Today we take a look at the latest addition to the Sapphire R9 family of graphics cards. The R9 270X Toxic Edition follows in the footprints of the class leading R9 280X Toxic Edition which we reviewed last month. Is our review subject worthy of the ‘Toxic’ moniker?
Sapphire have had a lot of success in the last year, releasing some of the finest AMD based solutions to hit retail. We are always a little excited to get our hands on a Toxic Edition card, because they are over engineered with some of the best cooling solutions available to the consumer.
The Sapphire R9 270X Toxic Edition is the fastest R9 270X to grace our labs, with a core overclock to 1,150mhz. Sapphire have also overclocked the GDDR5 memory, to 1,500mhz (6Gbps effective). Available at only £179.99 inc vat – is this the most cost effective graphics card you can buy today?
