5 out of 5 eggsStrong 1080p performance for the money

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-4GD5 Radeon R9 270X 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

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

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-4GD5 Radeon R9 270X 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video 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!

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-4GD5 Radeon R9 270X 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

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
.

4 out of 5 eggsASUS DirectCU II Review

This review is from: ASUS DirectCU II R9270X-DC2T-4GD5 Radeon R9 270X 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card

Pros: - Ultra graphics setting on every game
- High memory
- 3.0 Ready
- Price

Cons: - Very large in size.
- Occasional Micro Stutter
- Lots of heat

Other Thoughts: I think its a great graphics card in comparison to other graphics cards on the "same level". I run all my games on ultra settings just fine. However i dislike the massive size of the card and i highly dislike the placement of the power connectors. Its right next to the heat dissipation bars and your power wires will generally come close to touching the bars.

I almost bought a 2nd one.
