    Did I purchase an R9 270X or R9 270?

      I purchased what was supposed to be an R9 270X(product title on amazon). I double checked with the seller that it was a 270X and not a 270 before purchasing because in the picture it showed 270 on the sticker and I wasn't sure if it was 270 or 270 series. They insisted it was a 270X. I got the product today and installed it, and I suspect I was sold a R9 270.

      Here is the amazon page where I purchased it. amazon.com/gp/product/B07D3G3VZJ/ The pictures are accurate to what I got. However, the description lists a clock speed of 1050 MHz, and the Core Clock of 925MHz listed in the Radeon Settings and the CPU-Z stats is, from what I have read online, what the R9 270 has, not the 270X. This is my main concern, as I purchased this card to crossfire with my XFX R9 270X @ 1050MHz. The cards are not crossfired at this time. Could the information in Radeon Settings and CPU-Z be wrong? Was the description of the product wrong? Did they make a 270X with 925 MHz? Can't find any product info for the reference card on AMD's site. Or is this just a R9 270?

      I'm not really sure who to contact about this product to verify it's legitimacy as a 270X, so I'm asking here. Hopefully you all can help me determine if I got a lower quality product than what I was promised. Thanks everyone.
