The SAPPHIRE R9 280X TOXIC Edition features the exciting new Tri-X cooler design that uses three sophisticated aero foil section fans together with industry leading 10mm heat pipes to give unrivalled cooling efficiency. The stylish shroud is designed not only to look cool, but also to manage the airflow over the card for maximum cooling effect.
This new cooler, along with a high performance 10-phase power management system and high quality components, such as the SAPPHIRE exclusive double sided Black Diamond chokes and long-life solid capacitors, has enabled SAPPHIRE to deliver stable higher power levels whilst keeping temperatures low. As a result, the TOXIC edition features extreme factory programmed over clock, delivering the best performance in the industry for this product family. In addition, at the touch of a switch, the user can choose between UEFI and non-UEFI platforms. This card has great performance at a good price, especially when paired with an AMD FX-6350 (OC to 4.3 GHz). This card also has plenty of VRAM to run 2 1080p screens. The card also comes with a stable factory over clock, and if your case has good airflow, you can take the OC even higher. The card also looks nice as well in cases with side panel windows. The Sapphire branding on the side of the card glows yellow-orange when it is powered-on. In addition, a clean looking black metal back plate gives the card an even more premium style.
The SAPPHIRE R9 280X TOXIC Edition is equipped with an output of 1 HDMI (with 3D) with support for Deep Colour, 7.1 High Bitrate Audio, and 3D Stereoscopic, ensuring the highest quality Blu-ray and video experience possible from your PC. With the ultra-high HD resolution, this graphics card ensures that you are able to support the latest generation of LCD monitors, 1 Single-Link DVI-D to supports Digital monitors up to 1920x1200 resolution and 1 Dual-Link DVI-I that is equipped with the most popular Dual Link DVI (Digital Visual Interface). This card is able to display ultra-high resolutions of up to 2560 x 1600 at 60Hz and supports up to 3 display monitor(s) without Display Port and provides 5 times Maximum Display Monitor(s) support.
The Advanced GDDR5 Memory Technology provides twice the bandwidth per pin of GDDR5 memory, delivering more speed and higher bandwidth. Choke is an important component of the graphics card. By working with the component engineer, Sapphire's patent pending choke is 10% cooler and offers 25% more power efficiency than a normal choke. The graphics card will be more reliable and saves energy. Improved reliability and better over clocking are possible by using only high-polymer, aluminium capacitors that possess far superior characteristics than regular aluminium capacitor for a longer product life. When operational temperatures drop by 20°C, the product life span is extended by a factor of ten, and when the operational temperature increases by 20°C, the product life span only decreases by 10%.
The new 28nm GCN Architecture's more efficient process technology puts more transistors in less space, enabling a dramatic increase in processing power and PCI-Express 3.0 delivers double the bandwidth per lane of PCI e Gen 2 for faster GPU, maximizing the performance from your GPU when paired with the latest platforms.
