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.

2 out of 5 eggsShould not have gone with Sapphire

Pros: It worked great when it was working. The temps were nice and low and games played and looked very nice.

Cons: As others have said, it works great and then it prematurely fails. I had it installed for three days and then it failed. I wasn't even playing a game when it happened. I was on the internet checking email.

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately, I have been too busy to install the card in my pc until after the 30 warranty with Newegg. Now I have to go through Sapphire support... I should not have to pay so much money for a card like this then have to pay more because it doesn't work. They should be paying the customers for the exchange if they want to keep them. I was hesitant to buy a card from Sapphire in the first place. This just confirms my anxiety. Never again. Maybe I should try the green side next time.

3 out of 5 eggsgood until it died

Pros: Ran great, allowed me to install basic pc needs.

Cons: Lasted me 4 hrs and then I lost input.... Very dissapointed for a defective expensive graphics card

Other Thoughts: For 370 Dlls it shouldn't fail at all...

5 out of 5 eggsWhy I Like SAPPHIRE

Pros: Quiet, smooth operation of games. Allows running maximum settings on almost everything, the only exception I have found is running Shadow of Mordor at 200% resolution scaling while having all other settings maxed (including Anti-Aliasing) caused framerate issues but it ran perfect with everything maxed at 150%. I wouldn't say that is any negativity against it as from what I've read you should turn off Anti-Aliasing when over-scaling in it.

I have had no issues with this running anything and loved it so much I actually bought a second, though I with crossfire did not require full screen gaming (understandably though) as I much prefer to use full screen windowed vs full screen exclusive mode.

Cons: Sometimes gets a little loud when pushing the limits but loudness aside it keeps it from overheating so it isn't really much of a con for me.

Other Thoughts: I have used SAPPHIRE products off and on for years and they have always been reliable and perform well for me. The R9 290X is no different, it performs amazingly well and runs smooth with all games I have tried it with. I now run 2 cards with crossfire and could not be happier with it's performance. The noise is minimal most of the time and they do not even come close to the thermal maximum when running high-end games at maximum settings. I am a long time gamer and I strongly recommend SAPPHIRE and the R9 290X Tri-X OC.

2 out of 5 eggsWas Great

Pros: Worked great for about 24 hours. Pushed impressive frames and the cooler was quiet and kept the card at about 25c on idle and 50c under load. Also ships with a HDMI cable in the box which is nice.

Cons: The card died in the middle of use, and I wasn't even doing anything graphic intensive. Had to pay $15 to get it replaced which is quite annoying. Sapphire had really low quality support and they don't reply in a timely manor. Knocking an egg off for that.

Other Thoughts: I've been using a Sapphire Radeon 7870 for about a year and a half now, and I also bought it used on e-bay, so I had no problem buying another Sapphire card, but this 290x just died so oddly and randomly, I can't figure out why. I will redo my review when I receive my replacement card and see if its any better. Like I said, I like this company and my Sapphire 7870 is still going strong, so I think my replacement will do fine.

5 out of 5 eggsSapphire AMD Graphics Cards, Why I love them!

Pros: I've been purchasing Sapphire AMD graphcis cards for a long time and have had relatively no issues with them except one but the turn around for replacement was quick and easy and the support was helpful. They've all performed well and met my every need for fast high FPS gaming. From the 6000 series to the R9 290X cards. The R9 290X Tri has by far been my best experience as it plays everything i could possibly want at the highest settings without any stutter or slow down and makes every game look amazing. It stays nice and cool at idle and doesn't get too hot when playing even the most demanding game. You can't go wrong with this card and you can't go wrong with Sapphire!

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: none

1 out of 5 eggsWhen it was working

Pros: Great When it was working

Cons: This card did not work for more than 2 weeks.

Other Thoughts: First card failed in 2 weeks. Second card failed in 4 days
Now 3rd card died in 1 week and now it is over NewEggs 30 days RMA.

The system is new build and is working fine.

I already try
1. install different version of driver - not work
2. change different PCI slot on MB - not work
3. set fan speed and monitor Temp without over 60.
It failed even when just browsing website.
Now try to contact Sapphire for support.

3 out of 5 eggsWorked great until it died...

Pros: Great performance
Low temps

Cons: HIGH price. I have a disposable income, and would not recommend anyone buying this that doesn't.

After purchasing, the card ran great. Just this morning, I woke up to black screens, and could not get the card to send monitor signal in any way. I put an old card back in my machine and it worked fine. I am just out of the 30-day RMA process from newegg so I'm trying to work with the manufacturer to get it replaced.

Other Thoughts: Was really hoping that I would have been one of the lucky ones that didn't have issues with this card. I guess I wasn't

5 out of 5 eggsSapphire Tri-x R290x

Pros: Runs very cool for a 290x. Maxes out about 70c under heavy benchmarking, low to mid 60s in heavy gaming.
No issues whatsoever like the black screening some have mentioned. Pairs well with the 8350 I installed at the same time.

Saw a solid improvement in Firestrike with the latest driver package. 14.9.

Cons: It is about an inch longer than the Gigabyte 7870 it replaced.
This was not an issue for me as I had already removed the lower drive bays in my 912 HAF case.
Had to be careful with cable routing, but again not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: Have not OC'd the card or tried to. Temps make me think there is a fair bit of headroom there, but since it already performs great, I do not see the need. Only thing I would gain is a bigger Firestrike score.

Will have to consider upgrading to a higher res. monitor to take full advantage of it. 1080p currently.
