Gigabyte Intros R9 270X OC 4GB with WindForce 3X Cooler
Gigabyte has announced its R9 270X OC 4 GB, which carries a WindForce 3X cooler.
It seems that many manufacturers are releasing R9 270X graphics cards with 4 GB of graphics memory rather than 2 GB, and Gigabyte is one more manufacturer to join the crowd. Its latest graphics card, the R9 270X OC, with codename GV-R927XOC-4GD, features something the competitors don't – a triple-fan cooler.
The card is built on a non-reference PCB design. The triple-fan cooler is known as the WindForce 3X cooler, and is also featured on various high-end graphics cards from Gigabyte. It is built with three fans, two aluminum fin stacks, as well as a number of heat pipes and a plastic shroud.
Gigabyte has clocked its R9 270X OC 4 GB at 1050 MHz base with a 1100 MHz GPU boost frequency. The memory on the card is clocked at an effective speed of 5.6 GHz.
