In this review, we will look at the AMD Radeon R7 M270 laptop graphics card, which is positioned as a graphics solution below average. In the new classification of Radeon adapters for laptops, the R7 line occupies a mid-budget position, so it’s not worth talking about the unsurpassed gaming performance of this series video cards.

Like the Radeon HD 8750M, the AMD Radeon R7 M270 is based on the Opal XT / Mars chip (28nm GCN architecture) and includes 384 stream processors, 24 texture units, and 8 ROPs. The core runs at 825 MHz and supports up to 4 GB of DDR3 video memory (1000 MHz, 128-bit bus).

The performance of the Radeon R7 M270 is comparable to graphics cards from Nvidia, Ge Force GT 740M and GT 830M, so demanding games like Crysis 3 will run only at low graphics settings and a resolution of 1366×768 pixels. Medium or high settings will only work in older and less demanding games.
