REPORT ANALYSIS AND FINAL THOUGHTS
If we’re honest, given this card’s age, we weren’t expecting it to be able to keep up with the latest games. That being said, we threw the most graphically demanding titles we had at our disposal at it, and it never broke a sweat! Sure, it didn’t always average over 60 FPS, but it always got damn near close, and did more often than not.
The XFX R9 280 DD offers a price-to-performance ratio that rivals even the latest cards on the market. It can run all of the latest games, and does so while staying cool and relatively quiet. On top of that, you get XFX’s excellent Double Lifetime warranty, which is currently unmatched by any other vendor, and of course their excellent customer service, which we’ve experienced first hand over the years when dealing with their products.
