    Sapphire not responding to my RMA after 4 months!!


      Soooo, i have a Sapphire R9 280x Toxic, and i have an issue with frame drops, lock ups etc. i USED to have a 750ti that worked well, ran League @ 135+ fps (not the best i know) with the toxic im getting an fps anywhere between 17-58. same gfx setting, etc. i have a Corsair AX850 850w psu - plenty of power and a AMD FX 9590 CPU - more than enough for it to be bottlenecking it.

      Anyway - i have been messageing Sapphire via the correct channels since early Dec 2015 and havnt heard anything at all back from them. i have logged a RMA and it has had no response, at all - Please see image... (all the entries are from me)


      What can i do? the retailer tells me to contact sapphire and they will not help any further....

          We can help you to troubleshoot the issue and hopefully resolve it, but we cannot help with an rma.


          Please provide more information and we will try to help.

              I have tried every single piece of troubleshooting for this card i can find.


              So, i get a huge frame drop - e.g League Of Legends runs between 17-58 fps, my old 750ti ran it at 100-185fps. cinebench, heaven and firestrike benchmarks give a massivly reduced score im compassion to my old 750ti (which was only 2gb, this card is 3gb). some games make the AMD Catalyst display driver stop working all together - games such as CS:GO. im not tring to run these games on stupid settings either - they are being ran on moderate.


              The GPU never exceeds 20% of usage but is always at 100% power use.


              my specs are -


              AMD FX 9590

              8gb Corsair Ram

              850w Corsair PSU

              ASUS 970/PROGAMER Aura

              Latest catalyst drivers - and even tried past drivers

              Windows 10 64bit
