With Ultra Resolution Gaming you can leave HD in the dust by gaming on displays much, much larger.

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.

1 out of 5 eggsVery Disappointing

Pros: When it was working, gave the expected results. The benchmark was very good considering the price.

Cons: The card worked for a few weeks then started to show problems, ie. the screen would frozen and painted one color. It happened repeatedly, each time forcing a reboot. I returned the card to MSI and they sent me a replacement card (could be a new or a refurbished as per their policy). The replacement card did not work at all, ie. no signal was sent to the monitor from either the 2 DVI ports or the HDMI port. I tried to move the small switch on the video card one way or an other but nothing worked. When in that state I connected the DVI cable back to the MB video card to see if the PC was running but nothing showed up so it "appeared" to have hung the PC as well. I returned that replacement card and MSI sent me an other one. Exact same situation, ie. no signal sent to the monitor. I got a RMA number from MSI and I'll send that 2nd replacement card to them. This time I specified that I'd like them to send me a NEW card or a different card that would be 100% compatible with my MB (ASROCK Z87 PRO3). We'll see what they send me.

This card was a very nice deal on Newegg.ca when I bought it but considering the 2 return shipping I had to pay for, it's quickly becoming a money pit. Very very very disappointing.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Card, x2

Pros: When it runs, it runs well.

Cons: This card has caused me nothing but headache. The first card, when received, worked well, but after a few months, my monitor would randomly turn black for 2 seconds, and then come back on. When I requested an RMA from MSI, I was told that I needed to check my motherboard because they were not sure it was my cards fault. Skipping forward, I eventually replaced both my motherboard and power supply (not just for these reasons) and the card was still acting up, and eventually stopped responding altogether.

After which, I attempted their RMA system again and success, an instant RMA was generated (previously a customer support person was emailing me for an RMA approval). I send it back, get this card with no details as to what was wrong with the other card or if it was checked. I install this card, removed the drivers (completely clean wipe), install it, and low and behold, after a week it starts doing the same thing, but now with artifacting. I borrow my friend's computer and it is doing the same exact thing. So I am back to using my older Gigabyte NVIDIA card hoping that MSI will respond with something more than just an RMA and another defective card.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,
Correct since based on the symptom you reported, we suggest you checking following steps below since many reasons can cause the situation like this ,
1. Check and make sure that power are connected correctly and firmly.
2. Check your other major hardware’s (memory, video card, CPU and power supply) to ensure that they are not the cause of the issue.
3. If possible verify the video card on another working system to check.
4. If you need further assistant, please feel free to contact our technical support department directly at 626.271.1004 from M to F, 6am to 6pm Pacific standard Time.

4 out of 5 eggsStill a great buy

Pros: Plays most games, even Battlefield Hardline, at great solid frame rates at 1080p.

Overclocks like mad and crossfire scaling (gaming permitted) is very good.

This card is really quiet unless you push the fans past 60%

Only requires one 6-pin

Cons: ...well it makes the 270x irrelevant, lol.

Fans tend to be a gamble on these cards. My friends was fine, but mine leaked oil and one of the fans stopped working all together

Other Thoughts: Good news about the cons is that MSI's warranty process is pretty painless and has a quick turnaround.

1 out of 5 eggsComplete fail

Pros: Ran great for the time that it did. Good FPS for the price but if MSI is not willing to stand be hide their product than screw them!

Cons: It failed in about 4-5 week after I bought it, I RMA'd it to MSI and they sent me back the SAME video card. This is not a fix what so ever MSI. I am never buying anything from you again. SENT ME THE SAME GPU!!!!

Other Thoughts: For what I paid and who this is coming from (MSI) I expected something more from you. IF you are going to do anything at all I expect a complete replacement or an upgrade to the r9 290x 8gb . .

4 out of 5 eggsGood Stuff

Pros: Fast high quality construction.

Cons: A little on the large side its box is bigger than a motherboard box.

Other Thoughts: I paired this with an FX-6300 and 8gb of 1866 it runs DayZ flawless. I up graded from and badly outdated gt800 and amd 600e with 8gb of 1333. I plan on adding a second stick of 8gb 1866 and go to liquid cooling for over clocking in about 2 months.

4 out of 5 eggsfirst amd card since 2008....

Pros: Runs all new fps games and Company of Heroes like a champ.

Cons: It's kind of crazy how many amps are needed to run this card. The user should calculate tje amps needed from thier current PSU before purchasing. I had a 600w psu but minimum amps needed to run the card.

my PC would not boot after an hour. It felt like my psu was on the verge of killing over. so hot, it would burn you. Bought another psu with +10 amps now everything runs great.

Outside of the outrageous demand for power, the card creates ALOT of heat. In far cry 4 my temps hit almost 70C. I am always nervous when GPU temps go that high; even though AMD swears these cards can go up to 100-110F and work just fine. I use Speed-Fan to adjust the airflow when gaming. usually gets temps down to 55-60C at 48 percent fan acceleration. No card-whining either.

5 out of 5 eggsMSI R9 270 GAMING

Pros: Pretty good card. Been playing BF4 on high settings, some ultra. Good temps. Have not OC'ed it so I can't comment on that. Only crash so far is when I was playing BF Hardline Beta with every thing turn up to ultra. Purchased this 3/14, so it's a little dated but still holds it's own. All other video output from this card is awesome. My display setting is set at 1920x1080.

Cons: Fan is a little noisy when under a load.
