Award Winning Technologies
The reviews are in, and the RX series from XFX Rocks.
Check out our reviews section for the latest awards. Reviews "So obviously XFX has stumbled across some sort of magic formula when it comes to the RX 480." - Jayztwocents “XFX has put together a solid and well-built video card. It operates silently, power efficient and very cool.” - Overclocker's Club "I think its pretty damn awesome that you can hard change all these different fans and different colors" - Tech of Tomorrow
The First Hard Swap Detachable Fan Design
XFX patented fan design lets you change or upgrade fans in a snap.
Fans are an essential function of a graphics card and directly affect it's performance, and even though we use the best fan's on the market the performance will decrease over time. In the past it was difficult if not impossible to replace GPU fans on your own but now with XFX's Hard Swap technology, you can upgrade your fan in an instant. We even offer different upgrade option for higher performance or color LED options for customization.
Bright LED Logo Design
Light up your case and show your XFX pride.
Our bright XFX LED not only looks great and shows off your awesome rig, it also lets others know that this isn't some average off the shelf scrub computer, this is a hard core gaming computer powered by the best graphics card on the market. You play like a pro and your system looks just as professional.
High Performance Unibody Heatsink
Enhances thermal efficiency by 40%
The XFX RX GTR series features our all new Unibody VRM Heatsink construction enable direct transfer to the primary heatsink and heatpipes. This unique combination of material and construction enhances thermal efficiency by a total of 40%.
XFX Dual BIOS Capable
You choose your experience
We know enthusiast like options, so for our RX 480 GTR and RS series graphics cards we are offering Dual BIOS options. If you want optimal performance and want to keep your card cool as possible then use our Performance BIOS. If you prefer stealth, our Quiet Lower RPM BIOS might be the right options for you. Check our RX 480 Bios page for details.
Custom XFX Aluminum Backplate Design
Protects your GPU while providing additional cooling overall
GPUs are one of the most important, complex and delicate peices of hardware in your computer and as a game, nothing is as important and the slightest bend can drastically affect the performance of your graphics card. But that's a thing of the past because XFX's solid backplate keeps the card strong and secure, eliminating card bend. Graphics cards also emit some heat from the back as well which rises up and affects other components but our cool aluminum backplate can absorb that heat and keep the overall case cooler.
Enhanced VRM and Memory Cooling
Cooling technologies don't stop at just the GPU.
After countless hours of research, development, and testing our engineers have developed all new VRM and Memory cooling technology, reducing temperatures VRM by up to 30' C and GDDR temperatures by 20' C, all while reducing dB noise by an additional 5%. Best in class for the GPU enthusiast.
XFX Exclusive Ultra Low Noise XL Inductors
Quieter than the competition.
GPU inductors are notoriously noisy with that tiny buzzing noise caused by traditional low quality inductors but XFX's exclusive premium quality XL Inductors utilize multiple layers to seal the Inductors completely and securely nearly eliminating inductor noise.
All New Composite Heatpipe Technology
We combined technologys to create the first super heatpipe.
The new composite heatpipe design used in the XFX Radeon™ RX GTR combines the technologies of both Liquid and Capilary Action heatpipes into one. Doing so allows us to increase the total heatpipe surface area by 30% which tremendously increases the thermal efficiency.
All New Zero dB Auto Load Sensing Fans
Power when you need it and quiet when you don't.
XFX fans are equipped to run at the highest possible performance, while our Zero DB Fan System will also keep your fans running at efficient RPM in order to minimize annoying fan noise by lowering RPM all the way down to Zero RPM. When the heat is on during intense gaming, our fans will speed up as needed.
XFX True Clock Technology
Always running at the best speeds
Software controlled clock speed optimizers can be hindered by overall computer performance, heavy loads can cause it to misread the maximum potential clock speed of the graphics card at any given moment. XFX's True Clock however is hardware controlled clock speed performance optimization so it's always running at peak performance all the time.
