Packaging

Before getting into the card itself, let's take a quick look at how it will ship. I really dig the black and red theme on the box and XFX did something that I wish everyone else would do. They put a picture of the card right on the front of the box. Beyond that they have the XFX logo up top, the RX 480 model in the wrap around stripe, and along the bottom they list a few of AMDs card features. There is also a VR ready sticker on the front to help anyone trying to figure out if the card will work in VR. The back of the box is just about as simple. There is a short feature list down at the bottom along with three sections that talk about key features from XFX. They mention the swappable fans, the load sensing fans, and their thermal tech.

Inside the box, there is an accessory box up on top. Ours didn’t have anything in it but I think normally they come with a warranty card and a driver disk. Below that the card comes wrapped up in a static protective bag and sits in a cardboard cutout. The card also comes with plastic on the backplate and over the fan shroud. They put a red sticker over one of the fans as well to warm people that the fans don’t always spin up, so to not worry if they aren’t on when you first boot your PC.
