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).

AMD Power Tune 2.0 Smart Performance Tuning

Fixed Clocks Speeds are a Thing of the Past, Power Tune Dynamic Performance Scaling Determines the Best Clock Speed in Real Time

AMD PowerTune technology is a significant leap forward to better ensure that performance is optimized for TDP-constrained GPUs. AMD PowerTune technology helps deliver higher performance that is optimized to the thermal limits of the GPU by dynamically adjusting the clock during runtime based on an internally calculated GPU power assessment. AMD PowerTune technology can dynamically adjust the performance profile in real time to fit within the TDP envelope.

Improved Multi Sample Anti-Aliasing MSAA Technology

Smooth Lines make the Difference Between Itty-Bitty Low-Quality Graphics to a 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: Pro's about this card is it improved my Video gaming experience to a whole other level. I went from 30-40 fps from my old video card to 60-90fps on this one. Take in fact that i'm going from an Xfx 6770HD Radeon to the Xfx R290x was a major boost. Slim can be quiet if not running under a heavy load. The light up logo looks great with my theme of White/Black/Gold/Silver colors.

Cons: Cons would be that this card gets hot fast. Not sure if its the heatsink, or the fans, or the way how it distributes heat evenly through the card. I do have to take the side panel off while playing one game since I moderate the temperature as it reaches up to about 80c. I've read somewhere that Amd says that their cards can handle up to 95c but I don't even want to let it get there. If you're not playing with headphones on, or have audio turned up when the fan kicks up to 100% It sounds like you're about ready to take off on a flight. Other than these two cons the card is great.

Other Thoughts: Other thoughts would be, if you buy this card and wish to void the manufactures warranty by putting an after market cooler or going with liquid cooling by all means do so. I'm waiting for the warranty to go out before I decide to go with liquid cooling.

Manufacturer Response:

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

The warranty void stickers do not apply to north america, we have a modder friendly policy that allows you to water cool. Also, this card has a lifetime warranty with registration, so if your waiting for it to end before water cooling it, you may end up waiting until its too late...

If you have any question, please let us know

3 out of 5 eggsLightning fast but dissapointing

Pros: This card is lightning fast and looks really cool in my pc. I love the light up xfx logo on it.

Cons: I got 2 of these cards to run in crossfire but so far I have had about 6 bsods. I had two bsods the day before I posted this review I have tried every fix I have found and nothing solves it If I have anymore bsods I will probably have to RMA both cards.

Other Thoughts: I was really hoping these cards would be better. This was my first experience with AMD and it has really been very frustrating. Right now I would really have to suggest going with Nvidia.

5 out of 5 eggsR9 for Gaming

Pros: Works wonders in Battlefield 4, NFS Rivals, AC: Black Flag, running all of them at ultra settings (1080p) . This Card is ready for anything this next gen of gaming is going to throw at it. I've got it paired up in Crossfire, two of these beasts will rip right through anything, looking forward to see what they can do when Star Citizen comes out! XFX really did a great job with the cooling design, I haven't had any temps over 70, well under the 95C that AMD has rated the cards for. The cooler is sleek and very modern looking, something other 3rd parties should be moving to. The XFX logo glowing is just the icing on the cake.

Cons: Uses a little more juice than the reference design, but that's the price for performance. Also the price is still at an extreme due to the whole boom in litecoin mining, I haven't delved into that, but to each their own.

Other Thoughts: This is my second XFX 290X, the other is reference, I compared the two cards separately first, the Black OC edition really irons out all of the problems with the reference cooling and power 2.0 works wonders.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great card, awesome performance in my gaming rig.

Cons: Card is really big and I had to un-rivet my hard drive bay, move it over, and reattach it. Also the XFX sigh on the card lights up white so if you have a lighting theme in your comp it might change the appearance inside the rig.

5 out of 5 eggsTotal video game destruction

Pros: destroys every game you can imagine. BF4, COD Ghosts, MC, 7 days to die, any game you can think of = destroyed.

Cons: price, im broke now, runs hotter than anything I have ever seen. You can heat your house with it. Make sure you have proper airflow in case

Other Thoughts: Video card from other other side of reality
