Packaging

If you saw my previous review of the Sapphire RX 7700 XT PURE in September the packaging for the PURE RX 7900 GRE is going to look familiar. Sapphire has gone with the same bright white background and the circles and dots design all over the front of the box. The only change here is where there were purple accents last time, the PURE RX 7900 GRE has shades of blue. The Sapphire logo in the top right and above the PURE logo were both there and of course, AMDs wrap around. The wrap-around has a large red block on the bottom right corner which has the GPU model name then a line across the bottom that highlights things like Radeon Boost and Anti-Lag. Then they have the card's VRAM capacity in the bottom left. Being an overclocked card, this does have the Overclock sticker on it. The design here looks good, but I do think a nice picture of the card itself would be even better for the front of the packaging. It’s one thing when you order something online, but being able to see what you are getting is a lot easier with pictures on the front. Especially when the back of the box here doesn’t have any pictures as well. In fact, they just have a basic specification listing that lets you know the display connections and system requirements. Card dimensions and clock speeds would be really helpful as well.

Once you pull the outer box off, inside there is a brown box. This provides all of the real structure and strength. Opening this one up has a thick foam panel sitting on top. When you lift that up the documentation is sitting there and then you have the PURE RX 7900 GRE in a static protective bag. The card sits in its own cutout in the thick foam in the bottom of the box. There is also a second slot which has the support bracket. For documentation, you get a basic universal quick installation guide and then a guide for installing the included support bracket. That bracket is a thick metal bracket with a nice matching white finish and the Sapphire logo across it and is adjustable in length but with the PURE RX 7900 GRE why wouldn’t you run it at its full extension for the most support?
