How well can the Radeon R9 270X Gigabyte 4GB OC Edition Crossfire run games
2 Aug 2020 - Graphics card reviewed

While some games have more powerful requirements than this GPU, the Radeon R9 270X Gigabyte 4GB OC Edition Crossfire is only really challenged by the most demanding games released today, but normally it is more than capable of running games with a stable frame rate at 1080p. Capable of running games with up to a DirectX 11 requirement.

Here we take a closer look at the various performances across 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions for the Radeon R9 270X Gigabyte 4GB OC Edition Crossfire. 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 2020. This graphics hardware can run 192 of the 1000 most demanding PC games played today.

The 1080p FPS on Ultra for the Radeon R9 270X Gigabyte 4GB OC Edition Crossfire shows us that Grand Theft Auto VI is predicted to get a weak result of 12 FPS, and then we are seeing Halo Infinite predicted to return a weak 22 FPS while another game on our list is the Horizon: Zero Dawn which is getting 44 frames per second at Ultra 1080p.

We move on to 1440p, and predict that Halo Infinite will deliver weak FPS results. Here are the graphic presets - Low: 44 FPS, Medium: 35 FPS, High: 23 FPS and Ultra: 17 FPS. Next we have Horizon: Zero Dawn running on Radeon R9 270X Gigabyte 4GB OC Edition Crossfire which gets L: 89FPS, M: 70FPS, H: 47FPS, U: 34FPS. And for performance contrast the popular Grand Theft Auto VI is predicted to get L: 24FPS, M: 19FPS, H: 13FPS, U: 9FPS at 1440p. Getting popular modern games to run at 1440p on the Radeon R9 270X Gigabyte 4GB OC Edition Crossfire is not a first choice gaming resolution. While this graphics card would likely be more suited to 1080p gaming, you may be able to make some graphical tweaks in the game options to improve your stability at 1440p.
