worked great, at first..
9 February 2016
Summary: I will be replacing this card, and sending it in for warranty repair. upon receiving the replacement, I will either sell it, or throw it in a different PC or keep as a spare. not having sound on a new build sucks!
Summary: This R9 270x is an absolute workhorse in every sense of the word. Hold on tight. This card comes in standard at 1060/1425 clock speeds. A lot of people shrug PowerColor off as an offbrand or sub-par compared to bigger names like XFX and MSI. They're wrong. Dead wrong.
Pros: -Fantastic cooler. -Shroud is metal, not plastic -Build quality is top notch
Cons: -Card is not quite prepared for gaming over 1080p -Only has a 2GB version
Summary: power color has lost a life long PC enthusiast customer. from now on I will avoid their products. I suggest other people reading this do the same, apparently power color is known online for low quality products that don't work. learn from my experience and don't buy power color.
Pros: GREAT PRICE... to good to be any good, unfortunately =(
Cons: worked great for about 2 weeks then it started giving me random game crashes and freezes. contacted power color RMA department and sent in my card, got it back in a week and a half and same problem they did not fix anything. I'm already running my system with another graphics card and i have no p...
Summary: I hope PowerColor support sees this review so I can get the RMA process started.
Pros: This was a great entry level gamer card, it played most everything at high settings.
Cons: Not sure what happened, but it just stopped working. I had to resort to onboard Intel HD GFX. Also the card is out of NEs return warranty. And when I try to register at PowerColors site to start the RMA process, it does not let me complete Registration .. "Please agree the permission" .. I DID CH...
Cons: started out good the first week and then began to BSOD for no reason , over the course of one month computer crashes and total computer freeze became more common until today that i write this review because i just had it freeze up on me 4 times today two during game play and two more just surfing...
Summary: Was hesitant about buying a PowerColor graphics card, as I have always bought XFX or Sapphire AMD cards. Did alot of research on this card and finally decided to pull the trigger and buy it. The price was right, specially since my build budget was tight. I wanted decent performance and a backplate.
Pros: Great Price Nice build quality and has a great looking backplate Looks nice and love the red & black color scheme Plays games at 1080p flawlessly
Cons: None yet. Will update later, after a few months of usage.
Pros: Im impressed with the performance considering its an economical card. Im running a 29" 2560x1080 monitor and this little card runs most games on high to max settings(Titanfall, GW2, WoW, Borderlands2, etc)
Summary: Would definately recommend this card. It is kind of a bummer that ATI is generally slower with drivers than Nvidia seems to be however for the budget and handling in most games this is a perfectly fine card.
Pros: Essentially everything. Good performance handles nearly every game and application i've thrown at it with ease seemingly.
Cons: The initial Card i recieved was actually faulty. It does occasionally take some time to recognize the monitors.
Summary: Great cards for the price, I have them overclocked using MSI Afterburner: Core clock at 1140 and Memory Clock at 1500, stable. No problems running any games on max settings. Crysis series, Murdered:Soul Suspect, Farcry Series, Skyrim,
Pros: I built a custom Ibuypower in August: Stats as follows: Chimera 4-FX AMD FX 8350 OC to 4.52GHZ Asetek 550 Liquid cooling AMD Radeon R9 270X Powercolor x2 Crossfired Gskil Ripjaw 16gig 1866 Gigabyte 990FX UDA 3 Corsair 850watt gold PSU full modular and a whole bunch of other stuff
Cons: I would have liked to go with a Nvidia/Intel build but would have gone way over budget. AMD build was a better option for the price and the performance is solid. My 3D rating in Passmark is 5386, but my overall score was 3670 which is pretty bad for what I paid to have this system built.
