In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon RX 570X 4GB are significantly better than the AMD Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition.

The RX 570X has a 68 MHz higher core clock speed and 48 more Texture Mapping Units than the R9 270X. This results in the RX 570X providing 61.5 GTexel/s better texturing performance. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The RX 570X has a 68 MHz higher core clock speed than the R9 270X and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the RX 570X providing 2.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The RX 570X was released over three years more recently than the R9 270X, and so the RX 570X is likely to have far better driver support, meaning it will be much more optimized and ultimately superior to the R9 270X when running the latest games.

Both GPUs exhibit very powerful performance, so it probably isn't worth upgrading from one to the other, as both are capable of running even the most demanding games at the highest settings.

The RX 570X has 2048 MB more video memory than the R9 270X, so is likely to be much better at displaying game textures at higher resolutions. This is supported by the fact that the RX 570X also has superior memory performance overall.

The RX 570X has 32 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the R9 270X, which means that the memory performance of the RX 570X is noticeably better than the R9 270X.

The Radeon RX 570X 4GB has 2048 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition has 1280. However, the actual shader performance of the RX 570X is 2548 and the actual shader performance of the R9 270X is 1251. The RX 570X having 1297 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the RX 570X delivers a massively smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the R9 270X.

The RX 570X transistor size technology is 14 nm (nanometers) smaller than the R9 270X. This means that the RX 570X is expected to run slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the R9 270X.

The Radeon RX 570X 4GB requires 120 Watts to run and the Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition requires 180 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 450 Watts for the RX 570X and a PSU with at least 500 Watts for the R9 270X. The R9 270X requires 60 Watts more than the RX 570X to run. The difference is significant enough that the R9 270X may have an adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the RX 570X.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewOverview
The new AMD Radeon RX 500X series are an OEM version of the current RX 500 series. This RX 570X graphics card is one of the higher performance models from the new AMD Radeon RX 500X Series.

The AMD RX 570X 4GB graphics card released in April 2018 as an AMD performance gaming graphics card. This card competes against Nvidia's GTX 1050 Ti. As a Polaris refresh, the RX 570X runs at a slightly faster clock speed than the RX 470.
The specs of the Radeon RX 500X series graphics cards are identical to the standard Radeon RX 500 series.
Architecture
It is powered by the 14nm Pollaris 20 GPU, which has 2048 shader processing units, 128 TMUs and 32 ROPs.

GPU
The central unit runs at 1168MHz and goes up to 1244MHz, when the boost mode is triggered.

Memory
The RX570X comes with a 4GB frame buffer of GDDR5, through a 256-bit memory interface, while the memory clock operates at 1750MHz.

Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.

Performance
The AMD RX 570X has been built as a Mid/High performance graphics card for 2018. It will run most triple AAA titles released during 2018 on medium to high graphics at 1080p screen resolution. Performance is exactly the same as the Radeon RX 570. With adjustments and lowering anti aliasing this RX570 4GB card can confidently maintain 60+ frames per seconds on high graphic settings at 1080p. Moving to 1440p screen resolution and the graphics card may need to be adjusted down to medium in order to maintain 50-60+ fps.

System Suggestions
The RX 570X is best suited for resolutions up to and including 1920x1080. We recommend a mid range Ryzen 5 processor and at least 8GB of system memory for optimal gaming performance from the RX 570X.
Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Toxic 2GB OC Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 270X.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "Tri-X", which reduces the card's temperature under load, significantly and comes overclocked out of the box in the central unit that was increased from 1000MHz to 1100MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 1150MHz. Also, the operating memory clock is now of 1500MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 5% performance boost over the standard edition and so this card will surpass a Radeon HD 7950.
