Radeon R9 270 v2 Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
Radeon R9 270 v2 is a Performance Graphics Card based on the first revision of the Graphics Core Next Architecture.


Architecture
The GCN Architecture succeeds the 40nm Terascale Architecture. In addition to being produced with a 28nm Technology, the GCN Architecture adds other Technologies that allow for energy efficiency. For example, ZeroCore Power, a long idle power saving technology, allows the Graphics Cards to shut down by itself when the Monitor is turned off.
GCN also adds Improved Anisotropic Filtering, DirectX 11 Tessellation and the Partially Resident Textures (PRT) Technology, which enables future games to utilize ultra-high resolution textures with the same performance as today's small and often repetitive textures.


GPU
It equips a GPU Codenamed Pitcairn PRO which is was previously used on Radeon HD 7850. It offers 1024 Shader Processing Units, 64 TMUs and 32 ROPs. The central unit runs at 900MHz and goes up to 925MHz, in Turbo Mode.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 2GB frame buffer of fast GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface. The size of the frame buffer is adequate. The Memory Clock Operates at 1400MHz.


Features
DirectX 12.0 Support (11.0 Hardware Default) and support for Crossfire, Mantle, PowerTune, Eyefinity, ZeroCore, HD3D, App Acceleration and other technologies.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 150W, it requires at least a 500W PSU with one available 6-pin connectors.


Performance
Radeon R9 270 v2 is essentially a fast Radeon R7 265. Therefore, its performance stands somewhere between Radeon R7 265 and the faster Radeon R7 270, which has the Full Pitcairn GPU and has 1280 Shader Processing Units.


System Suggestions
We recommend a modest Quad Core Processor (Intel Core i5 Quad Core/AMD FX Quad Core) and 8GB of RAM for a system with Radeon R9 270 v2.
