Gigabyte Radeon R9 270X OC Video Card Review

Catzilla

Catzilla is a relatively new benchmark that is made the Polish demoscene group Plasticis. It is being produced in collaboration with Polish post production company, Plastige. Plastige is the company that worked on Witcher 2 Enhanced Edition and some of the developers there were behind the PlayStation Network game Datura. The benchmark uses a parallel graphics engine that takes advantage of multi-core CPUs. This isn’t a benchmark being made in some kids basement and it doesn’t appear to be bought off by any companies yet, so it should be a good benchmark to use.

While this benchmark is in beta phases, we still have found that Catzilla is a good cross-API benchmark. You also can’t go wrong with a benchmark that has a giant animated cat nuke cities with its laser eyes as you do. You can watch a video of the benchmark in action below.

We purchased Catzilla Advanced and ran the full Catzilla benchmark at 2560×1440.

    Ironic how I just pushed the memory clock with 1550 mhz, you guys didn’t even touch the power control settings, I pushed it up to +2.

      Looks like you got a good OC’ing card! No two cards are identical and the memory on our sample didn’t like being overclocked. It happens.

        Sorry about that, just realised my model number is different, it’s actually a : (No idea what the GA stands for.)
        GV-R927XOC-2GD-GA

        • blah

          GA simply means game, which means that your card came with BF4.

  • basroil

    Higher idle power than the 7870 it replaces? That’s not cool.

      Indeed. I read about it everywhere. It’s the main downpoint for this “rebranding”
