Sapphire R9-280 Dual-X Review

Sapphire have once again graced me with an opportunity to review one of their graphics cards, a step up from my previous review. Today I will be taking a look at a Sapphire R9-280 Dual-X a card that is now because of the recently released Radeon R9-285, two steps above the Sapphire Radeon R7-260X I reviewed a few short weeks ago.

 

About Sapphire

SAPPHIRE Technology is well established as a leading manufacturer and world-wide supplier of innovative graphics and mainboard products for over a decade. Its AMD Radeon based products are just as well known in the mainstream PC markets as they are to the gaming and performance graphics enthusiast. More recently SAPPHIRE has expanded its global reach to Professional graphics solutions and Embedded system solutions.
Innovation, performance and value for money have always made SAPPHIRE the supplier of choice for enthusiast graphics. SAPPHIRE was the first company to introduce fanless silent cooling solutions based on heatpipe technology and continues to offer this technology in its ULTIMATE series. It was again first to introduce the revolutionary Vapour Chamber Technology to graphics cards, giving quieter and more efficient cooling to high performance graphics products with its award winning Vapor-X product lines. Product variations such as the SAPPHIRE TOXIC Editions deliver users higher performance straight out of the box, and give enthusiasts greater opportunities for performance tuning.

Anyway, let’s get onto the specifications of the card itself.
