The Radeon R9 270X Graphics Card from ASUS is a graphics card for computers with PCI Express expansion slots, and includes drivers for Windows. The card is designed for gamers and other users running applications that require or benefit from a dedicated graphics card.

The card features a 1120 MHz GPU that has 1280 stream processors, allowing it to perform hundreds of computations simultaneously when using software that supports parallel processing. To move data to and from the GPU as quickly as possible, the card features 2GB of 1.4 GHz GDDR5 RAM with an effective (QDR) clock speed of 5.6 GHz and a 256-bit memory interface.

The card can be connected to a variety of display types, including computer monitors, HDTVs, projectors, and 3D displays. It features an HDMI port with HDCP support, a DisplayPort port, a DVI-I (digital and analogue) port, a DVI-D (digital only port), and a DVI-to-VGA adapter that can be used to connect VGA devices to the DVI-I port. It can drive up to four displays connected directly, depending on the total resolution, and up to six via the DisplayPort output when using a Multi-Stream Transport (MST) hub.

In addition to being able to connect four displays directly to the card, using AMD Eyefinity technology it is possible to drive up to six displays via the DisplayPort output. To do this, one or more Multi-Stream Transport (MST) hubs or monitors with daisy-chaining capability will be required

Thanks to AMD HD3D you can view 3D content from Blu-ray DVDs, video games, 3D graphics software, and other 3D applications when using the card in conjunction with compatible active or passive 3D displays

AMD CrossFire technology allows you to combine two compatible GPUs using a CrossFire Bridge Interconnect cable to increase total processing power, boosting overall performance

Supports DirectX 11.2, OpenCL, C++ AMP, DirectCompute 5.0, AMD Stream Processing, AMD App Acceleration, and other APIs to allow compatible software to benefit from GPU acceleration, taking much of the workload off your computer’s CPU

Dynamically regulates power to the GPU depending on usage for lower operating temperatures and less energy consumption; increasing power when needed or reducing it to close to zero when not in use. When using two cards with CrossFire, the second card automatically shuts down when not required

Alloy components and flattened copper heatpipes help to reduce power loss, enhance durability, and achieve cooler operating temperatures to help minimize fan noise and extend the lifespan of the card

Utility software that allows for real-time monitoring of GPU performance, provides assistance with overclocking, and downloads and installs driver and firmware updates

Because GDDR5 RAM can transfer up to four words per cycle, as opposed to one word per cycle with traditional RAM, the effective data rate is quadrupled, allowing this card to process data transactions as quickly as if it had a 5.6 GHz memory clock speed

Provides twice the bandwidth of PCI Express 2.0; for example, an x8 PCI Express 3.0 slot has the same bandwidth as an x16 PCI 2.0 slot. In addition, the card remains backward-compatible with motherboards using earlier generations of PCI Express

    VisionTek Radeon R9 270x Video Card Review

    Written By:

    James Pikover

    Updated July 5, 2022

    The dust from the great GPU Battle of twenty-thirteen has long since settled. Nvidia claimed victories in both low thermal footprint and overall performance, while AMD walked away seizing the value trophy. Compare this video card with our Gigabyte GTX 760 windforce 3X OC video card review to decide which is best for your PC. The GTX 780 Ti and AMD R9 290 are the flagship offerings from each company and make no mistake. Each mighty card will have you gaming at the bleeding edge of performance and speed. The Nvidia GTX 960M is also a great choice. To compare Visiontek products with other top ranking computer accessories head on to our reviews.

    Yet, what about those who don’t want to game at the white-knuckle bleeding edge of master race gaming? What might be the best consumer level card, something can keep you around 60 frames per second and still maintain a 1080p display resolution in today’s modern games? The Visiontek R9 270x is just that card. It’s not very stylish and flaunts a modest heat sink and fan design. It’s all par for the course on a card targeting the $200-and-below price bracket. Style and flair are not on the menu of the coin-conscious gamer. But a reliable card that can go the distance when needed, is definitely what the gaming doctor ordered. Compare this with the Asus ROG Strix RX480 8GB OC to find what’s for your PC.

    Related: Gamers will also love the Corsair K55 RGB Gaming Keyboard.

    Design

    The VisionTek 270x is the first card where I feel I have to take the manufacture to task for the packaging. EVGA and Gigabyte use foam to better secure their GPUs from the evils of general entropy and butter-fingered delivery drivers. The use of cardboard can work, but here it was used sparingly leaving the card poorly secured. The flipside…? Cutting corners on packaging undoubtedly allows for a cheaper price tag at retail. If you’re still not sold by this graphics card, take a look at the MSI GeoForce GTX 1070 Graphics Card review to learn more.

    The contents are a simple cache of the bare essentials. You get the VisionTek R9 270x video card. Installation disk with drivers. These have been updated. They’re fine to use if you don’t have an internet connection at the time of install. But ideally you want to skip over to the official site or the AMD to get the most current set of drivers. You also receive a quick installation guide, DVI-to-VGA dongle and a pair of Molex 4-pin power cable attachments.

    Specifications

    Graphics Engine: RADEON R9 270X
    Video Memory: 2GB GDDR5
    Memory Interface: 256-bit
    DirectX® Support: 11.2
    Bus Standard: PCI Express 3.0
    Core Speed: 1030MHz (1080Mhz boost)
    Memory Speed: 1400MHz x4 (5.6Gbps)
    VGA Output: Using DVI to VGA adapter
    DVI Output: SL-DVI-D + DL DVI-I
    HDMI Output: HDMI (video/audio)
    DisplayPort Output: DisplayPort (video/audio)
    UEFI Ready: Support
    Warranty: Limited Lifetime

    The absence of any sort of physical game bundle is not surprising. But there’s no validation code for a free game download or in-game currency for one of the hotter free-2-play game titles. Bummer. Additionally a bridge for Crossfire multi-gpu support was not included. Yet the bridge often come with a motherboard. The VisionTek R9 270x does support crossfire, howver. So it can accommodate if you’re hopping to significantly boost your performance at a later date. Crossfire and Nvidia’s SLI tech are great ways to piecemeal additional performance. Buy one card now and another down the road. It’s “bloody brilliant.” While not in use, the Crossfire bridge connector is covered with a plastic cap to prevent dust build up and unwanted jostling.

    Ok! VisionTek has made it clear, which market they are targeting. While this is definitely a budget card, it’s one of the best consumer level cards on the market and at this price point, it’s all win for gamers.

    Benchmarks

    These are some of the more demanding games right now. Broderlands 2 is getting a bit long in the tooth but the heavy degree of physics calculations needed in areas like the game’s Sanctuary are still a great test. In Crysis 3, I ran the first couple levels. This is a gorgeous game that many feel you need either a console or a high end PC to enjoy the bells and whistles. That’s not so with the VisionTek R9 270x. As  you can see Borderlands 2 performance beautifully on the 270x. I should also note, all the more demanding PhysX calculations are not supported on AMD cards and therefore not taxing the 270x card as such.

    Conclusion

    The VisionTek Radeon R9 270x is a great buy. The company was smart and opted against the reference cooler used by AMD. This custom design is far more efficient with significantly lower heat and noise footprint. If you’re eyeballing this one, then you know bleeding edge gaming is not in the cards for this one. But for a sub-$200 price tag this 270x from VisionTek is nailing the 1080p sweet spot of gaming better than the competition. The competition does sport some fancy extras like Shadowplay video recording and GeForce Experience one-stop game settings center. Yet if those of little interest to you, the by all means the VisionTek Radeon R9 270x comes highly recommended for penny-pinching gamers.

It is quite logical that in connection with the recent announcement of the AMD Volcanic Islands family of video cards, all major partners of AMD have started selling their own original models based on the new products presented. One of the largest video card manufacturers, ASUS, did not stand aside either. She presented model ASUS Radeon R9 270 X DirectCU II TOP .

The novelty is based on the AMD Radeon R9 270X solution, the features of which you have already seen on the example of the GIGABYTE Radeon R9 270X Overclock Edition video card. And before proceeding directly to its review, let us recall that this series of video cards is aimed at competing with the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 and it has a recommended cost of $ 200 for «reference» models.

ASUS

ASUS Radeon R9 270X DirectCU II TOP vs AMD Radeon R9 «Reference»270X is an almost completely unique development, because it inherited only the graphics core, video memory modules and a set of external interfaces from the reference video card. Everything else, from the design of the printed circuit board to the design of the cooling system, is ASUS’ own development. As for the operating frequencies, the graphics processor is factory overclocked from 1050 to 1120 MHz (an increase of 6.67%). The video memory operates at the recommended effective frequency of 5600 MHz. Since we will talk about the cooling system and the element base a little later, we suggest moving on to studying the packaging, delivery kit and proprietary technologies implemented in ASUS Radeon R9270X DirectCU II TOP.

Packaging and contents

The ASUS R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 video card is not a flagship product, but it is delivered in a fairly large cardboard box with high-quality printing. In addition to the name of the manufacturer and model, we note the mention of the amount and type of video memory used, the belonging of this solution to the TOP line (factory overclocked graphics accelerators) and the presence of the GPU Tweak utility in the package. The main advantages of the novelty are the proprietary DirectCU II cooling system and the DIGI + VRM digital power subsystem, which should positively affect its stability and overclocking potential.

The reverse side of the box is reserved for a more detailed description of the advantages of the proprietary cooling system, digital power subsystem, and the GPU Tweak utility. Nearby is a schematic representation of the interface panel.

The list of system requirements for the computer in which the video card is planned to be installed is located on one of the sides of the box. Based on the recommendations, the power supply in such a system must have a power of at least 500 W and deliver at least 24 A through the + 12V power line.

In the box with ASUS Radeon R9 270X DirectCU II TOP, in addition to the standard documentation and a software CD, we found an adapter for powering the graphics adapter and an AMD CrossFireX bridge.

To display an image on the tested novelty, a reference set of video outputs is provided:

  • 1 x DVI-I;
  • 1 x DVI-D;
  • 1 x HDMI;
  • 1 x DisplayPort.

If you want to connect an analog monitor, you will have to take care of the appropriate adapter yourself.

The following resolutions are supported:

  • digital — up to 4096 x 2160;
  • analog — up to 2048 x 1536.

Appearance and element base

base, and in the power subsystem.

The video card is powered by a reinforced eight-phase circuit (six phases for the GPU and one for the memory chips and PLL), which is one more phase in the GPU power circuit than the «reference» model.

The graphics core power subsystem is implemented on the DIGI+ VRM ASP1211 digital PWM controller. Note that according to the manufacturer, the use of solid capacitors, ferrite core chokes and a digital PWM controller (Super Alloy Power and DIGI + VRM concepts) can reduce voltage ripple by 30%, increase energy efficiency by 15% and extend the service life by 2. 5 times video cards.

In addition to the PCI Express 3.0 x16 slot, the new items are powered through two additional connectors located on the side of the video card. In keeping with the «reference» design, they are both 6-pin. Separately, we note the convenient location of these connectors, which accompanies the convenient connection and disconnection of additional power cables.

To implement AMD CrossFireX technology, the ASUS Radeon R9 270X DirectCU II TOP model has a connector for installing the corresponding bridge, which allows you to combine two video cards for joint calculation of graphic effects.

The reverse side of the printed circuit board, with the exception of the fixing screws of the cooling system and an additional stiffener on the upper edge of the textolite, is almost completely devoid of significant components, since the PWM controller and memory chips are located on its front side in accordance with the reference design.

The ASUS R9270X-DC2T-2GD5 is based on the AMD Curacao XT graphics chip, which is identified by the GPU-Z utility version 0.7.3 as Pitcairn. It is manufactured according to the 28nm process technology and consists of 1280 universal shader pipelines, 32 rasterization units and 80 texture units. As we have already said, the frequency of the graphics core has been increased relative to AMD’s recommendations and is 1120 MHz.

The memory of the novelty, with a total capacity of 2 GB, is assembled using 8 chips with a capacity of 256 MB each, manufactured by ELPIDA. Judging by the marking (W2032BBBG-6A-F) and documentation, their nominal frequency is 6 GHz, although in our case it was lowered to 5600 MHz. This allows us to hope for a good overclocking potential of the microcircuits used. Data exchange between the graphics core and memory is carried out through a 256-bit bus, which is capable of passing 179.2 GB of information per second.

Cooling system

The graphics card with the DirectCU II cooling system installed occupies two expansion slots and has a total length of 272 mm (according to the official website) and 287 mm according to our measurements in the test lab.

The cooler consists of a fairly large radiator, in the structure of which 42 aluminum plates are used, and two fans with an impeller diameter of 75 mm, mounted on a casing that covers the entire structure from above.

Three copper heat pipes with a diameter of 8 mm are used to evenly distribute heat over the entire area of ​​the radiator. Note that the radiator fins and heat pipes are covered with a layer of nickel, which is designed to reduce the drop in CO efficiency during operation, caused by the oxidation of metals. As standard for DirectCU II coolers, the heat pipes directly contact the surface of the GPU cover through a small layer of thermal paste.

As you can see, the main cooling system, using a special thermal interface, contacts directly with three of the eight memory chips, while the remaining five and the power elements of the power stabilization module do not have additional cooling.

There is no solder between the heatsink fins and heatpipes, which may affect the heat transfer efficiency.

With automatic fan speed control, in the maximum load mode, the graphics core heated up to 67 degrees, and the cooler, judging by the monitoring readings, worked at only 47% of its maximum power. Subjectively, the noise level can be described as «medium». At the same time, it is absolutely comfortable for prolonged work near a PC.

After forcibly increasing the fan speed to the maximum level, the GPU temperature dropped to 57 degrees. The generated noise level can be described as «high, and not comfortable for long-term use.» By tradition, we recall that the transition to this mode of operation during everyday use is unlikely, since such a high speed of rotation of the blades may be needed only during extreme overclocking of the video card and its prolonged use in this state.

When there is no load, the graphics core and memory frequencies are automatically reduced to reduce the power consumption and heat dissipation of the graphics core. In this mode, the GPU temperature does not exceed 29 degrees, and the noise level is quite quiet.

As a result, the cooling system of the novelty can be described as a high-quality and very productive solution that will allow you to comfortably play in the evening without making too much noise. It also has a very good headroom, allowing you to experiment with overclocking. However, it is worth remembering that forcibly increasing the speed of the fan blades to the maximum level will significantly increase the level of noise emitted.
