Summary: Coming in at $219.99 at the time of writing, the MSI R9 270 2GB Gaming OC carries with it a slight premium over the base $199.99 price that we see a couple of models hit at. However, we're always happy to pay a slight premium for an MSI product.
Summary: Final Thoughts
First off let me say that this is in no way a comparative review. Unfortunately we did not have any other R9 270’s on hand to test this card against. All of the cards that are in the testing results all cost over $100 over this card, so we really cannot tell you if this card performs...
Summary: The R9 270X 2GB starts at $199.99 with a lot of brands coming in at around the same price level. With that said though, we've got a number of companies who offer cards at a slightly higher price due to a stronger overclock or a much higher quality cooler.
Summary: It is no secret that most modern video cards with an HDMI output also provide audio. This audio is digital in nature and usually sent across the wire so it can be interpreted by the television, monitor, or whatever you have plugged in.
Pros: Twin Frozr IV Cooler, Custom PCB Design, Factory Overclocked, Cool and Quiet Operation, Crossfire Support, MSI Gaming App
Cons: No fancy LED lights, Fans are quite loud under manual control, Limited overclocking frequency
Summary: The gaming edition R9-270X from MSI is impressive. See, w
ith the R9-270X being a beefed up Radeon HD 7870 I was inclined to state that it is just another boring refresh, however the more I test these cards the more I start to like them.
Summary: The Radeon R9 270X GAMING (OC Edition) Graphics Card is another great looking Card from MSI, they really seem to have nailed it with the current range of gaming cards. Not only does the card look good it performs pretty good too, especially when you consider the current street price of around £170.
Summary: At first glance, the 270 might seem a relatively unexciting addition. Close to the 270X in many respects, but just a little slower, can it really offer anything? Well, yes, actually. The price is juicier, and the performance surprisingly upbeat.
Summary: 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.
