Black Edition Overclocked:
This card features XFX’s unique Overclock GPU core at 1000 MHz which is 75 MHz more than the base models. Push your gaming experience to the max.

GPU Edging:
Exclusive XFX Black Edition selection process to identify the top one percent of GPUs capable of reaching maximum overclock speeds. Unlike factory overclock and maximum overclock, which only increases wattage to increase clock speeds, our high-quality Duratec components allows users to do the same, but keep the overall card wattage the same as a standard card by lowering overall wattage loss.

Duratec Professional Grade Components:
Duratec Professional Grade technology represents XFX’s high standard for component quality. Graphics cards featuring Duratec standards offer high quality components such as 2oz Copper PCB, Solid Polymer Capacitors, Ferrite Core Chokes, IP-5X Certified Dust Free Fans and XFX’s exclusive bracket design for greater airflow.

Double Dissipation Edition:
The XFX Double Dissipation Cooling solution allows for superior cooling whilst actually producing less noise than reference designs. Dual fans, whether over heat-pipes or a HydroCell, triples air flow decreasing processor temperature by 7°C and noise by 13dB.

Ghost Thermal Technology:
Full enclosed thermal covers often trap heat inside of the card and doesn't allow for airflow to exhaust out of the sides, causing a bottleneck effect at the bracket exhaust. Ghost Thermal Design is a floating cover that allows air to travel freely as it cools the PCB and components directly.

Hydrocell Thermal Solution:
HydroCell Technology is based on the same principles as heat-pipe technology. A liquid coolant is vaporized by a hot surface with the resulting vapor condensing on a cold surface, which recirculates back to the hot surface. The recirculation process is controlled by a wick system. The coolant is water, but because the chamber is evacuated to a very low pressure, the Hydro Transport process of vaporization occurs at a much lower temperature than the normal boiling point. The complex wick arrangement inside the module controls the flow of water and water vapor so that the system can be used in any orientation.

 Great card, great price by Josh

Excellent card for just over £300. Benchmarks show that this card can match if not beat a 680 in many games, although both are overkill for todays games at 1080p. As a reference, with V-Sync enabled I get a constant 60 fps in Hitman Absolution on maximum graphics (not noticed one drop below 60!). The card itself is well built and looks a lot better "in the flesh" than in the pictures. Runs very cool idle or under load thanks to the dual fans and I haven't noticed any noise increase from my 5870 with 1 fan.

All in all, great card. If your budget is £300, don't hesitate!
