5 out of 5 eggsExcellent product needs one more change...

Pros: Dear XFX, so far I am really enjoying my two RMA'd replacement R9 280X in Eyefinity and 24" LCD's.

Cons: I have a few concern about these cards. Why is there no better Crossfire interconnection solution for DD R9 280X when using two cards in 16x PCIE slots? Like a riser extender to clear that very tall shroud. So now I have both cards sandwich together because no one has or created a longer than 4” crossfire bridge. In other words my 280X are not running as cool as they could be. “Sad face” good thing I’m just running these cards with stock speeds.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card, finally good price

Pros: Finally a good price, got the card within 2 days. Great card, low temps and running everything on high with 3 monitors.

Cons: As some have said, the card is very large but not a problem with my case. The price is finally good after the coin mining has died down other wise would have had one in Christmas 2013.

Other Thoughts: I see other reviews stating the temperature is very high but I have not had any issue, running at 50 C with full load and my case isn't exactly a wonderful cooler.

5 out of 5 eggsInitial impression - fantastic

Pros: Temps great for me on factory clock settings. Playing FarCry 3 on Ultra. Max temp I've seen is 72 deg C, but most of the time it's under 70. I have temps and clock speed in OSD of MSI Afterburner. Clock stays solid at 1,000 and temp normally stays below 70. I couldn't be happier. Getting 60+ FPS in FarCry 3 with Ultra settings and 1080p.

I'm running a water-cooled FX 8350, and this single card on a Antec Earthwatts 650. No problems.

Haven't overclocked yet - haven't seen a need.

Cons: It is HUGE. I had a Sapphire R9 280, and this one is longer than previous. I have a CoolerMaster HAF and had to take out my xtra HDD bay (It's made to be removable). MAKE SURE YOU MEASURE YOUR CASE.

Other Thoughts: FINALLY! Prices are getting close to where they should be. I've had good luck with XFX on rebates - hope that continues. Prices are still high without rebates - the rebate sold me. The coin miners are still causing heartache with gamers driving up AMD prices, but it's improving.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat card great price

Pros: free shipping,rebate and promo code= $279 i paid for this card. did i mention a free copy of BF4 even though the promo was over,thanks XFX. i have a sapphire 280x that i paid $319 for BUT the overall price and warranty is why i grabbed this one. it is a long card but i still have 2 inches left in my case after installing this card. no heat issues or anything else and i dont O/C so i could care or less about the speed since the rest of my system will pick up the slack. to the others complaining about no freebies,WOW! just be happy you didnt pay $499 for this card.

Cons: N/A

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card great support

Pros: Card runs cool and quiet seems to run everything I try on max settings(BF4 ,World of warplanes). Support is good, they sent me a whole replacement heatsink/fan when one of my fans started making noise and after I replaced it I was back in business.

Cons: Not much bad except maybe the price now. I got it for 300 back before price gouging. At this price it was a great deal.

Other Thoughts: Lifetime warranty makes it worth getting over some of the other brands.Would buy again if the price wasn't so hIgh to run in crossfire mode. But ones really enough.

2 out of 5 eggsDisappointingly Hot Mess

Pros: *Affordable R9 280x
*Stylish, thin fan hood
*Free Battlefield 4 game
*Decent performance at stock clocks (800mghz)
*Drivers recognized nicely (stable) in Win7, Win8 and Linux.
*Voltage unlocked

Cons: *Runs hot as all HELL!
*Cooling system, specially fans, are a total joke!
*Deceptively long, it measures nearly 12 inches (30cm)
*Power hog, TDP 250watts but XFX recommends a 750watt PSU (?!?) needs a 6 pin + 8pin PCI-E power plugs
*Missing a back plate which other manufacturers (ASUS) include. The weight of the card will warp the PCB and possibly the motherboard in the long-run
*Cannot Overclock very well, especially compared to other manufacturers
*Boost ready is a joke, it's barely stable at 1080mghz

I've been having heat issues with this card from the moment I've installed it. The idle temps are 40c when I first boot into Windows, but keep in mind the clocks are throttled down to 150mhz and 300mhz respectively while in 2d mode.
Once a game is loaded the clocks go back to factory settings and the temps spike to 70c within 5 minutes of starting the game. At 1 hour game session it reaches 85c.
I have tried different fan profiles and I can swear that it doesn't make a difference, I can't even detect a change in noise levels. So I basically run my fans at 98%-100% ALL OF THE TIME!
What really has me stumped is that when I run benchmark software such as Heaven I get 84c and the VRam chips hit 110-115C, which concerns me since I don't want to cook my card.

And before anyone starts, I have been assembling since 1997. I know a thing or two about cooling, cable management and proper ventilation techniques. I have this card sitting in a full ATX case, with (2) 200mm fans on top for exhaust, (1) 200mm in front as intake, the corsair PSU bottom mounted with fan as intake, 140mm mounted beneath HDD cage as intake, (2) 120mm Corsair fans on the H85i as exhaust, (1) 60mm fan on the NB cooler, (1) G.Skill Ram cooler and now (1) 200mm fan on the side panel blowing over the GPU.
So I basically have cold-air rising from the bottom and hot air exhausting from the top. And can still feel the ambient temps in my case get up to 44c thanks to this card, plus after 2 hours of gaming the hot air exiting my case feels like a hair blow dryer.

Other Thoughts: I used both Catalyst and MSI Afterbunner to overclock and this card doesn't seem to like going above 1080Mhz gpu and 1560Mhz memory--even with upping the voltage, which will add more heat!
It is listed as 800Mhz with "BOOST" to 1000Mhz, but that is a joke. Since the reference card is meant to be 1000Mhz where is the boost? I understand that the Black Edition of this card is 1085Mhz, so they won't go letting this card beat that when they can up-sell you the next model.
Frankly, I've resigned myself to running it at stock speeds and under-volting it to keep it from going over 85c.

It saddens me because I've seen friends and others OC their 280x (different vendors obviously) past 1100Mhz mark without any issues.

If I could, I would return it and get another card, or continue saving up for a 290x.
I'm not some fanboy, since I used to have XFX 7850s black editions in Cross-fire, in a mid-tower no less and never got this hot or had problems OCing.

I regret this purchase and wish I had gone with R9 270x Toxic from Sapphire or MSI.

Atleast this room heater hasn't crashed on me...yet! But something strange did happen after installing the latest Beta drivers...I now have an unidentified PCI input device on my hardware list. Trying to figure out what the hell that is.

Also, XFX I appreciate the free BF 4 game but how do you have better rewards for lesser models?!
You mean to tell me that you'd rather entice customers to get the 260 or the 270 cards with 3 or 4 free games and I won't even mention the free gaming mouse pad free at BB with purchase of the 270x.

I guess me dropping 3 hundred on your winter heater of a card is not worthy of a reward. Or even a case badge.

I will certainly be moving from this card asap, the moment I can resell it.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Ashboy,

We appreciate the extensive review. The VRMs can get as hot as 105'C when running heaven and valley at the same time... if its above that, i would encourage you to inspect the thermal pads on the VRM to see if they are dried up.

Anyway, if you have any questions, please contact us at neweggsupport@xfxforce.com.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Very Fast: Open CL in LuxMark 2.0 was 2270; Unigine Heaven 4.0 F/S 84.8, Score 2137, Min FPS 10.7 and Max FPS 170.5. Slight OC (1052 MHz GPU, 1526 MHz Memory) in CrossFire with HD 7990 yielded unbelievable 7052 LuxMark

Runs Cool and Quiet

Looks Great, Nice Build Quality, Shipped with Protective caps on all ports

Cons: Underwhelming cardboard package around card detracts from unboxing experience, but the card was fine.

Other Thoughts: Some reports of cards running hot, imo, must be the owners' setup. This card reportedly works in Hackintosh since OS 10.8.3 and fine in Mavericks. (As do all 79xx Series AMD except dual-CPU HD 7990. Apple controls all Mac OS drivers, so this is not the fault of XFX either way.) BF4 promotion may be over, but the code from XFX was easy to get and worked for me. This card and my experience with XFX has been 5-egg all around.

3 out of 5 eggsXFX R9 280X Review

Pros: Solid performance for a R9 280x after some tweaking, unlocked voltage.

Cons: For a 300+ dollar graphics card it still didn't qualify me for Radeon rewards. On XFX's website it states a 270x qualifies for 4 free games, a 260x qualifies for 3 free games my 280x doesn't qualify me for anything?!

Other Thoughts: For a GPU in this tier I'd expect to get a promo before a 270x definately before a 260x and yet both these mentioned cards have Radeon reward promos on XFX's website yet my much more expensive card doesn't get anything. That alone would make me think twice before buying XFX again.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello JMarca,

Promotions are tied to the SKU's of the card, this being an r9-280x-tdfd, was eligible for BF4 up until last month.

If you have any more questions or concerns, please let us know. neweggsupport@xfxforce.com

Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsOnly for windows

Pros: Works if I boot in to windows.

Cons: Drivers are terrible for linux.
Does not work with OSX.
Cannot be returned.

Other Thoughts: Probably a nice card if you use windows as your main operating system, otherwise stick with nvidia.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry you are having issues with this card. The AMD driver page at amd.com has a special link for the Linux based drivers which should be fully functional.

If you have any questions, please contact us at neweggsupport@xfxforce.com.

1 out of 5 eggsSuffers from screen jump in 2D

Pros: Nothing out of the ordinary.

Cons: This model suffers from a known and annoying screen jump in 2D, for example, in Chrome when GPU and memory clocks are near idle but is fine under load in 3D gaming. Do a Google search for "R9 280X screen jump". Same exact issue as with the XFX 270X that was fixed with video BIOS update but there's no fix for XFX 280X. Even though XFX support is fully aware of the issue, they're dragging their feet trying to reflect the blame on power supply or system but the issue carries over to another system that's running fine with XFX 290X.

Other Thoughts: Poor after sale support makes me regret owning several XFX video cards.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, We're sorry you are having issues with this card.

There are currrently no known issue with a "screen jump in 2d." It is true that the 7000 series AMD GPU's downclock when idle, however, no issues should arise from it.

The 270X screen flickering bug was fixed immediately and it only affected 250 units.

We have an 800 number that you can call and ask any technical support question you wish, free of charge, Monday through Friday, in perfect California English.

If you are still experiencing issues with your card, please contact us.

800 880 3225.

Thank you
