Today we are checking out our third Radeon R9 280X graphics card. The previous two cards were from Sapphire and Gigabyte and both those cards featured factory overclocks and custom cooling solutions. That card we are taking a look at today is no different. The ASUS Radeon R9 280X DirectCU II TOP features a factory overclock up to 1070 MHz, ASUS’s own DirectCU II cooling solution, DIGI+ VRM with 12-phase Super Alloy Power, and ASUS’s own GPU Tweak utility for easy tuning and monitoring of the card. Will this be your choice when looking at a Radeon R9 280X? Read on and find out!
Special thanks to ASUS for providing us with the Radeon R9 280X DirectCU II TOP Video Card to review.
The Radeon R9 280X DirectCU II TOP comes in ASUS’s typical graphics card packaging. On the front of the box it lets you know some of the main features of the card. On the back it goes into more detail on those features and gives you an overview of the card.
