Improved Multi-Sample Anti-Aliasing MSAATechnology

Smooth Lines Make the Difference Between Itty Bitty, Low-Quality Graphics and 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 PRTTechnology

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 eggsAwsome Sauce.

Pros: This thing does everything I need it to do. Will be securing a second before to long. For nothing more than to just geek out. Doesn't seem to be necessary.

After much research, it does not really make sense to *plan* to run w/ two of these....If $$ is no issue go with the 290. And plan to run w/ two of those. Again....at that point you're just uber geeking out. I strongly encourage that.

That being said, with me, I needed a card right now a I am on a budget. This has not disappointed and New Egg is beyond perfect.

Cons: Does not come with a crossfire bridge. All info I can find, which is slim, seems to indicate a bridge is necessary to run two of these daddies. XFX website is not clear on the issue, unless I am missing something...

Just stopped review for a moment over here and double checked a literature that came with card and nothing discusses crossfire. Ya'll at XFX should put something in there w/ all the other pitch materials, dealing with crossfire. It would be educational for new users and would help you sell more cards...Knowledge can be dangerous to the pocketbook. I want a commission for the idea....A nice XFX polo will suffice. Back to the review.

Should this need a bridge to run 2, its a con that it does not come with one. Should it not need the bridge, its a con for this not being detailed someplace. Us novice hacks need help with this stuff.

Other Thoughts: Cannot give New Egg enough Eggs on this one and I'll leave it at that. ;-p

5 out of 5 eggsSo far, So good

Pros: Install seems to be going smoothly, Nice specs, particularly like what I hear about its capability to overclock.

Cons: Manufacturer does not list that it only needs one 6 pin connector to power it. Bought a new power supply when the stock one would have worked fine. Install instructions do not cover windows 7 or 8, not a big deal since I only glanced at them, but might be an issue for some.

Other Thoughts: Wish it came with an HDMI cord.

- Silent even when running demanding games
- Free games yay!
- There was a mistake in the listed warranty on the Newegg page, but Mark at XFX support took care of everything for me and gave me the superior warranty, these guys are the best

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Product

The Design looks amazing.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I will get another one eventually to crossfire both of them.

5 out of 5 eggsWow.

Pros: -Sleek design
-Great Overclockability
-Quiet
-The price

Cons: -Its not the R9 290x lol

Other Thoughts: I ordered this to replace a very old Sapphire HD 3870. Needless to say, huge improvement. I overclocked it way past the stock boosted clocks without a single problem, and at full load, it doesnt get past 62C, and still manages to stay really quiet. I will be getting another one in the future and Crossfire them. Highly recommend this card to anyone thinking of getting it.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Finally upgraded from 2 8800 GTS 640mb SLI'd. Vast improvement across the range. Skyrim has doubled in FPS and with the promotion to pick two free games, i was sold on this. Got a great deal all together.

Cons: Could be my case, but it was hard to access the hdmi port, not going to knock an egg off for that though.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Easy install, replaced EVGA Nvidia 9800GTX.

Had drivers ready to install from download. The setup-app on the CD would not run.

Noticing significant improvement in StarCraft II graphics. All settings on ULTRA.

Diablo 3, all settings on HIGH. Works awesome.

May do some bitcoin mining.

Noticing significant snappiness of normal PC and Web Browsing.

Cons: Just the setup issue with the CD. No big problem.

I am disappointed that right after I bought the card, Newegg started throwing in the 2 free games....

Other Thoughts: n/a

5 out of 5 eggsBest for the price

Pros: With an Athlon II X4 760k, the R9 270 renders The Witcher 2 very playable on ultra settings.
I'm hoping that my current build can ride out the storm that is The Witcher 3 on tweaked high settings (It will most likely be the processors fault if it cant, but i have hope!).

Cons: It was $180, and for the price vs. GTX 760, it does EXCEPTIONALLY well (not really a con).

Other Thoughts: It has one of the highest performance to value ratios out there. If you are on a budget, and don't care about 70-100 fps in next gen games, then this is the card for you.
Also it looks pretty awesome in my white NZXT H440 case!

5 out of 5 eggsGood bang for your gaming buck!

Pros: I been using this card for about a month now. Runs BF3/4 on ultra - Crysis 3 on high, plus other games with out breaking a sweat. You cant beat the price and it came with BF4 free. I recommend this to anyone building a gaming rig on a budget. Saves you on money you can use for something else on your build.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: My current build:
Corsair C7 Vengeance Gun Metal Black Case
Intel i7 3770k Stock Clock
ASRock Extreme 4 Z77 mobo
Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2 x 8GB)
XFX Core Edition R9-270A 2GB GDDR5 stock clock

5 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: Great for games. Can play BF4 on ultra at 35-40 fps by itself. I am currently using crossfire on 2 of these cards and they run beautifully and looks amazing. Never have crashed on me while in a game.

Cons: Fan is kinda loud, but i got use to it and don't notice it very often anymore

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this card to anyone thinking about getting it.
