Sapphire HD 5670 1GB tested - 2. Package Contents

Review: The cheapest DirectX 11 card up to date










Sapphire always had cool packaging with the accompanying assortment of standard connectors and cables but they often throw in a nice gaming surprise. Apart from excellent content, Sapphire’s packaging usually comes with cool artwork, and this time it’s no exception.

One of the most interesting features on the box is Arctic Cooling’s logo, meaning that Sapphire went a step further and replaced reference cooling with what the box calls a “Cool and Silent” cooler. We’ve already mentioned the HD 5670’s chip and capabilities but let us recap – the card has ATI Eyefinity technology, onboard DisplayPort and HDMI, CrossfireX support, ATI Stream GPU processing support, 1GB of GDDR5, PCI Express 2.0 and DirectX 11 with Shader model 5.

The box is made of recycled paper and is pretty sturdy. The following picture shows the contents – Crossfire connector, driver CD, Sapphire sticker, ArcSoft SimdHD plug-in for IM (which can unfortunately only be used if you install ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre app), short user’s manual, DVI-to-VGA adapter, the HD 5670 graphics card and the HDMI-to-DVI cable. So, Sapphire made sure you’re pretty much set for any scenario that might occur.
