Accessories:

Included with the Sapphire HD 3870 is an HDTV breakout cable, Crossfire bridge, DVI to HDMI converter, DVI to D-Sub converter, TV-Out converter, and a 4-pin to 6-pin power cable converter. All of these converters allow you to take full advantage of this video card.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Software Bundle and Manual:

One thing that I’ve always liked about Sapphire is that included with the video card are many useful programs. With this HD 3870, Sapphire included CyberLink’s PowerDVD 7 and DVD Suite 5, Futuremark’s 3DMark06, and the installation CD for the video card. However, according to Sapphire's website the HD 3870 that is sold in the USA region is the Lite Retail version which does not include the Half-Life: 2 Black Box coupon or the extra software. 

 

The user manual that is included is very simple to follow and has many different languages, which is good for foreign customers. Also included is a free copy of Steam’s “Black Box” which has games in it such as Portal, Team Fortress 2, and Half-Life 2: Episode Two.

 

It’s now time for us to take apart the video card to get a closer look at the GPU.
