Sapphire Radeon 6850 1GB
Package and Accessories
The Sapphire Radeon 6850 comes in a black and deep crimson-coloured box that sports a typical render of gamer babe Ruby on the front. We see the box mentions the 1GB of GDDR5, the addition of HDMI 1.4a, and perhaps most significantly, the 3D stereoscopic feature. Interesting. Most notably missing is the ATI moniker, now defunct in favour of the AMD branding as mentioned previously.
The rear of the box gives a bit more information about product highlights and each major feature.
Inside the box, Sapphire has included a fairly robust accessory package, with a Quick Installation Guide, a Molex-to-PCIe power cables, DVI-to-VGA and HDMI cables, a CrossFire bridge, and an offer for Sapphire’s Select Club which entitles users to register their card and get bonus games and offers directly from Sapphire. A driver disk was not included because this we’ve received a pre-retail package, but will be included in the full retail box.
Let’s take a closer look now at the Sapphire Radeon 6850 itself.
