The GIGABYTE Windforce series of graphics cards have long been held in the highest regard here at Vortez thanks to the supreme cooling ability along with the factory overclocks applied to each card they produce. Of course, GIGABYTE also supply reference designed cards which are a little cheaper but we feel the extra few pounds it costs for the card to arrive on your doorstep factory overclocked and complete with one of the best aftermarket cooling designs is well worth the extra.
The AMD R9-270X has some very stiff competition in this highly contested market space because for the £159 GIGABYTE are asking for their R9-270X Windforce 3x graphics card, the options are varied from not only GIGABYTE's direct competitors who also have their own versions of the R9-270X but also from the NVIDIA GTX760, itself a very capable card for not a lot more money. Today however we will be concentrating our efforts on the AMD card which in reference format received our silver and value awards. Today, we will see if the GIGABYTE version can better this result.
