A rich set of AMD innovative technologies is included, such as App Acceleration, AMD PowerTune, AMD ZeroCore, and AMD HD3D technology. With these technology advancements, you'll get more than one way to elevate your gaming experience.

This graphics card offers more with innovative MSI gaming series features such as a TWIN FROZR IV cooler, military class components, and more.

  • newegg ADVANCED TWIN FROZR IV MSI's Twin Frozr has been the industry-defining graphics card cooler. The first Twin Frozr kicked of the dual-fan trend and today MSI stays true to its dual-fan dual-slot design, where others have to resort to less effective means. The other part that the Twin Frozr cooler uses is a large aluminum fin grid array that provides a huge amount of surface area for cooling. Heat from the GPU is transferred to the fin grid array by virtue of heat pipes with MSI's special SuperPipe technology. SuperPipes transfer heat twice as fast as regular heat pipes, enabling an MSI GAMING graphics card to stay cooler than the competition. Futhermore, MSI provides all-new Airflow Control technology on the Twin Frozr. This new thermal tech leads the airflow to the heat pipe by a special deflector on the heatsink, so it can deflect more airflow to the heat pipes directly. In addtion, this exclusive heatsink design increases the area of the heatsink, so it enhances the dissipation efficiency much more.
  • newegg MILITARY CLASS COMPONENT One of the deciding factors in performance is the quality of the components used. That is why MSI only uses MIL-STD-810G certified components for its gaming cards because only these components have proven to be able to withstand the torturous circumstances of extreme gaming and overclocking. SOLID CAP - One With their aluminum core design, Solid CAP's have been a staple in high-end design mainboard designs and provides lower Equivalent Series Resistance (ESR) as well as its over-10-year lifespan. Hi-C CAP - A Hi-c CAP is a very small, but super-efficient capacitor. Besides ensuring enough spacing, it also allows for 93% energy efficiency. NEW SUPER FERRITE CHOKES - New Super Ferrite Chokes use a Ferrite core that is Super-Permeable. This allows the Super Ferrite Chokes to run at a 35°C lower temperature, have a 30% higher current capacity, a 20% improvement in power efficiency and better overclocking power stability.
  • newegg GAMING APP A lightweight, easy-to-use OC tool, the Gaming App allows you to switch between OC Mode, Gaming Mode, and Silent Mode with one press of a button. Each mode has an individual pre-defined Base Clock and Boost Clock to meet different play scenarios.
  • newegg EXPERIENCE - PREDATOR A built-in screen and video capturing tool named Predator captures your screen as still images or videos with the push of a button. So you can capture and record your coolest, goofiest and most awesome gaming moments on your PC!
  • newegg AFTERBURNER MSI Afterburner has quickly become the favorite overclocking software for media, overclockers and end-users. Because of its simple interface, it's easy to learn, but it packs a lot of powerful features like an integrated benchmark utility called Kombustor that can check your system performance in benchmarking mode, or run as a stability test. Don't speak English? No problem: MSI Afterburner is translated in many languages including Russian, Spanish, Chinese, and Korean! Not satisfied with the looks? Just change to one of the many different skins or create one yourself with ease! Even better, you can run Afterburner straight from your smartphone! Download the MSI Afterburner App from Google Play or the Apple store, and start overclocking wit.

5 out of 5 eggsR9 270

Pros: Good price performance ratio, and great for budget builds. Card runs cool and quiet.

Cons: I didn't card for how the power cable hung from the card. It made cable management look a bit sloppy up front.

3 out of 5 eggsCaution for casual builders.

Pros: Great performance for the price, quiet, and runs cool.

Cons: Suffered instable systems with this card; seems picky on other hardware.

The power draw through the PCI-E seemed erratic. Would lock up on an Intel and Zotac ITX mobo but performed flawlessly on an Asus. Same results going between 450w, 600w, and 800w PSUs so I am assuming it draws the full 75w or more on the lane and the cheaper motherboards cannot handle it.

Other Thoughts: Fans do not exhaust out the faceplate of the card so you will need good airflow within your case.

Height of the card is abnormally tall making it not fit in one of my ITX cases but unnoticeable in other situations.

Tests for system lock ups were run with an i5-2500, i5-2500k, and FX ‑8350. Three ITX boards and two ATX. Results having the lock up seem to be consistent on "non-gaming" quality boards but the same boards ran stock XFX 7850s and 6950s just fine with the same setup. Technically this card should pull less power than either of the other two. I wish I had more time to figure this out.

2 out of 5 eggsMeh.

Pros: It was better than my 6670.

Cons: Bought two of these since I had heard good things. One worked fine, one would cause Elder Scrolls Online to crash out and regularly cause distortion on the Windows desktop. Had to pay to ship the defective product back to Newegg when it was under 30 days of ownership. Second card started to go downhill after a couple of months, causing distortion in games. Decided to not even bother sending it back to Newegg because I don't even want to RMA it and bought a GTX 760 instead.

Other Thoughts: As someone who only bought ATI/AMD GPUs for years, I decided to jump ship and have been happy so far.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat performance for price ratio

Pros: Very nice upgrade for my extremely out of date video card.

Cons: Not related to the card but the free games offer is pretty outdated.

Other Thoughts: Don't get your drivers from the MSI website, go right to the Radeon site. Gave me issues until this solultion was found.
