A few months ago we got a chance to check out the Sapphire R9 270X 2GB TOXIC, and found ourselves extremely impressed with what was being offered from the company. We actually found ourselves so happy with the model, that after we finished looking at it, I made it a personal mission to try and hunt down a second one from Sapphire to see what CrossFire performance looked like.
While it took a few months, we finally got a second R9 270X 2GB TOXIC from Sapphire, and we now find ourselves with the ability to test the card. Along with the ability to test this Sapphire model in CrossFire, it's also the first time we've had the chance to test the R9 270X 2GB in CrossFire.
Due to the fact that we've already had a look at the Sapphire R9 270X 2GB TOXIC in detail, we won't be looking at the card again. If you want to see what exactly we're dealing with, then we recommend you head over to the original review that we linked to in the first paragraph. Instead, today we'll be moving from our introduction, into our test system setup before getting stuck into the performance side of things.
Priced at $239.99, it will be interesting to see just how this $480 setup goes against the more expensive single card setups on offer at the moment. So, with that all said and done, let's stop talking and just get into the testbed before covering the cards that you'll see in our graphs today.
