I bought a dual-x 280x as soon as it came out.


I have noticed that the newer dual-x cards are fatter and have more fans.


Is there a reason for this? Was the dual-x model line faulty? it's working fine, just curious.

They might have been having problems with the first dual-x cards over heating so they came out with ones with a bigger heatsink and two fans.

I don't think there's anything wrong with the dual-x line, Sapphire makes pretty good cards at least I've never had a problem with them.
