GALAX GeForce RTX 3070 SG Package

The GALAX GeForce RTX 3070 SG graphics card comes inside a standard cardboard box. The front of both packages has a large "GeForce RTX" brand logo along with the "GALAX" logo on the top left corner and the card branding on the lower-left corner. The box features a whole hooded gamer vibe that GALAX has been using to market their gaming cards for a while now.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 SUPER Lineup Gets Rumored Specs: 3090 SUPER 10752 Cores & 24 GB, 3080 SUPER 8960 Cores & 12 GB, 3070 SUPER 5888 Cores & 8 GB, 3060 SUPER 5632 Cores & 12 GB

The packaging has put a large emphasis on the RTX side of things as the first feature enlisted by AIBs will be NVIDIA Ampere architecture, Ray Tracing & DLSS support. NVIDIA has bet the future of their gaming GPUs on Ray Tracing support as these are the first cards to offer support for the new feature.

The back of the box is very typical, highlighting the main features and specifications of the cards.  There's also a focus towards GeForce.com on each AIB card through which users can download the latest drivers and GeForce Experience application which are a must for gamers to access all feature sets of the new cards.

The sides of the box once again greet us with the large GeForce RTX branding. There's also the mention of 8 GB GDDR6 (RTX 3070) memory available on the card.

Outside of the box, the graphics card and the accessory package are held firmly by foam packaging. The graphics card comes with a few accessories and manuals which might not be of much use for hardcore enthusiasts but can be useful for the mainstream gaming audience.

The card is nicely wrapped within an anti-static cover which is useful to prevent any unwanted static discharges on various surfaces that might harm the graphics card. The card accessories include an RGB holder stick, the 1-clip booster, manuals and a pack of screws for the holder stick.

After the package is taken care of, I can finally start talking about the card itself. The card comes in a standard width but feels really long due to its extended shroud design.
