    I guess a nice looking box would sell some reference cards.All the AMD reference cards I had in the past did not bother me too much with noise but the last couple years I would never tough a reference card again.
    I do like the look of the boxes though.
    Just rambling here ,I got a Zotac RTX 2080 and the box when you pull the card out of the box it has plastic stuff with fans on it and they look like the fans are spinning when you remove the card.Thought that was cool.

    The last, XFX, image must be a joke about the peculiar shape of the 5700XT.

    Well the first two images look like they just completed ripped off Nvidia and the FE boxes. The XFX image fits in with XFX’s quality so joke may be in them.

    That was my first impression too. Like sure, there's only so much you can do to stylize a box for a GPU, but this is a pretty blatant rip off. Not that I especially care, it is just a box after all. Once the GPU is in your PC, nobody gives a crap about the fancy way the box opens if nothing is inside.
    The XFX box caused me to burst out laughing. I don't have a problem with the brand, but it's just funny to be like "oooh" and "aaaah" over all the others, and here comes XFX like "uhhh... I blame UPS..."

    i love the "already broken by falling from the Amazon's truck" look XD

    i am waiting Hilbert's full review :)

    *edit* the imperial version is nice but the Jedi version should be blue or green and not gold :)

    I can't believe that's the actual look, it must be a joke, but thanks for the giggles.

    They need to fire the designer who thought that a GPU with a dent in it is a good look.

    I think XFX got it right. Look at the shape of the card, then look at the SHRINK WRAPPED cardboard. Whats the problem? :D

    It is for better grip, so card does not fly off your hand as you repurpose it as hammer/club.

    I cannot believe that they would purposely design something that stupid looking. Why in the hell would they design something to look like it's been dropped and stepped on?
