AMD Radeon R9 M270X: specs and benchmarks
AMD started Radeon R9 M270X sales 21 March 2014. This is GCN 1.0 architecture desktop card based on 28 nm manufacturing process and primarily aimed at office use. 4 GB of GDDR5 memory clocked at 1.13 GHz are supplied, and together with 128 Bit memory interface this creates a bandwidth of 72 GB/s.
Compatibility-wise, this is card attached via PCIe 3.0 x16 interface.
It provides poor gaming and benchmark performance at 4.54 percent of a leader's which is AMD Radeon RX 6900 XT.
Of Radeon R9 M270X's architecture, market type and release date.
Radeon R9 M270X's general performance parameters such as number of shaders, GPU base clock, manufacturing process, texturing and calculation speed. These parameters indirectly speak of Radeon R9 M270X's performance, but for precise assessment you have to consider its benchmark and gaming test results.
Compatibility, dimensions and requirements
Information on Radeon R9 M270X's compatibility with other computer components. Useful when choosing a future computer configuration or upgrading an existing one. For desktop video cards it's interface and bus (motherboard compatibility), additional power connectors (power supply compatibility).
Parameters of memory installed on Radeon R9 M270X: its type, size, bus, clock and resulting bandwidth. Note that GPUs integrated into processors don't have dedicated memory and use a shared part of system RAM.
Video outputs and ports
Types and number of video connectors present on Radeon R9 M270X. As a rule, this section is relevant only for desktop reference video cards, since for notebook ones the availability of certain video outputs depends on the laptop model.
Technological solutions and APIs supported by Radeon R9 M270X. You'll probably need this information if you need some particular technology for your purposes.

Non-gaming benchmark performance of Radeon R9 M270X. Note that overall benchmark performance is measured in points in 0-100 range.
This is our combined benchmark performance rating. We are regularly improving our combining algorithms, but if you find some perceived inconsistencies, feel free to speak up in comments section, we usually fix problems quickly.
This is probably the most ubiquitous benchmark, part of Passmark PerformanceTest suite. It gives the graphics card a thorough evaluation under various load, providing four separate benchmarks for Direct3D versions 9, 10, 11 and 12 (the last being done in 4K resolution if possible), and few more tests engaging DirectCompute capabilities.
Let's see how good Radeon R9 M270X is for gaming. Particular gaming benchmark results are measured in frames per second. Comparisons with game system requirements are included, but remember that sometimes official requirements may reflect reality inaccurately.
This video card matches 74% minimum and 63% recommended requirements of all games known to us.
