3 out of 5 eggsSapphire nerfed this card

Pros: - Great HSF design with three fans as opposed to two on most cards. Under load, this card runs around 5c degrees cooler than a Diamond r9 280x at 10% less fan speed.

- Metal backplate gives this card a sturdy feel, helps with flex as this is a LONG card.

- VRMs have individual little ridged heatsinks on the back of card. Allows for excellent heat dissipation.

Cons: - Sapphire has revised this card for the worse, a.k.a. they nerfed it. The memory is Elpida and not the Hynix memory that came with the cards originally. Unlike with original versions with Hynix, this version only runs good around the 1030/1500 core/mem clock area, overclocking will reduce performance.

- No way to monitor VRM temp, this one is a bug. VRM temps read as 0c via latest version of Sapphire Trixx utility and GPU-Z. ASIC quality according to GPU-Z is 51%, which is abysmal for supposedly the best R9. Workaround is to use an app called HWiNFO64, not ideal because it polls temps in realtime and probably takes up resources.

- Unable to turn off Sapphire logo light and three small lights. This lights up my bedroom at night.

- For miners, expect low 700s and nothing more. Work utility 650-ish. Pushing the clock past 1040 will reduce performance, which is due to Elpida memory. Nearly identical performance to my Diamond r9 280x boost, but with lower temps at a lower fan speed. The diamond scored 11% higher in ASIC quality according to GPU-Z.

Other Thoughts: AMD should force manufacturers to specify what kind of memory the cards come with. Reviews are utterly pointless with the R9 generation of cards. Manufacturers are playing a game where the first gen cards are stellar, with optimized timings using best available Hynix memory. The reviewers benchmark them and they score high. Then they launch the card and a few months down the road without changing the name or model they swap out the memory with something cheaper which ruins the timing and thus performance.

I hope Maxwell puts an end to this little game.

1 out of 5 eggsupdate from 1st review

Pros: This card worked great when I first installed it. Then it began to artifact in BF4 and only this game. This card is great looking though and the 3 cooling fans keep this sucker cool with no issues.

Cons: Card is now artifacting only in BF4. Not O/C in any way. Going back and forth with different drivers same result. I have since purchased an SSD drive and did a brand new install and tried out the mantel drivers which did nothing but crash BF4 because of a mantel dll module went bad. I just want every to be aware of this issue and I hope with the next batch that are manufactured, the vram chips are not corrupted or defective . Can't tell you how disappointed I am. You spend close to 500 bucks and expect to get a good product. I am working on the RMA process but I just don't want to wait two months to get a possible refurbished card. Still can't decide if I'll do the RMA and wait the two months or hold off till new ones show up and then RMA it. I can play BF4 with the latest non beta drivers and will for a bit before deciding what to do.

Other Thoughts: I have read that the vram chips on the R9-280X series cards is flawed or corrupted in some way to create this condition. It sucks because now they are out of stock and one user is waiting two months for his RMA to be returned.

Manufacturer Response:

We are very sorry that you have had problems with your graphics card.

We do hope that your return with Newegg goes smoothly

5 out of 5 eggsStable, fairly cool

Pros: Card runs very stable and cool. I had a 290x and traded down to a 280x because of high issues. These are best bang for the buck. Sapphire + AMD = Happy geeks.

Cons: Wish it was cheaper. Cyrpto changing the world as we know it!

1 out of 5 eggsSigh....

Pros: So its a nice card good clocks and really nice design. Stayed at 70c in crossfire with my 7970 vapor-x

Cons: Artifacting like you wouldnt believe.. as I am writing this review my web browser has black squares popping up and it crashes while playing bf4. Checked GPUz and it has an asic score of 57.4%. Such a let down think I will RMA once and if not switch to another card.

Other Thoughts: Good thing I still have a 7970 Vapor-x

Manufacturer Response:

We are very sorry that you have had problems with your graphics card.

Crossfiring the HD 7970 and R9 280X is not supported. The HD 7970 will be set to higher limits than is supported which will cause artifacting as it is running out of spec.

Please be aware that the ASIC quality score in GPU-Z is not an actual quality check of the ASIC. It only checks the voltage/speed of the ASIC and compares it to the reference design. An overclocked card will always get a low "ASIC score" but will almost always outperform a card with a high score.

We do hope that your return with Newegg goes smoothly

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: -Plays Crisis 3, Skyrim, Warframe, Counter Strike Source, and TF2 on Max settings (1080p) even with my weak i5 from the i5 650 chip set (Dual Core with hyperthreading, 3.2 ghz)
- Pretty quite up to fan speeds of 30% with temps still below 60°C, even on Crysis 3 (Is below 45°C on every other game I listed above)

Cons: -Pretty loud beyond 30% fan speeds (Not a huge con)
-Doesn't match the color scheme of most cases (Again a small issue and I knew it wouldn't match my Antec V3 before I bought)
-There is a line of pixels that take longer to change that goes all the way accross when I move my view right and left while gaming (doesn't happen when I move up and down), however, I only have noticed it on Skyrim and I don't even know if it is the gpu, it could be the drivers, the monitor, or the game could be messed up (Once again, I only noticed it on Skyrim, even though I looked for it on other games.
-GTA IV does hasn't been running smooth at all, even after I made it so it would recognize all 3gb of vram, however my I am confident my i5 in the i5 650 chipset is the real limiter here.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Experience with Newegg and card

Pros: Nice looking card, LED's are nice, top notch build. Card is more quiet than reviews give it credit for as well

Cons: The card artifacts and causes random screen flickering in windows (even on Windows 8 desktop with nothing running) with absolutely no tweaks, OC...totally stock, etc. 4 different sets of drivers with clean installs didn't fix issue, as card was isolated to be the problem as issue didn't occur when another card (Matrix Platinum) was swapped into same PCI slot.

Now for the worst part of the experience: Newegg pulled a fast one on me with it's so called "Iron Egg" Guarantee. I RMA'd the card as I should have, Newegg received it just the day before, and requested an exchange because I actually liked the card and wanted it to work. Newegg the very next day changed my RMA from "exchange" to "refund", and credit me my money back. The problem is, as many of you know because of the recent Litecoin/Bitcoin mining craze, the cost of this particular card has gone up quite a bit!!!! Newegg told me that if I still wanted the card I would have to re-purchase it at the *new* retail price, then wait for a store credit for the difference, which means not only will I have to wait for the auto notify email that typically shows up even AFTER the item has already been sold out half the time, I will have to wait up to another 7-10 business days DURING THE HOLIDAYS just to receive my store credit!!! Newegg also refused to send me my faulty card back, because if I would have know this I would have happily RMA'd it with Sapphire directly instead of having to deal with this, during the holidays at that. Horrible experience overall!!! I wish I just would've RMA'd it with Sapphire and been done with it!!!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: OC'ed already
Cool looking card
Very fast

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: I'am a newbie builder and after reading lots of reviews, i went for this 280x. Not too loud and no coil whine when i play my games on ultra and i tried the heaven benchmarking tool too and heard no whine either.
