HD 7870 2GB or R9 270X DC 2 TOP 2GB

I'm confused between these two graphics cards.

  1. The ASUS GRAPHICS CARD R9 270X DC 2 TOP 2GB DDR5 is better.

    The cards are mostly similar, however the R9 270x is newer and also has a 100MHz faster clock rate.
  2. Go for R9 270X... its 10% faster than 7870

    And Asus one has better cooler design which is an added bonus..
  3. both are almost same inside . . but i will suggest 270x .better in term of technology . .

    They are identical if you consider the technology used.
  5. They're identical mechanically and the R9 270X is just a rebadge with slightly different clocks. Get whatever is cheaper or the brand you prefer.

    Never go for the R9 270X its more expensive when you can buy the R9 270 version for cheaper and overclock it to get the same performance.

    I have the Asus DC II R9 270. Its overclocked at max from 975 core to 1175 mhz core. Not worht the extra $30 for a less than 1% increase in performance of R9 270X

    ok im here to corrent this once and for all since you are getting the wrong answers left and right.

    the sapphire card is a 7870xt, also known as the 7870le, it is a "tahiti" chip, NOT a "pitcairn". there is a pretty big difference here.

    the asus is a 270x, just a rebranded 7870 full pitcairn gpu with 1280 streams.

    the sapphire is noticably faster than the asus because it is a highly gimped tahiti gpu which is the same gpu found in the 7950/7970/r9-280/r9-280x. it has 1536 stream processors based on the tahiti architecture which is faster than pitcairn.

    anybody who knows anything about video cards would rather game with a tahiti than a pitcairn. if they are the same price, get the sapphire easy.
