XFX announced its Radeon R9 270 (non-X) Double Dissipation graphics card, which features a compacted version of the company's signature cooling solution. The card appears to use a PCB design that's not much different from that of its R9 270X graphics card. The card sticks to AMD reference clock speeds of 900 MHz core, 925 MHz PowerTune boost, and 5.60 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. Based on the 28 nm "Curacao" silicon, the R9 270 packs 1,280 stream processors, 80 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface, holding 2 GB of memory on this card. XFX is pricing it at $179.99.
