In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon R9 270 MSI Gaming 2GB Edition are marginally better than the AMD Radeon R9 270.

The R9 270 and the Radeon R9 270 have both the same core clock speed and the same Texture Fill Rate. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The R9 270 and the Radeon R9 270 have both the same core clock speed and the same Pixel Fill Rate. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

Both the Radeon R9 270 MSI Gaming 2GB Edition and the Radeon R9 270 were released at the same time, so are likely to be quite similar.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The Radeon R9 270 MSI Gaming 2GB Edition and the Radeon R9 270 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The memory bandwidth of the Radeon R9 270 MSI Gaming 2GB Edition and the Radeon R9 270 are the same, which means the R9 270 and the Radeon R9 270 have equal limitations when it comes to graphical data transfer.

Both the Radeon R9 270 MSI Gaming 2GB Edition and the Radeon R9 270 have 1280 Shader Processing Units. Having the same number of SPUs and using the same architecture means that the performance they offer can be compared by looking at the memory bandwidth, Texture and Pixel Rates. In this case, although the GPUs are very similar in performance, the R9 270 takes the edge.

The Radeon R9 270 MSI Gaming 2GB Edition requires 175 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 270 requires 150 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R9 270 and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the Radeon R9 270. The R9 270 requires 25 Watts more than the Radeon R9 270 to run. The difference is not significant enough for the R9 270 to have a noticeably larger impact on your yearly electricity bills than the Radeon R9 270.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon R9 270 MSI Gaming 2GB Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class Radeon R9 270.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "TwinFrozr", which reduces the card's temperature under load, significantly and with various modes whereas the gaming mode allows a central unit speed of 975MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 3% performance boost over the standard edition.
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.
