Sapphire Radeon R9 270X 2GB TOXIC Video Card Review

We take a look at another new TOXIC series video card from Sapphire. This time it's the lower-end Radeon R9 270X 3GB model.

The other day we got the chance to look at the Sapphire Radeon R9 280X 3GB TOXIC. We not only found ourselves impressed with what the R9 280X 3GB brought to the table, but also extremely impressed with what Sapphire did with the TOXIC variation, one we hadn't seen pop up in a while.

 

If you found yourself also impressed with what was on offer, but feel the mid-$300 price tag that comes with the product is a bit too high for you, we might have the perfect compromise for you here today.

 

The R9 270X 2GB has already done a great job of showing us what it's capable of and we're looking forward to see what happens when Sapphire put the magic TOXIC touch on the model today. Coming in at a bit over $100 cheaper than its big brother, if you're looking for something in the lower $200 price bracket, this could be the card for you.

 

On one hand we found ourselves lucky to get the sample a little earlier than we'd expect, on the other side of that, though, because we did get it earlier, we weren't able to get a full package of the card simply because it's not 100% ready yet.
