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 an even though we use the best fan's on the market it's performance will decrease overtime. 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.
Enhances thermal efficiency by 40%
The XFX RX RS 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%.
Protects your GPU while providing additional cooling overall
GPUs are one of the most important, complex and delicate pieces 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.
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.
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.
The next generation graphics API from Khronos.
Vulkan is the new generation, open standard API for high-efficiency access to graphics and compute on modern GPUs. This ground-up design, previously referred to as the Next Generation OpenGL Initiative, provides applications direct control over GPU acceleration for maximized performance and predictability.
AMD FreeSync Technology
No stuttering. No tearing. Just gaming. Gaming shouldn’t be a choice between choppy gameplay and high performance. With XFX Radeon™ Series graphics and FreeSync technology, it doesn’t have to be. Transform the most demanding games into a liquid-smooth, artifact-free, 4K cinematic experience with the highest performance at virtually any frame rate. FreeSync works at the speed of your game for incredible responsiveness and uncompromising smoothness. Every gamer deserves perfectly smooth gameplay and peak performance. Unlike the competing technology, you don’t have to choose with FreeSync technology.
Microsoft Windows 10 and DirectX 12 Optimized for gaming performance
New features and functions bring new computing experiences to life with AMD Radeon™ graphics on the Windows® 10 platform. Take your gaming further with XBOX ONE on Windows. Play and connect with your games and friends. Everywhere.
Microsoft’s new technology enables great performance and dramatically improved GPU and CPU multiprocessing and multithreading performance thanks to Async Shaders and Multi-threaded Command Buffer Recording for more efficient rendering of richer and more complex scenes.
Unprecedented efficiency on nextgen GPUs.
Enjoy whisper quiet gaming with the revolutionary Polaris architecture. Combining the latest FinFET 14 process technology and AMD’s advanced power, gating and clocking technologies, you’ll enjoy dramatically cool and quiet gaming. The FinFet 14 process technology puts more transistors in less space, enabling dramatic increases in processing power and power efficiency helping to provide better processor performance while using less power and enabling better transistor efficiency than previous generation technology.
The Ultimate Compute Architecture with Multiple GPU Scaling
Discover the direct-to-the GPU performance advantage of Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture, enabling stunning detail and dynamic gaming, a richer and more immersive VR experience, with exceptional graphics performance and low power consumption. 4th generation Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture features asynchronous shaders and an enhanced geometry engine, so you can enjoy exceptionally smooth gameplay on the latest DirectX® 12 and Vulkan™ titles.
AMD CrossFire technology lets you connect multiple graphics cards to amplify your system’s graphics processing capability including enhancements that set a new standard of consistent and smooth gameplay.
Multidisplay technology for gaming, productivity and entertainment.
Expand your territory and customize your field of vision. Connect up to six displays on a single GPU for dynamic, panoramic multi-screen gaming. You’ll get an expansive experience that’s truly out of sight. (additional displays may require the use of MST hub).
Giving you the performance you have come to expect from XFX.
Overclocking your card to it's peak performance potential is not an easy task but a stock card is simply underutilizing your graphics card's full potential. Luckily for you, we have factory overclocked the RS at the BIOS level and have fine tuned it for optimal gaming performance. Our state-of-the art equipment and testing labs ensure that your card reaches it's maximum performance level safely and optimally.
XFX's 3 Year Warranty
Giving you the performance you have come to expect from XFX.
Even though we trust that our high quality products will continue working at peak performance well beyond your use of it, we want to put our word behind that promise. That is why we offer our 3 + 2 Year Warranty with this series of graphics cards. This means that your product is protected by a 3 year limited hardware warranty on manufacturing defects of anything on the card.
