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 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.

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.

3 out of 5 eggsCould have been great

Pros: Has great value for the price. The improvement since my last card is amazing, and the card is much quieter and cooler too.

Cons: The HDMI port is NOT HDCP compatible! I did some research and this is a problem with both the XFX 280 and the XFX 280X lines.
How this got past QA is beyond me.

Other Thoughts: I was very happy with this card until I ran into the HDCP problem. The only solution is to use an adapter and one of the other ports on the card. Even the DVI port is HDCP compatible, but the one that set the standard, HDMI, is not.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry you are having issues with your GPU. The mini DP should support HDCP, we can send an adapter or replace the entire unit.

Please contact us at neweggsupport@xfxforce.com for support and help resolving this issue.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent card w/ a well-designed and effective cooler

Pros: Provides a lot of graphics firepower in an elegant, and relatively quiet package.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This will definitely satisfy anyone looking for an R9-280.

The mail-in rebate process is exactly as annoying as you'd expect it to be.

Hello, Thank you for the great review, we appreciate it!

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome Card, Great Price

Pros: Card worked perfectly out of the box, 3GB GDDR5 fast, Styling is amazing and went perfectly with my themed build, red and black.

Cons: LARGE, very LARGE. 8 and 6 pin power plugs could me mounted facing front of case instead of towards the side panel. AMD needs to make a better tuning software. Nvidia has a much easier overclocking utility.

Other Thoughts: If your case is large enough and you have a power supply to handle this beast, GET THIS CARD.

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

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent value.

Pros: Like others I got this for 199 plus games and Ive been nothing but pleased with it. I had an XFX 5870 before and this shames it. Looks sick and does fit in my mid-tower with modular cables. Recently upgraded my X4 965 to an 4350 at 4.6ghz and it along with this card make near ultra on BF4 possible. Oh yeah, AND I GOT THE REBATE QUICK AND PAINLESS. The card it came on is kinda cool too =P

Cons: I cant really think of any. 3gb RAM is the sweet spot, raw power seems good. Connections are solid and build seems great..... cant think of any.

Other Thoughts: I have this as the backbone of a budget build. This card, FX-4350 at 4.6, Crucial Ballistix Sport 8gb, Biostar TA-970 mobo, Asus Xonar DG, TP-LINK Dual Band wifi, 650w Bronze PSU, Crucial M-500 256gb and WD 1tb HDD in a Thermaltake mid tower. Lots of exhaust fans and 1 front panel intake. Im happy with the system. It looks nice with modular cables and controllable blue leds. Id recommend the card without hesitation.

5 out of 5 eggsthis card.

Pros: This card is AMAZING! The price is just... WOW! 200 off because of the mouse pad and amd games with a 30 dollar MIR! Basically they pay YOU to take this beast

Cons: card is a tad long, a long mid tower or a average full tower should fit nicely.

5 out of 5 eggsSkeptical of the 280a

Pros: I wasn't sure about the 280a as it is nearly identical to the 280x. It is running everything current on Ultra without issue. Star Citizen, Planetside 2 and everything else look great!

Cons: The board is long, do some measuring before buying. Verify that you have a 750PSU or higher, it will not run with a lower psu. The 280x does not have this limitation.

5 out of 5 eggsLove this card!!!

Pros: Inexpensive, quiet and powerful. I've thrown every game so far at it in Ultra settings, and haven't had a problem. I was using a GTX 660, and this is much more quiet and quite a bit more powerful. I'm loving this card. Came with codes for three games and a rebate, can't beat that at all for $229.00!
You will want to measure your case, as its quite a long card.

Cons: None

Manufacturer Response:

Excellent. We are happy everything is working as expected.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This runs great for me, I've had no issues with it thus far
-My games run ultra @1080p
-The fans are not noticeable under load
-not much else to really say, better to just get one for yourself and see the power of this bad boy.

Cons: it's a monster of a card, so pick your case wisely, even in my HAF Stacker case this thing takes up a huge amount of space.


it's also non-reference PCB so you're going to have a really hard time getting a full cover waterblock, including finding a reputable company to custom make one or do it yourself.

I've seen people suggest 7970 blocks that where made for the XFX 7970, but I can't find anything to know how different this is from the 7970 to spend money on one and it be useless.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Pat and thank you for the great review.

The 280a-tdfd is an XFX design, however some companies have blocks that should fit. Please contac them before purchasing to be sure.

Thank you

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Upgrade

Pros: -Good upgrade from a 5870 (125% on benchmark)
-Good looking
-Fits well in a Full ATX case
-Cooling solution keeps it cool, even w/Overclock
-Price/Performance is outstanding
-Came with "Free Games"
-Lots of display out options (HDMI, mini-display port, etc)
-Plays new games at near best graphics w/great FPS

Cons: -If I returned this card I'd only get $99 back because of the "free games"

Other Thoughts: -This card is not going into a Mid Atx tower it's as long as my forearm and about as heavy
-Consumes a lot of power but not disproportionate to the size, 550w+ PS recommended
-Good price vs. performance option, especially considering $300+ for a 280x, this card does just fine
