MSI has launched a new member of the MSI Gaming Series lineup, the 17cm long R9 270X Gaming 2G ITX graphics card aimed to be used with SFF rigs and mini-ITX motherboards.
Based on a custom, 17cm long PCB, as well a custom cooler, the MSI R9 270X Gaming 2G ITX is based on AMD's 28nm Curacao XT GPU with 1280 Stream Processors, 2GB of memory and works at 1030MHz for the GPU base, 1070MHz for the GPU Boost clock while memory ended up at 5.6GHz.
In order to keep the Curacao XT GPU well cooled, MSI used a custom dual-slot cooler with the MSI RADAX fan, a Hybrid Radial/axial fan. The new MSI R9 270X Gaming 2G ITX also feature MSI Military Class 4 components and fea tures two mini-DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI outputs.
Unfortuantely, MSI did not announce any details regarding the availability or the price but a quick check at our favorite price-search engine shows it listed in Europe with a price tag set at €199.90.
