Up to 13dB Quieter and 45°F (7°C) Cooler than Our Competitors

The Exclusive XFX Double Dissipation Design is Cooler and Quieter than Others

XFX's exclusive dual fan double dissipation design utilizes two larger fans which run at slower RPM than comparable single fan soltuions which must run at much higer RPMs just to barely achieve the same cooling needs. Because of this design, XFX is able to achieve up to 13dB lower noise than the competitor while simultaneously increasing the overall cooling by 7°C.

Fixed Clocks Speeds are a Thing of the Past, Power Tune Dynamic Performance Scaling Determines the Best Clock Speed in Real Time

AMD PowerTune technology is a significant leap forward to better ensure that performance is optimized for TDP-constrained GPUs. AMD PowerTune technology helps deliver higher performance that is optimized to the thermal limits of the GPU by dynamically adjusting the clock during runtime based on an internally calculated GPU power assessment. AMD PowerTune technology can dynamically adjust the performance profile in real time to fit within the TDP envelope.

Improved Multi Sample Anti-Aliasing MSAA Technology

Smooth Lines Make All the Difference Between Itty Bitty, Low-Quality Graphics Versus Smooth Realistic Graphics

MSAA smooths out the jagged edges of a curved object. A black curved line on a white background displayed on a computer screen will have some jaggedness along its edges due to the inherent limitations of using discrete pixels to display the image. Anti-aliasing smooths out this jaggedness by filling in the white spaces between the jagged edges with varying shades of gray which gives you the smooth soft shadows, crisp sharp lines of buildings, and crisp tiny details in clothing that make your experience truly realistic.

Partially Resident Textures PRT Technology

Radically Change the Detail of Your Games from Flat to Realistic

Even in the latest titles, gamers may have noticed that games often reuse or repeat textures, particularly on the ground or in background scenery such as mountains or trees. This is because increasing the physical size or number of textures in a game can have a negative impact on the performance of a GPU. PRT is a radical technology that hopes to break this cycle.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid card for a solid price!

Pros: -Fast
-Looks cool
-Quiet
-Excellent performance for the price

Cons: Not Nvidia. (This isn't really a con as both AMD and Nvidia have great technology. I couldn't think of anything negative to say about the card. I have always had Nvidia cards and have always been an Nvidia lover, this is my first Radeon. But so far it has worked great!)

Other Thoughts: Like I said, this is my first Radeon. Well, my first Radeon that is a legitimate gaming card. I used to have an MSI GTX 560ti Golden Edition and it was a beast! Then I got an EVGA GTX 760. I returned it because it had problems so I decided why not take this opportunity to give AMD a shot. This card has not stuttered with any of my games. I have been playing Crysis 3 at 1080p and Very High settings without issue. Performance is comparable to a GTX 760 so for me no complaints. This XFX version is overclocked and it has a pretty solid cooler. I haven't done any extra overclocking or benchmarking but for realy world gaming performance at less than $250.00 it's a great deal. I bought this one at Best Buy but I use Newegg all the time so I am writing my review here.

2 out of 5 eggsBad Luck

Pros: The 270X is a nice card for the person who wants to game but doesn't want to shell out 400+ dollars, it can play any game out right now, most at highest settings with 60+ FPS. That being said...

Cons: I've been through hell with this card and it was never completely solved but I just about gave up, if I could go back I would have chosen a non-OC edition card.

First of all let me say I'm not blaming XFX, I blame the bitcoin/litecoin/everyothercoin mining fad on the long wait but it should still be explained. I got my first card, I immediately started having problems with it, I would randomly get vertical lines when gaming, this happened once a day at least sometimes more, very annoying when playing League of Legends. After about a week back and forth with support they gave me an RMA, and I sent it back to them.

This is where I blame the bitcoin/litecoin miners, it took XFX 6 WEEKs to get me another card back, they sent me the same model card, it was a new serial number however, and I got nothing else for having to wait, again I wasn't all that upset, however....

I got my new card, I was pumped I could finally have a working card except this card also crashed with vertical lines, but this time it generally happened on the Windows Desktop instead of ingame.

In both cases the card seemed to work fine if I clocked down the memory from the OC out of box 1450 to the non-OC 1400, I don't wanna wait another 6 weeks for a card as I see they are sold out again everywhere.

Other Thoughts: My closing thoughts would be just go for the non overclocked version I don't think these all binned well enough for being overclocked.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Cards for the Long Haul

Pros: Fast, even though they are not the top of the line, you will never know the difference. Even better yet run 2 of them in CrossFire.

Cons: I have found none yet, pretty odd for me, I usually find something wrong.

Other Thoughts: I have only ran 2 of these in CrossFire, so I can not comment on the performance of only one. I do know that this is the last AMD card that requires the CrossFire bridge, the 290X does this through the PCIe buss. So if you like the look of the bridge, get this card. If not get the 290X.

5 out of 5 eggsWow

Pros: - Lots of card for the money
- Knocks on the door of every game thrown its way,drags it out and beats it into submission
- Easy to install and set up
- AMD is finally getting drivers right or close to right with little tweaking needed
- Cool looking. Not flashy, not ugly. Just right
-Very quiet. Even super loaded, this thing just hums
- Plays Battlefield 4, Hitman: Absolution, Thief, Elder Scrolls Online (I'm beta testing), Sleeping Dogs...all of them on ultra settings with nary a glitch, skip or bump. Max FPS on all games.
- Good availability for the most part.

Cons: It's big so fitting it takes a moment longer than other cards. Not enough of a con to take an egg off and one that any serious gamer or computer geek won't even notice.

Other Thoughts: This is the card I've been waiting for. The last time I had a GPU that I liked this much and met or exceeded my expectations was an Viper AGP card from the mid 90's that allowed me to play Quake to it's full potential in GL. That's about as good of a praise I can give anything.

5 out of 5 eggsR9 270x by XFX :D

Pros: This card is:
Quiet (in the right enviornment see other thoughts)
Powerful runs every game I own on ultra or very high (see other thoughts
Cool.
256 bit
this is the black edition which comes with a factory oc of 1100mhz
can do crossfire

Cons: This card knows no cons. runs like a charm.

Other Thoughts: I have run AC4 on maximum settings all around (excluding anti aliasing) BF4 on ultra/very high and Crysis 3 on very High.
My build is slightly bottlenecks this gpu due to my amd A10 6700 giving in at times on some games. I would highly recomend an fx 4300 or better on the amd side, or an i5 on the intel side.

5 out of 5 eggsJust as expected.

Pros: Works great and does exactly as it says on the tin. Overclocking is simple. It is more quiet than I expected. Then again, I was previously using a leaf blower as my GPU! (I was using an XFX 6870 with a shroud.)

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: It took me a while to realize what the heck power control was. It's not the same as setting voltage, so be careful when altering this setting. I've left mine alone, mostly. Although bumping it up to 3-5% seems to help during intense gaming, it has also crashed once.

Hopefully that was a fluke. I don't think extra power consumption would kill my card that quickly.. but I'll leave that for a later review if it does happen.

5 out of 5 eggsPower House

Pros: This card has 2 90mm fans and runs super quite even when it is pushed to the max. I got this card for the lifetime warranty. No hiccups yet!

Cons: Had issue when installing the driver from cd Got the blue screen of death, also had an error of MMLoadDrv:MMLoadDrv.exe - Bad image
I fixed this by doing a system restore and running the current downloaded drivers from the website. This fixed the problem and has ran perfect ever since

Other Thoughts: I run a amd fx-8320 processor, 16GB ram, and 2 of these cards. Runs games great with a high fps on ultra settings. I am loving this also for the game making process allows me to use better graphics and also the use of mantle I am just starting to play around with really excited
