AMD R9 270X Review

Crysis 3

Obviously if you're buying a midrange GPU you should run at midrange settings, so with the knowledge that we maintain the maximum possible image quality it's clear that the 270X isn't enough graphics card for Crysis 3. The GTX760 is 50% better and even the lowly GTX650Ti matches its mere 20FPS.

Far Cry 3

The gap between the GTX760 and the R9 270X tightens in Far Cry 3. Despite it only pushing around 30FPS, the pace of the game is such that it's smooth in all but the most explosive outpost battles, although moving up to 2560 taxes it too much.

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.
