The R7770’s packaging looks just like what we have seen in the past with XFX cards. It’s a little surprising considering the size difference between the R7770 and the R7970 but there are still a few differences. The most obvious difference would be the model number on the front, but there is also a red S next to the black edition. I’m guessing that stands for the Super in super overclocked. Around back we have the same feature breakdown that we have seen on the other 7000 series cards. Because the R7770 includes the exact same features of its bigger much more expensive brother.
Inside we have the amazing black box, it’s hard not to get excited when you see this box, even when you know what is inside!
First we have all of the R7770’s accessories. You have an HDMI to DVI adapter for those who need two DVI ports, a crossfire bridge cable, DVI to VGA adapter, and the black edition pouch has XFX’s kick ass case badge inside!
The R7770 comes with all kinds of paperwork. You get a quick install guide, warranty information, drive install CD and guide, documentation on XFX power supplies, and a list of adapters available. You also get the do not disturb door hanger that I always love. XFX has placed your cards serial number and info on this card along with the information needed for registering your card. They also give you a spot to put your username and password in case you ever need to talk to them for support, it’s all right in front of you.
After all of that you have the card itself wrapped up inside of a static protectant bag
Let’s not forget that all of the cooler is covered in a thin plastic that you have to remove before using the card.
