XFX FX-799A-XNF9 Radeon HD 7990 6GB 384-Bit x2 GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: 1) Consumes more power than the other high end Nvidia cards
2) Runs pretty hot, fans stay pretty low so I made some custom settings with MSI Afterburner (no OC, stock setting). Idle without custom is 40-42C, under load I have seen it go up to 80C playing Blood Dragon.
3) Pricey with only a 2 year warranty
4) Have to dock and egg not for the performance, but the packaging. (see below)

Cons: 1) Consumes more power than the other high end Nvidia cards
2) Runs pretty hot, fans stay pretty low so I made some custom settings with MSI Afterburner (no OC, stock setting). Idle without custom is 40-42C, under load I have seen it go up to 80C playing Blood Dragon.

Other Thoughts: 1) Owned 3 XFX cards, have not had any issues thus far. Just like some other reviewers from the other brands my anti-static bag came unsealed. Crossfire bridge was in an unsealed bubble wrap pack. The quality assurance guys don’t need to rush on a $1k card!
2) Also minor cosmetic damage(minor scratches) on the gloss black cooling unit
3) With how hot this thing can get without adjusting the fan yourself, I wonder how long it will last under intense gaming. Quite a few people say that 80-90C is okay, but just because it can go up that high does not mean that you should keep it under that much stress. You never want to run anything under max stress.
4) Last but not least, lucky to get one of these.
