MSI miniaturizes the R9 270X


Mini, but mighty



MSI, a global leader in motherboards, graphics adapters, and much more has recently announced a redux of the popular R9 270X Radeon graphics card that will cater to the growing Mini-ITX crowd. With a great performance/price ratio, cooling ability, and an impressive lineup of supported gaming apps, the R9 270X GAMING 2G ITX is sure to be a champion for MSI.


MSI’s all new R9 270X GAMING 2G ITX is the latest addition to the MSI GAMING line-up and a perfect companion to the latest Intel® and AMD Mini-ITX motherboards. At just 17 centimeters the card is fully featured and surprisingly cool and silent given its size and performance. This is thanks to the MSI RADAX fan solution, a true Hybrid Radial/Axial fan that combines the best of both worlds and reduces temperatures up to 30%. This is one of the consistent elements of MSI’s GAMING Graphics Cards which all give you more performance while reducing temperatures and noise.

The new MSI GAMING App allows you to instantly overclock your MSI GAMING Graphics Card and MSI GAMING Motherboards, while you can video capture  and stream in high quality with XSplit Gamecaster and MSI Predator. Military Class 4 components provide excellent stability and lifetime and the RADAX fan keeps your card running at low noise and full speed all day.

The MSI R9 270X GAMING 2G ITX, combined with a variety of MSI GAMING motherboards in Mini-ITX provide a unique, rich gaming experience optimized for today’s online and socialized gaming world while offering amazing thermal and acoustic performance in the mini-ITX form factor.
