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.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Dollar for dollar has to best bang for the buck.
Quiet, Cooling is great.
Overclocks using CCC easily from CPU clock 833 to 1120 MHz
Memory 1260 tio 1350MHz
Runs Farcry4 Ultra settings

Cons: needs a good Power supply to keep it happy
people complaining must not power it correct especially if your overclocking it.
A little overkill with a Corsair HX850 but I have room to expand.

Other Thoughts: get this one

1 out of 5 eggsXFX Support

Pros: Card is not obnoxiously long and fits well in case. It also runs very quiet for a high powered card.

Cons: Will not run stable at 1000MMz. Read a lot of reviews and support articles from third parties which recommended lowering to 850MMz. Still crashes at lower settings. Created support ticket at XFX force with no response for three days. I would have to say earlier posts about quick phone responses for customer service are bogus as the XFX site doesn't even have a support phone number. I tracked one down on overclock.net and it says XFX is currently closed and "revamping" their phone system. I want a working card before Christmas or a refund.

Pros: it is a cheap and very powerful card but if you can go with a r9 290x if you can.
this card looks great and runs quite.
only under full load do I hear it.
runs my 1080p monitor like a champ.

Cons: wish it came with black cross fire cable and for a case badge like I want to show it off if I bought it.

5 out of 5 eggsBeast.

Pros: This card... Wow. Very nice design. Great, quiet cooling solution. You can't see much of the heatsink (a good thing). Runs Battlefield 4 on Ultra settings 8xmfxaa at a stable 50-60 fps. Nice card to pair up with my FX-8320.

Cons: None to state so far.

Other Thoughts: A glowing white LED XFX symbol on the right of the card for extra looks and show off ability!

Overall, I am impressed by the design of this card and the GDDR5.
Well done XFX. Well done.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for the great review! We appreciate the positive feedback.

This model shouldn't have the white LED, that is for the 290s and 290x's.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat So Far

Pros: - Plug and play - literally plugged the thing into the mobo and 5 minutes later I had my 3 monitor setup working and I was playing Far Cry 4 on Ultimate graphics settings
- Crushes any game I throw at it. As mentioned above, this thing plays FC 4 on ultimate, smooth as butter.. Gotta love that
- Nice looking card, but watch out, for those of you who have cases which are on the smaller end of the mid size range, this is a behemoth of a card, and may not fit. Look into the size specs and measure it out prior to purchasing.
- Runs quite cool, I don't think that I will have any problems relating to this card overheating
- Limited lifetime warranty.. count me in
- Running this card off of a Corsair TX650M PSU, and there appears to be no power issues, so the 750W requirement which XFX states isn't really a requirement. FYI the card requires one 8-pin and one 6-pin PCI-e power connectors.

Cons: Sort of nitpicking here - size is a bit large, but honestly I have no problems with this at all

Other than that, no cons as of yet.. Let's hope it stays that way.

Other Thoughts: I have never had a problem with an XFX card. I had an XFX DD 6950 (which this card replaced), which has been going strong since I got it, with absolutely no issues. I 100% recommend XFX for desktop graphics, based on past experience.

5 out of 5 eggsXFX R9 280X TDFD--WOW! Great Card

Pros: I got this card a couple of days ago as an upgrade to a XFX HD 7950 DD. Wow! Great card. Faster Quieter and bigger. Much more beautiful design. Couldn't be happier.
I ran a few quick benchmarks and here you go.
All settings were at the highest possible in all benchmarks.
Dirt 3: Avg: 103.92 fps, Valley 1.0 Scorer 1712 avg. 40.9 . Heaven Benchmark on Ultra Extreme: Score 844 at 33.5 fps, minimum 7.4 and high of 77.1 Tomb Raider: min 42.6 avg 57.5 max 68 fps.
Temps never exceeded 58C at 44% fan, Idle is at 32-34C. Silently.
Note: 10.6 inches long 500 watt minimum PSU, I run a HX 750.
Excellent card!
This is my 4th XFX (AMD) card. Never a problem and quick answers to all my questions.

Cons: Wish the price had come down sooner. Or I had more money.

Other Thoughts: When the 300 Series comes out, the price may drop a little more on this card, If there are any left.
Buy it NOW!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The price right now is great in relation to performance. I've had the card for about four months and have had no problems. I have been playing Crysis, Battlefield 3, and Dragon Age origins. The games look and play great at high settings. I have always used Nvidia products until now. I am really pleased with this purchase.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For the money, the R9 280X can't be beat.

5 out of 5 eggsXFX R9 280X

Pros: Beautiful card., Heavy and large at 10.6 inches.
Runs cool at 32C idle and 58C on Heaven Benchmark at max settings, 1920X1080, full screen, Extreme HD,8X AA, Score 1712. Min FPS 19.9, MAX 79.7.
Runs great on a Corsair HX-750 PSU. 32GB DDR3, 3 HDD's and an FX 8350. 8 fans.
This card is also very quite. Highly recommended!

Cons: Card is so large I had to move the coffee table (for air flow) in my Corsair 900D (Lol)

Other Thoughts: Super fast AMD cards for not much money. Best deal on the market at this time. The up coming "Capt. Jack" (300 series) will blow Nvidia out of the water, however. If you want the fastest, wait for that one. Mean time this 280X is excellent.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Card!

Pros: I feel compelled to write a review of this product considering the many negative reviews on here about artifacting. First I need to say that I ordered this card on a Sunday and and it was on my door step the next morning, even though I only used the free shipping option! I was expecting it to take 5 or 6 days to get to me so I was SUPER happy about this. A+ to newegg for that one. Now as for the card itself, it runs great so far. I upgraded from a GTX 550ti and the upgrade is extremely noticeable. I've played Dragon Age: Inquisition for a couple of hours today on Ultra and it looks fantastic and runs very smooth. No artifacts at all. Now, I've only used this card for less than a day and that may or may not change but as of right now I'm extremely happy with this card. Plus right now it's super cheap for $200.

Cons: Not necessarily a con but something to watch out for. It's a big card. Make sure you measure the space in your computer to find out if it'll fit. At first it looked like it wouldn't fit in my case but after moving my HDD and SSD drive to different slots I was able to make it fit.

Other Thoughts: Very happy with this card so far and you can't beat the price!
