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.

Partially Resident Textures PRT Technology

Radically Change the Detail of Your Games from Flat to Realistic

Even in the latest titles, gamers may have noticed that games often reuse or repeat textures, particularly on the ground or in background scenery such as mountains or trees. This is because increasing the physical size or number of textures in a game can have a negative impact on the performance of a GPU. PRT is a radical technology that hopes to break this cycle.

2 out of 5 eggsMy first purchase I regret making on NewEgg

Pros: It was cheapest card available under the R9-270X label.

Cons: Only one DVI port works. XFX customer support is frustrating to work with.

Other Thoughts: I bought the card on 07/26/2014. I had only a day to build a new system test it out and send the UPC before the rebate expired. After sending the rebate in I tried to connect a second monitor and found the picture contains glitches or is completely black. Tried several different monitors. Tried only using the DVI port in question. Tried different cables, software settings and driver versions. Nothing fixed the problem.

Contacted XFX customer service. First they tell me I need to use an active adapter if I want to connect a DVI monitor to the DVI port. After explaining I'm not trying to use the display port. They told me I would have to return the card to NewEgg.

Returned the product to NewEgg, waited a few weeks for the RMA process. Now NewEgg tells me they can't replace the card, because I don't have the UPC. Not only am I out the shipping cost, I think I'm going to be stuck with a card that has never worked correctly.

Manufacturer Response:

Helo,

we're sorry you had issues with this card. I'm not sure why a technician would tell you to use an adapter, unless you were trying to run 3 monitors. Please contact us at neweggsupport@xfxforce.com. If the card is faulty, we can always get it replaced under the XFX Warranty.

Thank you

-Price is aight.

Would give a five star but no direct from manufacturer options

Cons: -Heavy, itty bit of sag after a year.
-200+ Npc's in about six inches of screen caused slight frame rate drop but it recovered.

-I don't own more.

Other Thoughts: -Poor customer support on new eggs part.
-Free gift caused problems with my pre-paid card.
-Problems wont be fixed for a week and my 4 computers will be put behind completion schedule, New-egg wont give me a department lead to fix the problem.
-lost money on taxi and cheque fees only too not receive the discount on the graphic cards and gained a bigger loss in the end.
-Temporarily new egg has 315 of my dollars.
*Well I got jack.

Pros: In the highest quality setting in games that I own, over 90 fps while keeping quiet and cool.

Cons: I can't add more sense I maxed my case for gpus.

That's it

Other Thoughts: Got a good deal on this gpu.

Beats all if not most nvidea gpus in the same price range. Hard to beat

5 out of 5 eggsfollow up

Pros: Great, forget when i bought this but it's been a few months at least. Still rocking and my cpu (fx 8350) bottlenecks this thing about 80% of the time.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Over clocks alright, mines litecoin at about 400 kh/s, dark coin at about 2 mh/s. Decided to get a used Reference xfx r9 290a enfc for 280 to the door. For mining darkcoin and an upgrade for when i play games. This 290 should unlock to a 290x witha bios flash, we'll see when i get it.

Anyways I highly recommend this card unless you can spare the extra 100 and are willing to buy used, then go big or go home :)

4 out of 5 eggsQuality Cards

Pros: The cards have very, very good heat dissipation and hot air removal at the expense of size. The card is rather large, but it does have two big fans and A LOT of copper.

They're very easy to manipulate. I have my fans set to custom speeds and the core clocks upped slightly because I have the fans to facilitate a little overclocking. That's all through catalyst of course, and if you don't have it, make sure you get the latest drivers and the raptr software.

Cons: In relation to the power of the card, it's rather large.

Other Thoughts: I bought one of these about 5 months ago from best buy, and bought and got another one today. I hooked them both up, and I noticed a performance increase. Nothing incredible, but It certainly is something. With the downing of depth of field and shadow res to normal on Tomb Raider, I get 60-70 fps with everything else on Ultra, but that is probably because I'm a little short handed on the CPU end of things. I'm happy with this build, mostly because I'm done throwing money at it, but If you're going to get a 270x, I would recommend Sapphire. Sorry XFX, but their cards are cheaper, go on sale more often, and are considerably smaller. I would not have ran into the problems I did installing my two XFX's if they had been smaller, and being cheaper would have been a bonus. With the payout that I payed, I think I overpayed a little on the performance I got, but with other card companies, you could get more then what you payed for. Not saying I'm not happy with what I got, but I feel like an Nvidia buyer that overpayed for hardware.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Got this card for a new custom build and I'm very happy with it so far. Another reviewer mentioned an 850-watt PSU and I agree with that. When getting everything together I went with an 850-watt to make sure this card was adequately powered and haven't been disappointed.

I've been playing a lot of games and they all look gorgeous. For the price, this is a fantastic card.

Cons: None so far

5 out of 5 eggsEGGGGGCELLENT!

Pros: So this is an update to my other two poor reviews.

I first got a card that emitted burning smells. The distributor replaced it. Then that card emitted the same smells after 3 weeks. This time I RMAed it to XFX. XFX replaced it but the replacement card overheated (first to 99C, then later to 101C!). XFX had me replace the thermal paste and rerun the test. 96C this time, which is 1C over the max this card should go. So, I RMAed this card too. They sent me a new card to replace and this runs UNDER 60C and handles everything I've tossed at it so far very well (even Far Cry 3 on 1920x1080 Ultra, despite what the other reviewer said).

All-in-all, I am very happy with XFX technical service. Tons of patience and very willing to work with me.

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: Also used a XFX HD 6870, which also performs great for its age.

1 out of 5 eggsawful...

Pros: it can run low quality games on the highest quality well.. and thats all

Cons: This card boasts that it can run fairly high quality games, when i cant even run a game like far cry 3 on low settings with out this card crashing my system... i am extremely dissatisfied with this purchase i bought this combo with the hopes that i would finally be able to play any game at least on decent settings, this card wont let me run anything without completely crashing my computer....

Other Thoughts: dont but this card and read reviews before you purchase anything

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

This sounds like a case of software issues. Please contact us at neweggsupport@xfxforce.com for a quick troubleshooting/fix guide. I am certain we can help resolve this.

Thank you
