A real upgrade from my old graphics card.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sapphire Dual-X Radeon R9 270X OC 2GB GDDR5 Graphics Card with Boost (Accessory)
I upgraded to the Sapphire R9 270X from my old HD6850 that I got back in 2010.
The graphics card looks like a beast with its 2 fans but it doesn't take up too much space either so defiantly plus points for that. I was worried about the noise 2 fans would make as my old graphics card had 1 and sounded like it was going to take off. Pleased to say the Sapphire Dual fans are quiet, not whisper quiet as you can hear the slight hum from the case at idle but not anything distracting. Under load the fans are still very quiet so I put it down to excellent parts and design.
Performance wise (I have an FX-8320 CPU) this card handles 1080p gaming beautifully. It plays Call of Duty Ghosts on Ultimate, Battlefield 4 on Ultimate and Crysis 3 on ultimate and doesn't dip below 40 FPS in high cluttered and busy areas. Averages around 60-65 FPS.
This card matches the older HD7870.
This card does need 2 6 pin pci-e connections, in the box it did come with 4 pin molex to PCI-E adapters though.
