XFX R9 280X Black OC Edition Review

Aliens V Predator has proved to be a big seller since the release and Sega have taken the franchise into new territory after taking it from Sierra. AVP is a Direct X 11 supported title and delivers not only advanced shadow rendering but high quality tessellation for the cards on test today. To test the cards we used a 1920×1080 / 2560×1600 resolution with DX11, Texture Quality Very High, MSAA Samples 1, 16 af, ambient occulsion on, shadow complexity high, motion blur on.
AvP 1920

AvP 2560
Smooth frame rates at both 1920×1080 and 2560×1600, slightly faster than the Sapphire R9 280X Vapor X.

  1. Thats the nicest looking GPU I have ever seen.

  2. Good board, but I think Sapphire nailed it with the Toxic Edition – looks a better built card too.

    Still this is cheaper, so horses for courses.

  3. I’m with Ben on this one, its one of the most understated, but visually stunning cards I’ve seen in a long time!
    Performance is great, but price is even better, I’d love one in my system 😉

  4. Have you checked with xfx about clock times because scan still is listing black edition with this clock speed 1080-6200 MHz, so this is the same card you have reviewed with lower clock speed?
