This card is an AMD / ATI R9 270x with 2GB of VRAM

This is a brand new AMD R9 270x card. It has been flashed to work on the Mac Pro 2008 (MacPro 3,1) - Mac Pro 2012 (MacPro5,1) models.

It has two functional ports, a DVI (Dual Link) and a full size Display Port connector. We provide an adaptor from the DisplayPort to DVI, allowing the use of two DVI displays. On request we can substitute a DisplayPort - Mini DisplayPort adaptor, allowing the use of Mini DisplayPort displays (with the exception of Apple 27in Mini DisplayPort displays, which are not compatible).

This card shows EFI boot screens and OS loading screens on either working port.

Based on the 7xxx Series GPU this card gives a huge boost over the stockcards for both OpenGL and OpenCL functions. Over 4 times faster than our currentupgrade option of the 5770 in most benchmarks.

Better performance still in the 4,1 and 5,1 Mac Pros (2009 - 2012) with upto an 8x improvement in benchmarking over the stock 5770 1GB card.

Some feedback we've had from one of our early customer's for this card:

Good Morning!

Just to let you know that "OMG why didn't I do this before?"

Installed, recognised, working and blistering load, rendering and file speed for graphics!

I've tested it with Vue 2015, Plant Factory, Daz Studio Pro 2015, Poser 2014, Modo 801 and Nuke!. (all 64-bit)

All blistering fast to load & render with little delay response on screen to manipulation.

Warranty: 1 year Return To Base
