I got a new Card to benchmark today and will share the details here, its ASUS Radeon R9 270x DirectCU II Top 2GB, Let’s check out the Graphic.
• DirectCU II with precision-shaped SSU heatpipes utilizes highly-conductive copper and directly-centered GPU placement to double cooling efficiency in the same space.
• TOP-selected 1120MHz cores run 70MHz higher than reference for smoother gameplay.
• DIGI+ VRM with 8-phase Super Alloy Power delivers precise digital power for superior efficiency, reliability, and performance.
• GPU Tweak helps you modify clock speeds, voltages, fan performance and more, all via an intuitive interface

Inside the box I found Driver DVD, a Manual, 2x 4pin to single 8Pin PCI Express power Cable and a CrossfireX Bridge Cable.
ASUS R9 280X DirectCU II TOP got Dual 80mm Fans to cool down the heatsink with five copper heat pipes, the card Dimensions are 10.7 ” x 5.24 ” x 1.578 ” Inch.
Back Side View
The Custom Made PCB Doesn’t have Black plate.
You can see here the heat sink got 3 heatpipes visible from the top side and 2 from the other side that’s faces to the motherboard when the card is installed on the motherboard.
The card can do up to Dual CrossfireX
It requires 2x 6pin power cable in order to run the card
The card have 2x DVI Ports, 1x HDMI and 1x Display port.
A closer look on the Memory chipset which is shows that’s it’s by ‘Elpida’, and carry the model number EDW2032BBBG-6A-F. They are specified to run at 1500 MHz (6000 MHz GDDR5 effective) using VDD of 1.6v, ASUS ran the Memory on this Card to 5600MHz which is 400MHz lower than the spec.
Test Benchmark setup:
• 3DMark : Ice Storm
• 3DMark : Cloud Gate
• 3DMark : Fire Strike
• 3DMark : Fire Strike EXTREME
• 3DMark 11
• 3Dmark Vantage
• Sniper Elite V2
• Metro 2033
• Hitman: Absolution
• BIOSHOCK INIFITI
• Tomb Rider (2013)
• Sleeping Dogs
• Alien VS Predator
• GRID 2
Overclocking & Temperatures :
using ASUS GPU Tweak to overclock the card to get the GPU Boost Core Clock up to 1200 MHz Stable and Memory Speed at 6100 MHz by adjusting the power Limit to 120 % in GPU Tweak and Voltage Adjustments to 1.25v which took little time to figure out the stable clocks, after that I used Furmark for 15 min stress bench to make sure that the clock speeds are quite stable while the Card on Auto Fan speed and the Temperatures on Idle were 30 c using Auto Fan control and 65 c on load..
