HASH(0x99f678b8) out of 5 stars Powerful video card, but don't forget to upgrade the BIOS! Dec 10 2013
By Gerald Verzosa - Published on
Powerful cards but is very hot and noisy when the fan is running at full throttle. It requires a 6-pin & 8-pin power connections. It comes with power cable adapters in case your computer's power supply doesn't have any available.

I had ordered 2, but one of them always had a Code 43 error by my operating system (Windows 7). I figured out that I had to upgrade the BIOS. The BIOS upgrade also included a powerpoint presentation which made the process simple. Here's the link in case you need it also.

HASH(0x99f67cc0) out of 5 stars Very good card compared to the 290x May 24 2014

This card will handle everything at 1080p with all the settings turned up to the highest. I recently purchased a 21:9 monitor at 2560x 1080p and noticed very little, if any difference, when it came to performance. However you will probably get better frame rates turning AA down a setting or 2. During games the card does get sort of loud, but it's not as bad as everyone thinks. If you want to hear loud, turn the card up to 100%. I did that in cgminer, and I don't think I will ever complain about in game noise again. During games the card gets to 40 or 50% and doesn't feel too hot. This card also gives about 850 kh+ if you have the settings right. I practically stole this card at 340 after a 30$ gift card, and I'd highly recommend buying this if you can get it for 400 or less. The main difference between this and the 290x is mostly clock speed, but most people will never notice the difference because it performs so well anyway.

HASH(0x995ca108) out of 5 stars Why I love the R9 290 Feb. 16 2015
By Dormantis - Published on
Even tho I'm using a reference design on a PCIe 2.0 due to the lack of a fx motherboard that supports it, the graphics card performance is still awesome and i can play the most recent games to it's full potential. I guess I'm only not giving it a 5 star rating due to the fact that the reference design temperature is quite high when compared to the non reference coolers. But in overall it's a awesome card.

HASH(0x99f67a08) out of 5 stars It is hell,Hot as hell ,and fast as fire!! April 2 2014

Am not an AMD fanboy by any means,but I lost 3 laptops and one card due to faulty nVidia cards ( 8800 GTX 512 , HP DV6 Special edition 8400 GS, Toshiba satellite 205 Sli1 GT 8600 SLi , and finally my HP DV3 ), My 4 years old Radeon HD 5850 is still going strong,and this card really atracted for its Price/Performance ratio ,so I decided to go with it .
When I decided to buy this card it was fluctuating hard on the price side of the story ,so as an experienced and patient buyer I decided to put it in my shopping cart and wait,check my card every so and a while ,it was selling for roughly 550$ (well above my budget),after 3 days I woke up early in the morning and it was selling for 399 $ ,so it was a no brainer buy.
Now for the good side of the story,this card is really fast ,I was able to achive 100 FPS + in most games ,execuse me for not writing a full review regarding its power cause you can find those review any any tech site ( TomsHardware ,3d Guru ,Anandtech etc...),am only reviewing the consumer experience, and it is fast ,well never let you down in 1920x1080 maxed out in any game ,and that is waht matters.
I never experienced a slow-down issue due to heat capping or throttling ,and this is cause I already know the overheating issue of this card ,so to be clear,this card is not meant for small cases with limited ventilation,I have Cooler Master 690 III case ,and am using a total of 2 140mm Fans on the top, one 120mm fan at the bottom,one 200 mm fan on the front ,beside that I use a closed loop liquid cooling for my CPU with its own 120 mm fan ( Cooler Master Siedon 120v) .My bottom case fan is directed to be intake,so it blows cold air right into the card Blower.
The dark side is that even with all these precautions ,the card still hit 94 degree celesius, I used MSI afterburner to manually throttle the card to maximum 80 degrees,and I didn't feel any noticeable change in frame rates ( with exception of few cases ).
The other downside ,is that AMD's Never settle reloaded bundle is just a scam ,when you hear all these applauses for NSR game bundle and see all the advertisement you will think that it is a guranteed deal if you buy on of the qualified cards,this is just a lie ,unless the dealer you buy from offers you a copoun for the bundle you are not going to get it ,and simple Aamzon was'nt bundling copouns with the high end cards ( 290 and 290x) ,and I didn't know that untill I bought the card,they were offering the bundle only to second tier cards ( R9 280x and below ),so don't be fooled by all the hoax on the internet,it is not guranteed that you are going to get the bundle!!!
For anyone who doesn't care for the heat (some times the noise associated with it) and not interested in the bundle games ,this card is second to none.

HASH(0x995ca144) out of 5 stars Great Products, Great Price Dec 13 2014
By Jonathan Schwartzbauer - Published on
I've been a fan of Radeon products since the ATI 9800Pro. They've always given me excellent performance at the price point I need. When I was introduced to Sapphire products in 2006, I new I had a new board maker to use. Prices are almost always lower than other board designers, and the quality is impeccable. The R9 290 is no exception. This GPU gives Titan crushing power at a fraction of the cost. I can run ANY game at extremely detailed settings at 1080p or 1440p with acceptable to excellent framerates. Even though I only have the reference design without the advantage of Sapphire's cooling technology, I can overclock and push the card to its limits. It is incredibly stable, driver support is excellent, and I can enjoy my games like never before! The added bonus of AMD's Mantle Technology has made a big difference in Battlefield 4, where every frame counts. Thanks Sapphire and AMD!
