Sapphire Dual-X R9 270 Graphics Card Review

Sapphire-Dual-R9-270-01

One of the most upgraded items in a PC is the Graphics Card. If your PC is older or you are a gamer you know that this is where you can normally see a instant return on your money.  But the question most people ask is what card do I choose? Do you need to reach deep into your pockets for a $500 card or will a more affordable one do the trick? Like most people I tend to go for a nice mid-range card to get the job done. The Sapphire Dual-x R9 270 is a card that you can grab at a low cost and see a nice improvement over your older video card.

In the past Sapphire used a woman called Ruby to grab your attention on the box, but this time around a bright purple with some sort of robot is used. What will really grab you attention is all the information that is given to you and boasting the Dual-X cooling solution, OC, GCN architecture, AMD Eyefinity and more.

Once out of the outer box we dive into where the Sapphire Dual-X R9 270 is kept. As it should be it keep securely in place and protected in a anti-static bag.

Under the card is another box that contains all the accessories such as the CrossFire ribbon, DVI to VGA convertor, power convertor cable, and a HDMI High Speed Cable. Course you get all the other normal stuff like the driver and software CD, manual, and other misc literature.
