Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 4GB OC Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 4GB OC Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 270X.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "Vapor-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 1020MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 1070MHz.
Furthermore, the card has twice as much memory when compared to the reference card. However, this card will not benefit from extra memory and thus such feature ends up being useless.
Expect little or no performance boost over the standard edition and exactly the same performance as "Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Dual-X 2GB OC Edition"

A bit, in processor-heavy games or benchmarks. It's not a huge step up from what you've got now though.

Generally anything under 70 C is OK for this card. Anything over that will reduce its lifespan considerably. You should be worrying at 90 plus.

Hi there! Do you guys think I should crossfire this card or wait for AMD's response to the cheap 970/980? Upgrading to either will require a new mobo and PSU.
