4 out of 5 eggsSolid card, good buy.

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Powerful card
Plenty of output
Sturdy build quality, including fans.
The 'DirectCU' heat pipe is aesthetically pleasing, not sure how much actual benefit it adds

Cons: Wasn't as powerful as I expected it to be, but it's a budget-friendly card.
Fans are a litle loud under load, I was hoping for some quieter fans.
Display drivers on 8.1 seem a little buddy, occasional BSOD when exiting sleep mode.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this card as an upgrade form a 6870, and was expecting more performance than I actually got out of it. Still a solid upgrade for a decent price. If I had to purchase over again, I would have gone for a 280x and more than 2GB of VRAM, but at the time this was the top of my GPU budget.

Overall, a great card for the price!

5 out of 5 eggs

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: I put this card in an entirely new intel system and it has performed incredibly well.

I previously owned an ASUS Radeon 6850 card which also performed well, and the R9 270X was a big upgrade.

All the games I play and applications I use have never had any performance issues related to this card. On top of this, I tested out running FRAPS alongside running games and it still performed beautifully never dropping below 60 FPS and never had any screen tearing.

Examples of programs I run: League of Legends, Path of Exile, Warcraft III, Diablo III, One Finger Death Punch.

Also, this card has been running very cool (under load barley approaching 70 C). I don't have any external cooling or liquid cooling for the card, it is just cooled by the stock installation.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: This card is large, probably best to check your dimensions before purchasing. I had to remove one HDD bay to fit this into a full tower case. However, I do not think this is a problem with the card, rather the full tower I have is on the smaller end.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Awesome

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Although I am able to max it out in games (Skyrim on top of a mountain during a blizzard) this card is able to run all fairly recent games at 1080p and the highest resolution that they offer while the frame-rate never drops below 30 fps in the worst of times. This thing has never had any issue with heat (always has stayed under 70° even while staying on almost 24hrs of continuous gaming) and when needed; the GPU Tweak software that comes included makes it easy for you to boost up the clock and squeeze a wee bit of more performance out of it. Examples of the games I commonly play are: Civ 5, Far Cry 3, Team Fortress 2, Starcraft II, Surgeon Simulator, Dota 2, Car Mechanic Simulator, and Darksiders I and II.

Cons: None! The only hiccup I have ever had with it was because of user error.

Other Thoughts: Great buy for those first building a gaming rig!

5 out of 5 eggsFast and cold

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Fast enough for my purposes.
One of the best air coolers for graphics cards.

Cons: None specific to the card.

Other Thoughts: Driver installing and updating isn't as good as nvidia. But that's not an issue with this card in particular.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS R9 270x

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Looks pretty slick, easy to install, GPU Tweak software is fairly nice.The fans are fairly quiet even under load.

Cons: Although not a con for me, this card is pretty big and may not fit in every case, just make sure to check your dimensions.

Other Thoughts: Great card, have not messed with overclock too much other than to see if GPU tweak worked and I got it up 5-6% without much change in temps at all. Running most things at high-ultra settings with 60+fps with my fx-8350 especially games that can take advantage of Mantle. Got this with a great deal and rebate and so far I am impressed and would reccommend!

5 out of 5 eggsSo Far, So Good.

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Looks cool. Play's games at high frame rates at an affordable price. I'm not a big gamer but I tried out Skyrim and automatically set my system using this card on Ultra settings.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I got it for under 200 bucks and so far it's working fine and performing every bit as good as I expected.

It seems to work fine with both Windows 7 and Linux Mint 17.

No regrets so far on this purchasing this graphics card.

I doubt you'll see much difference between this card and anything else until you move up into the 300 dollar price range.

5 out of 5 eggsLove

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Quick and easy set up easy to over clock (can now play games at full potential

Cons: Download the drivers was probably the longest process of the entire thing (not too long at all)

Other Thoughts: This GPU was probably one of the est purchases I've ever made for my desktop (well ok the CPU was) It's better then any GPU I have seen in person (i can't imagine how the 295x runs maybe soon it will be in my budget!)

2 out of 5 eggsWorked perfectly, until....

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Works(Worked) great.
High FPS on all games thrown at it (Fallout: New Vegas, Borderlands 2, Murdered: Soul Suspect, Thief. Just to name a few) always over 40 FPS most the time between 60-100.
Ran every game i played at 1080p on ultra/very high settings.
Overall i was extremely pleased with this card. until...

Cons: After about 5-6 days of having this card in my brand new mobo, it was running just fine and dandy with up-to-date beta drivers from AMD. earlier today 22-6-2014 i started up Tropico 4 and the game crashed and my computer blue screened. since then i have been trying for hours upon hours to get my gpu to work because i really don't have the time and\or money to send it in and get a new card sent back. The card, with up-to-date drivers installed will boot into a black screen on windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. after i reset my computer and boot into safe mode i can roll back th drivers so it show up as a vga display device and reboot into windows with no problem. there i can uninstall the amd drivers and reinstall them. when the catalyst program asks me to reboot, i comply, and my computer boots into a black screen
rinse and repeat.
i am at a loss right now. im still hoping that it's just faulty drivers or that it can be fixed without being sent back to ASUS.
My current system setup is:
CPU: AMD 8350, 8 core, 4.0 GHz. underclocked to 3.4GHz
GPU: Obviously ASUS DirectCU II AMD R9 270x 2GB GDDR5
Mobo: ASRock 970 Extreme3 R2.0
PSU: Corsair 600M 600 Watt Power supply
RAM: PNY 4GB (1x4GB) DDR3-1333
My current display is a 32" Vizio Flat Screen LCD TV running at 1080p via HDMI

Other Thoughts: This is a well designed card. It ran well, and mine never hit temperatures of over 120 degrees F. (49 degrees C).
If the card hadn't have failed, I would have gave it a 5 egg review.

5 out of 5 eggsLike a champ!

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: Great bang for the buck
Easy to install and setup
Drivers and software from AMD work great and make everything easy!
takes well to OC, not gotten over 60*C

Cons: Not as high quality as I was hoping for, but the game is PRE-Alpha

Other Thoughts: I bought this card for use for the next 2 or so year waiting on Star Citizen to come out. The hanger module is not AS high quality as I had hopped, but looks great still. The Arena Commander module is great! I get 40+FPS in all modes on max settings. I really do think I will buy the 4G version and run Crossfire on it.
