The packaging is similar to the rest of XFX’s HD 5800 offer – small and sturdy. The box features an almost invisible Black Edition sign, which clearly show that the package holds one mean gaming machine.
You’ll notice a small Aliens vs Predator picture on the front, meaning that XFX has got you covered for instant out-of-the-box gaming.
The back of the box shows XFX HD 5870 Black Edition basic features and lists other specs such as 1GB of GDDR5, HDMI and DisplayPort outs, ATI Eyefinity multi-monitor support, DirectX 11, ATI Stream technology, PCI Express 2.0, CrossfireX support, etc.
HD 5870 Black Edition comes in sturdy dual packaging. The smaller top package holds Aliens vs Predator game, driver CD, installation guide, quick installation guide, DVI-to-VGA adapter, 2x molex-to-6-pin cable adapter and a CrossFire bridge, XFX's "Don't Disturb I'm Gaming" door sign, a neat XFX Black Edition metal badge and a bunch of XFX stickers.
