Here we are back with another graphics card review. Today we are taking a look at ASUS’s R9 270X DirectCU II Top Graphics Card. AMD’s R9 270X cards are of course based off the same 28nm Pitcairn GPU that we saw in the Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition graphics card. As the name of this card indicates it will feature’s ASUS’s own DirectCU II cooling solution, which should offer better thermals than AMD’s stock cooler while also producing less noise. This is also a TOP edition card so it is factory overclocked with the core clock being bumped up from 1050 MHz to 1120 MHz. The 2 GB of onboard GDDR5 remains at the same 5600 MHz (effective) as the reference design. Is this the R9 270X that you are looking for? Read on to find out…
The ASUS R9 270X DirectCU II TOP video card comes in ASUS’s typical packaging. On the front it lists some of the main features and on the back it goes into detail on these features.
Opening the box up inside you have the R9 270X DirectCU II TOP video card, 6pin PCIe power to dual Molex adapter, CrossFire connector, driver & utility CD and the speed setup guide.
