XFX R9 290 DD Review

Unigine Heaven

After a swathe of great results the Unigine ones are a mixed bag, with the stock performance of the XFX just showing up when the pressure is really on. Of course nobody would expect a stock 290 to handle 8xMSAA @ 1440P and we're no different. With no anti-aliasing on it's very good though.

How were the VRM temperatures? They are pretty poor from what I've seen on the net.

For the record, you have to be very careful when buying this card that you get the version that actually cools the VRM. As it gets so bad it throttles.

This card may look like sex, but I still can't shake off ALL the damn build quality issues alot of us had with the previous gen of XFX cards.

(VRM not VRAM, Silly me)Quote
