Sapphire has rolled out another Radeon R9 270 graphics card. This will be a factory-overclocked variant, the R9 270 Boost OC Edition. The card looks pretty much identical to the R9 270 Dual-X which Sapphire launched in mid-November. The difference is this card comes with factory-overclocked speeds of 920 MHz core, 945 MHz boost, and 5.6 GHz (effective) memory, compared to AMD’s reference 900/925/5600 MHz speeds.
The card has a custom black PCB and features Sapphire’s Dual-X cooler that makes use of two cooling fans, an aluminum fin-stack heatsink, and copper heatpipes. The R9 270 features 1280 stream processors, 80 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface with 2GB of memory. This card should retail for around $180.
