SAPPHIRE NITRO Radeon R9 380X 100383NTOCL 4GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Dual-X OC Version w/ backplate (UEFI) Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Shorter than the Sapphire 5850 CODMW2 edition that this replaced (2009). Has four times the memory. It also handles my three screens somewhat well (see cons). For the price, it is handling what I throw at it.

Cons: Drivers...

Come on AMD - why, why, why is this thing underclocked so badly that the screen flickers when using more than one monitor (eyefinity)? 300 MHz is too slow for eyefinity, or even two monitors. This can be proven when I started F@H. As soon as the GPU clock ramps up, the flickering stops.
This is even occurring while using the "Crimson" driver.
No fault of Sapphire. Deducted an egg due to AMD.
Will look at ways to keep the GPU clock from running under 400 MHz may help.

Other Thoughts: Great video card, overall, but the underclocked GPU issue with eyefinity needs to be seriously addressed.
