XFX GeForce GTX 260 Review


Today we examine XFX's take on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260. In particular the XFX GX-260N-ADF9, which is strictly following the reference guidelines set by NVIDIA for both card design and GPU clock speed

Nvidia GTX-260 Core 216 VS ATI 4870 1GB 5 Game Shootout -


Asus has always been one of the computer industry's leading innovators, being the first to field many new ideas and support new platforms. The introduction of Core i7 is no exception. Asus had initial offerings of X58 Core i7 motherboards in production...

Since we are in a 5 Game shootout for the perfect GPU for the season's hottest titles we need to treat our conclusion a little differently. We're going to go by game individually, rather than lump it into one generic conclusion.

For every single gamer out there, getting the most performance out of their video card is vital for a pleasant gaming experience. That is probably why the most expensive hardware component hiding inside the case is, more often than not, the graphics...

Performance ; Free game ; Overclocking

Unpredictable scaling ; Temperatures

This pair of GTX260s coming from XFX is nothing short of impressive. They feature an awesome looking heatsink and the bundle it comes with is all you need to get started - a couple adapters as well as the award winning Call of Duty 4. This is also the...

REVIEWS: XFX GeForce GTX 260 XXX Edition (24th June 2008)


We look at our first GTX 260, and we've done it the right way. Bypassing the stock model, we go straight to the XXX.

I do have to say that it's surprising to see just how close the GTX 260 performs to the GTX 280 in resolutions up to 2560 x 1600. Only at 2560 x 1600 does the GTX 280 begin to show clear signs of a performance increase. Considering the price of the GTX...

Digital-Daily: XFX GeForce GTX 260 Black Edition in the SLI mode | Video


The video memory chips used in XFX GeForce GTX 260 Black Edition are identical to those used in GeForce GTX 280. Their access time is 0.8 ns, which is equivalent to the effective clock speed 2400 MHz. Engineers at XFX have almost reached this value...

XFX GeForce GTX 260 Black Edition video cards have proved to be good candidates for video cards to be merged into a SLI. Quite powerful due to additional functional units included into only the updated versions of GeForce GTX 260, these video cards...

XFX GX260XADJC GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card


Knew I was getting a big card and XFX has always been a great company to work with. Haven't had this card give me any troubles.

Runs my games at high-full settings without too much complaint. L4D1, L4D2, HL2, Fallout 3, etc

It's big and blocks off half the computer's airflow, so an Antec 300 with a bunch of 120s really helps with that. Size can also make putting hard drives in a fun experience

XFX lifetime Warranty is Bull


If XFX wants to resolve this before I make this post everywhere, refer to ticket number 319231.

Good card does work as advertised

I have purchased cards From XFX due to the double lifetime warranty. One of my two GTX 260's in SLI died and brought my entire system down. Five weeks later i received an ATI HD 4870. I wrote back three day ago asking what they expected me to do with...

Matches my AMD Phenom II X4 955 w/1280x1024 resolution to play Bad Company 2 on high settings. Medium for Multiplayer though, frame rates over beauty.

Worked perfectly right out of the box ; A lot quieter than I expected

A monster of a card. Make sure you have the room. It is about 11 inches

Great Card


Runs quite hot compared to other cards that I'm used to. ~74C when playing Crysis or Left 4 Dead 2. Did some research to determine it's safe up to 105C at the very most.

Very nice card. Runs almost anything I can throw at it. Ran Crysis on high. Choked on Shattered Horizon, but was to be expected. Running it on a 550 watt power supply with a

Harnessing the power of second generation unified architecture, SLI technology and top-of-the-line DirectX 10 support, an in-your-face experience, delivered in blazing fast frame rates, is yours. Real life has never been this realistic.
