Quoted from Asus R9 280X DirectCU II TOP Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Asus R9 280X DirectCU II TOP reviews & previews
"We like the ASUS HD R9-280X DirectCU II TOP. All variables are right, the overall looks, the cooling, the noise levels, the factory overclock, yeah it's all good. So aside from cooling added benefits are the factory overclock, the four outputs, a quality slash top notch product."
"When all is said and done the 280X (and specifically the ASUS model) is a card which offers competitive performance now with the potential for some really interesting enhancements over time."
"The Radeon R9 280X DirectCU II Top from ASUS is a really nice piece of hardware. It features a nice factory overclocking paired with a strong power design and a very good cooling solution. But the card isn't perfect, it comes with a very high price tag, the bundle is poor and it could be quieter especially in idle. Also we have to point out that the Radeon 200 series is not currently part of the Never Settle Forever program. This may change in the future but at the moment you don't get any game for free buying a Radeon 200 series card unless the manufacturer specifies otherwise."
"Overall we can say if you go get yourself a high-end R9 280X and you want to get the maximum out of this card, then we'd recommend you to go for a custom watercooling loop and the EK-FC R9-280X-DCII is certainly doing a great job."
"Asus makes a pretty good video card. The build quality, cooler quality, and overall value and performance of these products are pretty outstanding. I have to admit that I have a soft spot in my heart for the chip formerly known as the HD 7870, now in the form of the R9 270X. That chip is downright miserly when it comes to power vs. performance. It is around the same overall performance as the GTX 760 but is a good 50 watts less in overall power consumption. The Tahiti chip powering the R9 280X has been out two years now and was the first of that generation. It still keeps chugging along and the MSRP is right where it should be."
