AMD R9 270X Review

Metro : 2033 and Last Light

AMD R9 270X Review

Metro 2033

Still the most frustrating title since the dark days of Crysis Warhead, Metro 2033 isn't too bad at all on the 270X, managing to match the 40FPS from the much more expensive GTX770. 

Metro Last Light

So far Last Light has been a depressing demonstration of poor optimisation, and so it continues with the R9 270X. 17 FPS is appalling, and to reach single digits in 2560x1440 is ridiculous. However, we're almost certain this is entirely the fault of 4A Games who must have Quad-SLI GTX Titans in their QA rig.

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.Quote

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

Good review.Quote

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.Quote

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