AMD R9 270X Review

Sleeping Dogs

You can really see the difference between the more powerful 280X and the 270X in Sleeping Dogs. 37FPS average on the AMD R9 270X isn't too bad, although we know that just dropping the AA down to 2x would make a huge difference.

Tomb Raider

We're big fans of the Tomb Raider reboot here at OC3D and you can see why AMD have it as part of their Never Settle bundle, as it performs admirably on the R9 270X. Better than an overclocked GTX760 is not bad going at all, even if the difference is slight.

Nice review, but I'm sure you can get a 7870 for less that 180 and as said in the review, it has pretty much the same performance.

Nice to see the 780 and Titan to still be king of the hill... Lets see what the 290x throws at them.

Good review.

Great review as always, the card could be a bit cheaper but its still what i consider reasonable price.

Though considering i got both my 7870 tahiti LE cards for 200 total on the used market, i would advise others to buy a used hd 7870 tahiti card or a new one if you want to stretch your pounds further.

shame they don't come with more vram. It'd be a killer for battlefield based budget-y systems if it had more vram.
