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 RPMs 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).

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 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.

4 out of 5 eggsIn additon to my other review...

Pros: Quiet and it is running fine now.

Cons: Other than the first day getting it installed none.

Other Thoughts: If you have a rift and it is already installed make sure you uninstall the rift's drivers before installing the drivers for this card or you will have a nightmare of an install time. For help with configuring the rift to work with this card look at the AMD forums link in this review as this worked for me maybe it will help someone else...

4 out of 5 eggsXFX pretty good

Pros: The pros are that this thing worked great and looks great right out of the box. It has a pretty high over clock on it, but it does run at a good temperature, and if i had some better case fans i could overclock it more.
p.s. also it says it has a limited lifetime warranty which is awesome. however, i have no clue how good it is or how well they work with people as my product works perfectly.

Cons: the overclock is also somewhat of a con, I could see it as a possible problem for some people who don't have a decent case/fan set up.
when i bought this it was a decent price, but now the gtx 960 is kinda blowing it out of the water. They need to come down in price to keep competitive.

3 out of 5 eggs3GB XFX GFX card

Pros: Nice design.
Two fans should keep it extra cool as I don't plan to OC it.
Quiet.
Quick response time.
Once you get it installed and going it seems to work fine.

Cons: Card gave me issues as soon as I swapped it with my old GFX card(Sapphire HD 5870 Eyefinity 6 edition). After fighting with this card for an hour I managed to get the drivers to install on my computer. Card is now stable, but I can not get it to display to my Oculus rift no matter what I do( HDMI port, DVI port w/adapter. mini display port with active adapter; Tried with 2 monitors and also with just one plugged in along with the rift.). This is a bit of a let down because I really need two if not three monitors as a development platform and the Oculus to test my work. My old card managed this and more I was really expecting more.

Other Thoughts: Looks nice.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for the review, we appreciate your feedback. This sounds like a minor driver conflict, please contact me for a quick tutorial that should fix it.

2 out of 5 eggsgreat card,cool and quiet but.....

Pros: Very quiet card compared to my HD 5850, runs a lot cooler as well. Great graphics...when it works... see below.

Cons: Display driver stops working almost every time I play Diablo 3.
Display driver stops, Diablo 3 stops and then computer BSOD's and restarts. very frustrating since I really like the card. My only option is to RMA, the card simply doesn't work for what I need it for.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks good on paper

Cons: Does not perform out of the box without turning settings down

Other Thoughts: Right out of the box, got on World of Warcraft, cranked up the settings, and immediately the screen started flickering to black and back, the longer I tried to play the worse it got. Upon researching this problem, it appears many other people have the same problem with this card, not only from XFX but from pretty much any manufacturer. Returning it is not an option with Newegg. Best I have come up with is to open Control Catalyst and manually adjust the clock settings down (have it turned down to 800 from 1200 now) and manually turned the fan speeds up from 45% to 65%. I also installed a case fan blowing directly onto the video card. I can play WOW now with only some little anomalies. I have generated a trouble ticket with XFX and am hoping they will take the card back and possibly give me an option to get a different style card. I cannot believe Maximum PC picked this card for best budget card. I would think they would check into this stuff. Disappointed.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Grandmasimulator.

Please send your emails to neweggsupport@xfxforce.com or create a ticket at xfxsupport.com.

It sounds like a simple driver issue that could be resolved by reinstalling and disabling your anti-virus protection during the install.

Thank you

4 out of 5 eggsGood entry-level high end card

Pros: Beautiful card, plenty of ports for monitors, handles games well, scores decently on the 3D Mark Firestrike benchmark test

Cons: Pretty big card, if you don't have a full size tower, I wouldn't recommend purchasing this because it likely won't fit. Not much of a con for me, but someone else may see it as one.

Other Thoughts: Haven't had it long, but it plays all my games well. I hope it continues to work well in the future. It IS a bit loud, but I'm not looking for a silent computer.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Price and performance card

Pros: I finally upgraded my XFX 9800 GTX+ to a modern day card. XFX does not make Nvidia cards, so I took a chance and tried a Radeon card for the 1st time. I chose this one because XFX has always had high quality cards. I ran this card hard for 4 days and it did not even hiccup. All games are running on Ultra and I am quite impressed with this card. Quite a good value for the performance you get.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsGreat performance for your dollar

Pros: The card is a beast and takes everything I throw at it in stride. It's quiet, it's cool, and it looks pretty.

Cons: It arrived DOA.

Other Thoughts: Although it arrived dead, I was able to RMA this very quickly and received my brand new replacement card today. XFX was prompt, professional, and helpful. I will be buying another in the future so that I can run them in Crossfire.
