Radeon R9 270 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon R9 270 is a Performance Graphics Card based on the First Revision of the Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture.


Architecture
The GCN 1.1 revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture adds new important technologies and is largely oriented for energy efficiency. New technologies such as PowerTune and TrueAudio are the biggest additions as well as DirectX 11.2 support.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Curacao PRO which has 20 Compute Units activated and thus offers 1280 Shader Processing Units, 80 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The Central Unit is clocked at 900MHz and goes up to 925MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1400MHz.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.


Performance
Radeon R9 270 is a direct rebrand of Radeon HD 8860 (OEM) which is essentially a Power Optimized Radeon HD 7870/Radeon HD 8870 (OEM).
It proves to be as fast as Radeon HD 7870/Radeon HD 8870 (OEM) .


System Suggestions
Radeon HD 8860 (OEM) is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a Strong Processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Six Core) and 8GB of RAM for Optimal Performance.

Hi guys,


I wanted to ask if my PSU will be able to work fine with this GPU ? If yes, can someone tell me if this is a good GPU upgrade for my computer or should I buy something better ?

Your PSU can handle it, I also recommend overclocking the R9 270 to get the performance of an R9 270x. :D

Yes! But your CPU is going to be a bottleneck, in the last AAA games.

No. Any 4th gen i3/i5/i7 will go well with this card.
