Can I under clock a higher end video card to get better performance and lower power than a low end video card?

Specifically, could I under clock a Radeon R9 270X to use less power and get more performance than my current Radeon HD 7770?

Probably not. The R9 270 is just a re-tuned HD 7870 to get a little more performance at the cost of a little more power.
