Sapphire R9 380X Nitro Retail Box and Bundle

The card that we are looking at today is the Sapphire Radeon R9 380X Nitro OC 4GB, which is sold under part number 299-4E308-100SA. This is custom, factory overclocked card that carries an MSRP of $239.99. For that price you end up with a card that is said to be ~7% faster than AMD’s R9 380X reference card thanks to the 1040MHz core clock and 1500MHz memory clock. The AMD Radeon R9 380X reference design has a base clock of 970 MHz and a memory clock of 1425MHz. This is also a Sapphire Nitro series card, which means you get Dual-X GPU cooling with ball bearing fans and copper heatpipes, black diamond chokes and for the very first time in the Nitro series a backplate!

      Could have been issues with whatever drivers they were using. Whenever I see results that are that far out of whack, I usually suspect that the tester is using early, pre-release drivers that came with the card rather than the most recent ones that can be found online. ATi/AMD is notoriously bad with programming drivers for their cards which is why DX12 being less driver dependent is a godsend for AMD fans.
