5 out of 5 eggsThe Beast that never stops fighting

Pros: Was unbeatable for Price/Performance when I got it in September, and still is.
Incredible floating point performance in GPGPU applications. 11.5TFLOPS is insane (It makes the TOP500 supercomputer list for 2006!), and allows me to get 500k - 550k/day in Folding@Home (distributed computing) with just the card alone!
Fantastic gaming performance WHEN you're playing games with a CrossFire profile.
Quiet, my case fans are more noticeable than this.
Handles load well, doesn't break a sweat when running Titanfall at Ultra 4k with 2x AA.
Beautiful design, got a shiver pulling it out of the box.

Example: One day, I wondered why there was some FPS lag (I run all games at Ultra 4k, why not?). Did a quick check of task manger between spawns, then bruised my head on my desk picking my jaw up off of the floor. Folding@Home was running at full load in the background, while driving a game at Ultra 4k. No melting computer, no screaming fans. Yeah, its OP.

Cons: Drivers are terrible. Crash-prone if you try to run CrossFire in any game that doesn't have a profile, and sometimes won't play nice with Folding@Home.

AMD made a token effort to provide features similar to Nvidia's GeForce experience. However, the software feels unfinished, has some performance issues, and still falls way short in terms of features and capability.

If the card is idling, you can hear the water sloshing in the loop sometimes. Think that might just be a issue with my individual card, but worth mentioning if you only use it for gaming, or are doing a HTPC build with this.

Power requirements are insane, make SURE you have enough power to feed it!

Other Thoughts: Just ordered another one less than a week ago, might try to crossfire them. We shall see.

The card has a very elegant design. There is a dedicated controller on the board that synchronizes the two chips, and allows them to communicate faster than if they were connected over the bus/bridge. Additionally, there is a Dual-BIOS, and a 18mhz overclock. The engineering team that made this definitely deserves a bonus!

3 out of 5 eggsReview for XFX Core Edition R9-295X-8QFA Radeon R9 295x2 8GB 1024

Pros: Fast Card, Heavy and well built. The Cooling system works great in push pull which was easy to install considering this was my first water anything. Never gets over 70c even after 3 consecutive runs of Fire Strike. Received a 3DMark score of 14000 even on Gigabyte x58 Motherboard . I am currently running driver ver. 14.502.1014Beta and have had no problems with AMD Software after using Display driver uninstall (DDU) to remove the leftover NVidia stuff.

Cons: The card is long almost 13 in. could only install one without removing drive cage. Overtaxed my UPS and had to connect direct to the Wall. Thought it was my Rosewell 1000w Power supply so I replaced it with a Corsair 1200i. Sure enough Corsair Link confirms this thing pulls 500 watts. With the Mini Display Port 1.2 this card can do 4K @ 60hz but the mDP to HDMI connector supplied will only do 1080p. One egg off

Other Thoughts: I bought this Card to do 4k @ 60hz but most of the new 4k TV's only support HDMI 2.0. Even if I were to buy an 18Gb mini Display Port to HDMI cable, I still will only be able to do 4k @ 30hz as the R9 295x2 only recognizes HDMI 1.4a. 1.4 egg off.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Scott,

As you mentioned, the 1.4 and 1.4A adapters limit us to 30hz for 4k through HDMI-MDP adapters. Hopefully this will be updated in the next series.

5 out of 5 eggsBeast of a card

Pros: Very powerful , great temps . Running on beta drivers right now for GTA V . This card burns through anything I throw at it. Running it on asus Maximus hero VII , I7 4770k @ 4.5 . 16 gb ballistix tracer 1866 . Just make sure you have a case to fit this card . The water lines make it a bit wider so need to take that into consideration . This card has no problems keeping high fps .

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For the price could of came with 2 fans but not a big deal 1 fan works perfectly .

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

Thank you for the great review.

1 out of 5 eggsNothing but problems

Pros: N/A

Cons: This is my second card and it will not show a display in bios or any boot. No Windows display. Nothing! Tried Corsair 1500i. My board is Asus MAXIMUS VII Hero. The card is connected to a Dell U3014 via the card's mini displayport to the monitor displayport. This is obviously not a driver issue as the POST screen or Windows never shows. The pc will boot because I can hear the Windows welcome jingle and I can shut it off using my CRTL+ALT+S shutdown shortcut.

I've read many mini displayport problems with this card and am at a stand-still with this thing.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Victor,

Having 2 DOA 295x2's is exceptionally rare. Its more likely a minor setup issue or power draw failure. please contact us at neweggsupport@xfxforce.com for quick help to get this resolved.

Thanks

4 out of 5 eggsWorks As Advertised

Pros: Powerful
Quiet (as a car of this power is expected to be)
Runs Cool

Cons: A Recent Issue With HDI adapter Not turning on the Connected Monitor Regardless of what port it is plugged into, have to knock an egg off for that.

Other Thoughts: Wish it had regular HDMI Port.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello and thank you for the kind review. We are happy you are pleased. HDMI adapters can be fickle. Are you still having issues with the adapter or port?

I want you to know that we stand by our products 100% and are always ready to help resolve any issues you are having.

5 out of 5 eggsSeems pretty beefy

Pros: This card is the equivalent of a Ferrari if cards were compared to GPUs!

500w Tdp.. Dang. but this card tears through anything thrown at it.
My 2 270x Cards would get 130 fps Furmark fullscreen, this gets 22x
under the same conditions.
Also this card is surprisingly quiet!!

Cons: That TDP tho. I have an 800watt Psu and was worried if this would run at load. Apparently it does somehow.

Other Thoughts: Something weird happen after I initially installed the 295x2.
During the bootup process my screen went black a couple times like twice. I shut off the PC and re adjusted the PciE 8 pins and it seemed to have fixed it even under heavy load and stress testing. Hoping it was just the power but no artifacts so far and the card works so props to the manufacturer for making such a great card for enthusiasts.

Manufacturer Response:

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

1 out of 5 eggsExtremely Frustrated & Dissatisfied with this Product

Pros: Absolutely none with the problems I am experiencing with this card. Have had this card for just over a month and it has been nothing but frustration and disappointment.

Cons: I have built several Mid range Gaming PCs and this time I went a little more high end with the following components and the most expensive being this video card:
1) ASUS Crosshair V Formula-Z AM3+ AMD 990FX + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Gaming Motherboard with 3-Way SLI/CrossFireX Support and UEFI BIOS

2) AMD FX-8370 Vishera 8-Core 4.0GHz (4.3GHz Turbo) Socket AM3+ 125W FD8370FRHKBOX Desktop Processor

3) G.SKILL Trident X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 2400 (PC3 19200) Desktop Memory Model F3-2400C10D-16GTX

4) Rosewill LIGHTNING-1300 - 1300-Watt Modular, Active PFC Power Supply - Continuous @ 122 Degrees F (50C), 80 PLUS Gold, ATX 12V v2.31 & EPS 12V v2.92, Intel Haswell, SLI & CrossFire-Ready

5) Antec Twelve Hundred V3 Black Steel ATX Full Tower Unbeatable Gaming Case

First problem when I try to use the DVI to HDMI Adapter provided with the card when windows 7 boots up I get a PINK login screen and if I do a restart of the computer same result .If I disconnect the Adapter and plug it back in the screen returns to normal- So I am forced to use the DVI port on my Monitor and not the HDMI adapter. I tried using the Adapter on my Radeon 5870s and its does not exhibit this problem so it rules out the adapter and my ASUS Monitor HDMI port.

Now the real MAJOR PROBLEM. No matter what games I am playing when I try to put settings at MAX I am just barely getting 60FPS. 3DMARK tests scores are sub PAR for the claims of what this card should be capable of handling. During 3DMark Tests visuals are not as impressive as occasionally see some jittery/flashing on some tests and some occasional graininess. Newer games are getting 40 FPS or less- see below:

"Batman:Arkham Origins" never get above 60-61 FPS with max settings and this also is a relatively older game.

Call of Duty: Black OPS with Max Settings getting 49-60 FPS but does remain about 60 most of the time. Game released in Nov 2010. Still pathetic for this Video card....


Call of Duty Ghosts on SINGLE PLAYER mode is totally unplayable due to some much choppy jitter and 30 FPS MAX. I expected this card this price to be a Jaggernaut but it has been the absolute opposite. My Radeon 8570's in Crossfire in my older Gaming PC are performing better than this so called #1 Video card.

XFX support is claiming that something else in this high end brand new Rig is bottle-necking this Video card. I simply have a hard time believing that but why I am having these issues remains a total mystery.

Other Thoughts: This card is also very large so not easy to fit in the case. The claim is the Radiator will fit in any Case Fan slot and this is not true. It is much larger than an ATX Case fan. I was however able to accommodate in this Antec case.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello Bill,

We're sorry you are having trouble with your FPS. When vertical sync is enabled, FPS will cap at 60. If you disable it, you will find much higher fps.

The HDMI adapter sounds fautly, we would be happy to send you a replacement to resolve this issue.

We a driver tutorial to help solve any software related issues this may be caused by, please contact me for support.

Pros: it's truely the fastest vga in the world at this period. i'm using 1440p monitor and this monster dominate any game at ultra seting (GTA 5, BATTLEFIELD 4).

very cool, thank to liquid cooling, even under 100% 2 gpu usage conditon , the temperature was just around 72-74c.

Cons: poor intruction. it seems to be the first vga using liquid cooling technology. but the intruction didn't mention any thing about it.

Manufacturer Response:

2 out of 5 eggsGreat card for 4K while it was working

Pros: Out of the box it worked, new omega drivers went on flawlessly, and it was running all my favorite games in 4k great. I was actually impressed on its size, I was expecting it to be a much larger card.

Cons: Within the first week, I started having device disconnect / reconnect sounds from windows. Screen would go black for a second then come back. At the end of the first week I had some of my first crashes during gaming. Second week, the problems seemed to resolve themselves. Towards the end of the second week I started getting the connect / disconnect device sounds accompanied by black screen. The stability of the card was starting to come into question, but I was concerned it may be something else too. In the middle of a WoW raid, screen went black and stayed that way. The video card no longer functioned. Due to odd error codes from the motherboard, I proceeded to RMA the motherboard. On arrival on the new mobo, it gives one error, the video card.

On to the next point, XFX support. I put in a ticket yesterday to try and get this issue resolved. I am still waiting to hear a response back, but expect ill hear something in the next day or two.

I am not too happy about having to deal with this kind of headache on such an expensive video card. I hope that Xfx would be kind enough to send me a new one so I wont have to wait another two weeks to use my brand new computer that I just built just over a month ago.

I have always been a Nvidia guy, and was going to run 2 GTX 980's in SLi over this card, but the sale that was running on it and the built in watercooling had me intrigued. Knowing what I know now I should have RMAd the car at the first set of connect disconnect issues.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

We're sorry you are having issues with your 295x2. Is it possible to try this card in a different system or a different PSU?

I would like to expedite your RMA request, please email me your ticket # so i can get started.
