Gigabyte hopped onto the Radeon R9 270 bandwagon with a card based on its slim WindForce 2X cooling solution, the GV-R9270OC-2GD. This factory-overclocked card uses the company's triangle-cool heatsink that's ventilated by a pair of 100 mm spinners, strapped onto a black Ultra Durable VGA+ PCB. The card offers factory-overclocked speeds of 950 MHz core, 975 MHz boost, and 5.60 GHz (GDDR5-effective) memory. Based on the 28 nm "Curacao" silicon, the R9 270 features 1,280 stream processors, 80 TMUs, 32 ROPs, and a 256-bit wide GDDR5 memory interface.
