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 eggsAvoid this card like the plague

Pros: none. I would give Zero eggs if i could.

Cons: Addendum to my initial review of this product. Bought card, worked for a week, then fans died. No bar code due to the rebate, so i cant return it. Understandable, but still a little irritating, especially since the serial number IS ON THE CARD. So i contact XFX support, set up RMA, send out my BRAND NEW $350 card i never really got to enjoy to the manufacturer for repair. Again, repair, not replace. After they looked at for a week, they said the cooler and fans stopped working, but now that they've replaced them its working fine. So after the week of waiting for it to be shipped back, i pop it into my PC, and guess what? No screen at all! Not even the bios! I know its not the computer or the monitor, because they both work just fine with my XFX 7870DD or my ASUS R9 290X card i bought while this one was being repaired! I have a Corsair 850w platinum power supply so i know power isn't an issue either. I feel like this is complete failure in customer service. Its one thing when the new product out of the box doesn't work. Unpleasant, but these things happen. But for the "repaired" product to still not function as advertised? Yikes.

Other Thoughts: Couldn't be more disappointed with this purchase. Bought an XFX product specifically because i was pleased with the XFX 7870 DD card i had. Not pleased at all with XFX repair quality. I feel like a bought a $350 dollar paper weight. If i could return this card for half of what i paid for it i would do it in a heartbeat.

1 out of 5 eggsNo display after only about an hour of use !

Pros: The card looks great but that"s about it.
Lifetime warranty... Get it! you'll need it

Cons: Very, very Disappointed with the card.
It has the lifetime warranty and trust me, there is a reason for that.
I didn't even play a single game with it, and then all of the sudden no display on any of the ports! really?

Other Thoughts: I'm waiting on a respond from the support team, so now I Have no video card, good thing my MOBO as integrated video otherwise I would be without a system.
Very disappointed!
The card simply did not worked! if you can get any sort of warranty do it! Trust me! Not my first XFX card, you get sucked into the lifetime warranty part and you will be using it, last XFX card I'll buy.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsBlack Screen issue, XFX replaced

Pros: Card is a great value which is why I chose it. Card had issues but XFX replaced it (see explanation below).

Cons: The first card I received suffered from a black screen issue which is apparently common with AMDs R9 cards. I could perform all normal PC tasks with no issues, but gaming would crash to a black screen within a few minutes. After much troubleshooting and googling etc, I eventually RMA'd the card to XFX. Not only did they replace my card, they sent me an 290X instead. The 290X is working flawlessly and I was very pleased with XFX's decision to stand behind their product. If you experience a similar issue I highly recommend that you dont waste your time trying to fix the card, just RMA it!

Manufacturer Response:

Excellent, im glad it worked out...

For anyone who sees this review...


XFX No longer replaces 290a's with 290X's, please dont break your card on purpose trying to get the free upgrade!!!! We ran out of stock and upgraded a few people to 290X

Thanks!

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect for "Budget Enthusiast" builds.

Pros: 1. Looks great with solid black PCB and white LED logo.
2. Performs surprisingly well.
3. Still pretty quiet at load.
4. Excellent price/performance ratio.

Cons: 1. Only thing is I wish there was a logo on the side of the card as well or instead of the front of the card, to make it more visible.

Other Thoughts: If you have the extra $ to invest in a sapphire 290, then I would, but you honestly cannot beat the performance to price ratio of this graphics card.

Manufacturer Response:

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

1 out of 5 eggsCrash, Crash, Crash!!!

Pros: Good Graphics when it works.

Cons: New build computer and Graphics card would constantly crash computer while playing any type of games leading to Blue screen. Did some research online and thought I found a fix for it (As this seems to be a common problem). Fix lasted for a month now where back to the crashing and blue screen, now even when I do something as simple as watch a video I recorded. Bottom line wish I had did my research then i could have bought a better GPU.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Damian,

We're sorry you are having issues with your 290, have you already contacted our support for assistance? Although it could be GPU related, there are other factors to consider, like RAM or the PSU.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Graphics Card

Pros: Best graphics card I have owned! Plays amazing on BF4, CoD series games, Far Cry series games. I have not found a reason to complain so far. Make sure you have the right motherboard / chip set and adequate power supply. Running 8 core FX-8350 on Asus Sabertooth 990FX/GEN3 R2.0, powered with EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 750 G. Also fan is quieter than my XFX Radeon HD7950.

Cons: Nothing to report.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

4 out of 5 eggsgreat card, works like a dream

Pros: Ordered a second for crossfire and worked smoothly, custom cooling for even more fun as these cards are known to run hot even with high fan settings

Cons: Newegg dropped the price less than a week after i installed it

Other Thoughts: awesome performance for the money, be sure you have adequate cooling for any type of crossfire setup and a beefy psu to handle the wattage draw

5 out of 5 eggsawesome video card

Pros: 512-bit and bridgeable.
New bridgeable design no more crossfire.
Looks really cool inside of my case (Antec Illusion GX500).

Cons: Too long for another

Other Thoughts: If it was only an inch short I could buy another and bridge them.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for the great review Matt, we're thinking its time for you to upgrade that PC Chassis

If you have any questions, please let us know.

3 out of 5 eggsWrote the Review Too Soon

Pros: It looks great.
It runs well.

Cons: It runs hot.
It's a bit power hungry...
It seems to deteriorate...?

When I first got it, it was running BF3 on ultra at about 80-100 fps (1080p)... It seems to have dropped to the 40-70 fps range, moreso at the 40/50 range... Based off of these results fps benchmarks for the r9 290, the minimum fps on 1080 ultra for this game was between 70 and 80 fps... Wasn't expecting a drop... It does still spike into the 90's/100's, but only when there's not much of a draw distance... It looks like I will have to run crossfire just to get the constant performance I want?

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

It sounds like you may have other influences that changes the consistent performance. Are you running any 3rd party software or new addons?
