We often talk about the importance of being environmentally friendly here at OC3D, and it's great to see the XFX packaging being only half the size of regular GPU boxes. With quality foam keeping the card safe there is no need for a sea of cardboard, so it's nice to have packaging that does its job without filling up shipping crates.
The card itself looks fantastic. A minimalist shroud really catches the eye, as does the large XFX logo on the side.
The Double Dissipation cooler looks so different to anything else that it's difficult to not be impressed. No acreage of fins nor bulging heatpipes to be found here. Instead we have something that could almost double as a steelbook DVD. Very easy on the eye.
