HIS Radeon HD 5850 Turbo Review

Packaging & Initial Impressions

Packaging & Initial Impressions

The HIS Radeon HD 5850 iCooler V Turbo arrived with a fairly obvious theme; CoD Modern Warfare 2. For a limited time, the Radeon HD 5850 will ship with the popular Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 first person shooter to further entice you.

Opening the MW2 themed box reveals a plain and rather typical HIS decorated box. Concealed inside, the first thing you'll see are the graphics card's accessories.

The accessory set isn't exactly huge but it's more than enough to get by. Included you will find a Driver CD, Manual, CrossfireX bridge, DVI->VGA adapter and two double molex to PCI-Express adapters. I for one would be concerned if users out there intend on using graphics cards such as these with such antiquated graphics card.
