Radeon R9 280X Sapphire Toxic 3GB OC Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R9 280X Sapphire Toxic 3GB OC Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 280X.
This edition comes with a custom cooling system called "Tri-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 850MHz to 1100MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 1150MHz. Also, the operating memory clock is now of 1600MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 6% performance boost over the standard edition and so this card surpasses a GeForce GTX 770 easily.

Don't buy it, better go for a 770 or whatever Nvidia or directly go for a 290. Most problematic card-got a replacement-still flickering in games. The previous had Artifacts and stretched textures.
