1 out of 5 eggsgood price and value, if you're lucky

Pros: good card for the price, value

Cons: worked ok for about 4 months, then black screen, no display available errors. I switched out PSU to try and fix but did not help.

Other Thoughts: the RMA process on this is not straightforward. Ultimately i'm hoping to get another version of this card because it can work good but i'm having to get a second one to hopefully get it.

3 out of 5 eggsno soup for you

Pros: was strong for 5 months in a daily forex station with no problems

Cons: black screen, no signal error; replaced my PS to no avail; chronic problem with this series; going back to MSI and Giga...

Other Thoughts: the RMA process is unclear; sapphire is passing the buck onto the retailer; so will this be an exchange outside of newegg's return period? Who wants to deal with this nonsense?!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat middle of the road card

Pros: -Good for gaming
-Can overclock or even under clock
-Can control fan speed

Cons: A little power hungry,as to be expected

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a fairly cheap card that would allow me to play CSGO and a few other games on my linux machine. This fit the bill nicely, no issues playing, looks great and was a great upgrade from my previous card. I'm not an avid gamer but I like to sneak off and play a few rounds every now and then.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Card for the price!

Pros: Runs cool and quiet when idle
Runs cooler than the stock 280 with reference cooler.
Can be overclocked

Cons: Is a rebranded Radeon HD 7950
Needs 200W of power
Isn't an R9 280X

Other Thoughts: I am currently overclocking this card right now, and I can honestly say that it runs just as good, if not better than a similar card from nVidia. If you have not upgraded your Power Supply Unit in a while, I would recommend doing so when purchasing this card because this card uses a LOT of power. You'll need at least a 500W power supply with at least an 80 Plus Bronze rating.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible Overclocker

Pros: This thing overclocked to 1175Mhz core and 1500(6000)Mhz vram without going above 70c or 50% fan speed. 25% increase in core clock and 20% increase in vram clock without a single artifact, almost no increase in heat, and not a drop of extra voltage. All for $165 after rebate!

Cons: A little power hungry, but a 500w-600w PSU of decent quality should handle her just fine.

Other Thoughts: I don't think I'll buy GPUs from anybody except Sapphire ever again.

4 out of 5 eggsRuns well, good price.

Pros: Great card. I like the way it looks and it performs great. It runs most games on medium/high at a constant framerate at about 60 fps. Some big games like Arma run only decent on most computers. This card will hold it out at 30fps on good settings.

Cons: Coil whine. Coil whine. Coil whine. I absolutely hate it, and it's super obvious with this card. It happens between 37%-52% fan speed. I've set the TriXXX Sapphire Tweak Utility to just skip that entire fan range. It has gotten rid of it, but now my fan jumps in speed the whole time I'm playing games. The coil whine happens exactly where my card wants to rest its fan speed.

Other Thoughts: It was cheaper than the direct comparison Nvidia card. But after the coil whine and infrequent driver updates, I'll probably go back to Nvidia with my next card.

I bought the card back in July, and it cost about $224 back then and came with three free games.

This card is essentially a Radeon 7950.

5 out of 5 eggsBig and Bulky but BADA$$!

Pros: I've played every game I own on SUPER HIGH graphics and without exaggerating I have not returned to lower ANY settings. You can throw any game at this GPU and it will outperform any expectation you may have. Minecraft (Amplified), BioShock Infinite, Battlefield 4, Quake Live, TF2, Super Monday Night Combat, etc. Be sure to use an HDMI TV or Monitor for best performance.

Cons: There are really no cons to speak of. I thought the card looked sexy but while adding it to the motherboard I was weary of pressing too hard as the case around the GPU seemed a bit flimsy. I was able to mount the card without any problems though! Make sure you have at least a 600watt 80+ Gold power supply for this thing. 3GB means you're future-proofing yourself and you'll be able to use this card for a long time in the future.

Other Thoughts: Product came with a cool little sticker I gladly stuck onto my case. Thanks Sapphire!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat 1080p card

Pros: -Maxes games at 1080p at high frame rates.
-Runs cool and quiet (very suprised)
-3Gb of VRAM for a little more future proofing with games using a decent amount of VRAM nowadays.

Cons: -kinda ugly with the blue pcb and copper heatpipes adorning the black and silver heatsink.
-packaging is pretty much an afterthought

Other Thoughts: Bought this card for a friend for his first gaming rig and its running beautifully. He hasn't had any driver issues and the card happily hums along churning out top notch 1080p gameplay at high frame rates. I'll be honest and say im an Nvidia fanboy but this AMD card runs great and have no regrets suggesting this card to my friend

5 out of 5 eggsHappy with the results

Pros: The card isn't too big and still packs a punch. I'm running Tomb Raider, Far Cry 3, and Dragon Age: Inquisition all on ultra. My biggest concern was Dragon Age, but the benchmarks are 32.8-38 @ 1080p so, game play seems higher though because it's very smooth where as some cut scenes can be choppy in bits. The card is also very quite.

Cons: The only con I really have is that I went with a 290 to CrossFire those at a later date. I'm concerned that I will already have to CrossFire this one sooner, but, as for now, I'm very happy with it's performance.

Other Thoughts: Tomb Raider min fps was 59.1 and I haven't checked Far Cry 3, but I never had a hiccup in it.

2 out of 5 eggsWorst Tech Support

Pros: Works in Windows fine

Cons: Unable to get proprietary drivers installed in Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit. Contacted Sapphire support via email, they only have email support! The support staff simply said : "Sapphire does not provide Linux drivers, all drivers are offer through AMD, so you might want to check with them for help on Linux systems." Are you kidding me? Last Sapphire product I will buy and I manage an IT company.
