Worked well for 1.5 years. Began to artifact and eventually died.

Jean S., Newegg
1 March 2016
  • Summary: I would recommend the 280x, not the Gigabyte version. When I RMA'd it Gigabyte is trying to send me a 380 card, a new version of the 285, a card much worse than the 280x. RMA process has taken 3 weeks now. Slow responses, terrible detail with what's actually happening.
  • Pros: Played games on good settings for a while.
  • Cons: Runs hot Began to artifact Repeatedly overheated since day of purchase Finally died, but when I RMA'd it Gigabyte is trying to send me a 380 card, a new version of the 285, a card much worse than the 280x.

Card is loud and cooler is flimsy.

Anonymous, Newegg
26 February 2016
  • Summary: Ultimately, one of the cooler fans came loose from the motor and started vibrating and wouldn't spin freely. This card uses a proprietary Gigabyte form factor design, not the reference AMD design, which prohibits aftermarket coolers from being installed.
  • Pros: It is a tuned AMD 280x, and has performed well for about 1.5 years, with the exception of the cooler.
  • Cons: The cooler is 3 ball bearing motors held in with plastic and tiny screws. This creates a lot of vibration and fan noise.

How many times do you need to send a bad card in before they will replace it?

Squeegee, Amazon
22 February 2016
  • Summary: Have had this exact card sent in to Gigabyte in December. Same problems persist. Will hang system shortly after boot and sometimes during high GPU gaming. Have tried in three different computers with 700-750 watt power supplies. Systems are stable using similar spec graphics card. Come on, Gigabyte.

Buyer Beware

TODD T., Newegg
10 February 2016
  • Summary: This card did not work correctly from the purchase date (10/28/2014). It has been RMA'd 3 times since then and Gigabyte refuses to replace the card with something of equal quality. The final straw was when I agreed, at the advice of Gigabyte support, to receive an R9 380 as a replacement card.
  • Pros: Uhhh Dual BIOS I guess? Being able to switch from one non-working BIOS to a second non-working BIOS is the best!
  • Cons: - Artifacting - White screens with cool vertical grey lines - Constant TDR errors, even after forcing detection to OFF in the registry - Zero BIOS updates

Good card for gaming, but very very LOUD

T. Chan, Amazon
1 February 2016
  • Summary: Got this for a gaming computer my son and I built. Good card for gaming, but very very LOUD. It also gets very hot. My son ended up putting the PC on the floor behind a dresser. Tolerable, but still loud enough to have to turn off at night so he can sleep.

Better than MSI or XFX

Trevor Fellman, Amazon
20 January 2016
  • Summary: This is a great card, better than MSI and XFX in our experience. The R9 280X is a veteran of a chipset, and currently the best value for serious gamers. It may not be the newest, but is powerful, will play any of game out there. Put them in Crossfire and you've got a beast.
