Sapphire Unveils the Radeon R9 390 TOXIC Graphics Card

Sapphire unveiled its highest tuning air-cooled TOXIC variant for the Radeon R9 390. Targeted at the Greater China region (PRC, Hong Kong, Taiwan), this card features a swanky new VaporX vapor-chamber cooling solution, and the highest factory-overclock by the company for this chip. The core is clocked at 1120 MHz against reference clocks of 1000 MHz, and an untouched 6.00 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory clock.

The cooling solution consists of a large vapor-chamber plate, from which a number of 8 mm-thick copper heat pipes convey heat to two aluminium fin stacks, which are ventilated by three 100 mm spinners. A chunky, ridged, aluminium base-plate covers nearly every other part of the PCB, cooling the VRM and memory chips. Based on the 28 nm "Grenada" silicon, the R9 390 features 2,560 stream processors, 160 TMUs, 64 ROPs, and a 512-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 8 GB of memory.

Well... there was just one more rank above TOXIC we used to have from Sapphire and i wonder if it will ever come back (with or without watercooling)...

ATOMIC.

Nice, very high stock clocks, some cards are not reaching that speed stable overclocked regardless of voltage tweaks

That must be pushing 300w peak draw judging by wizzards overclocking tests of 390's

It's soooo pretty. Also that PCB seems to be the same one as the Vapor-X 290X.

Wow, nice clocks and a great card. Though what ruins it to me is the output options as I prefer the variants that have the extra DP's.

Sapphire Nitro 390s are sold out almost everywhere, so if they had designed the cooling anyway and have some boards left, why not? 390 offers very good price/performance ratio, Polaris or not ^^

Sweet card :) .

Am I reading the review correctly?

However, this is not its most "toxic" place, R9 390 Toxic also can open the nuclear, as long as the button is pressed to see the lights up and then restart the computer, it will morph into R9 390X Toxic
Then page 6 has bios switch position 1 = 390 (1120/1500 2560SP), then page 7has bios switch position 1 = 390X (1100/1500 2816SP).

Interesting.

I just bought an R9-390X Toxic card last month. but I haven't installed it anywhere yet. I want a second one for some tasty Crossfire goodness.

People will buy them. 390s pack a lot of performance inside. They're about to become a lot less expensive too.
So acceptable prices combined with decent chops = bought
