XFX today unveiled the XFX Radeon™ R9 290X, R9 290, R9 280X, R9 270X, R7 260X and R7 250 graphics cards, XFX’s first series of AMD GPUs with AMD’s 2nd Generation GCN Architecture and PowerTune Technology designed for super optimized gaming performance. XFX’s new GPUs also feature AMD’s Mantle and AMD TrueAudio technology, the latest innovations that redefine the GPU by enabling both gamers and game developers with unprecedented audio and performance enhancements for compatible games1.
XFX Ghost 2.0 Thermal Technology
The XFX Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics cards are also the first introduction of the all-new XFX Ghost 2.0 thermal design, which is a substantial design evolution from the original Ghost thermal design introduced in 2012. XFX’s new Ghost 2.0 features the same open airflow design for maximum cooling as well as a new lightweight poly carbonate construction for super high durability and heat resistance. A new two-piece design which protects PCB components from damage and dust and created a beautiful modern design unlike any other graphics card in history.
Select XFX graphics cards now feature higher voltage caps giving gamers the power to customize and truly push their graphics cards to the limit.
Digital power supply signal provides voltage signals that are more stable and accurate than conventional analog designs, meaning the voltage can be adjusted more quickly and precisely during overclocking. The result is more stable overclocking.
More Power Phases
XFX Graphics cards with unlocked voltage utilize a 6phase vs 5phase power design. This provides 20% lower temperature on the power IC, and provide stable power to the GPU for better overclocking.
2nd Generation PowerTune Technology
The XFX R-Series of graphics cards will feature the second generation of AMD’s PowerTune technology, which offers a substantial improvement over the previous generation. PowerTune features real-time voltage and clock speed optimization enables intelligent power monitoring to enable higher clock speeds and better performance for the newest games. Tuning the card’s settings to hit its peak clock rate more often.
Mantle and Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture
The award-winning Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture in the AMD Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics cards continues to serve as a driving force behind the Unified Gaming Strategy, now comes together with the introduction of Mantle.
Mantle empowers games like DICE’s “Battlefield 4” to speak the natively with the Graphics Core Next architecture for a deeper level of hardware multi-platform compatibility.
TrueAudio Technology: World’s First Programmable Audio Pipeline
XFX R-Series GPUs featuring AMD TrueAudio technology empowers game developers with a programmable audio pipeline on the GPU through a built-in audio signal processor which supports 150 sound sources vs the previous limitation of only 50 sounds. TrueAudio enables 7.1 surround through headphones and zero CPU overhead. This enables game to utilize more realistic environmental dynamics, a richer tapestry of sound effects, breathtaking directional audio and more.
Multi-Display Technology: Redesigned for
XFX Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics cards are made for gaming on UltraHD 4K (3840x2160) displays. Additionally, with AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology, gamers are free to use virtually any combination of display outputs when connecting matching monitors to the DVI or HDMI® outputs on their system.
XFX Radeon R9 and R7 Series graphics cards will be available for purchase in the near future.
XFX a division of
1.Application support for Mantle is required. AMD TrueAudio technology is offered with select AMD Radeon™ R9 and R7 200 Series GPUs and is designed to improve acoustic realism. Requires enabled game or application. Not all audio equipment supports all audio effects; additional audio equipment may be required for some audio effects. Not all products feature all technologies — check with the component or system manufacturer for specific capabilities.
