ASUS applied a slight facelift to their DirectCU II cooler: It now resembles the model used on the R9 280X and NVIDIA GTX 780 more. Dimensions of the card are 26.5 x 12.5 cm.
Installation requires two slots in your system.
Display connectivity options include two DVI ports, one HDMI port, and one DisplayPort. You may use all outputs at the same time, so triple-monitor surround gaming is possible with one card.
The GPU also includes an HDMI sound device. It is HDMI 1.4a compatible, which includes HD audio and Blu-ray 3D movies support.
One CrossFire connector allows you to combine up to two R9 270X cards in a CrossFire configuration.
