I would really like to see R9 380X 256Bit vs 384Bit

you'd have to bios hack the R9 380X, plus whats the point? you could just downclock VRAM to get the same result.

this just tells us that color compression is working brilliantly.

You're unlikely to notice a gameplay difference between a 380X and 280X unless a game locks out features because of the VRAM difference.

I still say that RX 480 is ROP limited, it really shows up in older games.

no, color compression can't keep up, it is bandwidth starved.
not every workload can be compressed.

Sure. Stop it.
R9 270X shows its power and efficiency with much less shaders, lower memory bandwith.

R9 280X has 60% shader and 50% higher memory bandwidth

ROPs and tessellation.

R9 290 is actually x2 R9 270X
