Sapphire originally released their R9 280X Vapor-X back when the R9 280X’s were launched. The card was factory overclocked and featured Sapphire’s Dual-X cooler. Well Sapphire is releasing a new version of the card that makes use of Sapphire’s own exclusive Vapor-X cooling with its new Tri-X triple fan design. This should keep the Tahiti GPU nice a cool.
