    Pretty meh if you ask me. The dual x 7950boost is currently $210 and the 7870XT is currently $180 (both prices do NOT include the $20 rebate).

    $230 is to much considering the 7870xt/7950boost are better values. I was kinda hoping that the rumors of the 270X being a Tahiti 7870 where true

    I was expecting more from this card

    Yeh, this isn't much especially $230. If you get a different brand R9 270X for $200 with as nice(r) I think you're better off. It boils down to the Pitcairn didn't get enough price cut, AMD should've had a $180 MSRP. I mean consider the P-C Devil review was a card not much unlike this and it MSRP was $240 at the end of July, and we all said it held little or no merit! So this now for $10 less?

    This card is awesome for us silence freaks :D

    Just wow at noise results, and temperatures won't skyrocket even with OC.

    She is the queen of 7870/270x without a doubt, I will pay the extra bucks.

    I've got the Gaming version of this card and I must say it's the quietest card I've ever owned. The performance is impressive as well, more than twice as fast as my old GTX 460. As it stands right now, MSI has the best R9 270 implementations on the market. Thanks for the review !

    it's Pitcairn, AMD has never talked about any codenames with the press, and never said it's a new or improved GPU, or that anything has changed.

    how is the card able to have a max power consumption of 245w, though it only has two 6-pin cables and the pci-e slot ( 3 * 75w = 225w max ) ?
