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 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).

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.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: So far okay. I play this with StarCraft II and so far does not lag at all. Even my 7970 lags some. This is by far the best card I have had.

Cons: Price! Other than that...None!!

Other Thoughts: It is big, but I have a Rosewill BlackHawk Ultra Super Tower and it fits just fine.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: This Card has run everything I have thrown at it on maxed out settings with a overclocked 3570k and a z77a mobo. This card runs very frosty after hours of hardcore play and never gets above 78c. This card was made to game and at a high level. This is the second Sapphire card I have purchased and I got to say they make a great product. I have been overclocking my R7850 for awhile now and is still running great.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This card runs everything I throw at it maxed out settings 60fps plus at 1080p. I upgraded my R7850 and I got to say it is a night and day difference the way games are running on it. If you want a card that stays cool and for sure makes 1080p gaming top notch then get this card. I can't say for sure about 4K gaming on it but I have a Asus VG248QE 24-Inch and it really uses the 144hz.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Card

Pros: I could not ask for a better card since i went from the sapphire 7850 to this beast of a card. I can play bf4 at full setting with no problems and im loving it and it also runs quiet and Decently cool.

Cons: People have complained about the driver disk but i never had a problem with it. I was more concerned about how big the card was and i mean its huge. If u have a mid case or small case for that matter u better make sure u can move the hard drive bays or have no wires hanging around.

5 out of 5 eggsSAPPHIRE TRI-X OC 100361-2SR Radeon R9 290X 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Fantastic Graphics, runs very quiet and easy to install, vey quick to get into multiplayer games and great to see things you never saw in a game, well worth the buy. The amout of fans keeps this baby very cool.

Cons: Card is very wide and long just made it into my full tower case, they need to be smaller.

Other Thoughts: Try to make the video cards smaller so you have more room to but other items into your case.

5 out of 5 eggsBest card I ever owned

Pros: Quiet. No lights. Nice picture. Maxed out settings at 1440.
you tube videos look better than before, everything looks better than before. bought open box for 287$.
not a 970 so its not an intentionally gimped product.
mature drivers.

Cons: driver disk that came with it pretty much useless. just go to amd and use auto-detect to get drivers.

Other Thoughts: really debated for waiting for the 300x line, but in the end this was the best card for me and the price is reasonable. LAst amd card i had was the 5870 and its still going strong. hope this one lasts me 4 years too.

for 2560 x 1440 this card is what you need. better and cheaper than a 970. and better value than anything over $300.

5 out of 5 eggsRunning fine after almost a year.

Pros: Even playing at 2560 X 1440 the fans are quiet. Now i'm not playing too punishing at the monment. We'll see how it holds up to GTA 5 when it comes out.

Cons: See where some are DOA or die soon after install. No joy if it happens to you but it is what happens in the manufacting of hi tech devices these days.

Other Thoughts: Thinking of getting a second one just before the the Radeon 390X's come out.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Card, Terrible drivers

Pros: It's fast and runs what I need to run at high resolution.

It's also quiet.
Great price point.

Cons: AMD drivers are no where as good as Nvidia.

Case in point, one of my secondary monitor won't detect since I updated the drivers to 14x. It works with older drivers and if I plug it into another computer. I found out that some monitors are simply blacklisted with the newest drivers.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Price/Performance.
Even with the standard Overclock, never goes above 79C at max load with 3 monitors.
Bought knowing it would be a large PSU sink, this is false, pulls less than 270Watt near full load.

Cons: Having Ordered from Newegg, if I need to Return the product, there may be complications with their customer service. We will see, for now no issues.

Other Thoughts: This product is a real steal. At the price point of $319.99, you get everything and more,. Come the 3xx release there will be a price drop. Crossfire will be very cheap.

4 out of 5 eggsMonstrocity Gigantor GODZILLA!!!

Pros: -Uber Power!
-Almost as powerful as 2x 760s in SLi. Sometimes more powerful.
-Every input you can imagine
-Destroys every game at maximum settings on 1080p

Cons: -Massive, Gigantic, Way TOO BIG!
-No, this is will not fit in your case most likely. Don't even dream about it.
-No, your power supply probably will not be powerful enough to run this card
-Raw, untamed power, at the expense of sheer size, power consumption and heat!

Other Thoughts: My Cooler Master CM690 cried for mercy... And it's a huge, heavy case which never had a problem fitting any monster card before. Remember the movie "Pacific Rim"? This card crawled out of that rift. It is coming to eat you...

I was barely able to jam the card in... Just barely.

Shame on you AMD. If you cannot match nVidia, don't try to do it at expense of size! Yes, you made a card that can match and beat equivalent nVidia cards. But at what expense? Is it really worth it?

My 600w Power Supply is running it, but I cannot hear it's silent screams and cries for mercy...

This is madness!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Card

Pros: This card is super quiet compared to my old 4890! The three fans keep it super cool!!!! I absolutely love this card and wouldn't give it up. I barely even hear my computer now! I ran the Furmark stress test on it. At the one minute mark it was still at 67*C, at the two minute mark it was at 75*C and at the three minute mark it was only at 76*C!!!!!!! I am really shocked at how efficient the cooling is on this card!!

Cons: THIS THING IS HUGGGEEE! It barely fit into my case, and its about 3 inches longer than my motherboard. I didn't think it would fit because I have an open case (the Antec Skeleton). But I got it to fit after some finagling. The only thing is that the DVI ports are single-link, which I didn't realize. Had to go buy more new cords to get it to connect to my monitors. Because I have the Skeleton, the bright yellow-gold color is kind of annoying, but I am glad it just doesn't glow that color.
