XFX Radeon DD R270X 1050M 2GB reviewed

Review: Battlefield 4 bundle, rock solid DD cooler

Today we want to share our thoughts on XFX's Radeon DD R9 270X. The full name of the card is XFX Double Dissipation R9 270X 1050M Boost 2GB DDR5 Ghost Thermal Dual Mini DisplayPort HDMI dual-DVI or Part No.: R9-270X-CDFC. Let’s also add that XFX is giving away a Battlefield download code and the deal is retroactive – it even applies to consumers who happen to already have an XFX R9 270X, bought before November 12 2013.

In terms of specifications, the R9 270X is identical to the Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition. The only exception is the updated display controller hardware. New R9-series cards are a bit better compared to the HD 7000-series when it comes to using multiple displays. If you are planning to use a three-monitor setup, you no longer have to use DisplayPort for the third one; you can use two DVIs and an HDMI connector.

AMD partners had a lot of time to get acquainted with the HD 7870, so they also developed even better coolers for the 270X. XFX is no exception and we are pleased to confirm that the DD R9 270X runs silently under full load.

The R9 270X and HD 7870 are based on 28nm Pitcairn silicon, now known under new a name as Curacao. It features 1280 stream processors, 80 texture memory units (TMUs), 32 raster operations units (ROPs), and a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface backed by 2GB of GDDR5 memory.

XFX DD R9-270X-CDFC works on reference clocks and that is plain to see in GPUZ.
