Diamond Boost Radeon R9 270X Review

   -   

Diamond Boost Radeon R9 270X Testing:

Temperature testing will be accomplished by loading the video card to 100% using Unigine Heaven Benchmark Version 4.0, with MSI Afterburner overclocking utility for temperature monitoring. I will be using a resolution of 1920x1080 using 8xAA and a five-run sequence to run the test, ensuring that the maximum thermal threshold is reached. The fan speed will be left in the control of the driver package and video card BIOS for the stock load test, with the fan moved to 100% to see the best possible cooling scenario for the overclocked load test. The idle test will involve a twenty-minute cooldown, with the fan speeds left on automatic in the stock speed testing and bumped up to 100% when running overclocked.

 

Settings

  • Monitoring with MSI Afterburner
  • Unigine Heaven 4.0 1920x1080 8x AA
  • 5-run sequence
  • 20-minute idle duration
  • Temperature measured in degrees Celsius

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 
 

 

The cooling solution on the PowerColor Devil R9 270X is a bit larger than that used on the Diamond R9 270X, but Diamond's solution appears to be more efficient when tested. Fan noise at idle is practically non-existent. Ramping the fan speed up lets you know that the card is running wide open, but the noise level is not objectionable by any stretch of the word.
