AMD Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition Crossfire
10 Aug 2021 - Graphics card reviewed

This Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition Crossfire graphics card is considered budget with poor modern game performance when playing anything more demanding than indie game requirements.

This card meets game requirements up to DirectX 11.

What FPS performance can the Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition Crossfire get on latest AAA 2021 games? In particular our game review looks at the FPS achieved running on Ultra graphics settings on the 1080p screen resolution as well as 1440p and 4K. We look at 1000 of the most demanding games available today and this GPU is better than the recommended graphics requirement of more than 313 games in the list.

With 1080p being the most common gaming resolution at the moment we explored how well the Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition Crossfire can run Dying Light 2 at 1080p and predict it will return weak frame rates at the following graphics settings - Low: 53 FPS, Medium: 42 FPS, High: 28 FPS and Ultra: 20 FPS. For performance contrast we can see that Days Gone returns a playable 44 FPS at Ultra 1080p.

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 Crossfire performed at 1440p by taking a look at some of the current popular games. First we looked at Dying Light 2 and predict it will deliver weak frames per second across the following graphics settings - Low: 40 FPS, Medium: 32 FPS, High: 21 FPS and Ultra: 15 FPS. We then checked the performance on Days Gone to see if that runs well. It was playable with a 34 FPS at Ultra 1440p. After a look at the popular games running at 1440p with the Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition Crossfire, this is not going to be able to keep stable frame rates at all times at Ultra 1440p on modern games.

How many years will the Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition Crossfire graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition Crossfire in your PC? 12-18 months of top end gaming is still left in this graphics card

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition Crossfire? Are you looking to upgrade a Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition Crossfire? Then we would suggest getting a 30 Series GeForce RTX 3050 Ti, as it can run 976 of the top 1000 demanding game requirements today with 79% increased graphics performance. Alternatively a good choice when looking to upgrade the Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 2GB Edition Crossfire would be the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 64 8GB which meets 967 of the 1000 top game’s recommended system requirements and has 71% better performance.
