Radeon R9 270 Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R9 270 Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition is a special edition of the fast-middle-class Radeon R9 270.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "Dual-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 900MHz to 920MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 945MHz.
Expect little or no performance boost over the standard edition.

Been running this card for awhile at GPU clock 1000MHz and Memory clocked at 1450MHz - had no problems (AMD Crimson Overdrive). Nice little free extra performance. I can get the stream vr test down to 20% - still not good enough for VR.
