SAPPHIRE's new R9 290X Vapor-X with 8GB of RAM available in the UK

Need a GPU with 8GB of RAM? SAPPHIRE has its R9 290X Vapor-X with 8GB of RAM available in the UK

OverclockersUK has a great new exclusive from SAPPHIRE, with its new SAPPHIRE R9 290X Vapor-X 8GB GPU. This is something we posted about a while ago, but now the GPU with a bunch of VRAM is on sale, but it's quite expensive at £600 inc. VAT (or £500/$848 ex. VAT).

The SAPPHIRE R9 290X Vapor-X 8GB has 2816 SPs, 1060MHz Core Clock, 5.6GHz on the memory, two dual-link DVI ports, an HDMI port, and a DisplayPort output. There are two 8-pin power connections for power, with SAPPHIRE recommending you own a 600W PSU to get it working. SAPPHIRE's amazingly efficient Vapor-X cooling steals the show here, teaming up with the 8GB of RAM for a high-five of GPU goodness.

 

SAPPHIRE has made its entire stock of Vapor-X 8GB GPUs for OverclockersUK, which means that there needs to be some serious interest outside of the country for the company to make more GPUs. I'm sure there will be though, as I'm one of them. Give me four of them please, SAPPHIRE.
