AMD Radeon R9 280X / R9 270X from ASUS and MSI review: R9 in practice

Four new AMD Radeon R9 cards tested



Two days ago AMD introduced the new Radeon R9 280X, R9 270X and R7 260X graphics cards (you can find our review here). Granted, the main 'new' thing about the cards were their names, considering the R9 280X is a different version of the Radeon HD 7970, the R9 270X is an updated version of the HD 7870 and the R7 260X is based on the Radeon HD 7790. AMD's partners were therefore already very familiar with the hardware, so it was easy for them to create new cards based on AMD's latest. ASUS and MSI did not wait long, and sent us a total of four cards. We tested the ASUS R9280X-DC2T-3GD5, MSI R9 280X Gaming, MSI R9 270X Hawk and MSI R9 270X Gaming 2G.

Official prices are still unknown, and these cards go on sale tomorrow.
