Introduction

The other day we got a chance to look at the new AMD Radeon R7 260X 2GB and found ourselves impressed with what AMD was bringing to the table with its new $139 video card. AMD has clearly done a better job hitting the low-end mid-range sector with this model when compared to the HD 7700 series.

 

While we know the model name of all the new cards that are coming, AMD is slowly releasing the models in the coming weeks to make sure they spend as much time as possible in the press. Outside of the R7 260X that launched, we've also seen one of the new R9 models.

 

Today we'll be checking out the new R9 270X, which carries with it a price tag of $199 for the 2GB model that we're looking at today, and $229 for the 4GB model that will also be available.

 

Just like the R7 260X we looked at, the R9 270X that we have on hand today is a reference card from AMD. That of course means that we don't have any bundle to look at, instead we'll be moving from here straight into the card itself and the main specifications.

 

So, with haste, let's get into it. Oh, and we have Battlefield 4 BETA testing included. Welcome FRAPS to the party.
