5 out of 5 eggsVery Good, driver trouble Win 8, 8.1

Pros: Extremely fast, great frame rates. over 11,000 on 3dmark. Plays all my games on ultra with no problems.

Cons: The only trouble is that on win 8 the omega drivers do not work, at least not without dropping the actual driver back to an older driver and still using the omega catalyst suite.

Win 8.1 gave incredibly bad direct x issues across all games and video players, not really the cards fault, but 8.1 had no trouble with the omega drivers.

Would be nice if the omega drivers worked on 8.

Other Thoughts: As per usual any time you make a hardware upgrade, always update your bios, and all hardware drivers, as well as windows updates.

This will make things go very smoothly.

I have noticed that a few reviews mentioned that when they installed the new card the computer would not boot bast post, or would restart constantly. If you are getting no beeps on post you need to update your bios.

If your bios does not recognize the card then you will have boot problems.

If you do get beeps on post, you probably do not have to available 50amps from your power supply that this card requires.

If you aren't sure about your power supply amperage it will normally say on the supply itself. You want to check the amps on the 12v rail. find the amperage draw for you motherboard, memory , processor and any other peripherals you have installed.

Take those numbers add them up with the 50 amps for the card. If your power supply amps are higher you should be fine.

However, if your amps are very close you may have trouble. If you PSU is older or not high end you could have lost a bit of juice. Keep that in mind.

Other than that you should have no problems.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome card

Pros: Great card. A much needed improvement over the old HD7990. This card absolutely slays any game at 1080p and 1440p resolutions and performs admirably at 4k. Why buy a 980 when you can get this for the same price?

Cons: The first one I bought arrived DOA but after going to XFX the issue was resolved and I received a new one within a week. The fan on mine is quite loud. This might be an issue with just mine though.

5 out of 5 eggspowerhouse graphics beast!

Pros: Love this card. Especially @ the price I bought it for. A few bucks more than the 980 and so much more performance. I was worried about the power requirements because the reviewers were making such a big deal about it. But I had 1000 watts, more than enough. @ 1080 you'll max out anything

Cons: None

3 out of 5 eggsAmazing benches, bad compatibility

Pros: Pros:
Less than half original retail price from newegg.
2x R9 290X on a single board, with a watercooling AIO solution already installed.
Fairly low operating temps, and much lower than reference R9 290xs.
Amazing benches.

Cons: AMD Drivers
AMD Drivers.
Did I mention AMD drivers?
Also the 500w TDP may be too much for some power supplies.

Other Thoughts: My system:
EVGA SR-2
2x Intel Xeon X5650
Corsair AX1200 1200w PSU
24GB Corsair XMS3 1333mhz RAM
XFX R9 295X2/2x GTX 670 4GB

Unfortunately, it was not even a semblance of thought in my mind that the card would not be compatible with my motherboard, after the obligatory check that I would not lose performance over a PCI-E 2.0 x16 slot.

It appears I was wrong - the NF200 PCI-E bridge chip on my EVGA SR-2 and many older X58 motherboards has compatibility isues with the R9 series of cards. Older AMD cards have no issues with them, however, indeed there are quite a few EVGA forum members with 4 way crossfire 6000 series and 7000 series as well, which clearly, to me, makes this an AMD issue, and they have not responded to any cries for help from any X58 owner in any medium I have come across thus far.

My symptoms do not entirely match those who complain of NF200 issues - I have had no BSODs with the R9 295x2, but the AMD drivers simply will not cooperate, even on a FRESH Windows 7 installation, and I have no reason to believe the card is defective as both GPUs show up in the device manager, although I have not gamed yet (obviously can't without the drivers working correctly)

Hopefully AMD fixes the issue with a driver update, but it is unlikely for us old X58 platform users, we're relegated to the dumpster it seems...

I can't return it for a GTX 980 which would have had no problems, due to Newegg's no refund policy. Make sure your stuff is compatible down to the tiniest seemingly-insignifficant motherboard chips.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry you are having issues with your card. It sounds like a power draw issue. For warranty options, please visit xfxsupport.com or contact me. Also, are you in touch with AMD about this? We have plenty of X58 boards in our test center we use to test 295x2's that work great. Perhaps you have a 3rd party software interfereing?

5 out of 5 eggsR9 295x2

Pros: Fast, makes every game look amazing!

Cons: Not sure if its worth the money using it on AMD PCIe16 2.0 slot. Because this thing has two GPUs the 5GB bandwidth is reduced to 2.5 GIG for each GPU. Would be better to use 2 R9 290x in crossfire so your 2 GPUs have 5GB bandwidth each!!!

Other Thoughts: Despite the Cons of the PCIe16 2.0 Bus this thing still makes everything look amazing and gets pretty good benchmarks on firestrike......11710

4 out of 5 eggslove hate

Pros: its pretty and well made

newegg rma department

Cons: it's high cost and requires the right psu

drivers are not co-operating with y system

Other Thoughts: i really wanted this card to work right this is my third card
i bought a psu specifically for this card
modded my case
fought with drivers for at least 40 hours

my previous 5850 crossfire setup has lasted 4 years i really wanted a single crossfire solution to work but there is a compatibility issue somewhere and i can't build an entire system around this card

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card, quiet, cool, and not power hungry

Pros: I bought two of them for SLI. I've been playing Far Cry 4 on ultra settings at 1920X1080p with txaa X4 and all the Nvidia add on's, and still average between 60-80fps. Occasionally drops to 50fps or so when it gets really hairy. They are so quiet I have to keep checking afterburner to make sure the fans are actually running. Really like the MSI software (afterburner and gaming app) to monitor and OC the cards. Took me a while to mess with settings (like power options in windows and Nvidia control panel) to get them working at full load. I bought a 1000w psu to support my whole system, but that one arrived DOA so I used my old 750w and it is more than enough. So far I'm pretty Impressed. (Oh I'm upgrading from a ref. HD 7950 so it's a huge difference for me lol)

Cons: Well there is that whole 3.5g/4g vram issue.. I did know that buying them so I really can't complain. I've heard mixed reviews on 970 SLI at 4k, so I'm interested to see how that works out.

Other Thoughts: I bought this over a 980 because for the sake of around $100 more I could get two of them. Great performance for the money!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Awesome reference card and a great price. I am running the card on a 850w rosewill PSU alongside an AMD FX 9590 with no problems. I will be upgrading the PSU to a EVGA 1300w supply soon and adding an additional r9 290x to the team. The Radeon logo along the side of the card lights up brilliantly, and the red fan on the card itself puts off a good amount of light.

Cons: None, so far

1 out of 5 eggsDefective NON REFUNDABLE!!!!!!!

Pros: Read it was great, did not get to experience any of this sadly.

Cons: Died before it left the box.

Other Thoughts: I would guess quality control was pretty high on a $700 product. Guess not, this card blue screened from the get go. Tech support is terrible spent a good while listening to how the drivers were not installed correctly. I have literally done everything to get this to work, re installed win 7 so many times I have memorized my key. Says drivers aren't working properly no matter what I uninstall or re install even used 3rd party uninstallers. Wouldn't be that big of a deal except for the fact that its non refundable. I wouldn't let people return something either if the chances of it dying were high. Now I have to ship this thing out and wait..........also PSU is EVGA supernova g2 1300watt perfectly fine and brand new.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry you are having issues with your 295X2. Blue screening can be caused by nearly every component in the system. Did you try removing the graphics card and replacing it with a different unit?

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome card

Pros: This card can handle anything. Am running it on 3 Asus 144hz monitors and have been able to play everything maxxed out in eyefinity without a hitch. Was looking at getting one of these when the price first dropped to $1000, but at the current $700 it's a steal.

Cons: none really - only con for me (and this will likely be only me) is that i did not realize the fan lit up bright red (thought it would be just the logo on side) which clashes slightlky with my blue/white theme. guess i'll have to swap my color scheme a little or just leave it a patriotic red, white and blue lol

Other Thoughts: wondering if 4 GPUs would scale well enough to make buying a second one worthwhile :P
