  • newegg SAPPHIRE Dual-X Cooling Technology Dual-X is a highly efficient multi-heatpipe cooler with dual fans that provide quiet and very cool operation during normal operating conditions, and superb cooling performance even under extreme loads.
  • 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 PowerTune Technology AMD PowerTune is a breakthrough technology that sets an entirely new direction for maximum performance at TDP. It allows the GPU to be designed with higher engine clock speeds which can be applied on the broad set of applications that have thermal headroom.
  • newegg AMD Stream Technology Accelerate the most demanding applications with AMD Stream technology and do more with your PC. AMD Stream Technology allows you to use the teraflops of compute power locked up in your graphics processer on tasks other than traditional graphics such as video encoding, at which the graphics processor is many, many times faster than using the CPU alone.
  • newegg AMD HD3D Technology Enjoy the most immersive experience possible with full support for High Definition Stereoscopic 3D, a technique that presents 2D images (movies, games, photos) in a format that creates the illusion of three-dimensional depth when using compatible 3D displays/glasses/software.

1 out of 5 eggsNever again

Pros: Cheap-ish in price. Supposedly as strong or a little stronger than Nvidia in performance.

Cons: Brand new and freshly installed, they were loud. Then later the supposedly better performance was marred by the driver reboots. None of the Radeon software seemed to help and my cards actually ran better after I uninstalled everything and just let windows get the drivers. Right now (just past 90 days since I ordered them) they sound like the fans are about to fail.

Other Thoughts: I gave up my nvidia's for what I thought was an upgrade. NEVER AGAIN, Radeon..

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Mid Range Card

Pros: Great price. High memory bandwidth (384bit) high memory capacity (3GB). Supports new features and full DX 11.2. Runs everything at 1080p max settings and 4x+AA over 60 fps.

Cons: Plastic shroud feels flimsy, very large card

Other Thoughts: If you game at 1080p and dont want to spend more than 200$ this is the card for you. It should handle much higher resolutions as well but I use my 1080p tv.
Runs evolve (latest cryengine) maxed out 1080p with great fps.
More than doubles the performance of my O'C'ed X-Fired 5770s

2 out of 5 eggsDont Be Fooled

Pros: 1. Sapphire product
2. Reasonably priced
3. Easy installation

Cons: Although this card may seem all and well on paper dont be fooled like myself. First off, I think's worth mentioning that this card is essentially the HD 7970!--it's just been re-branded. My main contention with this card is its inability to play dx11 games as flawlessly as one would expect for a R9 series card. Crysis 3, sniper elite 3 and civ beyond earth are all unplayable. This card tends to run hot under load and does not, i repeat does not, render games such as crysis 3 on ultra settings seamlessly. Upgrading from a 3870x2, i was hoping for a massive upgrade in my gaming experience which unfortunately sapphire failed to provide. all i got were driver and overheating issues.

thanks sapphire!

Other Thoughts: look elsewhere for a graphics card. stay away!

5 out of 5 eggsbest thing ever

Pros: This thing is a beast, plays whatever I throw at it. On a 60'' tv HD plays the forest (alpha) at an average of 45 fps, skyrim at 60 and above on ultra high full everything going to see what I get with max Payne 3! Love it

Cons: Nothing

4 out of 5 eggsPSU NEEDS

Pros: 1. Is capable of running most current games at 1080p 60fps with ultra settings
2. Less expensive than a GTX 760 (the NVidia counterpart) at the time I bought it
3. Looks bad***

Cons: I plugged it in, installed the drivers, and opened up FarCry 4. I then proceeded to play. With all of the graphical settings set to max, I was getting about 50 FPS constant, then all of the sudden, my computer crashed. I checked my PSU because I had heard that this card wrecked them and what do you know, my PSU was melting. Literally melting.

Make sure you have a 600+ Watt PSU before you use this card.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast, Price ($170), 3GB is plenty for my 2 monitors and my games

Cons: minor con, the instructions state that it will run with just 1 6 pin plugged in, and mine required both. I had plenty and my 850watt power supply has plenty of juice so not sure what is up with this.

1 out of 5 eggsDead like elvis

Pros: cool looking, the fans work, fits nicely in the slot.

Cons: While the fans work, the card displays no video. Fortunately for me, my hd5770 still works great and I put it in the slot until I get something else. Newegg will not let me exchange the item for a different item, instead they insist on shipping me a replacement. DO NOT BUY THIS TERD ON A STICK.

Other Thoughts: Should have stuck with msi like always.

1 out of 5 eggsBasically Worthless

Pros: - None

Cons: - Overheats. Exceeds 40°C just idling w/ 200mm fans on it.
- Dies as soon as anything more graphically rigorous than Windows is run.
- Sapphire support site asks you to relog every 5 min.

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend passing this by for something with better QA. It hit a good price/value point for me, but dealing with the troubleshooting and subsequent customer service interaction throw that out the door.
