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

Radeon R9 270X Sapphire Vapor-X 2GB 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 1050MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 1100MHz. Also, the operating memory clock is now of 1450MHz.
Benchmarks indicate a 3% performance boost over the standard edition and so this card performs on level with a Radeon HD 7950.

Man, I think Pentium G630 2.7GHz will bottleneck R9 270x.

This card is very cool in terms of temperatures when running close to 100%. Mine runs at no more than 60 C after an hour of full load (i have a decent airflow). Also the gan speed is always set to aout and it never passed 30% (very silent).

Wish for X-mas or wait for GTX 960(price:970 is less than 770; 980 is less than 780 so :960 less than 760 and 960 = 270X)

This version runs about 10 degrees celsius cooler than the stock 270x at full load. Highly recommend this one!

Might have difficulty with Windos Vista even with current "working" Drivers 13.12. My computer wouldn't recognize it, and many people had to upgrade to a new OS or had to use a "workaround" to get this card to work. I just RMA'd mine.

I would choose the Viper over this because of its better OC, but right now it has a BF4 coupon with it! Looks like the temps are cooler then most 270x, but other 270x never run hot from what ive seen. Great price for a quality card.
