The retail packaging for XFX R7850 1GB Core Edition
video card is rather unique as the card comes in a rectangular box that
is slightly larger than the card itself. The front of the box clearly
shows that this is a PCI Express 3.0 graphics card with 1GB GDDR5
memory. It also shows that this card features Ghost Thermal GPU cooler technology.
The back of the box has a bunch of information, but we noticed a few typos and that some of it is not relevant. For example the box states that you need a power supply with two 6-pin PCI-Express power connectors, which is wrong. Only one is needed for proper operation. It also talks about the XFX XFACTOR GPU cooler design that features quad heatpipes, which is another feature that this card does not have!
Inside the inner box you’ll find a ton of fliers for other XFX
products, a quick install guide, the driver disc and of course the
famous XFX ‘do not disturb’ door hanger that has been included for
years. The only real accessory that you get is a single CrossFireX
bridge interconnect, so not too much to see here.
