5 out of 5 eggsRuns PERFECT out of box

Pros: Powerful
Easy Install
runs cool
PERFECT out of Box

Power Hungry

Other Thoughts: Packing was great. Lots of foam padding. No kinks in hoses. Uninstalled Old 6970 from ASUS X99 5820k system. Used UUD removal tool to clean out all old AMD software. Installed new card and drivers. Runs like a dream. Did a few hours of benchmarks, running these tests like 3D Mark at 163 FPS. Old 6970 did had trouble doing 30FPS. So this is GREAT. Old 6970 was real glitchy with blue screens and had overheating issues, So I liquid cooled that card and the issues went away. Ill be doing a full water jacket with this and tie it into the main loop soon, now that I know this is a good stable card, but the warranty will be void by doing that. MAKE SURE you have at least a 1,000 watt PSU when using this card. My RM1000 seems to be taking it just fine.

5 out of 5 eggsnightmare

Pros: This card has no pros . This card is nothing but a nightmare . I have 1200 watt powersupply , 32 gb of ddr 4 ram and an i7 6 core processor . I was trying to play call of duty advance warfare and the graphics looked like trash . The driver was crashing even I was using the latest driver . I just wasted my money on it . Finally returned it with a 25 % of restocking fee .

Cons: Piece of garbage . I'm currently using dual 980s and they are just awesome . When it comes to pc gaming nvidia is the best . I never bought a radeon card . I just gave the AMD a shot and AMD failed .

5 out of 5 eggsWow just wow

Pros: This card is a beast. Everything on Ultra and room to spare.
Doesn't lie to costumers about their product like it's competitor.
Its a true 8 gig card.
Max temp after running benchmarks got to 57 Celsius on stock configuration, with Unigine, Heaven and Valley. Firestrike HD

Cons: Nothing really. Card is rock solid but it is heavy.
Tons of room for overclocking but will exceed stock cooling, need a little more cooling power to do anything more then stock. When overclocking Memory ( 1.60GHz (6.0GHz effective), I didn't need more cooling but when doing processor to 1100mhz that's when it started getting warm.

Other Thoughts: You have to make sure you have the right power configuration. It is two 8 pin PCIe connectors, no 8 6 split. Run two separate 8 pin connectors and you'll be good. And a power supply that can handle it .. I run an EVGA 1000w

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid this card like the plague...

Pros: It's fast. When it works.

Cons: It's a buggy nightmare! I have to use beta bios with my motherboard (ASRock X99 WS) to even get the computer to boot, it causes my thunderbolt card not to detect anything, and it won't work with my LG 4k monitor! The only workaround I can find is to set it to UHD (not full 4k) and 30Hz (vs 60Hz) AND I have to have my old monitor attached with the a DVI connection! If I unhook my old monitor the 4k monitor loses the signal. This problem is not unique to the specific monitor I have. Google it. Lots of problems with 4K monitors and this card.

Other Thoughts: This card has been a total NIGHTMARE and it's too late to return it. I'm going to NVIDIA cards now. I gave you a shot AMD. You failed.

5 out of 5 eggs$599, what a deal!!

Pros: Amazing card and the design behind making this card is great. Two FULL power 290x's on one PCB. Most powerful single card on the market to date.

Cons: None, just understand what your buying before buying this card.

Other Thoughts: Many people I believe are buying this card and expecting to run it on their sparkle power 450 watt PSU and then bash the card (and of course AMD) when things go south.

Another thought on the whole bleeding heart Nvidia fans that drive around with "Low Power" flags waving everywhere. Has anyone (besides myself and a few others) actually sat down and did the math as to HOW MUCH you are actually saving with a Maxwell vs Hawaii? How many people are running GPU's at %100 all the time? The complaints really don't hold water. Just the typical Red vs Green fanboyism that is a he said she said debate of everyone repeating the words of a few.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat GPU, when it's not Defective

Pros: It runs games like butter especially on a 144hz monitor.
Great for pretty much every GPU related thing you will need/want.
Packaging protects everything and was very easy to assemble in a mid tower setup.

Cons: Uses a very large amount of power, I think about 500W. I have a 1000W PSU and it runs it fine but I'm definitely cutting it close.
Defective-Only worked for a couple of weeks after I installed it, then stopped working and wouldn't let the computer boot or even display anything. I sent it back to Newegg with the RMA ready to go and a new one is on the way, but it was fairly annoying.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this card is awesome and does 4K Gaming better than anything else I've seen, and it deserves 5 eggs if it works fine, I'm only giving it three because it didn't.

5 out of 5 eggsCard is rock solid

Pros: Ok so tested the card to make sure I didn't get a dead one due to reviews stating black screens etc. I due to believe it's people not doing there homework. Yes I uninstalled all my drivers and reinstalled and it was acting up, I redid the whole install with ddu tool from wagnard tools and wow made the difference. Could not use sapphire oc utility anymore but instead I use msi afterburner which does very well. The sapphire utility kept crashing no biggy had the issue with my 2x290s and so decided to switch to msi and bam works great. Killed 3d mark firestrike with a score of 17000+ paired with my 5930k.....This card has sold me on single card solutions even though it's a dual card, the whole experience has resolved the issue I was aiming to get rid of and that was stuttering....All my games play well maxed out at 2560x1080 on lg ultrawide 34" paired with my asus 144 24" for side monitoring and videos. This card is a beast and has sold me on never going to dual card set ups ever again lol

Cons: Cooling system has a kink in the hose that's hard to fix due to poor packaging. card is out my system stretched to length to help get rid of the kink before I put back in my system.

Other Thoughts: Card was well worth the 739$ price I paid. I see it now bordering 800$ and saw it early January hit 999$ glad I got the 739$ price.
Those wondering what temps you may get under custom loop here's some ideas on mine. I have a 400mm and a 260mm ultra thick rad to cool my loop and I barely hit 40c while in ps2 or bf4 and final fantasy realm reborn. Cpu is oced to 4.3 and card is stock at the moment.

1 out of 5 eggsAwesome card, when it works

Pros: Awesome card, great for gaming, great for 4k, great for a lot of things, and surprisingly cool.

Cons: Ports started to fail about 4 months in. Can barely have one monitor plugged in. 2 monitors makes computer get stuck or just not boot. 3 monitors worked in the beginning and doesn't work anymore. Have tried many different monitors of all resolutions varying from 720p to 4k, many different cables and adapters, and still the same issue. Trying to RMA the card to see if I could get a replacement but SAPPHIRE has no customer service number, you have to file a ticket and wait for a response (!!!!). If I had known this, I would have spent 600 dollars more an an ASUS card.

Other Thoughts: Such a shame honestly about this card, it was a great card and played games well. AMD needs to step up their games when it comes for timely updates, 4 months after the release of Shadow of Mordor and still no update to use both GPUs on this card. This is definitely the last AMD card I buy, hopefully the RMA works and nVidia does better when it comes time to replace this card.

5 out of 5 eggsSome benchmarks vs., 7970 Ghz

Pros: 3D Mark beats 98% of other computers

Cons: Down to minimum FSP 20.56 on Dirt 3 Ultra

Other Thoughts: I would have just added this to my previous review but could see no way to edit.

I run three monitors and put all games on Ultra.

The previous card, an XFX 7970 Ghz. edition, was not a bad card at all, although things could get a little jumpy now and then in high-action FPS.

3D Mark previously was 6780, and with the 295x2 it is 13916.

Sniper Elite 2 in Ultra before/now: Avg framerate 36.34/99.70
Minimum FR 17.75/30.2

My system is Intel I7, 3770 Ivy Bridge, 16G memory. It can get pretty hot during some of these tests (stock air cooler) but the 295x2 stays cool.

You should consider this card if you are running multiple monitors or 4K. If you have only a single monitor something like the 7970 would do you fine.

It is mostly overkill, but it is fun to see what the peak of technology is, and usually doing that is more expensive than $750. Even with this setup, I have to say it is not perfect. I see slight stutters now and then. I still occasionally lose. :)

5 out of 5 eggsEasiest way to a killer system

Pros: Most powerful single card solution
Cost down to about half launch price

Cons: Card is large
Watercooler is a potential failure point in the future
You may be having a midlife crisis

Other Thoughts: Do not use mini-Displayport to DVI cables -- they will not work. I suspect you need active adapters to go to DVI from the mini display ports. Mini Displayport to regular Displayport cables work great, and you can mix these with the existing DVI port on the card in Eyefinity.

Card does need power but I am running it on a Corsair HX750 (750W) and it has been fine. I would go with a bigger power supply if I didn't have this one already. I have monitored power draw with the UPS it's all attached to, and this power supply should be fine.

Radiator is pretty simple to install if your case is large. No problem in a Coolermaster HAF932, it just replaced one of the fans.
