A basic bundle should include: user's manual, software CD, DVI-to-VGA adapter, DVI-to-HMDI adapter, component output adapter (TV-out), external power splitter, and a CrossFire bridge. Now let's see what other accessories are bundled with each card.

The bundled power splitters match the number and configuration of corresponding power connectors. The bundle is rather poor, lacking the TV-out adapter and CrossFire bridge.

A basic bundle.

A large glossy cardboard box with all bundled components arranged into compartments. The card itself is in a separate box, so it won't be damaged in transit. Box design is a bit garish. It depicts Palit's mascot, the green frog.

The same box.

PowerColor RADEON HD 4870 PCS 512MB

A traditional vertical package. Inside is a small box with a card in a cardboard compartment. Other components are under the card. The card compartment is of the same size as the card itself, so it won't move while in transit.
