Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X OC Video Card Review

Postby Apoptosis » Mon Dec 02, 2013 4:30 pm

The Radeon R9 270X graphics card was released by AMD in October 2013 and quickly became a favorite for gamers wanting a new card at the $200 price point. When the AMD Radeon R9 270X card first came out we reviewed the reference card and a high-end custom card by Sapphire. Today we will be taking a look at the Gigabyte R9 270X OC that is sold under part number GV-R927XOC-2GD and retails right now for $199.99 plus shipping. Not a bad price for a custom designed card that is also factory overclocked and backed by 3-year warranty.

I'm surprised you guys couldn't manage higher OCs than you did as I am able to run mine at 1150Mhz on the GPU and 1500Mhz on the memory

I got 1230MHz on the GPU, which is 80MHz higher than you on the core. The memory on our card flaked out in 35MHz, but was likely just one GDDR5 chip that didn't like being overclocked. Typical and why no two cards overclock exactly the same.
