XFX R9 280X Black OC Edition Review

To test power consumption today we are using a Keithley Integra unit and we measure power consumption from the VGA card inputs, not the system wide drain. We measure results while gaming in Crysis Warhead and record the results.
power
The XFX R9 280X Black OC Edition consumes around 230 watts under heavy gaming load.

  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?
