Heaven performance is strong, and you can see we really do get a great performance gain over the R9 270X 2GB, which sits below the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB Vapor-X OC. Against the model above the R9 280X, you can see that it doesn't sit all that far behind the IceQ X2 Turbo version we have from HIS.

PSO 2 performance is pretty strong here, and you can see that the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB Vapor-X OC performs at almost twice the speed of the R9 270X 2GB. You can see the R9 290 4GB from HIS jumps ahead a fair bit, but overall, the near 10,000 point score from the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB Vapor-X OC is an excellent number.
