Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 4GB Edition Game Requirement Analysis

Radeon R9 270X MSI Gaming 4GB Edition is a special edition of the high-end Radeon R9 270X.
This edition comes with a custom cooling 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 1030MHz, while the Boost clock is now of 1120MHz.
Furthermore, the frame buffer was doubled to 4GB though this will not boost its performance and can be addressed as a gimmick - marketing to lure consumers into paying more for the same product.
Benchmarks indicate a 3% performance boost over the standard edition and so this card will surpass a Radeon HD 7950.
