Submission + - AMD Radeon R9 280X, 270X, 260X Reviewed (

Vigile writes: Last month AMD publicly shared plans to release a new line of graphics cards including the R9 and R7 series of Radeon GPUs. Today is the first step in that product release with the Radeon R9 280X, R9 270X and R7 260X cards going on sale and being reviewed. PC Perspective has tested all three and compared them to the latest offerings from NVIDIA and found the 280X and 270X to be first class products that offer nearly unparalleled performance per dollar. The $299 Radeon R9 280X is often outperforming the $399 GeForce GTX 770 and the R9 270X at $199 bests the GTX 760 at $249 many times as well. Enthusiasts might be disappointed to learn that all three of these cards use existing silicon previously found in the Radeon HD 7900/7800/7700 series and they will have to wait a bit longer before the hyped AMD Hawaii GPU appears.
