In this ever-blossoming technology industry there are smaller companies that are often overshadowed by their behemoth competitors. There are many reasons why this occurs but one of the most common assumptions is that the smaller company is lower quality. The thinking has been that the smaller guy can’t make a product as well as the bigger guy. VisionTek has been striving to prove that assumption to be false. They believe they can be a smaller company yet still offer quality and value. VisionTek sent us the new Radeon R9-280X AMD based GPU to see how well their promise holds up. We will take a moment to learn about VisionTek before we put the R9-280X through some tests.
