Reviews and Problems with MSI R9 270X HAWK

Showing 1-6 of 6
Overall 9


16 October 2013
  • Summary: All testing for this review was done with an updated BIOS provided by MSI. It can be found AMD's new Radeon R9 270X is essentially a rebranded HD 7870 GHz Edition running higher clock speeds, but with the same features otherwise. MSI has taken this proven concept and slapped their latest TwinFrozr IV cooler onto it, overclocking the card by an extra 90 MHz. As result, we see the R9 270 HAWK 4% faster than the reference R9 270X, which let the card beat the HD 7950 by 2%.
  • Pros: Overclocked out of the box, Extremely quiet in both idle and load, Software voltage control possible, Dual BIOS, Voltage measurement points, Backplate included, Native full-size HDMI and DisplayPort, Up to four active outputs
  • Cons: Very high multi-monitor and Blu-ray power consumption, Relatively big price increase over reference design

MSI Radeon R9 270X Hawk Edition Video Card Review

  • Summary: Synthetics - The MSI 270 X Hawk improves in performance when compared to its predecessor, the HD 7870, and with its factory OC, it further increases performance when compared to a reference designed R9 270X. DirectX 11 - As DirectX 11 games evolve, they require increased memory and compute power. The Hawk was able to produce acceptable playable frame rates where the HD7870 could not.
  • Cons: Reference Board Design – No, Reference Fan - No, Aftermarket Board Design - Yes, Aftermarket Cooling - Yes, Aftermarket Power Control - Yes, Factory OC - Yes

  • Summary: Una vez pasadas todas las pruebas correspondientes llegamos a las conclusiones de esta MSI R9 270X Hawk . Como hemos podido observar desde el primer momento esta no es una tarjeta cualquiera, y es que a pesar de que se encuentra en el rango de la gama baja-media (dentro del segmento gamer, claro está), MSI ha hecho de este modelo un modelo muy atractivo por características propias de tarjetas de gama alta.
  • Pros: Rendimiento competitivo, Diseño y estética muy cuidados., Nivel sonoro excelente., Buenas temperaturas., Dual BIOS., Overclock de serie.
  • Cons: Una rebaja le vendría genial., No se incluye cable Crossfire.

  • Summary: Pour commencer, que peut-on dire à part, oui cette R9 270X est une bonne HD 7870, mais voilà on est clairement face à du rebadgage, et certains consommateurs se sentiront lésés face à une telle attitude de copier/coller.
  • Pros: Bonnes performances, Un design plein de charme
  • Cons: Une HD 7870, Le prix qui en découle n'est pas à sa place
