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 eggsCustomer Service Sucks

Pros: Pretty good when it's working. pretty quiet

Cons: Customer service. Tech Support. After 2 emails, I'm pretty sure i know more than the guy, that's why he didn't even bother emailing back, since he couldn't find it in the "xfx r9 290 customer service for dummies" Updated bios and instead of just uninstall from device manager, I had to use the display driver uninstaller, which they have never suggested it. Because the guy is r3-tarded. Then DO NOT install the driver withe express option because that'll f#-ck everything up. OH wait, I found that out myself also. Install the driver only, because all the other extra software will cause black screen if they're all installed at the same time. So after you install the driver ONLY. Then if you want install the optional software. Thanks xfx support. OH WAIT, you guys decided not to answer my emails after 2 replies. So. . .i did YOUR job xfx. Now they're probably going to comment on this review apologizing about this incident just for the "good talk" so other people will buy their products.

Other Thoughts: Why even have Customer service/support if I'm the one having to solve the problem????? Yea, try to think of an excuse to reply to this review, you guys don't have anything. Instead of fapping on the job, how about do something useful. Like . . ehhh actually do your support?? maybe??

5 out of 5 eggsWorks wonderfully

Pros: Works flawlessly. Fast as you could possibly need, I'm running a 28 inch 1440p monitor and this card handles any title i throw at it. It's freakin amazing. Regular driver updates have really made a big impact. Mantle.

Cons: Can be loud if you overclock. A bit of a power hog.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quiet, temperature never went above 32 degrees C, looks cool in the case, ran at 4k resolution on my desktop very smoothly.

Cons: Died after about 15 minutes of use. I ran the Windows Experience Index, the fan speed progressively became faster until the screen went black and my PC shut down a few seconds later. Restarted my computer, same thing happened only this time with absolutely no programs running as this is a new PC, and now the card won't display anything during the POST from any of the ports.

Other Thoughts: I'm in the RMA process for this card. If my replacement card doesn't immediately die like this one did, it would be a good product based on other reviews worthy of 4 or 5 eggs, but since it didn't work for even a single hour, I can't give it anything but the lowest score.
My computer's power supply more than meets the needs, as it's an 850 watt Corsair that's less than a week old. I built this computer with digital art in mind and the integrated graphics are unsuitable for that at high resolution. I'm quite disappointed, I expect an expensive graphics card to be of superior quality with the highest level of testing required before it's sent to the consumer. It could have been bad luck, but given that I wasn't able to do anything with it from the moment I got it has left a sour taste in my mouth.

1 out of 5 eggsNever Buy XFX Again

Pros: Good video card overall.

Cons: XFX did not honor rebate submission even when emailed directly with all necessary information. Kept getting run-around. Will NEVER buy XFX again.

Other Thoughts: If you are buying and expect a rebate, do not buy XFX products, you will get attached to another object by an inclined plane, wrapped helically around an axis.

Newegg rocks, but they cannot assist with this issue.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: 1. Worked right out of the box.
2. Dead silent.
3. Does not throw pocket sand.
4. Runs cool.
5. Absolutely stunning looks.
In all seriousness, this cars is amazing. I was worried I was going to get a dead card, black screen, etc. From all the reviews of any R9 card. But right out of the box, this card works as intended and looks like a boss doing it.

Cons: Literally it was bent. The end of the card near the power input, the card is bent. It does not hinder the card in anyway but I can't unsee it.
I have a Corsair 760t, so I can see it all the time through the massive window. At some point, someone packaging it at XFX, just smashed it. I don't know what happened, but its bent. It's killing me.

Other Thoughts: Back plate for the card. Anything, even a thin black sheet. That would of made this card look flawless.

Other than the BENT part in the card. I would of given the card 5 eggs, but that bend... I can not unsee it. It's just there, bent.
It is not going to stop me from buying another one next week. It is an amazing card.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for the great review, we appreciate the positive feedback.

If the bend drives you crazy enough, please send a picture and ill see if an entire shroud can be send out to rectify this bizarre augmentation.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic Purchase

Pros: It runs cool and quiet. I was skeptical from all the negative reviews that people were making, but when I got the card and put it in my system for the first time, it was a match made in heaven. It runs any game I want maxed out at 1080p, it runs cool at ~55°C, and I can't hear it over my H100i's fans. This is a beast of a card, I am planning on getting a second one once I bump up my resolution.

Cons: It's really big and draws a lot of power. Not much else

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

1 out of 5 eggsNot sure what to say just fustrated

Pros: Nice card when/if it works.

Cons: Second one just went dead black screen, switched over to onboard video comes up fine. System doesn't even recognize the card anymore in bios or in windows. Same thing happened with the first one, was sent a new one this one lasted just about a week. Put in old GTX 8800 works fine.

Other Thoughts: Not knocking Newegg or XFXs as I know they could have some sort of production issues with this run. At this point I know my only option is a replacement but I am fed up as this entire RMA process is going top take another two weeks. So to sum it up bought first card in late Nov had it about a month it die waited two week got the new one and it lasted a week.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry you are having persistant issues with your 290's. Obvioulsy this is highly-irregular and probably not a coincidence. I want to help diagnose what might be the cause, however i believe the Power supply could be apart of it.

1 out of 5 eggsHangs windows

Pros: HDMI, DVI outputs

Cons: Cards only worked correctly for about a week then windows would hang after 10 minutes of use. Tried card on multiple systems, tried with Windows 7, 8.1 and even 2012. Took too much time trouble shooting that I went past return deadline. XFX Tech support is a joke, no help at all. Now I am stuck with a pretty $300 case light.

Other Thoughts: Used to love XFX now I will be staying as far awya as possible.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry you are having issues with your card. We carry a 2 year warranty, as well as a lifetime warranty (some models may vary) on our R series products.

If you are still having issues with your 290, please contact us at neweggsupport@xfxforce.com so we can expedite your RMA and get this taken care of.

1 out of 5 eggsSad face

Pros: It was pretty and ran very well for an hour and half.

Cons: Well I decided to upgrade seeing I was still using my XFX 5830 and newer games were reacquiring beefier Graphic cards. I had to order a new power supply cause I did not check the one in my pc first to see if it was strong enough. Got a Corsair 800w power supply and install the graphics card got everything booted up and play WoW for around hour and half. Exit game start up Wolfenstein: new order. Splash screens came up but did not look right like they was very blocky and such then the screen went black and the card would not come back to life after rebooting several times. Had to put my old card back in to do a RMA back to New Egg. Hope the second one they send me works.

Other Thoughts: I really was looking forward to using this card seeing I used all my Christmas money to buy it. That is why I haven't upgraded in 4 years.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello, we are sorry you are having issues with your card.

We would be happy to help you address this issue, please contact us at neweggsupport@xfxforce.com.
