Gigabyte R9 270X Windforce OC Review

After a delayed release from late 2012 to March 2013, the game received much anticipation and hype. Tomb Raider received much acclaim from critics, who praised the graphics, the gameplay and Camilla Luddington’s performance as Lara with many critics agreeing that the game is a solid and much needed reboot of the franchise. Much criticism went to the addition of the multiplayer which many felt was unnecessary. Tomb Raider went on to sell one million copies in forty-eight hours of its release, and has sold 3.4 million copies worldwide so far.

  1. Well that is beautiful, no doubt about it. excellent card from Gigabyte!

  2. the windforce coolers are great, I have an older windforce card and its quiet as hell.

    Just watch out for dust long term, they do gather a lot, and I find they need cleaned out every 4 -5 months under regular use or performance will be hurt.

  3. If you only have a 1080p monitor I dont see any point in spending more than £180 now.

  4. Ordering this one in the new year. superb for the money

  5. Well I’m more than sure that I’ve made a good investment, my country is hot, arround 36 on summer so a good cooling solution it’s a must have, anyway good investment, good decent card, way more cheaper than nVidia’s a power hungry overheating machine, I’ve hada lot bad experiences with nVidia this is my first AMD-ATI GPU
