Several manufacturers prepare for the upcoming CES 2014 and it seems as if MSI has got its hands all full with a range of products falling under the Gaming lineup that need some introducing on the much awaited event. MSI preparing to launch the Radeon R9 270X Gaming ITX and Radeon R9 280X Gaming with 6 GB VRAM.
Soon after MSI set foot in the Gaming lineup, they have not known a stop and they have continued with their release of newer products for instance the Z87I Gaming M-ITX motherboard and GTX 760 Gaming ITX graphics card. We are looking forward to the two newer additions which will form part of this lineup. These are going to include the ITX form factor product and a higher memory buffer graphics card for all those gamers who like to spend their gaming time with higher resolutions and better quality.
Talking about the MSI Radeon R9 270X Gaming ITX, it is the first ITX form factor card which is based on the AMD GPU. Some might think that performance will be sacrificed due to the form factor but this is not the case since the card has been equipped with MSI’s Radax cooling design and there is absolutely no compromise when it comes to performance. The Radeon R9 270X Gaming ITX has been based on the Curacao XT core which comes along with 1280 Stream processors. It has a GDDR5 memory of 2 GB which runs across a 256-bit interface and has been clocked at 5.6 GHz. It is powered by the dual 6-Pin power connector configuration. Talking about the cooling features, the Radax implementation has already been featured on the GTX 760 ITX and has higher levels of performance.
The MSI Radeon R9 280X 6 GB as you can guess will feature 6GB of VRAM! This is not the first time this has happened with a Tahiti-powered card. Sapphire’s HD 7970 Toxic was one such card. The card will feature the Tahiti XT chip with 2048 SPs, 1000 MHz base, 1050 MHz boost and a 6000 MHz (effective) memory clock. It will also have MSI’s Twin Frozr IV cooling solution. This card will be great for users who are planning on gaming at resolutions over 1440p.
