    Great Entry Card and Brand

    Posted

    I bought this card as a interim card while i dealt with an RMA from XFX this was my 3rd card i bought of this brand and for a basic card to get me by as my Motherboard has no built-in Graphics chip able to run in windows 10. here is the run down of games and stuff, Sound- card is quite even when fans run i could not hear them over my other case fans as i did with my XFX Radeon R9 390 DD 8GB (the card RMA) Graphics - while i waited for the RMA i was able to do most my gaming except for skyrim with ENB but the card can play skyrim without an ENB at near perfect 60FPS some mods had to be removed that required the ENB Games played include but not limited to at 1920x1080@60Hz: Skyrim LE Skyrim SSE Fallout 4, Winning Putt Golf MMO Call of Duty MW3 among others only Fallout 4 and CoD MW3 had lower FPS but was playable Now as a company i have nothing but praise for them as the RMA went flawless great support on the phone. Office in southern California. My 390 card was tested found fulty after almost 2 years of use. they then sent me a new card a RX 480 8GB RS Version BB exclusive with Fan Swap which they felt was comparable to my 390 (not made anymore) had a minor issue with Black screens with new card their phone support told me what to do since the RX 550 was still being used though i updated and reinstalled the drivers once to change the cards out. so far no issues with the Black screen. XFX is the best company i have dealt with from RMA and that is something since i normally use Asus, Thermaltake, corsair and AMD parts and have RMA with ASUS before (they have good Service but no where near the quality XFX has Shown). A+ service by the brand and solid card for casual but sometimes heavy gaming

    I have had this card installed for a couple weeks now & i had upgraded from a R7 due to some software issues and this is a huge upgrade to what i had before and the software works great. The install was very easy and the windows 10 automatically installed drivers for proper function out of the box but i do recommend you go to XFX website and download the latest software package for full functionality . The card looked and felt very high quality with its constructions one thing i was surprised in is how the fan only runs when it needs to so less noise and power consumption for your system so dont panic if you dont see the fan running . There is no power connectors for this card so its and easy install. Now on to the software the install was a breeze and the whole platform is well laid out and easy to understand but there is one thing i noticed in my system is it would not let me update the software so i had to go back to the XFX website and download the update from there so not a big issue but just FYI.. This comes with a 3 yr warranty so do register it and your covered . YES I WOULD RECOMMEND .

    Good mid-ranged GPU

    Coming off of a high end build and going to a build where I needed much less power, this is my first experience with a Radeon GPU. It can play modern games on a medium setting at a full 1080p. For the price, it's pretty good. The only reason why the product gets a 4 star instead of 5, is its own competition: the Radeon RX 560. Best buy tends to sell that card for about $10-$20 more, but the performance increase the card gives, if you can afford it- go with that over this. If you cant, this card is still good for the price. Thermal: Great! I had no overheating or loudness issues. Performance: Good. Don't expect the highest settings in demanding games, but it should play e-sport games beautifully. Price: Good. It would be better if it wasn't competing against its stronger sibbling, the RX560.

    I decided to build a new HTPC for my new LG B7 65" TV and wanted to see how well this card performs, I also bought the new Internal Pioneer BDR-211UBK 4K Blu-ray for the build & Corel WinDVD Pro12 software and after setting up everything, Wow! Amazing picture! Just remember the motherboard needs to have HDMI 2.0 out to TV, *Certified HDMI 2.0 cable, this is needed for HDR play back content! If you don't use a good APU then this is where this card comes in, it has all the features needed, it's low power, quite & cool running 4Gb supports Ultra 4K in HDR! Oh.. and yes it can play most games at medium settings max, a Radeon RX-570 or Geforce GTX 1060 or higher for you gamers!...ok back to the movie!

    Solid Budget GPU

    I have been pretty happy overall with the unit. I like the ability to purchase it in store for warranty and return policies. It really does perform well and has been able to handle just about any game I have thrown at it while keeping a decent temperature. The biggest issue I have had is AMD driver stability with Windows 10. After downloading the recommended updates I would occasionally get a blue, purple etc. screen at boot or after OS initialization. Card is built well and it has performed above my expectations for the price. Also works pretty well with MSI afterburner which is pretty cool (if you don't like using Radeon settings).

    Great Card For A Decent Price

    I purchased this card as an upgrade for my current desktop computer in order to add a second screen for doing audio/visual work and I have to say it was a great choice. The card was easy to install, simply unplug the computer and take out the old card and insert the new card. With all appropriate precautions taken. I mainly use the capabilities of this card for doing audio/visual work and don't using it for gaming, so I don't know how well it would do in that respect, but for what I needed to do it has been great!

    I have not play any games on this card. As a matter of fact I build this rig for one of the girls in my office. Works great out of the box pair up with a Ryzen 5 1500 first generation CPU and a 16 Memory sticks DDR 4.I have decided to use this card because the lack of video on the CPU itself. Looks good,is not a power hungry monster,. It looks cheap but its working fine.

    After purchasing a 4k monitor with my new computer, I was disappointed to learn that I could only get 30fps with a 4k monitor using and hdmi cable. This card has displayport support, so after installation I'm now able to get 4k at 60fps. MUCH NICER! I'm not a gamer, I bought this card to improve my overall Windows experience and have been pleased. Note: it fit fine in my off the shelf asus desktop and I did not need to replace the power supply.
