  • 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.
  • newegg Mantle There’s optimization, and then there’s Mantle. Games enabled with Mantle speak the language of GCN architecture to unlock revolutionary performance and image quality. (Application support is required.)
  • newegg AMD Eyefinity Enjoy the ultimate immersive gaming experience with innovative “wrap around” multidisplay capabilities.
  • newegg Dual Firmware Support This product supports both Legacy and UEFI BIOS. By factory default, the card itself is under Legacy mode. Sapphire products with "Dual Firmware Support" functions equip the UEFI firmware that's digitally signed and approved by Microsoft for Secure Boot. With Windows 8's secure boot architecture and its establishment of a root of trust, the customer is protected from malicious code executing in the boot path by ensuring that only signed, certified "known good" code and boot loader can execute before the operating system itself loads.

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,

5 out of 5 eggsFr!ckin awesome

Pros: -lots of fps
-super quiet
-super cool

Cons: -wish it was buy one get one free so i could crossfire

Other Thoughts: upgraded from an msi R7 250. HUGE difference. for 1080p 1920x1080 resolution this card is perfectly overkill and will get you the magical 60 fps in most games. i also love Saphire's vapor x cooler. never goes above 70c even under load for hours.

5 out of 5 eggsThis card is amazing for the price point!

Pros: Great Card, Good FPS, Frosty temps!, Price, MUST BUY!

Cons: None at all

Other Thoughts: I purchased this card off of Ama-zon... I've had it for alittle over a month, and I'm very happy with it. I have a FX-6300 @4.3 ghz, card is 1100/1400 mhz, and I play BF4 at a steady 50-60 FPS with DirectX. As of 5/14/14 mantle is still not stable enough to play on, it'll play well but constant drops below 20 fps. Mantle definetely has potential, when its fixed and refined it'll destroy DirectX. This card is the best for the price, very happy with sapphire!

2 out of 5 eggsNot quite

Pros: It started out great. Put up great numbers.

Cons: It's running hot. I'm playing WoW which shouldn't be THAT demanding.

What happens is, I get these tears in the graphics. There will also be black patches just missing or flickering graphics. It does this on WoW and WildStar.

Other Thoughts: Syste:

AMD - 8320
16 GB Ripjaw
ASROCK Fatality
Sapphire R9 270
Corsair 1000w

5 out of 5 eggsRuns Fast, Runs Quiet and Runs Cool

Pros: For the price I paid ($239) this card delivers exceptional performance. It run Battlefield 4 and Crysis 3 both on ultra settings at well over 40 frames per second. My current CPU is a slightly older 3.4 ghz quad core phenom II, so with a faster 6 or 8 core processor this card would crunch even more frames per second out of these games.

I run the Trixx utility with this card to keep track of its temp. Even under full load this card has not gotten hotter than 55c. And it does this while staying whisper quiet.

Cons: The only con I can think of is how I've seen the price of these and other r9 270x's have started to climb due to Data Miners. The last time I checked this card was unavailable from Newegg and could only be purchased from a 3rd party, at a much inflated price.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this card to smoothly run Star Citizen's upcoming Dog Fighting module, as I have been a backer since the beginning of its announcement.

So naturally the 1st thing I tested this card on was Crysis 3, as Star Citizen's uses the Crytek engine.

Not only does this card meet my expectations, it exceeds my hopes. The frame rate hasn't dropped below 40 fps with every graphical option cranked up.

Now, Star Citizen is a beast of a program that will require our PC hardware to push higher poly counts than just about anything out there now, but I'm confident that this card is up to the task.

Perhaps not with every graphic tic box checked and slider pushed to the max, but that's ok with me, as Star Citizen promises to be absolutely beautiful even on medium to high settings, which this card will still chew through.
