Starting out with 3DMark 11, you can see we have some great performance out the gate that sees our Sapphire R9 280X 3GB Vapor-X OC get a good performance increase over the R9 270X 2GB.

 

 

3DMark Fire Strike

 

Version and / or Patch Used: 1

Fire Strike performance looks great, and you can see that the Sapphire R9 280X 3GB Vapor-X OC doesn't sit all that far behind the R9 290 4GB IceQ X2 Turbo from HIS, especially when we look at the higher resolution Extreme preset.
