Sapphire Launches Radeon R9 270X Dual-X 4GB Card

Sapphire has announced a new R 270X graphics card, though rather than an ordinary reference model it has a custom card that carries 4 GB of GDDR5 memory.

The graphics card, which will be known as the R9-270X Dual-X 4 GB, features Sapphire's Dual-X cooler. This cooler carries two fans that blow air through an aluminum fin stack, to which heat is fed through a number of copper heat pipes. Additionally, the card has a custom PCB.

The memory on the card is clocked at an effective speed of 5.6 GHz, which when run over a 256-bit wide memory interface allows a bandwidth of 179 GB/s.

    Come in under $400 and you would probably have a winner! This will probably be closer to $500, but we will see.

    Is there any reason why we would buy 4GB memory in 270X? considering that it is not a high end GPU

    I'm looking forward to their 8GB R9 290X card. 4GB is not going to be much in a couple years. I'm already maxing my 3GB with Skyrim and I want to push it all to 4k/8k textures but it just comes to a crawl when I try.
