there are two molex to PCIe power cables. At the bottom of the photo, we have the ever important CrossFireX bridge connector!
