How well can the Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition run games
Getting one of these Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB 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.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition. In particular this is looking at the Ultra graphics settings to see what sort of FPS this graphics card can get across some of the more popular games played in 2019. In comparison to the game recommended requirements of the 1000 most demanding games played today this PC hardware can run 148.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We are seeing The Outer Worlds getting 16FPS with the Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare getting 8FPS and Ghost Recon Breakpoint getting 7frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

One of the growing popular screen resolutions for PC gaming is the wider 1440p. So we wanted to see how well the Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at The Outer Worlds and saw it deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 31 FPS, Medium: 25 FPS, High: 17 FPS and Ultra: 12 FPS. We then checked the performance on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare to see if that runs well. It was weak with a 6 FPS at Ultra 1440p. Running games at 1440p with a Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition is unable to perform adequately across modern games at this increased resolution.

How many years will the Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition in your PC? We think this Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition has around 6-12 months until an upgrade should be considered.

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition? A good choice when looking to upgrade the Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Ti EVGA XC Gaming 6GB which meets 923 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 149% better performance. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the RX 5000 Series Radeon RX 5500 4GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 81% better and can run 728 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.

You won't get a bottleneck in most games, you may get a bottleneck in CPU intensive games though.

No it won't.
But it isn't worth it to upgrade from a R9 270 to a R9 270X.
Wait for them new GPUs , or consider a higher upgrade :)
