The Radeon R9 270X is a mainstream priced GPU supporting DirectX 11.2 along with AMD’s Mantle. It uses the 28nm design, packs 1280 SPU’s, 80 TAU’s and 32 ROP’s. Last but not least, the R9 270X comes with 2GB of RAM, though 4GB will be an option on some cards despite being pointless for this GPU.

Getting to the results we find that on average the Radeon R9 270X was 6% faster than the Radeon HD 7870, since its core is overclocked by 5% with 17% faster memory this makes sense. Compared to Nvidia’s offerings, the Radeon R9 270X faces the GeForce GTX 660 ($200), the R9 270X will be around $20 more than most GTX 660 cards.

AMD's policy of retooling old hardware as new chips is paying dividends. The 280X is a hard card to beat at its price-point. The 270X, too, is a rather good card for the money, and not that far behind the 280X. Having said that, the latter does have a superior memory configuration...

AMD's Radeon R9 270X is an interesting card, and quite the value @ its $200 price point. That value would be far more pronounced had NVIDIA not recently dropped the pricing on its GTX 660 series (which, of course, was to be expected). At this point in...

If you're looking to spend around the $200 mark, it's fairly safe to say that this is more than likely what you are going to be looking at. The only other question we have now is what happens if you want to spend more? Well, keep an eye out for a review on the new Radeon R9 280X 3GB soon.

Then there is the 12% faster GTX 760, but with its $250 price point, it's clearly out of reach of the R9 270X. Still, I think a more reasonable price for R9 270X would be around $180 or so—maybe we'll see that in the near future. The higher MSRP could also give board partners more room to release their custom designs without any large price increases.

“What's in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet;” AMD's GCN architecture debuted almost two years ago in the Tahiti GPU. I've mentioned this before, but I paid $550 each for two Radeon HD 7970s to do my own CrossFire...

Видеокарта AMD R9 270X является очень любопытным продуктом. По сути, это слегка разогнанная HD 7870. Производительность хорошая, но для разрешения 1920 х 1080 не всегда достаточная, если говорить о максимальных настройках со сглаживанием. Конечно,...
