AMD Radeon R9 270X Crossfire Performance Review

This Radeon R9 270X Crossfire graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

Here is a quick game performance synopsis for the AAA games played in 2022. In particular we focus on how well the Radeon R9 270X Crossfire runs at Ultra graphics settings and what frames per second it is getting at 1080p, 1440p and 4K monitor resolutions. In terms of performance against the most demanding games today this graphics card can play 309 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the Radeon R9 270X Crossfire shows us that Far Cry 6 is getting a weak result of 12 FPS, and then we are seeing Battlefield 2042 returning a weak 0 FPS while another game on our list is the Forza Horizon 5 which is getting 35 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran Battlefield 2042 on the Radeon R9 270X Crossfire to see that it got a weak set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 0FPS, M: 0FPS, H: 0FPS, U: 0FPS. Another popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Forza Horizon 5 which seemed playable in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 26 FPS. Finally we then took a look at Far Cry 6 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were weak at 9 FPS. Gaming at 1440p with the Radeon R9 270X Crossfire is not powerful enough to deal with the increased resolution.

How many years will the Radeon R9 270X Crossfire graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 270X Crossfire in your PC? Our current calculations suggest a graphics card upgrade will be required in around 12-18 months

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon R9 270X Crossfire? Upgrading this graphics card would have us consider the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB which is 21% more powerful. This upgrade choice can also run 616 games from the most demanding games today. An alternative great upgrade graphics card would be a R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB, which has 76% better performance and can run 961 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today.
