The seemingly never-ending onslaught of new graphics cards as of late continues today with the official release of the AMD Radeon R9 270. Like the Radeon R9 270X that came before it, the Radeon R9 270 isn’t a totally new product. This mainstream graphics card actually leverages the same GPU that powered last-year’s Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition. AMD, however, has tweaked the clocks and through software and board level revisions updated the card to allow for more flexible use of its display outputs (using Eyefinity no longer requires the use of a DisplayPort).

Because the Radeon R9 270 isn’t totally new, AMD’s add in board partners are already intimately familiar with the technology as well. And as a result, the majority of Radeon R9 270 cards due to arrive will be custom products that differ from AMD’s reference design. In fact, the Asus Radeon R9 270 Direct CU II, doesn’t resemble AMD’s reference design at all.

you should crossfire this with another R9 270. a $400 pair would be nice to see on how it compares to the $400 single R9 290.
