    Sapphire focus a lot on the VRM’s – which many AMD partners DON”T. Glad to see you pointing it out in this review

    The Sapphire 290 is the better value card, its only 6 phase, not 10, but it overclocks well and saves you £130. enough to get a good new power supply

    Not much of an AMD fan but that card looks sexy.
