Sapphire Radeon R9-280X Toxic

Our Final Thoughts

When I first got the Toxic R9-280X it looked like an impressive and beastly card but I was in no way prepared for what this card could really do.

The out of the box clock is very high and offers a very high level of performance straight from the shelf. Overclocking can give you even more should you want to put in some effort to find where your specific card will be happy at.

The value of the Toxic card is simple to see as in some tests it can eclipse a 780 which is double its price and easily defeats the 770 which is 50 dollars more as well which makes this an amazing value for gamers looking for a high level of gaming punch.

Any gamer who may be in the market for a nice enthusiasts level graphics card with a great value would be out of their mind to not consider this card.

Pros: Cons
  • Amazing Performance
  • Tri-X Cooler
  • Excellent quality VRM
  • Plenty of display connectivity
  • Dual 8 pin
  • UEFI/Standard BIOS
  • Insane Overclocking ability
  • Solid Backplate Design
  • Cooler can be a bit noisy

    Now this is what I’ve been waiting for! X2 of these in XFixe would be over-kill, but at a price that’s just incredible. (Oh and so much for those dipp-sticks saying AMD had done away with the XFire bridge.)
