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).

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 eggsGreat Bang for you Buck

Pros: Upgrade from 650ti Boost. Plays anything I throw at it. Alien: Isolation plays flawless. All 3 Crysis games like butter. BF 3&4 smooth as 40 year old scotch. Evolve, fps flows like wine. all games play full 1080p. Great card for the price. Even for a budget card or first time build. Oh, did I mention its quiet too.

Cons: Big, barely fit my case, like perfect fit. Needs a Full Tower. Not recommended for Mids. After install it kept under scanning the desktop and games. Amd beta drivers fixed the issue.

5 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: -Cool
-Quiet
-Easy to OC
-Looks cool

Cons: -Very big

Other Thoughts: All in all it's a pretty good card. I scored it on sale for $249.99 and it came with a $30 mail-in rebate, AMD Never Settle Space Edition(Gold/3game), and the XFX Mousepad which made it a pretty awesome deal. Lifetime warranty on top of that. Runs much cooler and quieter than my flashed and overclocked XFX 6950.

5 out of 5 eggsFast but requires unique power connections

Pros: Paired this monster video card with the GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD5 MOBO, AMD 9590 and 16GB (8x2) 1866 Crucial Ballistix Elite; it works great.

Cons: None yet.

Other Thoughts: Be aware that this video card requires both the 6 pin PCIe and 8 pin (6+2) PCIe power cables so make sure your power supply supports this.

1 out of 5 eggsThey Ride together they die together

Pros: * Powerful cards
* Awesome in crossfire (when working)
* Runs cool with the power

Cons: * Died after a month of use
* No clear instructions on the best drivers to use

Other Thoughts: I purchased two of these cards and setup was a bit of a pain. The default drivers in the CD did not give the desired results in Crossfire. Titanfall had artifacts which my single GTX 480 did not have.

Pulled the drivers from the official XFX site and it functioned perfectly.

After a month of bliss the cards both kicked the bucket. Replaced the motherboard just in case, same thing. Received the general hardware error from mobo with VGA LED light on and no display, not ever at bios. Tried with each card in every slot, still no picture. Replaced it with my old GTX 480 (ol toasty) and everything works.

Hopefully the RMA through the company won't take too long and I'll change my review if it lives beyond a month lol

Manufacturer Response:

3 out of 5 eggsRebate

Pros: Great card, works good and is nice and cool.

Cons: Good luck going through the run around and spending a bunch of money on stamp for all the times they deny your rebate,
Lose two eggs for being frustrating.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card, HUGE

Pros: Card runs great, not too hot, beware of the size.

Cons: As is stated here, this card is HUGE, make sure you have a FULL size case, I have 4 PCs in my house and this would only fit in one of them, and only just barely.

Other Thoughts: I had an XFX 7950 go bad after 11 months, coincidentally I also had 2 other unrelated hardware failures I decided to take care of at the same time. I must say that XFX RMA went WAY better in almost every aspect than my WD drive RMAs, faster, free upgrade to this R9, better communication, less stringent requirements on RMA packaging. That said, there was one aspect that wasn't so good- The computer I bought the 7950 for would in no way fit this beast of a card, so I ended up having to put it in another machine and am contemplating swapping my drives and moving the mcahines so I can have this card at my desk instead of my HTPC. XFX: keep this in mind when someone RMAs a product please.

That said, the new card is otherwise great, and I was shocked how badly XFX beat WD in pretty much every aspect of the RMA process.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card for my first build!

Pros: Awesome card for the price and performance! Got this through a bundle and am very happy with it. 60+ FPS on everything I have tried. Drivers are easy to use. The included mousepad is also very nice.

Cons: My only complaint is that only one screw would fit in the mounting portion of the case. The attachments at the output sides could be a little more wide, put perhaps it is just my case.

Other Thoughts: Used this in my first build which I got through this combo:

5 out of 5 eggsThis card ROCKS!

Pros: Lots of streams. HIGH frame rate. Runs Crysis, SMITE, TF2, GA, Battlefield 4 and more on highest settings without a problem. Have not had any problems. Got AMD CPU and MB so it would run PCI 3.0. I have not OC'd it but might do so in future.
I would buy this card again without a thought.

Cons: It is a little long, so you might have to modify your case to make it fit. I knew in advance it was a problem and did a little metal work to make it fit. Measure and make sure your case will handle its length.
