Sapphire decided to send a HD 6970 inside a briefcase. This is the retail box from Sapphire on their 6970 card. The front cover of the briefcase has the Sapphire logo on the top left hand corner, along with a list of the features and what’s in the box on the left side of the box. The Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam game art is in the center with three soldiers.

The front of the briefcase has the Sapphire logo on the upper left hand corner along with game art from Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam. The bottom of the front has the name of the card. The upper right hand corner of the back of the briefcase has the RADEON Graphics AMD and the name of the card the RADEON HD 6970. A list of the main features including DirectX 11, AMD Eyefinity, and PCI Express 2.1 is on the bottom.

Opening the briefcase we find that Sapphire has bundled the card inside a foam enclosure which protects the card during shipping and an anti-static bag. The Driver DVD, the voucher for Battlefield Bad Company 2 Vietnam and the manual are under the foam enclosure. There is a slot where the accessories for the card are and they include mini-DP to DisplayPort adapter, a DVI-I to VGA adapter a long HDMI cable, a DVI-I to VGA adapter, a CrossfireX bridge, a 6-pin to Molex adapter and an 8-pin to 6-pin adapter.
