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. AMD TrueAudio technology empowers game developers with a programmable audio pipeline on the GPU, inviting them to put their unique artistic fingerprint on in-game audio in the same way that the programmable graphics pipeline brought unfettered artistic vision to PC graphics. 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).
  • 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 processor 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.

Got a semi-doa card EDIT::: Card still runs!!!! Drivers were unstable but AMD/ATI fixed them AS OF 11/3/17

Pros: Run fast and performs well.
EDIT::: I been abusing the hell out of this card 4 years later and it still performs splendid. It was a rough and rocky start but the kinks have slowly worked themselves out. Never buying a cutting edge "latest" video card too many bugs in them.

Cons: Overheats and locks up. Unstable random video card unresponsive blue screen.
EDIT:::::Card is watercooled and runs like a champion!

Overall Review: Love that it supports mantel.
EDIT: Love it can still play the latest games at 1080 @ 60fps

Great brand not good company(edit card failed JUST outside of warranty run away from this card)

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."

Card FAILED just outside of they 2yr warranty, Sapphire of course said "tough".

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.

Overall Review: 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.

Amazing!!

Pros: Completely slaughters any game you throw at it. The only reference I really have with graphics cards of any quality would be the r9 270x. But I can tell you the contrast between the two is huge. the 270 struggled to play dying light on it's lowest settings and was getting about 12 FPS which is unacceptable so I decided to make the upgrade to the 290. Fans usually don't even come on for a majority of the games I play which really is the only downside to the graphics card.

Cons: Fans are a tad louder than most.

Overall Review: The card is pretty long as per the specs but I expected that going in. It barely fit into my full tower case. If you're willing to spend the money to play any and all games on their highest setting this is definitely worth it.

BEAST

Pros: So for most people reading these reviews right about now they are probably wondering about GTA V performance,well let me tell you, this card does not disappoint. Such a great deal that i got for 300$, for 300$ it will beat any card in the remote price bracket. I was really looking towards getting a 980 but im glad i picked this card instead.

-Stays cool, right now it is at 37c idol and tops out around 71c in my case.
-Runs GTA V on max with minimal stuttering
-Is not as loud as you would think, at idol it isnt much louder than my old 270's.

Cons: none

Overall Review: Get this card

Cons: None as of yet

Overall Review: Great card- Would buy again

Eats video games for the lulz

Pros: I can play Far Cry 4 and BF4 on absolute max, and boy does this card make games look pretty. I also wanted to write this review after GTA V for PC being released and I have been able to run the game on max everything @ 60 fps at 1080p. It makes GTA look so beautiful, I love this card it handles everything I've thrown at it with relative ease.

Cons: It has a newer more custom cooler on it, its still pretty loud when you get it up to 100%, but I knew what I was getting myself into. I'm not a big fan of the colors but that's not enough to doc an egg, I'll probably paint the shroud to match my case in a year or two when the warranty runs out. I've had the card for 2 months now and still haven't received my rebate which is disappointing considering this is my first experience with Sapphire. Also, this card runs HOT, so don't be frightened by the 65-70c temps. I used MSI afterburner and set a custom fan curve, so that the fans are at 100% at 65c to preserve it, I'm being paranoid and careful.

It's a full 4gb of VRAM! yay!

Overall Review: I upgraded from an MSI R9 270x 2 gb card and I'm glad I did, it was worth the money and has changed my gaming experience on the PC. I probably will buy another one of these card in the future maybe in a few years when my system is dated and upgrade my PSU too. If you're worried about power for this card, I've seen some specs of people running it with a 650w so you could get by maybe, it is a power hungry card (don't cry about the extra 25 cents a month for electricity, I'm talking to you nvidia fan boys). All in all, I love this card, I would recommend it to a friend and would buy it again, I'm also glad I got it on sale. If you can get a better deal on a 970 get that just for the sake of noise level and power consumption but I'm an AMD lover and probably will be for a while.

For those curious of my set up:
FX-8320 OC'd to a mild 4.0 ghz
16gb GSkillz ARIES 1866 mhz RAM
Sapphire R9 290x Tri-X
EVGA 750w G2 PSU
Fractal Design R4 case w/ 5 fans
120gb Samsung EVO SSD
1.5 TB WD 5200rpm HDD
1.0 TB WD 7200rpm HDD
