PowerColor PCS+ R9 270X Graphics Card Review

It’s been a while since we reviewed the AMD reference design GPU14 graphics cards. However, now that the partner cards are becoming available, PowerColor has sent along their PCS+ R9 270X for us to have a look at. This card comes factory overclocked and has what appears to be a pretty stout cooling solution. The AMD R9 270X GPUs offer good performance at an affordable price, and I’ve been waiting to see how AMD partners incorporate these GPU14 cards into their product lineups. So, let’s see what PowerColor has been able to do as we run this card through our review process. Read More

HIS iCooler R7 250, 260X IceQ X2, and R9 270X IceQ X2 Turbo Videocard Reviews

So, AMD has had their little song and dance about TrueAudio and the new generation of GPUs they have released. We have reviewed from the R9 290, almost all the way down the row to the R7 250.

AMD R9 270X Graphics Card Review

It’s yet another launch day for AMD; and this time around, we have a card in their GPU14 product lineup – the R9 270X. The press deck we received has the R9 270X targeted directly at the $199 price range, which should make it a viable option in the highly competitive mid-priced graphics card market. At that price range, it puts the NVIDIA GTX 660 series of cards squarely in its crosshairs. By all indications, it should also come relatively close to the HD 7950 performance, even with its slightly trimmed specifications. Read More
