XFX Ghost Thermal 2.0 Technology

The New and Improved Floating Heatsink Design of XFX Graphics Cards Provides the Ultimate Cooling Solution

XFX's exclusive ghost thermal 2.0 design creates a floating heatsink with open airflow between the PCB and the cover so that air can quickly ventilate off the card while simultaneously cooling the core process and the components. We've also made major advances from our first generation which includes a heat tested light weight plastic to create an overall lighter thermal which reduces the physical strain on your GPU.

Up to 13dB Quieter and 45°F (7°C) Cooler Than Our Competitors

The Exclusive XFX Double Dissipation Design is Cooler and Quieter than Others

XFX's exclusive dual fan double dissipation design utilizes two larger fans which run at slower RPM than comparable single fan solutions which must run at much higher RPMs just to barely achieve the same cooling needs. Because of this design, XFX is able to achieve up to 13dB lower noise than the competitor while simultaneously increasing the overall cooling by 45°F (7°C).

Improved Multi Sample Anti-Aliasing MSAA Technology

Smooth Lines Make All the Difference Between Itty-Bitty Low-Quality Graphics Versus Smooth, Realistic Graphics

MSAA smooths out the jagged edges of a curved object. A black curved line on a white background displayed on a computer screen will have some jaggedness along its edges due to the inherent limitations of using discrete pixels to display the image. Anti-aliasing smooths out this jaggedness by filling in the white spaces between the jagged edges with varying shades of gray which gives you the smooth soft shadows, crisp sharp lines of buildings, and crisp tiny details in clothing that make your experience truly realistic.

1 out of 5 eggsSo disappointed...

Pros: Tech support answered my call in two rings?

Cons: Non-functional straight out of the box

Other Thoughts: I saved for quite some time to purchase this card. When it finally arrived and it was fully installed, I power up my system and...black screens. Fans on the card are spinning, but no signal is sent to the monitors. I think to myself, maybe I didn't connect everything properly. I pull the card back out, and carefully put it back in, making sure each connection is seated and locked. Power back on, and nothing. I put my old card back in and it starts right up.

I called technical support and they answered my call extremely fast (which is, unfortunately, my only positive here) but after 20 minutes on the phone all I'm told is "Everything you have should be compatible. There's no reason it shouldn't be working. I don't know what to tell you", which left me quite upset.

My previous card was an XFX HD 6750, and I was pleased with it for quite a while, so I had no apprehension about purchasing another card from XFX. Now I have a sour taste in my mouth and will have to wait even longer for a replacement card to be returned. Hopefully the next one will actually work...

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry you are having issues with your card.

If your system is truly compatible, then you must have a faulty GPU, PSU or Motherboard PCI-E Slot.

Did you test the other varibles with a comparable card? or this card in another system?

Please let us know.

2 out of 5 eggsWont Buy Again

Pros: Stays cool, Is quiet.

Cons: Unreliable playing old and current game. Poor Customer support that makes you feel guilty for even contacting them about failed cards.

Other Thoughts: Only reason I got this card was to upgrade from my XFX 6870 I bought here on Newegg awhile back. It was good card and back then XFX had people who cared. What went wrong? Or do they own give good support to Newegg buyers?
I replaced everything in my computer to diagnose this and I have to downclock this card for it to even run stable. This is the 3rd card they sent me. First one I bought from Third Party that was going out of business so I paid $200 for it. Customer service treated me like second rate citizen. The first card failed so they sent me another card. I was having same issues except this time it wasn't freezing it was artifacting on boot up and in windows. From there I sent it back and they told me it passed the "Crysis test" Who the hell uses crysis to test a high end graphics card? Its old software get something new and test it for more then the 3 minutes you test it for. My current card is doing same thing I gave up dealing with there customer support and tried to deal with it but now I am at my wits end. I can't afford another card at this moment and I just want something reliable.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Magwolf,

Unfortunately these cards do not carry a "transferrable" lifetime warranty. It is possible to get them replaced under warranty if they are new enough, however this being your 3rd card that tested "No-Fault" is highly irregular. We want you to be satisified with your purchase and I look forward to helping you anyway I can.

5 out of 5 eggsQuite but Powerful

Pros: Quiet, Ultra settings a definite and quality, customer sat

Cons: Long card

Other Thoughts: upgraded from ATI 6670 and have no gaming concerns. I play the most taxing game ARMA3 and I can run on High-Very High settings with a 30ish FPS. All other games on Ultra 60 to 100 FPS: BF3, COH2, NFS all run on Top graphics. Make sure you have a FULL tower case. I had to move a HDD out of the way to fit this puppy in. You need a 8 & 6 plug PSU plugs. Do NOT use a split cable provided. You want full power for each cable. Im running a 900W and can accommodate 16gig-mem, 3 HDD, Phn II X4-965 and this card with no issues.

Thank you for the great review, we appreciate the positive feedback.

2 out of 5 eggsDriver problems

Pros: Very strong

Cons: I've been running it on Catalyst 13.12 since I purchased it over half year ago since those were the only stable drivers I could find at the time. AMD released new drivers, 14.12, so I though I'd give those a try too. Long story short, Catalyst 14 crashes on me within seconds to minutes of booting into Windows. I feel short-changed that I can't update to the latest drivers and take advantage of possible improvements.

Other Thoughts: Design flaw/annoyance, 1 HDMI, 2 mini-displayports. As far as I know, there isn't a major difference between mini-dp and hdmi, so why not put in more hdmi ports since more people probably have those cables. I had to buy a mini-displayport adapter.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

Thank you for the review. Have you installed the drivers without any 3rd party software running in the background?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Graphics Card

Pros: Have had no problems so far, it will run almost every game at at least a solid 60fps on highest settings (would be higher but games sometimes cap the frames at 60). Monitoring it I haven't had problems with overheating or getting close to a dangerous heat.

Cons: Have not notices any cons in the few months that I have had it.

3 out of 5 eggsA Loud Experience

Pros: The card installed easy and runs as expected with latest AMD omega drivers.

Cons: The card has been very loud when under load. It sounds whiny. I received it as a gift and I need my pc or I would send it back to newegg. I thought it was supposed to be quiet? Not sure if I got a dud, but I seem to be stuck. It works, but it is loud and whines while in games.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry you are having a coilwhine issue. It can be caused by the GPU, however, PSU's and any major power using/providing component can also be the culprit.

if you are still having issues, please contact us and let us know.

5 out of 5 eggsOKee DOKee

Pros: This is a good card, extremely easy to install drivers and get it working. Very quiet. I run max on my games. Most screens run between 35fps and 70fps. No heat problems. 3 Megs is good 4 would be great.

Cons: Just barely fit, but it did. It is bigger than any of my last cards.

Other Thoughts: The three megs of memory is just a little short for me. Should of got four.

1 out of 5 eggsProduct and RMA process

Pros: Worked great for the first couple of months. I was very pleased with the product.

Cons: Started artifacting only after 5 months and the RMA process was terrible. I felt like I was continuously pressured to believing that my card was fine when only to get it back and see the same issues arise. I was told the RMA process would take no more then 1 to 2 weeks and I had too wait over a month because of meaningless back and fourth. I got the ok to do a RMA from the company. So I packed up the product and paid the money to ship it only to be told that it basically was for nothing. It felt as if they tried everything in there power to keep from replacing my card and what do you know it worked. I am very disappointed in the product and process of which to RMA said product.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry you are having persistant issues with your 280X. The Back-n-Forth is typically caused when troubleshooting is happening when we know the issue doesn't sound GPU related. Unfortunately, sending it in for testing and it PASSING confirms it. We would be happy to continue to help diagnose this issue. Please contact us for more support.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this GPU

Pros: This GPU is amazing. Radeon 280x's are great GPU's. If you have a ridiculously big monitor then get a 290x (or a titan if you can afford it), but otherwise a 280x is fine. The 280x's are currently one of the best GPU's to get, you can't go wrong.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Make sure your case has enough room to fit it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: Great for 1080p gaming, could play everything maxed out on 1080p, looks good too if youre going for that clean look on your system with a side window.

Cons: only drawback for me is the power requirements as this card seems to be a little power hungry

Other Thoughts: had a little backtrack as the card burned out with the rest of my computer but newegg was quick to come to the rescue and replace the unit
