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.

5 out of 5 eggsDroolworthy card.

Pros: -This is probably the sleekest looking card I have ever had the pleasure of installing. Super clean, chrome, rounded edges and LED XFX logo on the front of the card. For only a mid range card, I am jealous.
- Overclocked really well for me and still ran quite quiet.

Cons: -Super long for a 280. It's as long as many 290's. Definitely check that it will fit your case :)
- The LED is amazing looking, but on the bottom of the card where it won't be seen on a lot of setups.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for the great review! We are happy you are pleased. This model shouldn't have an LED, but its possible if the cooler was upgraded internally.

5 out of 5 eggsFor the price, I couldn't have done better

Pros: The rebate actually came! I've been burned so often in the past, I couldn't believe it! Thank you!

This card actually has the lifetime warranty.

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: Had to choose between this and the newer r9 380s... the 4gb versions would have taken me over budget, but the warranty and the extra memory for GTA V had me picking this card, the fact that the $20 rebate actually happened turned this into a stellar deal.

Manufacturer Response:

Thank you for the great review! We are happy you are pleased.

5 out of 5 eggsLoving this card thus far!

Pros: -Keeps nice and cool even under load
-Much more quiet than my last GPU
-Has every type of monitor connection that i need
-Easily overclockable
-Runs my games fast and smooth
-Looks sweet

Cons: -After having this card in my PC for a few months now, I noticed the unsupported side is sagging a bit. It is a rather long card so perhaps this is to be expected.
-This card begins having trouble in some of the newest games while running at 2k resolution.

Other Thoughts: -Considering the price of this card, I would buy it again, and in fact may in the future to run them in crossfire.

2 out of 5 eggsIt went bad.

Pros: When I first got it, it was amazing! everything ran fine and all my games looks way better than before.

Cons: After 5 months, it started to crash my computer. It would start to flicker on and off. my brother and I tried to find a solution online, but it wasn't going so well. The last thing that we tried was putting my graphics card into his computer to see if it was the card that was causing the trouble and it was. It kinda sucks that I spent so much money on the card to have it messing up in a couple months. I didn't get to game that much with the new card either.

Other Thoughts: I don't know If I would buy it again. I mean it runs great and all, but reading that it breaks down on other people too makes u wonder...

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

This card should still be covered by atleast the 24 month warranty, if not the LIFETIME warranty. please let us know.

2 out of 5 eggsGood... but misleading.

Pros: Works well in 2 way crossfire.... temps are decent
Setup was a breeze
fans are quiet

Cons: Mainly got these because XFX claimed they had "unlocked voltage" This is a lie so beware. Nothing seems to work to modify voltage.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry you are having issues. If you are still having trouble, please let us know so we can offer support.

4 out of 5 eggsPurchased three in the last 1.5 years. All are still strong

Pros: Bang for the buck. These cards have provided a great platform to excel productivity and also waste time. Eyefinity is a blast. The drivers are solid. Quiet card.

Cons: Wish they had that 4th gig of ram. One arrived a little bent. Also when I purchased the cards they came with a free game off.... "3 free games" and what not... I did not receive the promotion on all three cards although it was offered. keep in mind each card was purchased months apart.

Other Thoughts: As of today's date... A great card to get into PC gaming on a budget. The cards have some tricks up their sleeves. With the release of the new drivers new functions like double resolution really delivered a "new video card" feel after owning the cards for over a year.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsWorks better than my 7870

Pros: Good overclocking. 100% stable at 1115ghz core and 1350 ghz memory.
Free upgrade from my 7870.

Cons: None that i have seen.

Other Thoughts: I got this when one of my 7870 died. Even though one card died and the other worked, they then sent me two of these R9 280 cards which gave me 3GB when the RMAed 7870 cards were only 2GB. I had a little trouble with the RMA process which is why i think they bumped me up to 3GB. Overall I am happy I got the cards with the lifetime warranty from XFX.

5 out of 5 eggsXFX RADEON VIDEO CARD

Pros: very vivid Graphics and super colors

Cons: Uses a lot of power, 750 Watt power supply is a little small. I used a 1000 watt modular power supply and everything is fine now.

Other Thoughts: With a 384 bit graphic card and one of the best companies to buy from, this card is extra special for gaming.
