Ultimate Cooling

DirectCU II with SSU Architecture

20% Cooler, 3X Quieter
ASUS graphics card engineering leads the industry once again with the introduction of DirectCU II SSU thermal design. Comprising two "S" shapes and one "U" shape, the new heatpipes are precision crafted for optimal efficiency and heat transference. They are also nickel-plated to minimize oxidization, with their mid-section now placed directly over the GPU die. This design shortens heat transfer travel to lower thermal resistance and create bi-directional flow for up to twice the cooling capacity in the same space as that required by existing graphics card cooler designs. High-conductivity copper used in heatpipe formulation creates tube-like vapor chambers, moving heat to a large aluminum heatsink that features extended fins for multiple points of dissipation. The assembly is further chilled by two high performance but carefully-tuned and sound-dampened fans for faster and quieter cooling.

Ultimate Stability

DIGI+ VRM with Super Alloy Power

30% less power noise and 2.5X greater durability
Acclaimed DIGI+ VRM has been applied via a 8-phase power design that uses digital voltage regulators to minimize power noise by 30%, enhance power efficiency by 15%, widen voltage modulation tolerance, and improve overall stability and longevity by 2.5 times over reference.

5 out of 5 eggsasus r9270x 4gb

Pros: quiet and powerful, broke it in with advanced warfare for a couple hours at high settings, never heard the fans go high and was putting out 95fps. This card rocks!!! nice work Asus!...

Cons: None....big but expected that

Other Thoughts: if you have a window case it looks awesome with the heat pipes, looks like the card has headers!!

4 out of 5 eggsreally fast, minor issue

Pros: Golly gee willickers... this thing is quick. Handles every game 60fps
With a 4690 cpu it runs gtav on all high settings at 60 fps.

Cons: I have this minor screen flicker every now again, its just slightly annoying. I tried reseating it in the pci slot a couple of times didnt seem to fix it. so I'm not sure what is causing it.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus R9270X-DC2T-4GD Radeon R9 270X

Pros: Blown away the first time I put settings at max levels on my favorite game. Purchased for multiple screens connections. I multibox WOW on 5 screen and it takes it no problem. Never was able to stress it until it blew off on me after 3 days of use.

Cons: Died on me after 3 days. I figure I hit a bad one. It happens. It's huge, like so many says, do your homework before you buy to see if it fits in your box.

Other Thoughts: Was truly amazed on Newegg service on the RMA and replacement already on its way after only 5 days.

5 out of 5 eggsStrong 1080p performance for the money

Pros: - Strong 1080p performance.
- 4GB Memory is more than enough for most games and more.
- A propor 256 bit bus. Come on, Nvidia...
- Easily overclockable to <5% on memory and core clock. I've seem temps above 60c and it's stable.
- Runs cool with no alterations, including thermal paste, at a 26c idle (OC).
- Doesn't seem noisy.
- 2 big fans + large heatsink.

Cons: - Whine: AMD CCC (catalyst control center) is a little underwhelming. Also, I've experienced low fan speeds (~20%) that were letting the temps get a little high. I manually control the fan speed now (~50%). This might have been from using CCC to overclock; it seemed to have poor control over the fans on auto. Catalyst 14.12 doesn't seem to report power info.

- only 1 HDMI port.

- It's a big card, you know the drill. Check that case.

Other Thoughts: Price to performance ratio is hard to beat. Dual Slot, large, and fairly heavy. I would recommend to any budget minded enthusiast. Crossfire is probably great.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: SO far this card is killer. I look for a lot of reviews on cards running World of Warcraft but cannot find any. My system Gigabyte 990FX 8GB AMD 1866 RAM 1000W power supply and Radeon R9 4GB running wow in most areas between 70 and 100+ FPS and have seen it at over 200 running Ultra settings. Cant wait to get a second one.

Cons: Non so far

Other Thoughts: Buy it Buy it now but save me one

5 out of 5 eggsexcellent starter!

Pros: It handles well for it's speed processing, and it handles much with it's Ram and support for display.

Keep in mind that these cards keep focus on low standard requirements for AA techniques on gaming so SMAA and FMAA work well and so does MSAAx2.

It can play things on MAX Or basically Ultra to max rendering only on

1020-1200+ resolution IN BETWEEN

but in drawn resolution ingames and textures support 4k but not the display of the screen so keep that in mind.

1080p still looks pretty with 4k ingame reslution

It's mantel support will be used highly in future games so that it will overlap lot of GPU's with this format, making this the top gaming first build card for price and power with support.

farcry 4 worked on Very Ultra and SMAA support.
it had Ambient Occlusion set to HBAO+
and supported high FoV.

Cons: Abolute to non for what it can do on it's price

fairness for powerindeed
