Looking at Dirt Showdown, you can see that our overclocked Sapphire R9 270 Dual X 2GB OC actually sees a small drop in performance at the lower resolutions and no change at the highest. While we're never happy about a drop in performance, at least the numbers remain in the playable realm at both 1920 x 1200 and 1680 x 1050.
