Introduction

If the GTX 280 AMP! Edition from ZOTAC wasn't enough MHz for you, we might have the card for you today. XFX is back once again, carrying with it some pretty mean speeds on the new GTX 280 XXX Edition.

The GTX, while being a very good card in the sense that it performs similar to the dual GPU 9800 GX2 for the same price, it hasn't wowed people as much as we had hoped due to the card again not feeling like a true next generation offering in the performance department.

With that said though, the new GTX 280 does carry with it some very cool technology that we haven't seen before, and certainly does have its benefits in certain fields. We want something that pushes out some serious FPS though, so that our gaming experience is better than ever.

Today we'll see what XFX has done to the card and package to make it stand out.
