Honestly, I just don't see why they refuse to bring back the XFX 290 black cards. Beautiful design.

They were really classy. GPUs often look tacky, like they're trying really hard to cater to the 'RGB crowd'. But the XFX Black was like a vintage car.

XFX is like a trip down memory lane for me.
remember the good old days when these guys were battling it out with PNY and BFG for the top spot in gpus. You would choose a Zotac over an Asus or MSI back then.

Agreed though, The DD cooler looked like it meant business

That's a great description on that design. Classy and Vintage 👌

Hmm it was all going so well.

Up close it looks like cheap tacky plastic. And those two "things" each side of the XFX logo on the side? which way do I slide them?

It looks like the interior of a 80s Japanese car ffs. I quite like the shape. Like, just the overall shape. It would look kinda nice not being a straight slab. Everything else is just wrong.

If I designed that I would stand in town with a "Slap Me Please" Tshirt on.

My favorite XFX card was the 7970 GHZ triple fan design, like an early version of Radeon VII. Very nice.
But these years since have been horrendous, what's going on at XFX?!

That's exactly what I thought. Look at the xfx 7990,it looks almost the same.
Truth be told xfx seem to have been in decline since nvidia cut them off.
Shame they used to be the go to brand for gpus
