Box & Bundle
The box provides adequate protection despite its small dimensions since the graphics card has a small footprint.
The Sapphire Pulse RX 7700 XT comes in a larger box with vivid graphics.
The dimensions are compact for such a powerful card. With 267mm in length, most chassis will accommodate it without any problems. The build quality looks and is high, but I am a bit skeptical about the cooling system’s small dimensions, given the relatively high GPU’s TDP. The power is transferred to the GPU through a pair of 6+2 pin PCIe connectors. Finally, there are three DP 2.1 ports and one HDMI 2.1a.
Sapphire’s implementation has larger dimensions than AMD’s reference RX 7800 XT card, but its weight is lower, meaning that its cooling system weighs less. This card also uses a pair of 6+2 pin PCIe connectors to get power from the PSU. Sapphire equipped the card with a couple of HDMI 2.1a ports and a pair of DP 2.1 ports.
