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 eggsNever buying another AMD/ATI card again

Pros: Looks fancy. Makes a great paperweight.

Cons: Worked for less than an hour. Tried to play a game and my displays went to sleep. Card is no longer detected in windows or linux. I reinstalled my old Nvidia card and it worked fine. There are no refunds on this item so now I wait for an RMA replacement. A few years ago I bought an ATI card and it was defective too. I took it back to the store and got an Nvidia card. I've had no problems since. I thought it was just a fluke, so this time I took a chance on the ati card since it was cheaper than the nvidia counterpart.

Other Thoughts: Fool me once, shame on...shame on you. Fool me... you can't get fooled again.

Manufacturer Response:

1 out of 5 eggsCrashes Often

Pros: Card is fast, not really too loud under normal operation.

Cons: The card crashes often. I have reformatted my system and installed most up to date drivers (which are 5 months old.)
Beta Drivers same issue. I fear the problem is hardware related so the lifetime warranty is mostly useless as I have had the card for little more than a month.

Other Thoughts: Not sure how the lifetime warranty will work if the issue turns out to be hardware.

Waiting to RMA until new drivers come out, since the current ones are fairly old for tech standards.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry you had troubles with your card.

4 out of 5 eggsSweet Card (BUT)

Pros: Graphics are very nice!!! The card really pumps, great performance, One of my cards runs smooth with little noise but:

Cons: I bought two of these cards, The first card is running perfect with very little noise. The second card gets this really weird ticking/shocking sound only when a game gets started and the card really has to perform. The first card doesn't do this, The second card in crossfire does.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent... but

Pros: excellent card for gamer.
Great graphic performence.
I recommend it.

Cons: But...
When one of the fan reach 47% of it s max speed, which is very low for a gaming card, a noise is starting. Very annoying.

Other Thoughts: i still like it.
i still recommend it as i said.
so i will keep it and just put a water cooling on it.
it s just a bad luck.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice card!

Pros: Very quiet compared to the reference model
Much cooler then the reference model
xfx has great customer support
destroys games on 1080p (getting my 1440p monitor today)
Very sleek design on the card

Cons: I dont really have any huge cons on this card except that it can get hot, and consume a lot of power. Im fine with that though, i can handle the heat and power. There is one flaw in the design for me, which is the xfx LED being face down in my h440 case. I would have liked to see it rather than it be face down. Other than that, no complaints here!

Other Thoughts: The first r9 290 card i got was a reference model from xfx. It died, but fortunately xfx support was there to help me! i contacted them and they said i had to ship my dead card to my expense to them, and then they sent me a card back. They gave me the aftermarket cooler black edition! When i opened the box i was so excited to get right into it! Thanks for being awesome xfx!

5 out of 5 eggsThis card is great

Pros: On air fans at 80% 1100 core 1400 on the memory 70c is the highest temp i have seen after 4 hours of gaming. I am going to do stress tests and update the review but so far on air alone this thing is a monster.

Cons: None yet will update after more use and testing

Other Thoughts: More testing to be done I will be back.

5 out of 5 eggsBang for the buck?

Pros: Quiet and sleek custom HSFA(Heat-Sink and Fan Assembly). Wish waterblocks looked this good.
Full RPM is ~25dBa in an open-air chassis. I have radiator fans louder than that at full RPM. I can hear it, but it's the quietest noise producing thing in my system.
Like the R9-290X version, the XFX logo lights up bright pure white. It's also stainable acrylic, so if you use some colored marker, you can get whatever color you want. Be very careful with such a mod though. Not only will it likely void your warranty, but you'll go nuts if you apply too much. I do wish it was RGB LED backlit with an optional USB internal header to change the color in software.
Performance is grand. As long as I don't crank the AA to absurdly unnecessary levels like reviewers do, I can get 60+ fps in any game tested thus far. That's just without high AA; everything else maxed out at 1920x1200 which is 10% more demanding that 1080p. Albeit this is at my OC settings of 1100/5500. The highest I've achieved stable on the XFX HSFA is 1165/6000. I'ld link to my Firestrike benchmark, but that's not allowed. So take my word for it when I say I got 11411 graphics score with this card at those settings. I still get higher than a stock Titan at 1100/5500 though, so I'm quite pleased. Some few games in beta like Lichdom will have occasional artifacting at anything higher than those settings, hence why I keep it knocked down. OH! Almost forgot, the peak temperature DELTA is 60 Celsius. So if my ambient is 20C, it's 80C, and that's while running OCCT's furmark. I don't see more than 55C delta in games of any kind. Looking forward to seeing what it can do on water.

Cons: My only, and I mean ONLY gripe is with those two screws on the IO bracket.
They are pan-head. Which can conflict with some cases like mine. Fortunately, I yanked the countersunk screws that should've been used from my former card, and applied them in place of the pan-heads.
Here's how you can tell if they will conflict:
If the IO bracket mounting holes in the PC chassis have metal directly above or below all the way to the surface of the slot, check that it's not more than 1mm thick. Even then, you may have to remove the screws to slot it in, then put the screws back in after.

Other Thoughts: Reference model uses counter-sunk screws. All other brands I've checked use counter-sunk screws. Why at least this card comes with pan-head screws instead of reference/standard counter-sunk, is pretty much a complete mystery. However, that's just the admitted picky side of me. I won't let my subjective opinion influence my rating.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for the great review, we truly appreciate it.

5 out of 5 eggsFast, Good Looking, and Runs Hot.

Pros: -Runs everything flawlessly.

Cons: -It's going to run hot, especially if you try to stuff this in a Corsair 250D.

Other Thoughts: I believe EK makes waterblocks for this but in my system right now, it's running VERY hot with all the case panels on. You'll have to pay careful attention to case airflow and temperatures when dealing with this card.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello and Thank you for the great review. We hope your card serves you well into the future.

How hot is running hot? is it under 85'C?
