5/ 5

Pros: To my understanding most if not all of these cards come with proper hardware to be flashed with the XFX r9 290x firmware and unlock the extra shaders. I found a with a little effort that has a checker to determine if your card will work correctly or not. I just picked up a used one for 270 bucks, (was likely used to mine coins) but i trust it will work and if it doesnt unlock, oh well i have a 290 :DDD we'll see. With the increase of ASIC miners these will likely be up for sale used ( like mine) i'll update when I attempt to flash. Good luck!

Cons: i do not have it in my hands yet :/

Unable to start support ticket!!

Pros: fast
plays any game I want on ultra

Cons: xfx support ticket site isn't working
I've tried many times on different computers and devices and still nothing.
I need to get some input on my issues. .
- I have been having 4 lines scroll up my screen, like artifacts but not white line. They don't bother me but they do get annoying to see. They are highly visible during fast camera movements in games.
- I've been having boot issues and crashing. The boot issue is because the card makes the system boot legacy instead instead of UEFI, which I use in 8.1. Boots fine but still has hiccups when forced UEFI boot in BIOS. The crashing hasn't happened but a few times. The card becomes unresponsive and the mobo doesn't recognize the card until a full shutdown.
Please please, xfx say something. I want this taken care of before the warranty is gone.

I love this card, but...

Pros: Very quick card
I can't really find a game that it can't play on ultra settings

Cons: HOT! I max around 90C when I play BF4

I've started to notice that when it gets above 75C-ish it starts to artifact but below that it's completely fine
There is no reason it should be running this hot!

I also get some coil whine around 45% fan usage

I wish I could've got the newer version with better fans...

I have had this card for more than 90 days

Pros: This card is a beast and will play any game i throw at it with more than good fps.The card did unlock very easy to a 290x with the stock xfx 290x firmware. This card also oc'ed to 1125/1275 stable 24/7 and gave the card a 15% boost in Bf4, with an amazing 120fps maxed out at 1080p.I have also put a XSPC water block on it and temps never go above 45 c under load with no under clocking.

Cons: Heat, but i have a water block on it so not too much of a con.

Other Thoughts: Would love to buy one more when the price drops back down to 400.00, witch is what i payed for this one.

Hello and thank you for the great review. Modifying the bios is highly discouraged, as these cards are not 290X units.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at Neweggsupport@xfxforce.com.

inconsistent.. seems broken

Pros: when it works it's fast

Cons: very inconsistent performance... Sometimes my games are smooth as butter sometimes the fps is worse than my old GPU. One day I'm play Crysys3 maxed out on ultra at 60fps.. next day its 15-20 fps and black screens my system after 10 seconds...

It's been very hard to troubleshoot the issues due to their random nature. I've reinstalled the drivers several times and I have manually set up the fan speed.

Nothing has had any effect... Sometimes the card works and mostly it doesn't. Maybe it's broken?

Hello Ruben,

The 290A requires a 6pin and 8pin power connector. Its possible that your PSU is providing PCI-E Cables from the non-modular section at 20A, instead of 30A, which can lead to similiar issues. Try switching the PCI-E power cables.

If you are still having issues, please contact us at neweggsupport@xfxforce.com. We are confident we can resolve this issue for you.

Thank you

Wait

Pros: Wait for the XFX card with dual fans to come out. This card hits around 93 degrees on load. Have very good air flow in my case. Runs anything on ultra, pure awesome. Starcraft 2 getting 190 fps on ultra. Getting 500-980 khash litecoin mining (dont really care about that got it for games)

Cons: Runs hot. Expensive

Other Thoughts: wait for the other xfx version with the dual fans. Way quieter and way cooler, had a xfx 6870 and was awesome. will buy from xfx again

Ulamog, the infinite gyre.

Pros: It's fast. Average 62FPS in Unigine Valley Extreme HD.
It overclocks well (1050/1325).
It came with Battlefield 4 (merely register with XFX).
Low MSRP ($400).

Cons: It runs at ~93 Celsius in most any game.
It sounds like a jet engine (I've never had it go over 70%).
Some coil whine, on low resolutions.
Overpriced at the moment.

Other Thoughts: You might want to wait for the non-reference coolers.
