4 out of 5 eggs Good card for the price 01/06/2014

This review is from: SAPPHIRE 100364-4GBF4L Radeon R9 270X 4GB GDDR5 Video Card w/BF4 Coupon

Pros:

This is a solid card overall. It's quiet, the extra vram allows you to xfire this card and it's performance at 1440 actually surprised me.

Cons:

Here is why I have this card 4 starts. Maybe It's just fine, but the card is a really bad overclocker. Even with power set to 20+% I was hard pressed to get 1155 out of the core and maybe an extra 30 out of the ram. Pretty sad consider reviews on the Asus have these cards at 1250 and close to 1500 on the memory.

Other Thoughts:

There is Zero and I mean Zero point in buying this card (4gb) if you are not going to xfire. The 4gb of memory is nice but this card at it's normal number of 2gb - will run out of processing power before it will run out of memory. Now, where the memory comes in nice is if you plan to xfire. Now you are talking about an xfire that is a just about on par with a 290, faster than a 780 and has 4gb of memory. Please research - don't buy this card if you are not going to xifre. Its pointless. Save some money and get a 2gb version.
