Review: Gigabyte GV-R927XOC-2GD Radeon graphics card

A worthwhile mid-range card for gaming

None

Gigabyte is back with another Radeon based card targeting the mid-range gaming space. The vendor has gained a reputation for focusing on energy efficiency and cooling of its video cards over pure performance, and this approach has carried over to the GV-R927XOC, which attempts to pack a decent amount of processing power under its proprietary cooling setup.

Caution, wide load

At the heart of the card is an AMD Radeon R9 270X GPU with a core clock of 1000 MHz that has the potential to be boosted to 1050 MHz. The GV-R927XOC is also fitted with 2GB of GDDR5 memory at a clock speed of 5600 MHz.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
