r7 370 and r9 270 are the same thing pretty much you can even run them both in crossfire. I have an o.c. r7 370 4Gb and i get better fps than with my 270x as well as it has the strix cooling so it stays cold and quiet even under load. But the r7 370 2Gb standard clock vs. the r9 270x? I dont see the 370 winning
I am using 270x as well, Vapor-X Sapphire to be exact. That DX11 difference is such a huge leap.
Guys, the R7 370 is actually a rebrand of the R7 265, not the R9 270... that's why it's got the "R7" label. ._. Ultra misleading name. Moreover, I'm using a R9 270X, so this feels like a slap in the face >.<
Why does the review say both cards are 2gb in gpu specs but 4096mb in memory side specs?
owh i don't know about that,so this must be better if versus with r7 260x
Dude r7 370 is 150$, Defak are you talking about?
defak is this?so r9 270x faster than r7 370?
