Any of our overclocking on the VisionTek Radeon R9 270X 2GB OC resulted in issues with artifacts beyond around 30-50MHz on the Core, and anything above 50-100MHz on the RAM. When the overclocks were stable, the performance benefits were not that great, resulting in less than 1-2% change.
Overclocking this card isn't something that it was made for, and it already has some slight OC on its clocks as it is. But, it's definitely worth considering - if you wanted to buy this card for the overclock, you might want to steer clear.
If there's one thing that the VisionTek Radeon R9 270X 2GB OC does right, it's the power consumption. It's the most power efficient card we've tested so far, even when it's compared against the GeForce GTX 960 and its impressive Maxwell architecture.
The VisionTek Radeon R9 270X 2GB OC isn't the loudest card on our chart so far, but it does make some noise during Battlefield 4. Comparing this to the GTX 960 (which isn't on our chart at the moment - sorry), it is loud - as the GTX 960s make no noise during operation thanks to their super-cool operating temperatures.
