XFX Black Edition With GPU Edging
The Black Edition Graphics Card Represent Our Highest Achievement in GPUs
XFX's exclusive Black Edition graphics card are the most rigorously tested graphics card. They are pre-overclocked to the maximum core clock achievable and come from the highest quality yield GPUs which make up the top 1% of those produced in the world. In addition, we pair it with the highest quality components to ensure there are no bottle necks so you can be certain you are getting the best graphics card possible on the market today.
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 Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture & 32-Bit Ultrawide Bandwidth
Primed to Enable Astonishing Performance and Breathtaking Image Quality, Making it a Top Choice for Gamers Who Expect the Best
Designed to push not only the boundaries of DirectX® 11 gaming, the GCN Architecture is also AMD's first design specifically engineered for general computing. Representing the cutting edge of AMD's graphics expertise, GCN GPUs are more than capable of handling workloads-and programming languages-traditionally exclusive to the main processor. Coupled with the dramatic rise of GPU-aware programming languages like C++ AMP and OpenCL™, the GCN Architecture is the right architecture at the right time.
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.

AMD Dual Graphics Ready
AMD Discrete Graphics Cards when Paired with AMD APU Based Motherboards Give You an Extra Boost in Graphics Performance
Get the power of two when you purchase an AMD A-Series Accelerated Processor (APU) based PC with an AMD Radeon™ DirectX® 11.2-capable discrete graphics card. Only AMD Radeon™ Dual Graphics combines two powerful Radeon™ DirectX 11.2-enabled graphics processors to provide the ultimate gaming performance boost when you need it.
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.
Bullet Physics Engine Technology
Get the Most Out of Your Gaming Experience with Real 3D Physics
Take advantage of the 3D Physics capabilities of some of today's newest titles which include completely destructable objects, walls and buildings collapsing from gun fire, real particle effects such as fire that react to the environment and realistic details such as moving hair, water and much more.
Compatible with the Newest Direct X Technology
Meets the Standards of the Newest Games with the Latest Direct X Driver Compatibility
