Footnotes

Additional hardware (e.g. Blu-ray drive, HD or 10-bit monitor, USB 3.0 ports, TV tuner, wirelessly enabled HDTV) and/or software (e.g. multimedia applications) are required for the full enablement of some features. HD Video display requires an HD video source.  Not all features may be supported on all components or systems - check with your component or system manufacturer for specific model capabilities and supported technologies.
  1. AMD CrossFire™ technology requires an AMD CrossFire Ready motherboard and may require a specialized power supply and AMD CrossFire Bridge Interconnect. Check with your component or system manufacturer for specific model capabilities.
  2. AMD PowerTune and AMD ZeroCore Power are technologies offered by certain AMD Radeon™ products, which are designed to intelligently manage GPU power consumption in response to certain GPU load conditions. Not all products feature all technologies – check with your component or system manufacturer for specific model capabilities.
  3. AMD Eyefinity technology supports multiple monitors on an enabled graphics card. Supported display quantity, type and resolution vary by model and board design; confirm specifications with manufacturer before purchase. To enable more than three displays, or multiple displays from a single output, additional hardware such as DisplayPort™-ready monitors or DisplayPort 1.2 MST-enabled hubs may be required.  A maximum of two active adapters is recommended for consumer systems. See www.amd.com/eyefinityfaq for full details.
  4. Application support for Mantle is required.
  5. AMD App Acceleration is a set of technologies designed to improve video quality and enhance application performance. Full enablement of some features requires support for OpenCL™, DirectCompute or DirectX® Video Acceleration (DXVA). Not all products have all features and full enablement of some capabilities and may require complementary products.
  6. AMD CrossFire™ technology requires an AMD CrossFire Ready motherboard and may require a specialized power supply and AMD CrossFire Bridge Interconnect. Check with your component or system manufacturer for specific model capabilities.
  7. AMD PowerTune and AMD ZeroCore Power are technologies offered by certain AMD Radeon™ products, which are designed to intelligently manage GPU power consumption in response to certain GPU load conditions. Not all products feature all technologies – check with your component or system manufacturer for specific model capabilities.
  8. AMD HD3D is a technology designed to enable stereoscopic 3D support in games, movies and/or photos. Requires 3D stereo drivers, glasses, and display. Not all features may be supported on all components or systems – check with your component or system manufacturer for specific model capabilities and supported technologies. A list of supported stereoscopic 3D hardware is available at https://www.amd.com/HD3D.
  9. Requires 4K display and content. Supported resolution varies by GPU model and board design; confirm specifications with manufacturer before purchase.
  10. AMD TrueAudio technology is offered by select AMD Radeon™ R9 and R7 200 Series GPUs and is designed to improve acoustic realism. Requires enabled game or application. Not all audio equipment supports all audio effects; additional audio equipment may be required for some audio effects. Not all products feature all technologies — check with your component or system manufacturer for specific capabilities.

AMD Radeon R9 270 Graphics Card Packs a 1080p Gaming Punch

Powered by Graphics Core Next (GCN) Architecture and Bolstered by Industry-Acclaimed Mantle API, the AMD Radeon R9 270 GPU Is Built for HD Gaming With High Quality Settings
SUNNYVALE, CA — (Marketwired) — 11/13/13 — AMD (NYSE: AMD) today launched the AMD Radeon™ R9 270 graphics card, the newest addition to the award-winning AMD Radeon™ R9 Series GPUs, an impressive family of GPUs that mark a new era of PC gaming. The AMD Radeon™ R9 270 GPU joins the AMD Radeon™ R9 270X, R9 280X, R9 290 and R9 290X graphics cards, all designed for enthusiast gamers who expect next-generation hardware that can shatter the boundaries of realism and performance.

“The AMD Radeon R9 270 GPU continues AMD’s tradition of delivering world-class performance, features and multi-monitor support at an incredible value,” said Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager, Graphics Business Unit, AMD. “With Mantle, exceptional performance and ultimate gaming experiences are synonymous with AMD Radeon R7 and R9 Series graphics cards. Once again, AMD proves that Radeon™ is gaming.”

Based on AMD’s award-winning Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture, the AMD Radeon R9 270 graphics card is further enhanced by Mantle, an industry-acclaimed technology developed by AMD to enable today’s top game developers to harness the GCN-powered cores of both PCs and consoles. Mantle delivers a streamlined development process and games enabled with Mantle will be able to speak the native language of the GCN architecture, benefiting from hardware optimization that unlocks revolutionary performance and image quality.

The AMD Radeon R9 270 graphics card is ideal for gamers looking to play the latest games at 1080p with high settings. A single power connector and 150W TDP also make it ideal for users with longer upgrade cycles that are looking to squeeze more life out of their current gaming rig.

Additional features of the AMD Radeon R9 270 graphics cards include:

  • 1,280 stream processing units
  • Up to 925MHz engine clock
  • 2GB GDDR5 memory
  • Up to 1.4 GHz (5.6Gbps) memory clock speed
  • 179.2 GB/s memory bandwidth (maximum)
