XFX R9 280X Black OC Edition Review

For our overclocking tests today we used MSI Afterburner – based on Rivatuner.

We managed to push the core clock speed from 1,100mhz to 1,203mhz – translating into a 9.4% overclock. The memory could be overclocked to 1,708mhz before we noticed some very minor artifacting.

  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?
