The Radeon R9 290X, the AMD's new flagship GPU, offers the weapon of choice for gamers who demand the best. It's based on the new 28nm Hawaii GPU architecture and introduces the support for DirectX 11.2, capable of rendering reality-redefining imagery in the hottest titles. With a massive number of stream processors and a gigantic 4GB GDDR5 memory, this GPU delivers the performance you need for smooth gameplay at extreme settings. The new CrossFire technology allows you to build a multiple graphics card configuration without the use of interconnect bridges. With Ultra Resolution Gaming you will leave HD in the dust by gaming on displays much, much larger. A rich set of AMD innovative technologies are included, such as App Acceleration, AMD PowerTune, AMD ZeroCore, and AMD HD3D technology. With these technology advancements, you'll get more than one way to elevate your gaming experience.

This model boasts an enhanced engine clock of up to 1040MHz (1GHz for standard) for smoother gameplay, and Sapphire’s exclusive Tri-X cooling technology for effective and efficient cooling, even under extreme loads.

  • newegg SAPPHIRE Tri-X Cooling Technology Sapphire's exclusive triple-fan design pushes out the heat more efficiently than standard dual fans.
  • newegg Built for Crossfire The card features next generation CrossFire support for up to four graphics cards with no interconnect bridge required.
  • 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. It’s a game-changing innovation developed by AMD.
  • newegg AMD TrueAudio Technology AMD TrueAudio technology brings the world’s first programmable audio pipeline marking a new frontier in realism for PC gamers.

Enabled games can feature more realistic environmental dynamics, a richer tapestry of sound effects, breathtaking directional audio, and more. AMD TrueAudio technology enhances audio realism by simulating the human brain’s perception of real-world sound, working in concert with the user’s existing audio hardware to recreate a lifelike experience (on supported games).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: Very good card can handle any game at 2560X1440

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: The 980 came out so this card is a bit outdated now but it is also a year old. If it drops in price you should definitely get it for gaming @ 2560X1440.

4 out of 5 eggsUpdated review. post RMA

Pros: New card is still quiet. Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Skyrim & Portal 2 look great. No tearing at highest settings. Continues to work.

Cons: On second card. First failed after about 2-2.5 weeks (see previous one egg review).

Had to pay for return shipping.

Other Thoughts: On second card, The first failed early on & when I contacted Sapphire was told to RMA to Newegg since I was still in the 30day window. Two week turnaround to receive the new card. I had to pay return shipping, which is a bummer. You'll have infant mortality on new parts, that way the bathtub curve has its' name.

So far, replacement card is rocking well & hopefully will continue to do so The 290X does make for a pretty picture. The screens in Skyrim are gorgeous. It's amazing the detail that can be shown with a high end card & good monitor (Dell U2410) .

I really wish Newegg would let you edit your previous reviews for new info. Maybe you can, but I couldn't find it.

1 out of 5 eggsGood card, for about a month

Pros: Cool, Quiet, and works great, for a while...

Cons: Black Screens galore, worked ok for about 2 weeks, then started to get black screens, now just a bunch of black screens, stay away from this thing until AMD figures out how to write a graphics driver.

Other Thoughts: I've had no problems with Sapphire products until now, so not really blaming Sapphire, because I know a lot of people with ASUS and MSI r9 290 cards that are doing the same thing. I guess I should have went Nvidia.....

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

4 out of 5 eggsGreat brand not good company

Pros: Very fast and super quiet. 100 fps in Elder Scrolls Online, drops down to 60 in very heavy battles. I have an i7 4790 @ 3.8 GHz mind you so if you have a slower system your CPU will be the bottleneck, especially if its an AMD, games still only use 1-2 cores which is sad.

Cons: The two eggs off in NO WAY reflect on Sapphire or New Egg who have both been superb in their quality of service but rather in AMD who have been horrible.

This is my 4th physical R9 290X card and my second Sapphire one. the first 3 where ALL bad. The last one finally worked. As I tried to troubleshoot the other 3 cards I discovered thousands of people were having the same black screen issues.

Other Thoughts: I thought Sapphire would be different which is why I went with them after trying Powercolor and MSI both of which where black screening. Sapphire had the same problem however, even with a bronze cert 1k PSU I believe it has to do with compatibility with 2.0 pcie mobos but who knows, just be ready to RMA yours maybe multiple times in order to get one that works.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: Great price to performance ratio, especially when you consider it's performance when compared with the gtx 780ti which sometimes outperforms the 780ti at a lower cost. Much quieter and temps are a lot cooler than other models.

Cons: A bit long. That's about it.

Other Thoughts: I was looking at other reviews and maybe they had bad luck? Either that or perhaps not a good quality psu? I haven't had any issues with mine and it runs amazingly. Also, in general most reviews tend to be negative because people tend to only make reviews when they have problems so keep that in mind, I know quite a few people that have this same card and also have no problems.

Pros: ** NOTHING.
Please google search R9 290x before you buy this card.
BLACK SCREEN which will not post to BIOS is a common problem

Cons: This card will not post even to bios. I've spent 8 hours trying to make this work.
1. Different PSU's will not work, including a 1050w PSU, 850w PSU and a 750w PSU.
2. This card does not work in other systems, even with lower PCIE 2.0
3. This card does not work in PCIE3.0
4. Does not work with Maximus hero 7.
5. This card sucks.

Other Thoughts: I've built about 40-50 Pc's for myself and friends and family. I recently spent about 3k on my newest machine. This card just simply sucks.

I know that AMD has good hardware, but bad drivers.. and nvidia has decent hardware with awesome drivers... welll.... AMD just lost their "good hardware" mark. They simply suck now.

1 out of 5 eggsRussian Roulette

Pros: None

Cons: The 290x is a gamble and this Sapphire card in particular is horrendous

Just google or youtube '290x black screen' and you will see the massive problem this card has. To put it simply, the card randomly loses signal to your monitor and the only way to solve it is to cold boot the computer. Apparently there isn't enough voltage being fed through these cards and people have had to manually increase the voltage or decrease the clock speeds and that is unacceptable. If you are not doing any overclocking you should never have to be in a position to play around with the voltage of a card. The fact that AMD continues to sell a faulty product says all I need to know about the company. According to previous driver release notes they fixed the issue but that just isn't true.

As for Sapphire itself...the card died within a few days of usage and judging by reviews here it is a common problem. There are people here who are on their second or third card.

It seems that every time I try out an AMD card I get problem after problem. This is the last time I ever decide to try AMD again. Do yourselves a favor and pick up a 780. Hey, you might not have any issues with this series of cards but imo it is not worth the gamble.

Other Thoughts: Thank you Newegg for allowing me to get a full refund on this card. You guys are simply the best.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: None

Cons: Reading through reviews it seems that this card dying is a common problem. It took less than a day's worth of use for it to kick the bucket. It started to lose signal every once in a while until it flat out died. No over clocking, nothing.

If this was a one off occurance I wouldn't have been so upset but I see people here on their second or third card having the same issue.

Newegg was kind enough to let me get a refund so I can purchase a different card. Do not buy Sapphire products and shame on AMD for allowing these people to sell their products.
