Pros: Very good 2K (1440p) performance. I get 100-135 fps in RDR2 and around 90-130 fps in Cyberpunk, depending on what I'm doing and the location. Driving fast hurts the fps a bit, but it beats my old 2080 TI in every way. Games like Dying Light 2 or Witcher 3 easily exceed 144hz on max settings. No coil whine or other noises are noticeable. Temps seem good in my case. My total system power draw in gaming loads is about 625 watts, which is less than I was expecting (CPU is a 7950X) On plasma/wayland in linux, freesync just works out of the box (once you have the drivers set up)
Cons: The dimensions listed here and in XFX's website are just copy/pasted from the reference card. This card is bigger. Luckily I suspected as much before I bought it and went off the Red Devil card dimensions to check if it would fit in my case, which worked out for me. Driver support for linux (specifically Arch) is still bleeding edge. I had to build llvm-minimal-git and then build the latest mesa-git drivers from the AUR snapshot and install those. Then I manually installed the latest linux-firmware build (which I believe has since been updated in the main repo) then I switched to plasma-wayland, and after that it worked beautifully. If you're on Windows or Ubuntu or something you may not have any trouble. This isn't a con for this particular card, it's just because the card and all variants are so new.
Overall Review: Great card. If you're gaming at 1440p/2K resolution this card will run anything at max settings with a good framerate. I haven't tested at other resolutions, but at 1080p you'd likely be CPU/monitor bound with most games and at 4K you'd probably get 60 fps with some settings tweaks. I can understand the hesitance to buy this card over waiting for the XTX, but at 2K res I'm very satisfied with it. If you're running Linux be prepared to build your drivers until the mesa/llvm/firmware packages for your distro are updated.
Pros: Temps and power are amazing the card looks great! Fps is great 😃
Cons: I'll update if I find any issues. So far so good!
Overall Review: I really like this card so far. It a great upgrade from the 6800xt. Cool and quiet.
Pros: 40% faster than the 6800xt in most things Can do 4K where the 6800xt struggled.
Cons: When pushed the fans get loud but, the temps stay manageable. Its a big boy, I replaced the same merc 6800xt this card is bigger.
Overall Review: Overall it was a great upgrade from my 6800xt
Pros: Card performs well, no heat issues. Bought "Deity" of War on Steam Sale for christmas, running beautifully at ultra settings (no HDR, my monitor doesn't support it).
Cons: FreeSync is causing a flickering on my monitor. Turning it off makes it go away. I'm assuming this is a driver issue for now. Cards these days are huge, I get the need for proper cooling, but I almost couldn't fit it in the case. Read below for more details. I can't use the actual name of the game in the review because - UNACCEPTABLE WORDS USED
Overall Review: System - MB - ASUS TUF GAMING B550-PLUS A CPU - AMD Ryzen 5 5600X PSU - CORSAIR HX Series HX750 CP-9020137-NA 750 W Ram - G.SKILL TridentZ RGB Series 32GB (2 x 16GB) Case - Cooler Master HAF XB EVO Display - MSI Optix MAG27CQ 27" 2560x1440 144Hz Old GPU - EVGA 1080TI FTW with Water block ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Case Max GPU Length 334 mm XFX 7900 XT Length 344 mm Uh oh... I didn't measure right. I had to modify the case chassis. I removed one of the front fans, cut and bent down the tab where the fan mounted. it's tight, but it works. I was nervous at first.
Pros: 1440p Ultra-wide Red Dead 2, 110-150 FPS all settings on ultra. GPU Junc Temps 50c - 65c max load. Overclock GPU junc temps 60c-70c. XFX manufacturing and cooling is top notch. Plenty of room to overclock, currently pulling around 2950 to 3000 Mhz steady overclocks. Card is GOLD, beats my RTX 4080 in FPS and Cooling at 1440p. Not sure for 4k, do not own or game on a 4k monitor.
Overall Review: Solid card. Excellent cooling. Good price compared to NVIDIA competitors. Extremely happy with this purchase. AMD color and lightning in RD2 is just gorgeous.
Pros: - Awesome rasterized 1440p performance. You can check all the usual sources for more detailed reviews, but for where I'm gaming (1440p 144Hz), I'm absolutey thrilled. - Massively over-engineered thermal solution. Even with maxed-out power draw, pulling 400W, I've got the fans set for 40% max speed; the card tops out in the low 60s, with a hotspot temp in the mid 70s. With my case (Fractal Torrent), the fans are audible at this speed, but not overwhelmingly so. In a more noise-focused case, they'd likely be even less noticeable. - The included support bracket is pretty substantial, and definitely appreciated.
Cons: - While the reference 7900 XT is a fairly moderately-sized dual slot design, this card is, to use the industry term, "heckin' HEFTY." 34.4cm L x 12.8cm W (13.5" x 5.04") and triple-slot. Make extra sure that you've got enough room in your case before buying, and don't try to vertically mount unless you've got some seriously good breathing room between this thing and your front panel. I'd also imagine that some kind of support brace is effectively mandatory, so if you don't use the included one, have another plan ready. - As of this writing (19 Jan 2023), the drivers still have some weird quirks with high refresh rate monitors and idle power usage; this is a known issue that AMD is addressing, but I want to share my specific observations. I've got two monitors, a 1440p 144Hz primary and a 1080p 75Hz secondary. Running both monitors at their full refresh rates, my idle power consumption (as reported in Adrenalin) sits around 100W, and the card has to spin up the fans from idle for a little bit every few minutes. By just dropping my secondary from 75Hz to 60Hz, that cuts in half, to around 50W, and the idle fan stop stays in effect. I know AMD has something of a history with quirky graphics drivers, and like I said before it's on their fix list, but right now it's definitely an annoyance. - For a $900 card, the aesthetics feel... middling? The headsink and backplate are clean and well constructed, and the styling isn't repulsive by any means. But for a price that just a few years ago would fetch you the next best thing to a Titan, the looks straddle the line between "utilitarian" and "plain." This is absolutely nitpicking, but if you're buying this card, I'd imagine your system as a whole is coming in around or above USD $2000. I'm allowed to expect something pretty at that price point.
Overall Review: My faithful 1080Ti decided to join the New Years fireworks this year, and left me needing something good in a hurry. Last gen is already being phased out; the 4090 is more than I care to spend; the 4080 is, in my opinion, an unabashed cash grab; the 4070Ti is effectively the same cost as AMD's options but with worse performance; and the 7900 XTX is out of stock. I know that the 7900 XT wasn't exactly the darling card for reviewers, and it's still frustratingly expensive compared to previous generations. But for what I need it to do, the performance is impressive, and the availability is reliable. For the XFX SPEEDSTER MERC310 specifically, if you've got enough room in your case to fit it, I'm happy with the cooling solution they've implemented. I've been using open loop water cooling setups for the better part of the last decade, so I'm not totally sure what "good" temperatures are on air anymore, and even the best air-cooled graphics card is going to lose to a well engineered water loop. But though they're audible, the fans aren't whiny or distracting, and I don't hear any other unwanted noises coming from the card while in use. I'd rather have the extra noise and thermal headroom available and not need it, than have to settle for an unpleasant sound environment for anyone unfortunate enough to be in the room while I'm gaming. It's performing well, and it's priced understandably. Short of nVidia deciding to cut the 4080 pricing by about a quarter, I don't see myself regretting this purchase any time soon.
Pros: For having three fans, I cant hear a thing. The bracket bar was useful. Always love when XFX lights up its logo.
Cons: Had to remove the middle fan in my case for the card to fit. No really a con, I just need a bigger case.
Overall Review: I play Overwatch, Red Dead 2 and World of Warcraft. I didnt know my FPS could get so high.
Pros: - Great for 1440p and 4K gaming. - The card is really cool even in the most demanding games. - works great with just 750 PSU
Cons: - The fans work very hard to keep the card cool. On the louder side
Overall Review: Highly recommended, despite the relatively expensive prices you still get great value for money
Pros: A lot of head room to OC
Cons: Big and Long (lol)
Overall Review: I must say this card is a BEAST. I play at 1440p COD MW2 and I'm steady 200+ frames most setttings on High. Time Spy hit the 25067(not extreme). A lot of head room for performance. For the current price, it's a steal.
Pros: - Best cooler on any modern GPU (check Guru3D's results) - Higher power limit than other 2X 8-pin 7900 XT cards (400W max on this model) - 20GB VRAM allows for highest-resolution textures, modding, and future games (cards with less than 12GB VRAM are struggling with new games today) - Incredible overclocking potential, 12-30% performance gains, depending on the game or benchmark - Quiet fans, once you set a proper fan curve (thermals are still fine, even with a full load while overclocked)
Cons: - Default fan curve is poor: the card can get loud at defaults (but once tuned, you barely hear it while gaming, check Guru3D's findings) - Poor documentation: XFX doesn't list which of the DP connectors is 1.4 (most listings incorrectly show 3X DP 2.1, but XFX says it's 2X DP 2.1 and 1X DP 1.4, yet no diagram exists to show you which is 1.4), nor do they show you which BIOS is loaded using the switch on the card (the FAQ documentation on the site is for older cards, and appears to be the opposite for their 7000-series cards)
Overall Review: This is my first Radeon card and I purchased it in January, since I couldn't get an XTX. I've been very surprised at how well it performs, and the overclocking is also better than expected. I would suggest ignoring the extreme negativity about the 7900 XT, as most of those comments are related to the reference cards, which don't have this XFX card's amazing cooler or OC potential. Beyond that, most people were crying about the price, but this XFX card has been selling for less than MSRP for over 2 months ($820 at the time of writing), while the XTX version is over $200 more expensive. With this 7900 XT, I'm currently scoring over 30100 on the "graphics" portion of Time Spy (26K overall score, aka "legendary"), which is better than most 4070 Ti and 4080 cards, on-par with many XTX cards, and on the heels of some reference 4090 cards (which cost twice as much). Every game I've tested has run very smoothly on my 4K 144Hz monitor. I have tested some nVidia-optimized ray tracing titles such as Control and Bright Memory Infinite, and I can get 90-137 FPS with a 2K render resolution on those titles, with all other settings maxed out. Every other game I'm playing is at 4K with all maxed settings, and sometimes even a Reshade overlay to add even more GPU load. It has all been running fine. I do not need to run with a max overclock or power limit to achieve these results, I usually only use a 7% power increase with an undervolt applied. The Radeon software allows for per-game overclock profiles, so you can set different clock, memory, undervolt, and power limits per-game. I love not having to use 4+ different pieces of software to manage my video card settings. One of the biggest advantages of the 7900 XT over other cards in its class, is the 20GB VRAM. When modding games, running 4K, or using VR, I've actually consumed 16-19.3 GB of VRAM, which wouldn't be possible on other cards at this price point. High-resolution textures eat up a lot of VRAM, but people don't consider this when purchasing a card. I would hate to limit my modding potential, or have to lower the texture quality, simply because of VRAM exhaustion. Texture quality is one of the most graphically-rewarding settings, and often makes a bigger impact to the overall look of the game, than ray tracing. If your textures are low-res and ugly, giving them reflections and shadows won't make them become pretty. You can also see that on some modern games, that when the VRAM cap is reached, performance drops like a rock, even if the GPU could handle more. Don't limit your VRAM today, if you're planning on using your GPU for a few years. If you want to solve the "high idle power draw with high refresh rate displays" known issue right now, just turn on PCI-E LSPM/ASPM L0+L1 (aka 1.1 and 1.2) in your BIOS (if it's not already enabled), and then set the PCI-E LSPM to "maximum power savings" in the Windows power plan. This should cut your power draw in half, without impacting performance (no change to my benchmark scores or game performance).
