How well can the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition run games
13 Aug 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

Getting one of these Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition graphics cards allows the gamer to run indie system requirements and some less demanding AAA titles. In today’s PC hardware terms these are considered middle range for gaming performance. All games with system requirements of DirectX 11 or lower are met by this card.

Game performance for the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition where we look at the bigger games played in 2019. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 118 games in the list.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing FIFA 20 getting 80FPS with the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition, Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip getting 6FPS and eFootball PES 2020 getting 36frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Moving screen sizes up to 1440p we ran FIFA 20 on the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition to see that it got a good set of frame rates. Here are the low to ultra results at 1440p - L: 137FPS, M: 114FPS, H: 84FPS, U: 61FPS. Other popular game to test at 1440p with this card was Zombieland: Double Tap - Road Trip which seemed good in performance netting an Ultra FPS of 5 FPS. And then took a look at eFootball PES 2020 where its Ultra 1440p Frame rates were good at 27FPS. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition, this is a reasonable choice for most modern games at 1440p, but you may encounter some need to adjust graphics settings down from Ultra to High in some cases to improve gaming stability.

How many years will the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition in your PC? Its time to start researching your next graphics card upgrade as the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition is failing to meet modern day gaming system requirements. A gpu AAA lifespan of around 6-12 months.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 152% better and can meet 920 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively a suitable upgrade choice for the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition is the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB, which is 85% more powerful and can run 722 of the 1000 most demanding PC games beating their recommended requirements.

Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 270X.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "Vapor-X", which reduces the card's temperature under load, significantly and comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was increased from 1000MHz to 1020MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 1070MHz.
Expect little or no performance boost over the standard edition.

An I7 for this GPU is a bit overkill. Your I5 is good enough for most games and good enough for this GPU, no bottleneck whatsoever. Usually an I7 would be recommended for something like a GTX 970/ R9 390 amd other high end GPU's, and even then a good I5 would do the job. You hould however have an I7 f you want to do some activities that require multiple cores, because an I7 uually has 4 core with hypertreading.

Yes it will work with that motherboard.
Min. 500W PSU with 2x 6-pin connectors required.
And yes, it'll bottleneck.
