Out of last year’s AMD cards there was one card that stood above the rest with an all metal custom cooler. That was the double dissipation HD 7970 from XFX. This year there is a lot more competition and XFX has changed their design once again. I’m excited to find out how XFX stands up against the competition this year. With a black and chrome it certainly has the styling needed, but how is the performance? Let’s find out!

I hope everyone is ready for the weekend because it is nearly here. Today I take a look at the R9 290 from XFX. We know that the 290's can perform, but how will the XFX compare to the competition.
