  • newegg Vapor-X Technology SAPPHIRE’s innovative Vapor-X cooling technology allows products to run not only cooler, but also much quieter. A Vapor-X product means a virtually silent gaming experience, and more headroom to explore performance tweaking!
  • newegg Black Diamond Choke and Full Solid Cap Design Choke is an important component of the graphics card. By working with the component engineer, Sapphire’s exclusive choke is 10% cooler, and offers 25% more power efficiency than a normal choke. The graphics card will be more reliable and will save energy. Improved reliability and better overclocking are possible by using only high-polymer, aluminum capacitors, which possess far superior characteristics than regular aluminum capacitors for a longer product life. When operational temperatures drop by 20°C, the product life span is extended by a factor of ten; when the operational temperature increases by 20°C, the product life span only decreases by 10%.
  • newegg DirectX 11.2 The tessellation performance on AMD Radeon R7/R9 series is up to two times faster than the previous generation, and DirectCompute performance is also faster to accelerate advanced post-processing, filtering, and anti-aliasing techniques. Direct X11 games has never looked this good.

5 out of 5 eggsA Fantastic Card

Pros: The best graphics card I have had. It stays cool at only 20% capacity. This was definitly worth the money, buy it. This card is a darn monster.

Cons: I had to move my hard drive out of the way just to put this sucker in because it was so big, but.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card for the money!

Pros: Very solid build quality
The Vapor X tech really works (See other thoughts)
Very quite card at full fan speeds(See other thoughts)
The best price vs. performance I have ever seen in a video card!
Card has zero sag!
Only 2 -6 pin power connections
Nice looking for the blue heat sink motherboards
Cross-Fire should be fantastic
Sapphire only produces video cards and I have been satisfied with every Sapphire card I have bought over the years!
The card runs super cool 54 degrees C max under full load is fantastic (See Other Thoughts)
It's factory over-clocked for a 3% speed gain which is still a plus

Would have received a 5 egg review but there are some quality control issues (See other thoughts)

Time will tell about the longevity of the fans, but out of the box they run fine (See Other Thoughts)

Cons: The 2 year warranty is not really a con if you know about it before you purchase but it's a full year less than the Asus video cards and the lifetime warranty of the XFX cards and a few other card producers!

Other Thoughts: O.K. so I now have bought 2 of these cards for a Cross-Fire setup, both used at about 50% the retail cost.
So two cars for CrossFire for the cost of a single card at retail cost is pretty darn great!

VaporX tech seems to work fantastic on one card with temps at 54 degrees C at full load! However, the other card runs at 64 degrees C at full load. Hmmm..............Odd.....

One card has some fan issues that only occur during speed changes for a short time. My guess is that the sleeve bearing is iffy, meaning rather cheap fans.

It looks as thought the price is dropping on these as I type this and these run at 7950/7970 speeds!

I have contacted Sapphire before I bought these cards and found out that you can pay a $20 service fee and still have the card covered under the 2 year warranty even if your not the original owner. I did not think they would do this which is a big plus for Sapphires business practices!

I have been working in I.T. since way back in 1994 and have seen video cards go from 4 meg PCI cards to 128 Meg AGP, to 256 Meg PCI-Express 1, to 512 Meg DDR 4 PCI-Express 2, to 1 GIG DDR5 PCI-Express 2.1 to 2 GIG DDR 5 PCI-Express 2.1 and 3.0

Also the 128 bit memory bus to 256 bit, to 384 bit, to 512 bit which is great for both AMD and Nvidia.

I must admit I'm a ATI/AMD Radeon fan and always have been since the first GeForce card I bought had very poor 2D that was actually blurry. Now this was the very first AGP GeForce card and the DAC was horrible for 2D.

I realize that Nvidia has now reached the same 400 MHZ DAC that all cards use so I'm quite sure there 2D graphics are close if not equal to the ATI/AMD cards.

I have always been a fan of AMD simply because they pass savings to the end user that both Intel and Nvidia do not!

That said I'm still running a i5 2500k intel chip with a Z77 intel chipset Asus motherboard only because they are better for gaming still.

Now that said I know my next build will be a all AMD system that will either match intel or be so close that it won't make a difference.

I'm simply waiting for AMD to get there fabrication size and thus heat and wattage down along with avoiding these patches they always seem to require!

So 4 big eggs for this Sapphire video card and for AMD finally putting some serious effort into better drivers for the new or reinvented line of video cards.

Even the AMD haters out there have to admit that Sony would have never used AMD for both the duel CPUs and GPUs in the PlayStation 4 unless they produced a very rock solid performance!

Final note: I will never buy a P4 or XBox1 for gaming!

I like to game on a PC that I build myself and get to know like the back of my hand! My own builds just like others are designed to be at least somewhat future proof to get at least 4 good years before an upgrade!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Midrange card

Pros: Quiet

Performs well at most games at 1080p

Cons: Now that both Amd and Nvidia have been releasing newer cards Amd Tonga Gpu aka r9-285 and Nvidia has been releasing maxwell cards 970 and 980 it kind of put more pressure on this card.
It still performs great, and it price is 15-30 cheaper then 5 months ago.

Other Thoughts: I've used a few Sapphire R9 cards in the past year. All have performed great and with no problems (I usually only run single GPU setups)

If you are a gamer that plays at 1080p this is still a great card. If you play at higher settings 1440p or 4k then of course you need more GPU power then what this card has to offer.

Even now at its current price it offers great performance for the dollar. The only downside is for 50 dollars more you could get a R9-285 based on the newer Tonga GCN 3.0 which offers better performance and better performance per watt.
Also Nvidia new Maxwell cards are very energy efficient so when one get made in the 190-250 dollar range it will put alot of pressure on these cards.

Despite all this these cards are still a great buy. They are quiet and cool and perform well at all games I tossed at them at 1080p.

5 out of 5 eggsR9 270X Vapor-X

Pros: Fast, cool, quiet, Stylish

Good card for the money, I have had no problems with this card at it runs 96% of my games on the highest settings. For the price it really is an amazing card, plus with the vapor technology it never over heats.

Cons: I do have this problem when I dual screen where my main screens taskbar shacks/flickers, but I rarely dual screen and it might not be the cards fault, I am not a computer wizard. Honestly tho no cons to this card so far as I am aware.

Other Thoughts: card is about perfect for the price so not much to add

4 out of 5 eggsGreat video card for the cost!

Pros: I have always been a big fan of ATI/AMD video cards even before AMD bought out ATI.

AMD is well known for producing good chips, chipsets for boards and very good video cards. This new line of Video cards is no exception!

The entire R series line is a huge step forward for AMD. It's basically the same chipset that's in the Play Station 4 which says a lot about AMD!

This is my second Sapphire Radeon purchase with my last being a Asus 6950 that was a beast that took up 3 slots.

This made the card very impractical for Cross- Fire support!

This card has fantastic cooling with the Vapor X tech and it really shows.

Great dual bias video card that is very stiff in the PCI-Express slot unlike the Asus 6950 that sagged so much it failed and needed to be RMAed.

I bought this card for only $117 used and it was the best purchase I have ever made in a video card!

Great solid construction with a fantastic cooling system that really does work as advertised.

Decent driver support with Windows 8.1 but still a little buggy with the current 14.4 driver!

I would have given this card a 5 egg review but the driver support being slow to get these really stable brings it down to a 4 egg status, which is still way above average!

Putting two of these in Cross-Fire is cheaper and faster than buying the top R9 GPU card!

$400 for a performance better than a R9 290X at over $500 is a good deal!

Cons: The entire line needs better more stable driver support that I'm sure AMD is pursuing at the time I'm writing this!

Card lacked the Cross-Fire bridge but I knew that going in so it's not a con.

I looked online and found out the bridge for my 6950 will work just fine with this R9-270X for Cross-Fire support.

This card really has zero cons at the price point I bought it at!

Other Thoughts: I was able to pick this up used for $117 with next day shipping and a 14 day return policy to boot!

This card is a solid 25% faster than my old 6950 and uses less power as well.

Less power means a cooler running GPU!

I have never been a Nvidia fan and think they sell there cards at to high a price. They use much more power and run way hotter!

This is AMD's way of re-inventing there product line and it's about time! They have SS Drives and very fast RAM now being sold!

Great upward movement for the AMD company and hopefully I'll be going all AMD in my next build.

I'm still running a intel i5 2500k sicne I'm a realist, however that said I think AMD has finally caught up Intel with it's new line of chips and memory!

Being a Computer tech since 1994 I have always been rooting for the underdog and it looks like the latest AMD chips, chipsets, memory and video cards will match or even surpass Intel and I have been waiting a long time for this to happen.

Keep it up AMD and you will gain a huge percentage of the gaming community as well as workstation and server builds!

You can find this card used at a great price since the R9- 280X with the 384bit memory processors price has gotten so high thanks to all the minors!

5 out of 5 eggsamazing cards

Pros: amazing card performs flawlessly and stays cool under pressure runs any game i can throw at it on high to ultra with no problems works in crossfire very well and easy to overclock 3d rendering is excellent and these cards also work well in coin mining rigs as well

Cons: very large card must have a full tower case with good ventilation if you run an air cooled rig

Other Thoughts: you need to have a large case and plenty of airflow

5 out of 5 eggsWell...

Pros: I bought 2 of these a few months back and it has not given me any problems at all! Just make sure your system can power the beast. I have been able to play any game using crossfire just fine on max settings at 1080p! But in the end I find myself playing L4D2 and skyrim most of the time. Overclocking this card to 1.2ghz(1200mhz) is flawless - I also messed with the ram speeds and got it working fine at 1.6ghz(1600mhz) stays cool but in the end I have 2 of them so they are run at stock most of the time.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: System:
AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0ghz
2x R9 270X gpus in crossfire (This card)
32gb of DDR3 1866 memory (4 x 8gb G. Skill)
Kingston v300 2340gb ssd
2tb WD external desktop hdd.

5 out of 5 eggsJust smash that buy button.

Pros: Very silent , cool , and fast for the price.

Surprisingly fast and chewed anything I've kicked at it , within reason.

Overclocking is stable amd cool without much efforts.

Supports Crossfire for budget-minded gamers.

Cons: Make sure you have a decent 400-500W PSU before buying , it has a taste for power when OC'ing.

It also needs 2 6-pins PCI-E connectors.

Best bang for the bucks.

Other Thoughts: Don't expect rock-solid 60 FPS on Ultra at 1080p with heavy games like Battlefield 4 or Crysis 3, this is no GTX 780 ti or other high-Tier card.

It's a solid mid-range card tough that will get 45-50-ish FPS on 1080p BF4 Ultra with reasonable drops when all hell breaks loose. Pretty impressive at that price range.

I just finished seting up a Crossfire setup with this very card and a Sapphire R9 270X Dual-X (witch is just 30 Mhz slower) and it does a rock-solid , no drops 90 FPS on 1080p Ultra BF4 ! Now that's value !

As for reliability, I never had problems with any Sapphire products, just learn how to properly diagnose a non-working GPU and plugging stuff at the right while protecting yourself from static before sending RMA's and bashing on a company that just plain does good products.

Just stop reading and smash that buy button already !

5 out of 5 eggsBest $200 card

Pros: I bought this a while ago for $220, it was worth it, it runs super cool (around 30-40C even after playing Battlefield 4 on ultra for multiple hours) It can handle probably any game at ultra 1080p, as long as it doesnt have the words Crysis and 3 in the title.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If you are thinking about buying this, just do, and if you find it on sale for >$200 buy it right away. My new pc handles every game, and I can even edit video pretty good on it too,
CPU: i5-4670
RAM: G Skill Ares 8gb (2x4gb)
GPU: This one
HDD: WD Blue 1tb
