SAPPHIRE Radeon R9 280X Dual-X OC 3GB GDDR5 overview

Product Overview


Always looking to deliver the best solutions to the user, even the base model in this family features SAPPHIRE’s highly acclaimed Dual-X cooler. Dual-X, with its two aerofoil fans, and graduated heatpipes, is a design which received industry acclaim in the previous generation of products. The SAPPHIRE R9 280X Dual-X model is the most cost effective member of the family and yet is still overclocked compared with the reference design to give users the best possible value for money in this performance class.

SAPPHIRE Exclusive Features



SAPPHIRE Dual-X Cooling Technology
SAPPHIRE’s new dual-extractor technology - Dual-X - a highly efficient multi-heatpipe cooler with dual fans providing quiet and very cool operation during normal operating conditions, and superb cooling performance even under extreme load.


Sapphire Trixx - Tweak Utility
For enthusiasts wishing to maximise performance, a new version of the SAPPHIRE overclocking tool, TriXX supporting this latest generation of technology is available free to download from the SAPPHIRE website. TriXX allows tuning of GPU voltage as well as core and memory clocks, whilst continuously displaying temperature. Manual control of fan speed is supported, as well as user created fan profiles and the ability to save up to four different performance settings.


AMD Features




AMD Graphics Core Next (GCN) Technology
Available on select, high-performance AMD Radeon R series and AMD Radeon HD 7000 series graphics products, the visionary Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture is a radically new approach to the design of a consumer GPU, making it a top choice for gamers who expect the best. Designed to push not only the boundaries of DirectX 11 gaming, the GCN Architecture is also AMD's first design specifically engineered for general computing. Equipped with up to 32 compute units (2048 stream processors), each containing a scalar coprocessor, AMD's 28nm GPUs are more than capable of handling workloads-and programming languages-traditionally exclusive to the processor. Coupled with the dramatic rise of GPU-aware programming languages like C++ AMP and OpenCL, the GCN Architecture is truly the right architecture for the right time.


Mantle Optimisation
There’s optimisation, and then there’s Mantle. Games enabled with Mantle speak the language of the Graphics Core Next architecture to unlock revolutionary performance and image quality. It’s a game-changing innovation developed by AMD.


AMD ZeroCore Power Technology
AMD ZeroCore Power Technology leverages AMD's leadership in notebook power efficiency to grant our desktop GPUs the ability to power down when your monitor is off, also known as the "long idle state." This is great for those times when you've stepped away from your PC to take a call, watch TV, or pop down to the store. Furthermore, AMD ZeroCore Power allows additional GPUs in an AMD CrossFire technology configuration to shut off when they're not in use-even the fan stops spinning! An AMD-exclusive technology, AMD ZeroCore Power ensures that unused or idle GPUs are as efficient as possible. Even the most hardcore gamer with an AMD CrossFire multi-gpu configuration benefits from AMD ZeroCore Power. Unused or idle GPUs are shut down until needed to conserve power.



AMD HD3D Technology
AMD HD3D Technology is supported by an advanced and open ecosystem that, in conjunction with specific AMD hardware and software technologies, enables 3D display capabilities for many PC applications and experiences. Your PC has evolved, offering unprecedented amount of games, photos and movies for you to play, watch, design, create, share and download in 3D. With the arrival of the latest in 3D technology you can now enjoy an enhanced visual experience on Stereo 3D-capable desktops and notebooks powered by AMD HD3D Technology.


AMD App Acceleration
Groundbreaking AMD App Acceleration technology helps you to enjoy beautifully rich and clear video playback when streaming from the web. Take in your favorite movies in stunning, stutter-free HD quality. Run multiple applications smoothly at maximum speed. Enjoy lightning fast game play and realistic physics effects


AMD CrossFireX Multi-GPU Technology
AMD CrossFireX technology is the ultimate multi-GPU performance gaming platform. Unlocking game-dominating power, AMD CrossFireX harnesses the power of two or more discrete graphics cards working in parallel to dramatically improve gaming performance. With AMD CrossFireX-certified AMD Radeon HD graphics cards ready for practically every budget and the flexibility to combine two, three or four GPUs, AMD CrossFireX is the perfect multi-GPU solution for those who demand the best


AMD PowerPlay Technology
AMD PowerPlay technology is designed to enable power saving profiles that help reduce power consumption when the GPU is idle or in minimal use in comparison to previous AMD products. This dynamic power management enables the GPU to automatically adjust power between low, medium and high states for a tremendous power efficiency advantage. For example, when receiving and composing emails little demand is on the GPU and it runs in a low state, whereas when gaming, there is high demand on the graphics engine and the GPU runs in a high state.


AMD PowerTune Technology
AMD PowerTune technology helps deliver higher performance that is optimized to the thermal limits of the GPU by dynamically adjusting the clock during runtime based on an internally calculated GPU power assessment. AMD PowerTune technology also improves the mechanism to deal with applications that would otherwise exceed the GPU's TDP. By dynamically managing the engine clock speeds based on calculations which determine the proximity of the GPU to its TDP limit, AMD PowerTune allows for the GPU to run at higher nominal clock speeds in the high state than otherwise possible


AMD Eyefinity 2.0 Multi-Display Technology
The next generation of AMD Eyefinity technology is here, featuring all-new support for stereo 3D, universal bezel compensation and brand new display configurations. Face it: the best just got better: The enhancements for AMD Radeon HD7000 series include: Stereo 3D-multi-display stereoscopic 3D support via DisplayPort 16K X 16K maximum display group resolution-output up to 268 megapixels per GPU.



AMD Catalyst
The AMD Catalyst Control center has been designed from the ground up to give you a stable, reliable experience and also allow you to control every aspect of your GPU quickly and easily. Quickly and easily add and configure additional displays to your GPU. Make your games look better and run faster. Enhance the quality of playback of your movies and online video content.
