We took AMD’s $300 Radeon R9 280X for a spin last week and were left quite impressed overall with the results, versus the GTX 760. Will we get the same sort of reaction with the company’s Radeon R9 270X? With the help of NVIDIA’s ~$175 GeForce GTX 660, we’re going to find that out.
After putting AMD’s Radeon R9 280X through the ringer against NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 760 last week, we discovered that AMD had established itself as the bang-for-the-buck leader at that given $250~$300 pricepoint.
In this article, we’ll be taking a look at a similar matchup, but at a different pricepoint: $200. The cards in question are AMD’s Radeon R9 270X and NVIDIA’s GeForce GTX 660. At AMD’s launch last week, both cards retailed for $199; post-launch, NVIDIA dropped its pricing by $20~25. This should be interesting.
