Gigabyte Releases Three R9 200 Series BF4-Edition Cards

Gigabyte has released three special editions of its R9 200 series cards, namely versions of the card that come with keys for Battlefield 4 downloads through Origin.

The three cards that come with the key are the GV-R928XOC-3GD-GA, which is a Radeon R9-280X, the GV-R927XOC-2GD-GA, which is a Radeon R9-270X, and the GV-R927OC-2GD-GA, which is a lightly overclocked (50 MHz) R9-270.

Both the X-rated cards feature Gigabyte's triple fan WindForce coolers, which are capable of dissipating up to 450 W of heat, while the R9 270 features a dual-fan WindForce cooler.

Sorry, no WindForce cooled Radeon R9 290 or R9 290X just yet.

There was no word on pricing or availability, but expect a small premium over standard versions of the cards.

    man, those GPU names: GV-R928XOC-3GD-GA

    I know what it is, but do you really expect the average joe to remember that?

    Are AMD really still shooting themselves in the foot with such terrible coolers for the 290 and 290X??

    No! Nobody wants the blender strapped onto a GPU! Let the partners with good coolers come in for crying out loud! I would be tempted to swap back to team red had they done it off the bat, I guess they just hate money!

    I have the XFX R9 280X. Came from the very beginning with BF4, costs $300 (no premium), and is quiet and cool. Don't see why anyone would buy anything else to be honest.
