Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Artifact Problems I just built my new Desktop yesterday, and so far I am having a lot of problems with square like artifacts in games. The card performs very good itself, however, it is all about the look of the game and smoothness. It is all destroyed by these random shapes appearing on the screen which just break the gameplay. 23 August 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by This card has major problems I got the Asus 280x Direct CUII Top as a replacement for a faulty Asus 7970 Matrix Platinum. Unfortunately, it suffered from the exact same artifact problem that the previous Matrix Platinum suffered. I got repeated graphical glitches (stretched textures, square like artifacts) in almost all games I played. It also showed artifacts when browsing in Chrome and watching YouTube videos. I advise anyone who is considering this card to check out the Asus Republic of Gamers forum first. There you will see a thread entitled ' R9 280x Direct CUII Top Artifacts!!'. At the time of writing this review the thread is 44 pages long and has been viewed 38,000 times! Many people have experienced the same problems I had with this card. It seems to be the result of a badly designed card by Asus. The memory has been overclocked too rigorously, some of the memory chips are exposed (ie there are no heat sinks on them) as well as them not being isolated from the main radiator. This seems to be the reason why the chips are overheating and causing graphical glitches. I tried under clocking the memory and this did lessen the frequency of artifacting but not completely. Asus have remained silent on this issue and haven't responded to the huge thread regarding this card on their own forums. Very poor from Asus, I for one will not be buying any more Asus products in the future. In the end a RMA'd the card through Scan and they sent it back to Asus where it was found to be faulty. I now have a GTX 770 as a replacement and so far it has worked flawlessly. Scan we're helpful throughout the RMA and we're very accommodating when I asked to have a 770 as a replacement. Much appreciated Scan. 05 July 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Excellent!! Great card. Excellent performance. Pre-overclocked GPU from the most reliable bits of the silicon wafer for extra performance. Runs nice and quiet too. Excellent value for money. This card is mostly on par with an NVidia GTX770, and in some cases outperforms one! Packs an extra 1Gb vRAM compared to most 770s, for a little less money too. 22 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Card Very good card went from a GTX 460 to this, and what a difference it has made now I can run BF4 on ultra at full HD res :) and as always great service from scan.co.uk 18 May 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Artefacting problem Basically, I've owned this card for a grand total of 4 days, and it's causing no end of problems. It has severe artefacting problems due to the inadequate design of the card. The Factory OCed VRAM overheats and crashes games. The cooler isn't cooling the VRAM adequately, and as such, this is causing severe problems. Just google Asus Radeon R9 280X DirectCUII Top 3GB Artifacting problems and you will find a fairly large thread about it in ROG's forums. Will replace with another manufacturer's card. Will not buy ASUS graphics again, even though I've not had issues with them previously. 13 May 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by good card I like this card very much - it is very quiet under 99% load -much better that sapphire 280X 23 March 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by One disaster but Scan very helful Well, where do I start... I had two Toxic cards from a different supplier that both failed with Artifacting. I came to Scan and tried a different AMD card - this one. Ran it out of the box, Artifacting. Under clocked the card, the card was fine. Spoke with Scan, they took the card back, refund and now I have a very nice Nvidia GTX 770. 3 cards AMD - sadly my faith with AMD cards has suffered completely. 13 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very nice looking Alot bigger than i thought but it doesnt come with any free games. 28 January 2014
