4 out of 5 eggsRuns Great So Far!

Pros: Games run great at 1440p with High to Max settings on my PB278Q that's overclocked to 85hz. Runs very cool and very quiet because of closed loop radiator. Idles at 37C and usually maxes out at 58C. I am looking forward to adding a 290x when I move to 2160p.

Cons: As usual with AMD, drivers aren't always ready for the hardware. Some games do not play nice with the Dual GPU. Downclocks when at 75C (I have to intentionally push the card to get that warm). The card is very long so I had to take a grinder to one of my harddrive cages on my antec 900 to make room for it.

Other Thoughts: I recently was notified by Catalyst that a new 14.9 driver was available and due to some glitches and game crashes in Star Citizen I thought I'd not only update drivers, but use the 14.9 beta 2 drivers. These drivers were causing artifacts, Windows Explorer was all distorted. I uninstalled all the drivers and deleted my AMD folder and reinstalled the latest 14.9 stable release and it's been working wonderful. I thought it was weird as there's another buyer that had the exact opposite experience.

5 out of 5 eggsFixed the Bugs Others Experienced, Gread Card

Pros: Amazingly powerful. Have 2 for quad crossfire running a 4k gaming rig and they're the best you can buy. The only card (besides Titans) capable of running 4k at max settings in most games. You get the power you pay for.

Got 1 for $899 here, over $100 cheaper than most other brands at the time.

Cons: Power consumption (but that's to be expected). I'm drawing 1426W at the wall with a quad-crossfire setup at the moment.

The single biggest actual con IMO is that XFX voids your warranty for putting a 3-rd party waterblock on these! If you're looking at putting these inside you're water loops, you may want to look at another manufacturer.

Despite what other reviewers have said about bluescreen / blackscreen infinite loop, and flickering errors, there ARE NOT XFX RELATED. The manufacturer response is 100% accurate when they say it's not due to a bad batch of cards. These issues are caused by several versions of the AMD DRIVERS.

I too experienced them at first. First was the BSODS (usually 0x000000EA error) and then came the black-screen infinite loops upon loading certain programs or applications.

Eventually I fixed the problem, but it was rather time consuming. The solution for my system was gradually changing the driver version. I started at the latest stable release (14.9), then moved on to the beta versions (14.9.1 beta and 14.9.2 beta).

14.9.2beta was the version that finally solved the issues for me.

Other Thoughts: Troubleshooting is to be expected when you buy the "latest and greatest." If you are the type that is easily overwhelmed by hardware and software troubleshooting, this may not be the card for you -- at least until AMD comes out with a few more stable driver releases which eliminate all the issues.

Once you get these beasts working right though, the performance is well worth it.

5 out of 5 eggsXFX 295x2 & XFX 290x (Trifire) Review

Pros: Great design, build, and cooling.

AND VERY FAST....

Cons: Amount of heat it gives off out of the case. Power requirements.

Other Thoughts: This combo is not for the faint of heart. I purchased these cards three months ago. They are paired with an Intel i7-4770K CPU and a Corsair AX1500 PSU. They are also driving a Dell 32" 4K monitor. My performance in BF4 tripled in Mantle and DX11. I also do a lot of graphic design and video rendering. These cards run great in Adobe CS6 and Cloud.

I would suggest a minimum of a 1300W PSU unit.

Manufacturer Response:

Excellent!

1 out of 5 eggsSame problem as others

Pros: Some games work ok.

Cons: Having same problems as other reviewers with now the 2nd replacement card I received. Flickering, Blue screen, and Vsync problems. I can not complete a 3Dmark Fire Strike benchmark without a blue screen. Some games will work fine like Crysis but playing skyrim is completely unplayable because of flickering.

Other Thoughts: Have had many other XFX cards which worked perfectly fine I believe there is a bad batch of XFX 295x2 cards out there. Hoping this will help XFX fix the problem with the bad cards out there.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Konrad,

We're sorry you are having issues with your 295X2.. Currently, there are no known bad batches of 295X2's, typically this is a driver issue, software engine compatibility issue, or RAM related.

Please contact us at neweggsupport@xfxforce.com and we will help you get this sorted out quickly. Thank you!

5 out of 5 eggsR9 295x2

Pros: Incredible speed, runs quiet, looks beautiful in the PC

Cons: Very large card. Measure your case to make sure everything fits. Power hungry beast : I am using a 1000watt PSU to make sure everything has enough juice. One more fact : this card is not exactly cheap ;) But you pay for what you get. Quality.

Other Thoughts: Very impressed. Great stock liquid cooling solution. Runs incredibly well. AMD has done their homework. Combined with Win 8.1 and i7 4790k, along with some solid state drives, this will rock any game you want at serious speed. Make sure that your drivers are updated and you will be pleased. Every game I have runs amazing. Crysis 3, The Vanishing of Ethan Carter, Alien Isolation, this card eats these games like a dream. Cheers. Thanks Newegg!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: this thing is a beast. running 1440p at max setting doesnt phase it. I will be getting a 4k tv soon, cant wait to test it on that

Cons: Some issues with recognizing my displayport adaptor. going to try dvi dual link, hoping it will resolve the problem.
thing runs hot when gaming, should be great for winter but in the summer i need to use my vornado fan to blow some cooler air into my room.

Other Thoughts: apparently a lot of people have had issues with this card, I havent yet and hope I dont.

1 out of 5 eggsIssue resolved, kind of

Pros: None

Cons: Flickering was resolved by disabling V sync in games. This problem was replaced by the dreaded blue screen of death when opening a game. I solved the driver issue by uninstalling all drivers, rebooting and using the XFX driver disk that came with the card.

Other Thoughts: According to XFX I'm the only person to suffer this problem with a replacement card and their suggestion is to start replacing my other hardware. The only thing I'm going to replace is this lame video card. What a waste of $1100.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry you are having issues with your card. Have you tried testing it with a different PSU?

Please contact us for further support or if you have any questions, Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsDeja vu

Pros: Still beautiful,quiet card.

Cons: RMA'd first card to Newegg. Just received replacement. The stuttering/flickering issue with games is still present. Uninstalled and re-installed Catylyst RC14.7, then 14.4WHQL. Drivers load but Control Center will not start. Tried switching to displayport from dvi since this card does not support the Dual link DVI-D that my 30" Dell requires,but as noted in a previous review XFX does not include a mini displayport cable or adapter and all I've got is full size displayport cables.

Other Thoughts: I give up! What started out as an exciting new build with a Rampage V extreme, 5960X, 32Gigs of GSkill DDR4 3000 ram and an R9 295x2 has turned into a nightmare. If I RMA again I'll get another XFX defective card that won't work. In response to XFX, I have never attempted to overclock this card. Why would I when it won't even run at stock! Last AMD and XFX product I'll ever buy. Hurry up with the dual GPU Maxwell Nvidia!

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry your stuttering issue is still present in the 2nd card. Considering you have the only flickering issue i'm aware of, twice, perhaps its time to consider testing a different GPU, cable, adapter, etc. Any other hardware to start ruling out what it would be.

If i had to guess, i would start at the PSU, then the Cables/adapters.

We are happy to help you. Please email us or create a ticket at xfxsupport.com

Thank you

1 out of 5 eggsEXTREMELY BAD

Pros: No idea... it doesn't work for me, and apparently a lot of other people

Cons: Blue screens in most games, it seems to be some kind of driver issue... won't even run 3dmark without a blue screen

Other Thoughts: Don't waste your time or money, this is nonrefundable... I'm begging newegg to exchange it for Nvidia cards right now...

Manufacturer Response:

Hey Sam, we're sorry you are having crashes under load.

Please contact us at neweggsuppot@xfxforce.com so we may help you get this sorted.
