  • SAPPHIRE Tri-X Cooling Technology – Sapphire exclusive Triple fan design pushes out the heat more efficiently than standard dual fan.
  • HDMI (with 3D) – Support for Deep Color, 7.1 High Bitrate Audio, and 3D Stereoscopic,  ensuring the highest quality Blu-ray and video experience possible from your PC.
  • DisplayPort 1.2 – Doubling the effective bandwidth of previous DisplayPort implementations, DisplayPort 1.2 now includes support for Multi-Stream, allowing you to drive up to four separate monitors from a single DisplayPort 1.2 connector (requires DP1.2 monitors or Multi-Stream compatible hub), Stereoscopic 3D monitor support  and adds support for high quality, lossless, 7.1 channel audio formats.
  • Advanced GDDR5 Memory Technology – GDDR5 memory provides twice the bandwidth per pin of GDDR3 memory, delivering more speed and higher bandwidth.
  • 28 nm GCN (Graphic Core Next) Architecture – The new 28nm GCN Architecture’s more efficient process technology puts more transistors in less space, enabling a dramatic increase in processing power.
  • DirectX® 11.2 – The tessellation performance on AMD Radeon R7/ R9 series is up to 2X faster than the previous generation, and DirectCompute performance is also faster to accelerate advanced post-processing, filtering, and anti-aliasing techniques. Direct X11 games has never looked this good.
  • Cutting-edge Quad HD display support (4K Support) – The display resolution on AMD Radeon HD7000 series is quadrupled to the resolution of 4KX2K( 4096X2160 ) from the outputs of DisplayPort 1.2 and HDMI.

Packaging and Accessories


Like all Sapphire products, the packaging is pretty straight forward. Inside the outer cover, which lists all of the key features and necessary info, is a plain box holding the graphics card and accessories.
Included with the card itself is your standard assortment of accessories including the driver CD, installation guide, power adaptors, and a 6 foot HDMI cable, which was a nice little bonus.
