If the R9 280X toxic is the same as the 7970Ghz Toxic it will be the best in terms of performance higher overall clock and coolest as per the 7970 results from real world users.
Did they really lock the card though?

This review also says that the VaporX approach by Sapphire would be the best in terms of cooling, tbh i find it so awkward that any of these could beat the Matrix.... i am not saying they are lining i'm saying it seems rather weird.
Further benchmarks would shed some light on this...

I agree with you smile.gif
One review is not enough.

But so far, until more reviews come out, i can't say "Matrix is better".
Plus it costs alot more than for Vapor X, Top or Toxic cards.

Agreed, over here the matrix is about 530$ The toxic is 470$, that's a pretty good difference. Also the Toxic comes with better accessory's if you ask me.

Toxic :
CrossFire™ Bridge Interconnect Cable
Mini-DP to DP Cable
8-PIN to 4 PIN x2 Power Cable
HDMI 1.4a high speed 1.8 meter cable(Full Retail SKU only)

Matrix :
a Diablo III mousepad
Speed Setup guide and driver disk (always get the very latest drivers from AMD.com though!)
ROG case badge (hard, metal one!)
CrossFireX bridge (the R9 280X will CrossFire with HD 7970 series cards too)
DVI to HDMI adapter
VGA Hotwire connectors to wire up to ROG ‘Extreme’ motherboards
Replacement VRM heatsink for watercoolers and LN2 overclockers


EDIT : Sapphires says that a 750W PSU is required just for 1 of the TOXIC cards... not Crossfire ... is this for real ? i have a 700w Seasonic biggrin.gifLink

I just checked the PSU requirement for some 280x cards .. :

Powercolor = 500W
XFX = 500W
Gigabyte = 600W
Sapphire (all 3 models) = 750W
HIS (both models) = 750W

I guess you should be OK with a 700W PSU tho.

Eh ? Will a 600W R3 Newton be enuff to handle R9 280X + overclocking it and a haswell 4770k?

EDIT:
It seems the 750W specification is just nonsense.

I do not know what to say about that, apparently the total system power consumption of the toxic is 470W, seems awfully exaggerated even for such a high clocked card ...mad.gif

I just send a message to Customer Support regarding the high power drain of the Toxic 280x, ill post here when i get a answer.
But tbh i do not think you can run it with that 600W PSU, especially not with a proc OC

EDIT : how can one measure how much power his system is using, do we have some kind of software ?

Asixe from the fact that people's cases can restrict airflow, and we don't really know a lot of other specifics that could drastically effect temps, did you not bother to look at the clocks in the first pick?

1260/1925 is a pretty hefty overclock for these cards I believe and will likely carry along with it higher temps. (It OC like a beast Imo)
