A Closer Look

The AMD Radeon R9 270X uses a new cooling solution design. It is a mix of the old and the new. You’ve got an old blower style fan but that comes encased in an all-new shroud design.

That new shroud design uses a vibrant “volcanic” red to enhance the red features of the R9 270X card.

The rear of the R9 270X uses a black PCB and the usual AMD cooler mounting backplate.

The end is enclosed with the exception of small inlet that intakes air.

The card is bang on the money for a dual slot thickness design.

The R9 270X uses two 6 pin PCI connectors. Some AMD partner designs may come with an 8 pin and a 6 pin if they’ve got beefy overclocks.

There’s an additional vented area by the CrossFire connector, the R9 270X only supports two way CrossFire like the HD 7870 did.

The bottom is fully enclosed to ensure the blower style fan can exhaust at the rear of the card.

Dual DVI,  DisplayPort and HDMI top off connectivity. AMD has revised the Eyefinity on the RX 2XX series so you can run six displays off the below configuration. A DP connector is no longer needed for each trio of screens. In fact the below configuration runs six displays if you use an MST hub for the DisplayPort output.
