5 out of 5 eggsNice upgrade...

Pros: Fast card, easy to install, works fine with my 730w PSU.
My PSU only had 2 6-pin connectors. I used a 6-pin to 8-pin converter, and haven't had any issues. Ran 3DMark in a loop overnight...no problems.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from 2 HD6850s in crossfireX, so the performance gain was not very noticable in SWTOR. My 2 hd6850s only had 1GB of memory, so I couldn't run ESO in eyefinity at anything above medium graphics settings. With this card...no problems, respecatble FPS on highest settings.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card, runs nicely. Happy with my new upgrade.

Pros: -Quiet
-Runs cool
-Never reached above 70degrees Celsius
-Nice improvement over my old XFX HD 6950
-Mantle support
-Runs watch_dogs on High no problem

Cons: None at the moment

Other Thoughts: Please use the Sapphire recommended drivers for this card, the recommended driver is 13.6

I made the mistake of installing straight to 14.6 Beta, this caused 2D/3D texture flickering. I then tried 14.4, only caused flickering in 2D ie Web Browsing.

13.10 to 13.6 drivers will work fine but I recommend 13.6

3 out of 5 eggsSaphire R9 280X VaporX

Pros: -Great Graphics performance.
-Cool temps.
-Great look.

Cons: -Incredibly loud coil whine when under load. V-sync did not improve sound, only changed pitch.

Other Thoughts: Card was in a Silent Fractal R4 case and coil whine was intolerably loud and high pitch, even with headphones on.

1 out of 5 eggsPunished for choosing newegg - RMA No Replace

Pros: It died in weeks there are no pros to that!

Cons: In under a couple weeks it was dead! Newegg wont replace they will only refund! That sucks .. i bought to SLI and i bought two! Now you cant even send another even tho you are selling 280x's on your site! A model that was cheaper than mine when i purchased is even available!

Your customer experience is terrible! Your chat service was completely useless and they were cold and not will to assist by sending the 280x's you are currently selling on your site now! Wow! unreal customer service! Punished for choosing newegg!

Other Thoughts: You guys arent business people you are robots who could care less for your customers experience! First time and last time customer here!!!

Manufacturer Response:

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

We do hope that Newegg are able to assist you with your return

5 out of 5 eggsgreat Card

Pros: -HDMI and Crossfire bridge included
-Mantle
-White LED
-No need for eyefinity adapter
-3GB VRAM
-Quiet
-Cool stays below 50C for most games. BF4 can push it to 65-70C
-Nice design and backplate
-Vapor chamber
-BIOS switch
-Sapphire
-

Cons: None really

Other Thoughts: I bought this on 10/21/13. Have had no problems so far. I have the original BIOS on mine so I have not experienced any throttling or any other problem in fact. I bought mine for a great price the first week it came out but the price jumped way up, kinda sad because I would have crossfired it. I will update after one year or if i have a problem. I love this card.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: -HDMI and crossfire bridge included
-Aesthetically pleasing
-Runs between 65-70C in BF4, Everything else its around 50C
-Quiet
-inexpensive
-I do not need a eyefinity adapter anymore
-Mantle
-Nice white LED

Cons: none for me, sorry about others. Great product from sapphire so far. I will update again if anything goes wrong or in a year. I bought mine on 10/21/13.

Other Thoughts: I bought mine the first week it came out, I haven't had any of the problems that it sounds like more recent purchasers described although i haven't had a need to overclock it at all yet. There is no game on the market that this wont crush as of now. I picked it up for $320 and mine DOES NOT throttle at higher temps due to old BIOS, I speculate.

1 out of 5 eggsCrypto miners do NOT buy this card

Pros: good if you can keep it under 73C 24/7

Cons: The latest revision uses cheap Elpida vram, you will not be able to break 730kh/s with this card even with custom made memory timings.

Out of the box without a reprogrammed memory timing block expect 680kH/s on average at best, 700 if you got really lucky.

This is the absolute worst card to buy for cost efficiency out of any 280x on the market.

Other Thoughts: Would never buy another.

Manufacturer Response:

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

Please be aware that when flashing to a different BIOS, it can cause the card to perform incorrectly which would result in higher temperatures.

4 out of 5 eggsnot throttled, runs great at stock

Pros: At stock I can set fans to an inaudible 38% and card never goes over 65c core and 70c vrm1. Idles at 30c. Cooler than the Asus DC2T I tried, and quieter at stock with custom fan curve. it is not throttled like the reviewer below says. Great performance.

Cons: Shroud feels flimsy. Very thick at 44mm. Does not overclock well.

2 out of 5 eggsI would not buy another AMD product.

Pros: * Cost

Cons: AMD drivers are absolutely pathetic. I am getting a 2D flicker when using the latest AMD drivers with Chrome. If I roll my drivers back to 13-9, it is gone completely, but I have issues with newer games (BF4) as far as stability and FPS. I've opened a ticket with Sapphire, but it has gone unanswered (probably due to the holidays). Multiple people on both teh AMD and Sapphire forums have been voicing this problem for months, with no fix. It does not appear to be a hardware problem, Why on earth should it take so long to get this fixed? I should have spent a little more and bought their competitors card. Rest assured that I will on my very next purchase.
