R9 270X or 7870?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm planing on build a budget pc for my brother. Right now I'm not too sure of what to get  r9 270x  or 7870? 


R9 270x - ~$199.99 and it comes with BF4

7870 - ~$199.99 --> ~$149.99 with $50 off or mail and rebate


From what I know the r9 270x and 7870 are about the same performance. I'm currently leaning toward R9 270x because it is about the same price or a little better with BF4 included and it has mantle supported (which I really hoping would be something amazing) but several people said the card is not really that worth it.




-Thank you for your time.

BF4 is not really big, I think the 7870 has a bronze never settle, not sure

Remember the 270 and the 270x are just a rebranded 7870 GHz Edition. Get whatever is cheaper.


Mantle is currently supported or all GCN cards such as the 7000 series and the recent 200 series.


If you are going to get a 270x, get a 270 instead, the 270 is pretty much a cheaper 270x with a lower clock speed.
