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 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 soltuions which must run at much higer 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 7°C.

Improved Multi Sample Anti-Aliasing MSAA Technology

Smooth lines is the difference between low quality graphics and smooth realistic graphics.

MSAA smoothes 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 smoothes out this jaggedness by filling in the white spaces between the jagged edges with varying shades of grey which gives you the smooth soft shadows, crisp sharp lines of buildings, and crisp tiny details in clothing that make your experience truely realistic.

5 out of 5 eggsRadeon Value

Pros: Excellent Image Sharpness
512-bit Mem & GPU Bus
Excellent XFX Cooler Design
Excellent Performer
XFX Quality

Cons: Size

Other Thoughts: This is the best Radeon card I have owned since the ATI Radeon 800 series. The image quality is second to none. The XFX DD cooler design is a big winner in both looks & performance. I love the 512-bit mem & GPU bus which enables this card to move a ton of data at lower mem & GPU clock speeds lowering the heat output but not the performance....there's just no substitute for real bandwidth. The price is very good for what you're getting. The only thing I can find to say something negative about is the card's size....this thing is HUGE!!! Had to mod my case to get it to fit....but won't knock off for it as the dimensions are given on the size of the card in the listing so no excuse. Have been buying EVGA Nvidia cards for years but since buying & using this card I will be more open to looking at future Radeon series cards when they come out & they will definitely be XFX cards. Newegg is my computing supplier of choice....been getting my money for over a decade & I'm still happy....says it all!

3 out of 5 eggsDoesn't Come with what it says

Pros: This is a all in all good card so far. I have no complaints about the card.

Cons: I am very irritated with the fact that under the specifications tab of this card it states this:

XFX R9-290X-EDBD Video Card
1 x 6-pin to 4-pin power cable
1 x 8-pin to 6-pin power cable
1 x Driver Disk Installation Guide
1 x Game Bundle : BF4 Game Bundle******
1 x Installation DVD
1 x Quick Installation Guide

This card does not come with 1 x Game Bundle : BF4 Game Bundle* as indicated. So honestly i feel kinda ripped off by both newegg and XFX. If it doesnt come with the bundle then you need to take it off your site.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Heath, we apologize for the confusion. The BF4 bundle was changed to the GOld Rewards bundle and never updated in the specs.

We apologize for the confusion.

5 out of 5 eggsHAPPY!!!

Pros: Card works great!!
Upgraded from an XFX R9 270x 2gb card I get much higher frame rates in all my games now.
My modded Skyrim works every time I start it up now.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have a Newer motherboard with AMD chipset 900 or above.

I had a older motherboard that worked great with the R9 270x cards in crossfire.But with the one R9 290x i would get a blue screens after exiting any game on steam or random freezes.

After much research I found out that my motherboard had a older AMD chipset that caused the many blue screens.

After i upgraded to a newer motherboard I haven't had any blue screens since.

4 out of 5 eggsgood gpu but has some hiccups

Pros: Solid gaming gpu for the price. Runs fairly cool with graphics cranked to ultra. Dual fans on 90% and its just a whisper.

Cons: Have had issues with it artifacting and tearing on me while running FFXIV while having it just slightly over clocked. Reinstalled drivers, and turned all settings to factory spec and she runs smoothly. Was hoping to overclock this puppy but i guess the chip I got is a bit touchy.

Thank you for the great review!

2 out of 5 eggsI'll buy Nvidia next time

Pros: Great when it works, plays about everything on extreme settings

Cons: Wont wake from hibernation, sometimes the videocard causes the system to lose video while doing something, had it cause the system to reboot once. I exceeded the 30 days for Newegg RMA because i had the hibernation issue once during that time, but since then it has happened several times. So not only does XFX want me to pay for shipping, but they want me to do without a video card for who knows how long. EVGA didnt do that to me, nor did the one Nvidia company I owned years ago. Thumbs down for this and I think AMD may have lost a customer because of it.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry you are having issues with sleep mode. Typically this is a settings related issue or a motherboard/PSU that doesnt work with new tech that can idle when not in use. If you haven't ran your latest bios updates for your motherboard or have an old PSU, that would be your culprit.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Great card. Can max out all my games with no issue for the most part. VERY QUIET. Simple install and does not get hot at all with stock cooling. (I do have a HUGE cube Corsair case with PSU and HDD/SSD on the other side of a firewall with 3 240mm fans in the processing side of the chassis though, so that helps.

Cons: Went from a GTX760 to this, so it is quite the jump in performance, however, not liking to take the time myself to optimize my settings, it did suck going to the Radeon platform a bit (call me lazy but I really like the GeForce Experience, Raptor just doesn't do it for me) so I had to suck it up a bit and do it all myself. No issue, just takes a bit of time before jumping into a new game.

Funny enough, I had to scale back my graphics on BL2 due to screen tearing. This card and my setup is WAY more than enough to take care of Unreal Engine 3 without issue on ultra. A bit disappointing on this, but hey, it is ALMOST there.

Other Thoughts: Bang for buck, better than going with a GTX. Grabbed this baby for $310 so a good purchase. Couldn't see paying extra for an 8GB card at the moment. Would rather double up this exact card. Best card I have ever had. Will stick with XFX going forward.

Also, this is a LONG card. Make sure your case is set up for it. Just because it says gaming case does not mean that this card will fit.

4 out of 5 eggssoild performance

Pros: Great performance. I'm able to maintain 60 FPS playing most games at 4k with very high (though not necessarily totally maxed) settings. For the price, I'm happy.

Cons: Loud. I upgraded from a 280x, and figured "dual dissipation" meant that it would be quieter than my 280x (which was pretty quiet) because the fans wouldn't have to run full speed as often. Nope. It means double screaming banshees. Consider water cooling. This is easily the loudest video card I've ever owned

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Kick6,

We're sorry you are having a loud fan issue. If you would like, we can send out another set of replacement fans to fix this.

5 out of 5 eggsfree game???

Pros: I have no issues with the card runs great and quiet.

Cons: The con I have is not with the card it is with the noted free game. One of the reasons I went with the card is for the civ game. I might have changed my mind if I knew the hoops that you have to go through to get the FREE game. I do not like giving my cell number out to anyone especially a web site and for this I have to wait 24 HOURS??? So I patiently waited the 24 HOURS and still no confirmation email. So I sent an email to support. guess I will have to wait a week before hearing from them.

Other Thoughts: What happen to the days when a company states free game with purchase the actual CD or DVD was in the box of purchase?

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, We're sorry you had trouble getting your free game bundle. You should receive a promotional 3x5 card from Newegg in the package, go to the link provided, Register an AMD account (quick and free) and enter the code in the promtional link. Once you do that, the email should be sent soon after and you are ready to start downloading.

If you are having any trouble on this step, please let us know.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card! Minus one thing.

Pros: Definitely a great buy, runs everything I throw at it at ultra settings with absolutely no frame drops. I got this card on sale for only around $300 and it was worth it!

Cons: The only con is that it came with no sticker. Not anything bad, but I like to decorate my case.

Other Thoughts: This card runs Far Cry 4 at ultra settings, along with every other game I've played so far. If you want a card that is going to perform well on any current-next gen game, this is it.

Manufacturer Response:

Excellent. Thank you for your positive feedback.
