Hello there
I am thinking of buying the 280x but the problem is the I dont see reviews for the card ,no one is talking about it ,not like the gtx 760 that has so many reviews and videos ,so I need opinions about the card.
Does it has any issues?
How about its power consumption, temperature and noise ?
Has anyone got the card and regret it ?
Thank

I have it. And no I don't regret it.

But let me explain why I chose it. First off there are 3 Sapphire 280x models. The Dual-X is the low end one. Also the 7970 was, and is, an excellent GPU; so simply changing the label to a 280x isn't much of a change and I gladly paid $315 for a 7970. A Toxic one would be great but kind of overkill in my opinion($50 more), so I wanted one that ran cool and quiet and so far my Dual-X has done so @1100MHz.

What helped me decide was the price and the 7970 Dual-X reviews. And I wanted a mild overclock since at stock the 7970 can max out BF4. What more do you need?

As a Dual-X owner, I know there are 0 reviews of that model. Obviously we know there are plenty of Toxic reviews and less so Vapor but we can't find any Dual-X reviews.

Please post a real review if you guys find one.

Lack of reviews is because it is not exactly new card like the GTX760 so less excitement. It is basically a renamed and tweaked HD7970 GHz edition which had plenty of reviews. Being that it is a tried and tested card!
