ahh it is a typo. basically asus 280x got loads of cards with artifact problems, even their top of the line premium matrix cards. R9280X-DC2T-3GD5 this is my card. I have zero clue or info on their 280 cards. I only did research on the card I bought. you should just google asus 280 artifact problems and read up. make sure it is 280 and not 280x. if google doesn't turn anything, then you are safe to buy one? I would still stay away. anything to raise your chance of getting a working card when you get it.
