XFX Radeon RX 480 DirectX 12 RX-480M4BFA6 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

5 out of 5 eggs Great $ for the performance and it unlocked :D 07/10/2016

This review is from: XFX Radeon RX 480 DirectX 12 RX-480M4BFA6 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Excellent performance for a $199 graphics card. Came very close to my R9 390 OC and used a lot less power and has the ability to use VSR at >60hz. With my Nixeus VUE24A I am able to use VSR to game at 1440p and stay over 60hz while using Freesync, something my R9 390 can't do. New drivers have the power issues resolved and it's done wonders. New Wattman utility works great with the RX 480

Cons: Difficult time holding Boost clock without tweaking, but possible.

Other Thoughts: I was glad to see mine unlocked to the 8GB model, but what I'm not happy about was that Newegg originally listed this one as having a backplate, then later revised the listing before mine arrived....not cool

Pros: Beautiful build quality.
The adjustable stand is one that all monitor manufacturer's should be judged by.
Matte screen so minimally reflective.
Comes with every cable imaginable for connections.
USB 3.0 hub on monitor and fast charging port for portable devices.
Easy to assemble and setup.
At least looking at the monitor is nice.

Cons: 1st thing, upon turning on the monitor you're typically greeted with a capacitor blowing sound of a *POP* from the built in speakers regardless of the input type.
Secondly, a terribly annoying flickering at the bottom of the screen, again regardless of input cable, and a nasty vertical line appeared after about 12 hours right down the center of the screen.

3RD and MOST important, there is a noticeable and measurable 50ms input lag, this makes gaming nigh impossible. Even on the desktop when navigating it's noticeable. It's even MORE apparent if you're running multiple monitors ans switch between them. It's not "slight" input lag, it's MASSIVE input lag.

Other Thoughts: So basically the image is great but it's a pain to actually use since you feel like your computer is constantly playing catch up.

Now I know that some people will wonder if it was my gpu that couldn't keep up but I tried several different one's to rule out that possibility. I tried with my R9 295x2 and R9 390x, then again with a friends Nvidia gpu, and all experienced that terrible lag.

Thinking that maybe if I tried the Dual Link DVI cable I could at least try 1440p or even 1080p, but as soon as you use any other connection than the DP it goes from a 60hz monitor to a 30hz monitor.

Needless to say after a couple days of dealing with this the best course of action was to box it up and ship it back, time to try again when I save up a bit more money.

That's what I recommend most people do, I'm not going to excuse any issues on something this expensive to save face and not look like I made a mistake, and if you're a gamer of any variety, THIS monitor is a mistake for you.

I just wanted to let you all know my experience with it.

XFX Core Edition Radeon HD 7850 DirectX 11 FX-785A-ZNL4 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Being used in a HTPC/Living room gaming PC.

Since it's being used in the living room while sitting on the couch I play most games at medium settings and the 1b of vram never presents any problems

Rebranded as the R7 265 if you're curious about more recent benchmarks

XFX's lifetime warranty so I never have to worry bout the card :D

Cons: small fan....bland, not much overclocking headroom due to lackluster cooling
