PowerColor PCS+ R9 270X 2GB reviewed

Review: You won’t go wrong with the PowerColor PCS+ R9 270X 2GB

PowerColor was kind enough to offer consumers a wide range of R9 270X with four different coolers, and today we’ll be looking at one of them, the PCS+ R9 270X. This is perhaps the most interesting card in the company’s 270X lineup. The PCS+ cooler promises excellent performance, the GPU is factory overclocked at the price/performance ratio is still good. For those who want an even more premium product, PowerColor also has the Devil R9 270X. The full name of the card is PowerColor PCS+ R9 270X 2GB GDDR5, or Part Number: AXR9 270X 2GBD5-PPDHE.

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 have better support for multiple displays than old HD 7000-series products. If you are planning to use a three-monitor setup, you no longer have to use DisplayPort for the third display. You can use two DVIs and an HDMI connector.

The R9 270X (and the old HD 7870) are based on 28nm Pitcairn silicon, now known under a new 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.

AMD partners had a lot of time to get acquainted with the HD 7870, which allowed them to develop even better custom coolers for the 270X. PowerColor is no exception and we are pleased to confirm that the PCS+ R9 270X runs silently under full load.

PowerColor PCS+ R9-270X comes factory overclocked. The GPU clock is raised by 50MHz and the memory by 25MHz (effectively 100MHz GDDR5).
