Sapphire presentation, bundle and warranty

Yup, you're allowed to stick your pen into the femme fatale's boot!

The retail package includes the following goodies:

Items Drivers and manual CD
3DMark06 advanced CD
CyberLink PowerDVD 7 OEM (six-channel)
User manual
Microsoft Vista HDMI audio booklet
Valve: The Black Box coupon
1x DVI-VGA adapter

HDTV-out component cable
S-video-to-composite-video adapter
Flexible CrossFire cable

The ULTIMATE edition packs in Valve's Black Box coupon that includes Half Life 2: Episode Two, Team Fortress 2 and Portal. This entitles you to download the games through Steam – Valve’s online platform. We note that Team Fortress 2 can currently be downloaded in beta form only and that Portal is slated to be released on October 10.

The HDMI adapter is more than an afterthought. Choose to route your motherboard's audio through the GPU and you can export both audio and video over a single HDMI cable.


The Sapphire Radeon HD 2600 XT ULTIMATE 256MiB GDDR3 is backed by a two-year warranty. Claims in the first year are handled by retailer, with a UK-based service centre handling the second year.
