2 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: It ran all my games as i expected it to. 60+ FPS Guildwars 2 all highest, AC 3 all highest no issues, Farcry 3 All highest no issues, Titanfall all highest no issues, BF 4 all highest no issues. First time in 3 years all 117 of my games can be played on All Highest settings. I was quite pleased

Cons: Defective on the first go. Tried for a month to trouble shoot it blaming drivers, or other hardware in the machine, or windows. This was not the case. Monitors basically do not detect a signal on system boot or wake up for no apparent reason. Swapped out to a different card (my old 5750) and it seems to be fine. Sent the card back to the manufacturer.

Other Thoughts: This would've been the perfect card if it hadn't had me wracking my brains over the issues for a whole a month trying to figure out why my monitors would not detect a signal causing me extra work.

When i get a good card that works as it should I'll update my rating if I can. That being said it's not a bad card. It's just that my card had some problem. though till i can try a new one from the manufacturer i can't really recommend the card.

Manufacturer Response:


This is Raymond from PowerColor. We apologize for the issue with the card, we will be investigating the card once we get it. Please email me the RMA number and I will look into.

Best Regards,

4 out of 5 eggsGood cards

Pros: Solid cards
Backplate is very nice
Feel very solid in construction.
Relatively quiet fans

Cons: Can't seem to get these OC'd at all without experiencing some Bsod or driver crashes. Even very minor OCing causes these issues. Problem not replicated at clock speeds.

Other Thoughts: Not a bad card at all for the price, runs just fine at base clocks as long as not attempted to OC.

1 out of 5 eggsCheap knockoff, spend $20 more and get a decent brand

Pros: Since I hit my order limit on the good cards (Gigabyte and Sapphire) I was able to buy these cheap cards.

They came with a free "$60" gift (can be bought for $20)...

To their credit, the cards look really meaty and sturdy and also had a back plate to disperse heat.

Cons: Horrible cooling system, cards run much hotter than all other cards. The Gigabyte windforce have 3 fans and can sit at 60% fan speed while maintaining a great temperature. These PowerColor's have to run at 100% just to get CLOSE to their proper temperature.

Cards constantly cause weird issues and crashing, I have 10 other cards and none of them have had a single issue, all of them are R9 270x.

Both rigs running PowerColor's have been awful.

One card came with a bent pin, causing the PCI plug not to go in. I had to carefully bend the pin back so that the plug could go in... This was a factory defect, and not really acceptable IMO.

Other Thoughts: Thank goodness for New Egg's return support. I ordered 4 new GB Windforce cards and will be RMA'ing these PowerColor's back to where they came from.

I don't even feel bad sending back the $60 gift, these cards are THAT BAD.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap and a Good Performer

Pros: * Cheaper than Nvidia for similar performance (close to GTX760)
* Got it on sale
* Runs BF4 on High at 60 FPS+

Cons: * None so far, runs really well

Other Thoughts: I got BF4 and tried to run it on my 3.5 year old rig. I could run it alright on Low settings, but any higher was less than 10 FPS. It was okay for a while, but would occasionally stutter down in FPS in some heavier fights. So I started researching a card that could stretch the life of my system.

Originally I wanted to stay with an nvidia card, but kept seeing the new R9 cards running so close and cheaper than the nvidia cards.
The 270X was running neck and neck with the GTX760 and was a good $50-70 cheaper. Eventually that sealed it.

If you're looking for a good midrange card that can run all the modern games well, this is a great choice.

5 out of 5 eggspowercolor pcs+

Pros: This is a great graphics card i can max out sniper ghost warrior 2 and dirt showdown. planetside 2 runs on all high settings while maintaining 60 fps and 30fps on heavy battles.i have yet to test bf4 i love this graphics card. it will handle everything you throw at it. i reccomend this to every one looking for a mid range card.

Cons: this is a horrible overclocker i overclocked thhe core clock a little an i quickly got a blue screen .and for some reason when i first used it i would only get a green flashing screen after connecting a dvi cable to it it worked then i had to set i to hdmi . but for some reason every once in a while it will do this again when it start up but then quickly switches back to hdmi and starts to work. i think i will just start using the dvi cable to for the display

Other Thoughts: ok i hate microsoft .so the day i installed my gpu i downloaded the beta drivers. i started experiancing flickering of the display it was very aggravating after a little research i found out it was the beta drivers i quickly install the other functional drivers. it was running fine after that but. ever since i had installed my gpu the display did not fit in my monitor. after some more research i realised that this is fixable with the catylist control centeri thought ok easy fix after about an hour trying to open up the catylist control center it wouldent workafter 2 days of trying to figure this out i was very impatiant and angry but some more research i saw that removing the MICROSOFT c++ software would fix the problem. but basicly microsoft uploaded a software to all are computers making the catylist control centerc not usable. so its not amd,s fault its MICROSOFTS fault

5 out of 5 eggsBig Value for an X

Pros: Factory OC'd even the memory is strong right Out of the Box. Run cool for the OC due to a straightforward, but super efficient cooler while the fans are not heard or what I consider loud. Nice sturdy construction with stamp metal fan shroud, and super they provide it with the backing plate. It really exudes high quality touch and feel that I hasn't seen for a card of the class. Got a good price before they went stratosphere stupid!

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card (especially for the price!)

Pros: I can't believe how cool this card runs.

I get 101 fps with Cinebench software, and the temp doesn't seem to ever go above 65 C.

Cons: I haven't really found any yet.

Other Thoughts: I bought this because it was still in the R9 family, but not as expensive as the 280 and 290. The performance has really impressed me so far. I can't imagine what a 280 or 290 might be able to do.
